Holidays and/or Traditions

Post by hsimone »

Do you have any holidays that you celebrate this time of year? Or any traditions that you particularly enjoy?

If so, what are the holiday(s) and/or traditions you partake this time of year?

Thanks hsimone for that question. I love Christmas/holiday season. It's the best time of the year for me. I enjoy the togetherness it creates while people are preparing for Christmas day and New year day. 😀

No worries, thank you for answering!

Ah, I love Christmas/holiday season, too. Being with loved ones and just taking the time to slow down and enjoy the time you spend with people means a lot to me. (Having delicious food helps, too :wink: ) :D

I love being home with family for the holidays. I am Italian, so it's a pretty big deal. We get to catch up, cook together, eat lots of delicious food, decorate the house, play Christmas music and share the love. :)

When I was small, I used to love learning carols for Christmas and there was this occasion of singing them in front of prominent persons. That used to give us the start of holidays feeling. And now, I've grown from then, leaving that tradition to childhood. Ah, sweet memories!

That sounds like a lovely time! Definitely loved ones, food, music, and decorating help bring in the magical spirit that Christmas can bring. Thanks for sharing! :D

Aw, I love that one of your fondest memories is learning Christmas carols and singing them to people! Though you may not do that now, that is a lovely memory to cherish. Thank you for sharing! :D

Christmas is my favorite holiday to bond with family. My wife's birthday is on Christmas. Our tree has all homemade ornaments.
