December is a month filled with religious significance for so many. Christmas(Dec 24-25) and Chanukah(Nov 28-Dec 6). Christians speak of the light coming into the world at Christmas and
Chanukah is the festival of lights when the light was returned to the newly cleansed temple in Jerusalem. So they have a common connection.
Let's talk about December and what it has in store for you....
1. How much importance do you place on December holidays? Do you plan and prepare? Is that part of the fun for you or would you rather dispense with it?
The holidays are very important in my family and to me. We start planning (especially the meals) in mid-October! I have more fun in the planning and preparing than in the actual celebration :)
2. Food is a big part of the holiday season. Which foods and treats do you most look forward to having?
Christmas Cookies and FUDGE! lol
3. It is a season for family, friends, guests and giving. Would you write a bit about how it all comes together for you in December?
Like I mentioned above, we starting planning and preparing in October for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I try to get almost everything prepared by December 1st so that I can sit back and enjoy the festivities.
4. Life changes and traditions alter due to those changes. Has anything changed for you and if so how? If not, would you mind sharing your traditions with us?
Life is always changing. Some changes are wonderful and some are sad. The past few years have taught me that not everything HAS to go as planned. I can still choose JOY!
