Holidays!
« on: December 06, 2012, 10:58:27 PM »
Just thought that with the big holiday season approaching, it'd be fun to have a place to talk about it. What holidays do you celebrate? What kinds of traditions do you have? What are you favorites/least favorites? This doesn't have to be just December holidays, you can talk about anything!

I'll start: My family has a mostly Catholic background, so as for winter holidays, Christmas is the big one. To be honest though I prefer to celebrate it as a more laid back, kind of secular holiday (I'm not really religious). Traditions aren't that important to me, but I like spending the day with close family/loved ones, maybe watching some Christmas movies, etc. Decorating the tree is also really fun. :3

I love decorating the tree and we have a Christmas movie marathon on Christmas eve. I also enjoy celebrating the more religious part of the holiday.

I love the end of the year. Just the whole atmosphere. Sinterklaas for the kiddies of course. Christmas with family, presents, DELISH food. And going all out with friends on NYE. It's the perfect way to recharge since i just spend the majority of it in comfy Jammies.

Our old traditions, Christmas tree shopping and the family decorating the tree, have died. We still celebrate Noche Buena though, in which we stay up Christmas Eve and when it is midnight, we feast.

Same! Big family gatherings super stress me out, so usually Christmas is kinda bleh for me. But this year I'm staying in Spain and Hercules is coming to visit, so yay!

Christmas is always nice, but I have still yet to have a good New Year's Eve. I celebrate it because I feel I have to though.

God, how do you people keep up with all that family? We can only handle our small immediate family generally, so that's all we keep it to nowadays.

I dunno when I'll be able to visit the States but we could always compromise and meet in Hawaii.

I love Christmas, not for the religious reasons (there aren't really any for me), but because it's such a happy and great time at year. :-)

I celebrate the major Church feasts, like the coming Nativity of our Lord (Christmas) and Pascha (Easter). Of course, I also observe secular holidays like New Year, which is great as it is a time of optimism.

Christmas is always a time to spend with my family and the kiddies get tons of presents. In California we'd fire up the BBQ, since it was about 75 degrees outside! Just last night the boyfriend and I set up our little Christmas tree. This year is also our first Christmas together too :3

EPIC Christmas tree! (click to show/hide)

xD yeah, I don't have room for my own Christmas tree in Spain, so I got this little plastic thing from a dollar store. It changes colors between red, green, and blue. It's cute. :3

^ Sweet. XD

This is my first year away at college, so it's also my first year not getting to go pick out a tree with my family...that was a bummer. D: But I think this also makes Christmas itself more special--I get to see all my family again (some of them for the first time in months) and it's a great homecoming/family feeling and yeah. :3
