This is going to be a short post for the November’s We are the World Blogfest (WATWB). It is the Thanksgiving weekend here in the U.S. and between cooking, feeding my face on Thanksgiving Day, and engaging in my own holiday tradition, I’m going to be a tad busy for a few days.
Instead of focusing on a particular person, I thought we could focus on holiday or family traditions. Or create new ones from the possibilities in the following links. Traditions shine a light on the positive, holding families together and making for tasty or fun celebrations.
As for my own traditions, the cat ornament Christmas tree is decorated and I’ll be busy in the kitchen this weekend, making an assortment of Christmas cookies to give to friends and family. I haven’t done the cookie baking thing in at least three years, so I’m excited to try a couple new recipes and embrace a few of the sweet standards from years past.
Yes, I could ship tins of cookies to you, but only if there’s anything left in the freezer by December 15th (doubtful).
What are YOUR family or personal traditions for the holiday season? I’d like to know, if you’d like to share.
Have a wonderful December, Christmas and New Year’s and see you again for #WATWB at the end of January.
“Welcome to the “We are the World Blogfest” (#WATWB ). The #WATWB was inspired by a simple conversation about how all the negativity on social media was weighing on us. Wanting to make a difference we decided to try to do our part to infuse social media with all the good stories that are out there. We hope to share the stories that show kindness, compassion, hope, overcoming challenges and in general, the impressive resilience of the human spirit. For every dark, negative story out there, there is a positive, heartwarming story that will add some light and lift the human spirit.” ~Belinda Witzenhausen~
