Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway Hop, hosted by Stuck in Books!

Let’s talk about holiday traditions. I’m being deliberately inclusive here. I don’t celebrate Christmas, I celebrate Hanukkah instead. You may celebrate both, neither, or something else altogether. My husband and I kind of celebrate December, as in its a great occasion to give each other presents, whether there’s a holiday involved for either of us or not. And we both get a couple of paid holidays from work, which is also a nice thing to celebrate.

While I’ve never had a Christmas tree, for obvious reasons, I have always enjoyed decorating other people’s trees, especially since I’ve never had to clean up the mess. I’ve also had one or more cats continuously for the past “lo these many years” and cats and decorated trees only mix badly, messily, and with broken ornaments and shredded wrapping paper.

What about your holiday traditions, whatever holiday or holidays you celebrate this time of year? Answer in the rafflecopter for your chance at a $10 Amazon Gift Card or a $10 Book from the Book Depository to make your holiday just a bit shinier, whatever it might be.

  1. It *used* to be going all out decorating the house. But there are no longer any small ones to enjoy it so I’ve slacked off. (Actually, I barely do anything now.)

  2. When I was three I made a Christmas Angel out of toilet roll tubes, tinfoil and tinsel. Her head fell off years ago and sometimes we don’t have a tree but for the last 55 years, Angel has come out of her shoe box and taken pride of place in the living room.

  3. My favorite holiday tradition is baking and decorating gingerbread men and women cookies with my grandsons! They love it!
