It’s that time of year!!! The air is getting colder and happiness and cheer just seem to be in an extreme abundance,unless your a Scrooge or a Grinch of course. It’s a time of year that we spend with family and friends making memories and celebrating many festivals, holidays, and celebrations! But for me personally this time of year is about traditions and rituals of sorts: advent calanders filled with chocolate, advent wreaths, Yule logsand solstice greens, gifts, and feasts but not just those traditions but the ones we start within our own families. For me it’s my penguin ornaments! My aunt started giving me 1-3 penguins every Christmas since I left home in 2009. They are my very favorite thing. They are the first to go up and the last to go down (besides the lights) and every other ornament gets placed based on where my penguins hang. I’m starting accumulate enough that eventually they will need their own tree (which is totally fine with me). So here’s to traditions and memories from me to you!
P.S. It’s not just ornaments! Hehe more on the magical penguin obsession in a later post!
