Here we go with Melanie’s first SYW for December.
What’s your remedy for the Holiday blues?
It depends on whether the blues are whilst you’re on holiday (it happens!) or afterwards.
Retail therapy has never been of interest to me, though food is, so whilst on holiday it makes sense to sample the local cuisine, or at least their sweet pastries and confectionery.
Back off holiday and it’s still food, but any extravagance is curtailed due to probable overspending whilst away.
However, if preparing for the holiday season, blue is not my colour as it’s an excuse to get in some special goodies (food again).
Your favorite beverage (if it differs) during the holiday season? If it doesn’t differ, just answer the ‘what’s your favorite beverage” part.
Tea, though I may go for a latte coffee.
This one has been asked before, but what’s your take on pumpkin spice?
I’ve never had it so can’t say.
Is there is a person or god connected with your holiday?
- Who are they and do you believe in them?
- If you do not believe in these people or gods, does the celebration/honoring of that being, bother you in any way (e.g., ignored, dismissed, angry, etc.)?
I celebrate Christmas and Easter by tradition rather than religion, however, it does annoy me when those traditions are under threat because of pandering to minorities.
My gratitude song is
It never fails to lift my spirits regardless of the season.
