Christmas Advent Blog Adventure: day 9
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/pick-your-gadget/
Welcome to Day 9 of the Great Advent Blog Adventure! For today, the two topics I will explore are:
From the Christmas Postathon (https://4wallsnaroof.wordpress.com/2015/11/30/the-christmas-postathon/): A tradition you enjoyed as a child.
And from the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories (http://adventcalendar.geneabloggers.com/): Christmas crafts. Making things by hand…me?
I don’t really remember any specific traditions that I looked forward to every year from when I was a child. I remember every other year we would travel, either to Las Vegas (my aunt and uncle and cousins lived there) or later to Florida (to my grandma and grandpa’s – on my mother’s side), and since in those days I lived in a place of cold and snow in December, the years we had green Christmases were kind of fun and memorable (especially the fireworks New Year’s Eve in downtown Vegas!). Were those traditions? Probably not really, but those are the Christmases I remember the most from childhood.
As for crafts, I remember vaguely trying to make gifts at one time – needlepoint and the like. Lasted about one year. Mom is always crocheting blankets for us, but my skills on the crafty side are pretty much non-existent.
And now, kitties relaxing.
