Who knew tailoring was so much fun?

The holidays are coming up, it might be interesting to swap crafts and traditions from our areas of the world, or our family traditions. Maybe  like a "care" package introducing your partner to new traditions. Ornaments, celebrations, favorite holiday treats and recipes, versions of "Santa" or Father Christmas. How do you celebrate advent, Christmas, Hanukkah, solstice, coming of the light, the new year....

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I think that would be totally awesome!  I would be up for that!  It would only really work if we had people from all over the world though I think.

that is a good point. I couldn't even tell you where my traditions come from, they aren't "American". We would always put our shoes out on St. Nicolas day.

Nice idea. 

As an Aussie I would definitely find this amusing.  There is no snow, no fire-place to hang a stocking on, turkey is not popular and it is stinking hot!  Seafood & salad Christmas dinners, beach cricket, day-long boxing day BBQs and greeting cards depicting either a surfing Santa in boardies or Santa's sleigh being pulled by kangaroos.  These are all features of the Australian holiday season, those that first come to mind anyhow.  I saw the big guy in red distributing presents from the back of a ute once.  It cracked me up.

You may want to try posting on the international boards, to get the non-US numbers up.  If they do need boosting at any point that is.  It seemed to help with the 'My Country Doesn't Have That' swap round that I participated in.

This is an awesome idea! Though I don't know if I have much in the way of cool customs to share...though now that I have a 3 year old I've been planning to revive some anyway. Smiley
