Share Your World … Week 51

What is your favorite holiday?

I would have to say that it’d be between Christmas and Easter, but it’s mainly because a lot of those type of holidays, we spend with family, and I think that’s why they are my favourite holidays. I would say Christmas tips the scales just that little bit more because people are more willing to get together around that holiday, rather than Easter.

What types of food is associated with your holiday?

I guess it’s would be very English food, kind of traditional food, I guess you would say. We have the Turkey, the Ham, lot’s of boiled vegetables and I love Brussel sprouts! We do the pudding and the Christmas cake.

Do you travel for your holiday?

I don’t usually, we’ve been going to a family members house every year. I travel about 30 minutes to go to their travel, so I do “travel”lol…Next year though I will have too and I am not looking forward to it, it’ll be one of my first Christmas’s away. I will be driving about 3 hours to get to my partners side of the family.

Is it a religious or spiritual holiday?

The great thing about my family is that we are all so different, and we all have different beliefs backgrounds and we get along so well. So it’s kind of a everything holiday,lol

Is there a gift exchange?

Yeah, as we have gotten older the presents between the adults has gotten less. We’re now at the point where with the adults we just do a Secret Santa.

How long does the celebration last?

Usually just the day, but we sometimes catch up a couple of days to celebrate some of family members birthday who were born in that week.

  1. I like the idea of Secret Santa. How does it work exactly? We need to do something about the crazy gift exchange in our family! Happy Holidays from Finland!

    1. What we do is a couple of months before Christmas, we pick names from a hat (or something like that), pick a budget. Than a couple of weeks later we email a list to everyone with a few things we’d like. Sorry about the delay in answer, I’ve been away =D Someone has to be willing to make the list. Oh! We also makes tags that are exactly the same, so you can’t give anything away with your handwriting.
