Questions:

What’s your remedy for the Holiday blues?

Just comedies, comedy and even comedies! There are some fantastic Christmas comedy specials out there!

Your favorite beverage (if it differs) during the holiday season?  If it doesn’t differ, just answer the ‘what’s your favorite beverage” part. 

I have an entire assortment of favourite beverages. I have actually recently gotten into egg nog. Oh my goodness, I was missing out there! I enjoy more milkshakes around this time of year. Here in Australia, it’s Summer, so the weather is warmer. Anything minty as well. The same with my response last week with the mint chocolate ice-cream. I also enjoy glasses of white sweet wine,lol

This one has been asked before, but what’s your take on pumpkin spice?

I’ve never honestly had it,lol

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 don’t really believe in a God for Christmas or anything. I believe in what the spirit of Christmas is supposed to be. The only thing that bothers me is when people say that people are at War with Christmas, because Starbucks put “Happy Holidays” on a cup. Or when Trump says things like Obama wont let people say “Merry Christmas”, when there was absolutely no proof of that. That bothers me.

I have no problem with “Happy Holidays” in general, anyway. Not everyone on planet Earth celebrates Christmas. We celebrate Christmas, but my family doesn’t celebrate a Christian Christmas. But we all enjoy the holidays and breaks we get because of it, and why not?.

Gratitude:

Share a song that you enjoy during this Winter season (whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, The Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa and so forth.

What traditional Christmas decoration is actually a parasitic plant?

I don’t actually know, I feel like I’ve been told this in the past though. Too the Google! Oh my goodness, it’s Mistletoe!

Name something about this holiday season (whatever version you may celebrate) that most people like, but you dislike?

I think just liking Christmas?Hahaha…Maybe it was just the mood this year. I have to be honest, I don’t “dislike” but I don’t consider New Years, to be a “New Year” I feel like our own birthdays are a “new year”. I know that it sounds weird, and I get it’s a new Calendar Year. I like to do the “refreshing” new year, new me. On my birthday.

What’s your favorite – or least favorite –  song sung traditionally at this time of year?

There’s actually an entire Christmas cd that I love and loved for years. If you know who Boney M is (Ra-Ra-Rasputin) In 1986 (I believe) they brought out a whole Christmas CD and I play the whole cd every year!

And the last one ———>  In the song “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer,” what “incriminating” evidence was found on Grandma’s back?

Oh my goodness, Christmas is quite dangerous!lol…I had to Google this one too because I don’t even think I’ve heard of the song before. Is it Claus? Or “Claws”?

Finally:    What would you like to share with the world, if time or cost were no object?

Without a doubt, kindness. I sometimes feel the world is sorely lacking that these days. I got into an argument with someone I use to respect today. They actually think Trump saying they’re taking the US Troops out is going to happen. Not only that though this person does not seem to care that Trump doesn’t actually seem to have a plan. Then, for some reason, this person turned it into a whole Liberals just don’t want the Troops home? LITERALLY NO LIBERAL IS SAYING THAT! We are saying that there needs to be a plan. History has not be kind to the people who are suddenly taken away, people tend to get more aggressive. Not “Oh, okay then, we’ll just let you leave”.

Father’s Day (Australia)

Firstly, do not panic if you see a lot of “Happy Fathers Day” on posts today…It’s just in Australia (I think).

Just like Mother’s Day it is not observed as a public holiday in Australia. However, a lot of businesses are closed on Sunday, mainly retail being opened still. However a lot of people take their children to parks, zoos maybe the movies. My partner and I went to the movies yesterday to see “The Meg” and there were so many fathers with their sons, I wonder how that went.

So:

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads, but especially mine =P Too all the step-dads, the furbaby dads, the adopted dads, a special heart for the Dads no longer here💝, the Dads that don’t babysit their kids ~.^ The new Dads, the Dads who are now “GreatDads, The “Dads” that step up…And if you all see a “special person day” cake…Don’t get it if you don’t want it -.- My Dad is a special person ~.^ hehe

 

All By Myself

By the time you read this…My Mum and Brother will be in Hong Kong, having a nice little holiday while I take care of the dog.

I am totally cool with it though. I don’t think I trust my anxiety to fly on such a long flight.

What do I do though? The only plan I have is too go through my cupboards and just take all the week and a bit they’re gone too go through…and just chuck!

It’s a Holiday!

44. Your favourite Holiday

Without a doubt my favourite holiday is Christmas. It’s just my favourite time of the year. Have you ever seen this picture?

Christmaas

(I’m the one at the bottom)

I just love what Christmas represents too me. It’s not even about the gifts, it’s about spending time with people that I love and who love me…and the food! It’s about family, sitting together, laughing and just having a good time together. Where for one day I am lucky enough to not worry about anything.

Share Your World … Week 45

Describe your own outlook on life in seven words or less. (NOTE: does not have to be a sentence.)

Ideal realist. Goddess Warrior Sprite. Not Usual.

Where do you like to vacation?

I like to vacation somewhere, where it’s warm and I can just relax. Somewhere were all the spots to go are close and within reach, so i don’t have to go far,lol.

Candy factories (sweets or treats including chocolate) of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots?

Oh wow! The power! The decisions! I would probably have to go with “Werther’s Original” candies. I have loved them my entire love. I’m not really a huge candy fan, but they are always up there!

Complete this sentence: Something that anyone can do that will guarantee my smile is… 

Just to be kind to me, genuinely kind. Not that whole I’m pretending to be kind to get something out of you. That and funny YouTube videos.

Labor Day

Today is South Australia’s Labor Day, so what better way to celebrate it then do absolutely nothing at all!

nothingatall

For those who don’t know what a Labour Day (I honestly forget every single year that we even have one, I keep thinking that it’s strictly an American thing). Labour Day is where a lot of Government industries will shut down for the day, to celebrate and recognise the hard work they’ve been putting in all year. Now in South Australia a lot of our Industries shut down on this day, retail, etc included. In America this seems to be more up to that particular company.

It is observed in Western Australia on the first Monday in March and on the second Monday in March in Victoria and Tasmania. The Northern Territory observes Labour Day on the first Monday in May. It is held on the first Monday of October in Queensland, the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, and South Australia. Until 2012, Queensland observed Labour Day on the first Monday in May.

We have had Labour Day in Australia for just over a Century, in the 1800’s people were  typically working 6 days a week, and were working 12 hour days. On April 21, 1856, stonemasons at the University of Melbourne marched to Parliament House and pushed for an eight-hour working day. An agreement with employers for a 48-hour week was eventually reached and the workers welcomed the new eight-hour day.

So what do you readers when you have an unexpected day off?

Yay! Mental Holidays!

The last couple of months I had full on weekends and this past weekend was going to be no different. I’m one of those people who feels like when I’ve been invited to something…I have to go or at least if I can’t go send something or get them something next time.

This weekend I said NO!lol

It was brilliant, it was amazing, it was exactly what I needed. Sometimes you just need a break, sometime you just need to turn into a hermit. It’s that time of year where I don’t think you “required” to attend everything, it’s too cold!

I am breaking out the wine tonight!

Here are some other links, for those days when you need a mental holiday:

Share Your World … Week 16

If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts?  Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected?

I don’t really have anything wrong with my vision at the moment, but I think that I’d prefer contacts. I’ve seen lots of people with glasses and they lose them all the time!

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

Red…Definitely Red, I got offered a job I don’t want but I’m not sure how to say “No” without appearing ungrateful or giving myself a bad reputation. I took the job because I was desperate, but I’ve got other opportunities coming up.

Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?

School was difficult for me as I was suffering from Dyslexia and pretty much through the whole of high school I’d get the same comments. It wasn’t until after high school that we discovered what my issues were, which is kind of sad really. I always wonder if I would have done better.

Would you rather take a 1 or 2 week vacation with an organized tour or take a cruise of your choice?

I’d rather take a cruise of my choice, but does it have to be cruise? I get sea sickness =P hehe
