The ravenous bugblatter beast of Traal


Well there's a community for everything else, why not holidays?

I guess I'll start out with some questions. What holidays do you celebrate? What are your favorite ones, and why? And what makes you especially nerdy about the holidays?

I don't follow any particular religion, but I was raised Christian and I celebrate the Christian holidays. I am in the U.S. so I celebrate all our national holidays as well.

Favorites...hmm. I love Independence Day for the fireworks. I love Halloween because I get to dress up like anything I want. I love Thanksgiving because I love to cook and the food is always wonderful. My favorite holiday, however, is Christmas, maybe because I was born in December, or maybe just because I have so many fond memories of Christmas traditions.

What makes me nerdy? Well, I absolutely refuse to get a fake Christmas tree, even though my parents, and now my husband, have often begged me to. I will not allow it. I insist on dressing up for Halloween alongside my son, and probably enjoy trick-or-treating more than he does. I will not, under any circumstances, miss out on seeing fireworks every July 4.

That's all I can think of for now. :-)
