      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Do your hobbies lend themselves to holidays?

4 posts in this topic

With several holidays on the horizon - Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year's - I'm wondering if any of your hobbies/interests/sports/passions lend themselves to any of these occasions? Perhaps you love to cook, and so preparing dishes for TG or Xmas is right up your alley. Or maybe crafting is your hobby, and you've made a cornucopia for your TG table or enjoy making your own decorations for Xmas or Hanukkah, etc. Or you're a shutterbug and the holidays give you plenty of opportunity to indulge your passion. Or??

Then again, perhaps you'd rather be out skiing (if it's possible) just when it's time to gather around the holiday dinner table. Or maybe you'd rather be taking in an opera. Or??

Currently crocheting mermaid afghans for the 3 grandgirlies....variegated shades of pinks/purples, each is a different yarn.   MermaidAfghan_medium2.jpg

I have to do 3... if one got this and the other two didn't...I'd have a wailing, sobbing mutiny on my hands.

And baking...love to cook & bake. I'll do pecan pie for Thanksgiving, whatever I'm supposed to make for the Christmas Eve pot luck along with the 'family' Christmas cookie. If I have time, I'll make DH's prize winning fudge this year.

Oooo! Can I have one? (JK, of course, JK!) These afghans are awesome, IMO. What lucky girls!

Yum! You're making my mouth water!

Yes

I have about 15 beaded stuffed felt ornaments my MGM made about 50 years ago and then when my kids were little, I embroidered more.  I also have some plastic cross stitch I made so the kids could decorate the tree and not worry about breaking things.  

The last two winters, I filet crocheted covers for some plain red and green ornaments.  My tree looks so vintage and I love it now.  Simply putting out my granny's handiwork makes my Christmas.
