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.
