December 19th: Thursday Art Date With Rain - Holiday Stories, Carols and Lore

Pomander Balls symbolize the return of the Sun at Yuletide

Hello Friends! :)

December 19th's theme for our art date is: Holiday Stories, Carols and Lore (please visit Rain's Garden on Thursday December 19th to post your link!)

This week I'm challenging you to not just create a visual piece, maybe add a story behind why you chose to create it! What do you think? There is so much to choose from, I can't wait to see what you come up with!


Holiday Stories: Do you have a favourite story you want to share about the holidays? Is there a particular tale that is a tradition in your home? Do you watch the same movies every year? I have a list of Christmas movies and specials that I watch over and over each year and I never tire of them! I also have a Christmas story where a friend of mine had too much spiked eggnog and ended up wrestling the Christmas tree...lol...what an idiot lol...he will never live that one down!


Holiday Carols: Do you sing Christmas carols? Do you listen to Christmas music? I have to say that I really need self-control in this department! I like to start the Christmas music in November! I can't get enough of Elvis' Christmas albums!


Holiday Lore: As a Pagan, I've learned about a lot of lore that surrounds the Yuletide season. I really enjoy reading about Celtic lore especially because it's my ancestry. I perform some of these rituals and traditions every holiday season out of spirituality, respect and also out of pure fun! Do you have any specific folklore practices that you follow during the holidays?

Here are some more internet images to inspire you!
