What is on your holiday wish list this year? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]
A plane ticket to the states, check. A plane ticket home, check. I could use some books but I don't have anymore room in my apartment. I really, really want a cat. A little kitty to keep me company, one who wasn't a young kitten but an older cat who needs adopting and love. There are so many out there who have no one to care for them and all cats should because they're the best.

The problem is getting said kitty over here. Airlines don't allow pets to be carried on in the cabin on transatlantic flights. :(

Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays

Which December holidays do you celebrate, and why? One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here]
I celebrate Christmas and/or Yule. A generic, mostly-secular Western holiday in december where we get a break from school and the cities light up with trees and decorations. I adore the scents and flavors of the season, the feeling in the air, the chance for family to get together, and the excuse to shop.

I don't celebrate a religious holiday. Some of my family does, some of us don't, and what matters is that we get together and see each other once a year. We have an annual Christmas Eve party where all our friends come over, we drink, we dine, and we enjoy life and each other's presence.

On a spiritual level, I recognize the longest night of the year, and I burn through a lot of Christmas scented candles. I regularly drink Christmas tea, and peppermint hot cocoa, and spiced cider or vin chaud. I wear red and gold and green and I huddle close to a fire or under a blanket.

Those are my winter holidays.
