What fun traditions surround the holidays for you?
Our family has traditions of making time to drive around and look at the lights, singing carols together, having broccoli and hollandaise sauce for our festive meal.
As the season winds down, we’ve almost completed celebrating all of these, which is a big accomplishment when we all live in different towns, now!
Traditions mean even more when a family member is diagnosed with cancer, as was my Mom a few weeks before Thanksgiving this year. She’s undergoing treatment and currently doing well, but it does bring perspective.
So I’m happy to participate in a tradition of painting a snow person each year. Karen Margulis does this every year and invited those of us on her Patreon to contribute. I haven’t painted in a week because it’s clean out time in the studio… My painting time has been used for that the last week.
