Welcome to Day 3 of my 5 or so Days of Holiday Happy - 5 or so days of celebrating Gnoma Claus from my Holiday Happy fabric.
I gained 4 pounds just reading Day 2’s comments! I promise, today’s 5osDofHH is 100% fat free. At least for me. I can’t help it if someone eats half a dozen devil’d eggs while
writing reading this post. Today I’ve got a printable download - happy little Gnoma Lights.
The lights for me symbolize love, family and traditions - and being far from home and away from my family. We’ve been a military family for the last 21 years, and in 1993 when we moved to Honolulu and had our first holiday away from my family and all our traditions… we started a new tradition - we spent every Christmas Eve going to downtown to Honolulu Hale to see all the city and county departments’ decorated trees and all the light displays at Honolulu City Lights. It was fun and different and it was exciting to start a new tradition.
I refused to let a giant ocean get in the way of my family’s fun and joy - and I was adamant about starting a new tradition. I look back at our seven Christmas’ on the island with love and smiles - and proud of myself being ya-hoo smug instead of being bah hum-bug. There’s always light. We just have to twist our own bulbs to “on” sometimes.
Download, print, cut and enjoy.
Q: What’s your favorite holiday and it’s tradition(s) and/or what holiday tradition(s) did you start? Did you twist your own bulb to “on”?
