We want to know what holidays you celebrate and what holiday traditions are important in your family or culture! Your answers might inspire some new designs/item sets for the holiday season!

Every year, my family will put on A Christmas Story and play it all day on christmas day. We do not unwrap present until the movie starts. It's the only tradition I really have on the holidays

My mom (filipina) used to celebrate the Moon-Festival before moving to the States, but sometimes we celebrate it by picking up mooncakes and ube hopia at the local east Asian goods store. It is formally called the "Mid-Autumn Festival" and celebrates harvest and good fortune. There isn't a permanent day of the month (Wikipedia says the holiday occurs on the "15th day of the eighth month of the Chinese calendar"), and we only know it comes up when the local Asian store starts going ham with stocking up mooncakes. Then that's pretty much what we do the rest of the day. Eat mooncakes and ube hopia. I'm pretty detached from my mom's culture unfortunately, which is something that I am in the process of changing. Honestly, I'd be thrilled to see Philippine-related pet designs and items.

My sister and I always try to make cinnamon ornaments for our friends every year. They are a fun, cheap, and smell good gift and we have fun doing it!

We also make Christmas cookies every year. We try to find new cut outs to make new shapes. We LOVE it!

We also do the Christmas Pickle. Whoever finds it on the tree gets a bag of candy!
Rats! Rats! We are the rats!

My favorite holiday is Halloween, but I've been real sad about it because over the past decade, trick-or-treaters have stopped going door to door and no one even seems to celebrate it anymore. No parties, No community day with some activity. Hardly anyone even gets pumpkins anymore. It makes me really sad to see my favorite holiday slowly get swept under the rug. After that, my favorite Holiday is Independence Day, because I really love the fireworks displays and setting off fireworks.

Got to be Christmas for me, even more so now that I have my own place to decorate.

Hanging up lights on the outside of the house and decorating and hanging stockings are massive highlights of tradition for me.

It's kind of hard to explain, but I like to celebrate the Summer Solstice/Winter Solstice, as well as the Autumn Equinox/Spring Equinox. I also celebrate May Day ^^

Other than that, I typically celebrate the "standard" holidays that exist. (Christmas Eve/Christmas, New Years Eve/New Years Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Halloween, etc.)

For traditions, it's typically just kindhearted, responsible fun! I try to stick to the guidelines for basic celebratory techniques when it comes to the Solstice/Equinox holidays, but since I'm in an extremely bright, hot climate, I do my best to make the most of the Summer Solstice especially c:

I always have drinks made up for the holiday I'm celebrating, whether that means I'll be having some refreshing homemade lemonade, natural teas, or dark hot cocoa with some Whipped cream around the rim of the mug <3

I make a family recipe of tiger butter every year, basically marbled milk and white chocolate and peanut butter. When I still lived with my parents, our stockings were almost as important as the christmas tree itself. if we didnt have a physical fireplace, we would get big pieces of contruction paper and poster and we'd make one and then hang our stockings on the wall with it and we always opened them first. The other thing was that any letters we got from family went onto the tree with the ornaments.

Oh and eggnog, eggnog and sparkling cider were HUGE holiday drinks for us.

My family doesn't celebrate "traditional" holidays- we make our own Food Holidays where we all get together and cook for each other. We also have Plantsgiving, where for an entire week, we gift each other plants secretely. At the end, we give each individual plant a rating from 1-5 and that ends up being the giver's score, and then we have a foodie get together. The one with the highest score doesn't have to do any cooking, and the one with the lowest score has to do all the dishes. Plantsgiving is my favorite of our food holidays.
