Blog Challenge: Blog About a Holiday Tradition

Your blogging challenge this week is dedicated to the holidays which fall, for most cultures, in the last month or so of the year. Be it Thanksgiving and Christmas, Hanuka, Ramadan, Kwanzaa, or whatever holidays occur for your culture, religion or nation.

Your blogging challenge is:

Blog about a traditional holiday ritual, habit, memory, or aspect of your holiday.

Did your family have strong traditions kept year after year? What were they? Do you have a specific memory associated with them? Does your family do something different than most families within your cultural or religious group? What are the traditions associated with your cultural or religious group during these times?

Or share a fun, silly, sad, or personal memory of the holidays. Did something happened during the holidays that now influences your feelings about them every year? Or did something happen that mended your memories of holidays past?

How do you celebrate the holidays? What are the traditions? What are the rituals?

Share a holiday story or information on your traditional holidays on your blog. As usual, put a link in your blog post to create a trackback here, or return and comment with the link to your blog post. If you don’t have a blog post, you can tell your story here in the comments, but please, keep it short and to the point.

These are published weekly and are an attempt to kick your blogging ass. They serve to challenge your thinking and efforts in blogging and blog writing. To participate, start challenging yourself now. Today. Go for it.

    Err.. Can I blog about how we Chinese go by Ramadan looking for food for lunch in a Muslim-dominated state in Malaysia? LOL. It was difficult because being a Muslim-dominated state, there are only 3 Chinese food stalls within a 10km radius from the university.

    So we either ate at the same ol’ place, or travel to town (which is about 17km away) for lunch.

    But I’m glad this is going to be over soon (it will be Aidil Fitri this Saturday) and the Malay food stalls will once be open. WooHoo!

    @pelf:

    It’s that or blog about how you learned to grow your own, cook your own, dehydrate your own, and process your own food so you are not dependent upon the rituals of your government. :D

    Actually, while I was living in Israel, we’d stock up on EVERYTHING before Pessach (Passover) as anything with a hint of wheat, flour, etc., in it was not to be sold within the country – anywhere. They blocked off and wrapped up whole aisles in the grocery stores. Then we got smart and planned vacations during those time periods.

    ok, as Pelf said, it’s Eid on Saturday, and I planned to ‘video blog’ of our celebrations that day (it’s a small celebration, but celebration nonetheless), does that count? if so, I’ll post the link on Sunday. :)
