Journal Entry: Mon Dec 24, 2012, 3:03 AM
:santa: It's almost over, there are now only two tasks left with today's and tomorrow's. I'm just amazed that I've been able to put up these tasks each day without somehow skipping at least one day. =P

Yesterday, I asked you to welcome at least five new deviants using the today page. There were 34 of you who participated, and here is the winning number;
Day10winner by Nyiana-sama

:la: With the number 11, Allyntu is the winner! She wins either a Fella plushie or a Super Llama plushie.

:eager: Now onto today's task.

Today is Christmas Eve, and for a lot of families who celebrate Christmas, it can mean spending time together, going to mass, or any other tradition that they find meaningful.

Today, I want you to explain how and/or why the holidays are meaningful to you.


Just write down what the holidays mean, and you will be eligible to win a deviantartGEAR T-shirt of your choice*

*Depending on availability.

All prizes will be distributed after December 25th

I like them because it's a time to celebrate Jesus' birthday, and also a fun time where instead of stressing over commissions and collabs and art trades, I get to relax and be the 13 year old I am C:
Also I love making gift art ; 7 ;

The holidays mean I can actually visit some of my friends who live very far from me. We usually get together with our families and have a dinner party or something.

For me, the holidays are important because my family are all together, and we have fun together, from decorating our Christmas tree to unwrapping presents.

Holidays are important to me because it's when the whole family gets together, we share our home with our friends and cook up a feast. We catch up because we barely get to see each other all year?

Holidays are important to me because of the unique feel around that time of year. It's nice to be brought to a different world every once in a while. In fact, I think people NEED that. The holidays do that and that's why they are meaningful to me.

The holidays are meaningful to me because I get presents!

Just kidding! It's because it's a chance for my family to gather from all the far locations they've gone off too, if only just for a day. It's also a nice universal time of relaxation to try and unwind from the stressful events in our lives.

I love the spirit of the holidays. Even though my family is not religious, Christmas is the one time of year that we attend Church to enjoy the music, celebration, and good will of friends and community. Christmas is also when we visit most of our more distant friends and family, driving down to their area and staying the night in a motel. It's a welcome change in routine, especially as an escape from my hectic school work and projects. Everyone celebrates the holidays in one way or another, even if they do not believe in Christmas.

It's meaningful because it's like a family reunion but more happy. It's a happy time with happy things going on, and it's probably the only time my family isn't yelling at each other. ^^;

actually, this year I had to do some soul searching before I could answer this one. But I like to think that with me, the real meaning of the holidays is reflection. Reflecting on how your year was, how you'd been, how your family has been.

That's why I get irked at last minute shoppers. No time to reflect.

Enjoy your holidays.
