Hugs for the Holidays. Posting contest ends 12/13

Postby Angelic Rose (107404295) » Fri Nov 20, 2020 7:48 am

The holidays can be stressful for folks and well, that's a huge understatement for this entire year. With the holidays upon us and unfortunately,COVID 19 as well, many of us are unable to do the things that we loved to do at this time of year. So in the spirit of the holidays and one of love and compassion, I thought long and hard over a fun contest to boost moral. Because Lord knows, we all could use a little.

The general idea is to post anything holiday related. Food pics, family pics (not real ones but family related), traditions, your tree, your home, your decor, whatever floats your boat. There will be no bashing of others, no bashing of religions or beliefs, no bashing of opinions. We all are entitled free speech and our right to say what we want within reason and with conscience and empathy.

My main rule: Be kind to one another as he first loved you.

Ugh! So sorry you are so far from your family. Especially tough this time of year. Sending warm, comforting thoughts your way :hug:


We are currently debating skipping Thanksgiving dinner due to covid. If we go, it would be 10 of us total. Luckily, even if we stay home, I have my husband and two boys. I'm not sure when I'm going to decorate for Christmas. Probably the first weekend in December. I requested it off because my son is have his wisdom teeth removed.

In the meantime, one of my decorations from last year (pinecone decorated by one of my children in preschool) . . .

We normally have family gatherings for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year will be different due to our states mandates which limits things. So my husband got a ham (not a turkey) and we will enjoy each other's company and be thankful for all our many blessings. We do not know yet what we will be doing for Christmas but I have already started shopping. I love to be prepared, I normally start shopping a few months before Christmas. I know that a lot of people are having a hard time with life and I try to stay positive. We all need love, support and encouragement to make it through these difficult times. Hoping that the new year will be a good one! :angel:

What a beautiful idea, I have had the worst year of my life, living alone in isolation, I spend every xmas alone, having cancer and been a key worker around the death everyday, is not the one! So tysm for your event, despite it all I still love xmas and I still love gifting others. :D :gift:

EDIT - ALL I NEED FOR XMAS IS MY DOG. :heart:

It has been such a hard, stressful year for so many and there are so many that cannot be around friends and family.
We are lucky that we live in a small area with not much of the covid--but daily our numbers are getting higher and people getting sicker.
My wish is for everyone to remain safe and healthy and to remember that we all have issues and we should ALL be nicer to each other.

I breed English bulldogs and the one thing I do each year is a 25 Days Of Christmas with my bulldogs. It makes me happy to see the joy the photos bring to people.
This is my little man Apollo--we call him Lo for short--well, because his is short--just like me :D :D

Nice contest, Thank you.
I'm not decorating or putting a tree up this year, I just don't feel like going through the trouble and I won't have anybody here this year, I always spend Chrsitmas at my parents house anyway. So, I decided to put up a Festivus Pole instead, it will make me just as happy as christmas decorations as Seinfeld is one of my favorite shows and always makes me laugh, I have good memories attached to the show as well.

Angelic Rose, thank you YET AGAIN for another amazing contest. Your last was so pleasant and got to meet so many wonderful Yo's - and I expect nothing less will come of this one, but this time with holiday cheer!!! Super stoked for the holidays this year - I feel we need the holiday cheer now more than ever! Though, for those who don't know, I'm a dancer at Disney World and have been furloughed since March, causing me to come home to be with my family in NY. I have been enjoying my time here and was super eager to return to Orlando, but anticipated at this point returning after the holidays. I was called last week stating I'll be starting back up two days after Thanksgiving, and as happy as I am to return, I was so ready to spend the holidays with my family. Bittersweet for sure, but nonetheless we can't let anything ruin this special season for us, however you chose / are having to celebrate it. Looking forward to being on Yo this Christmas as I've taken a few year hiatus, and it's my fav season on this game, and happy to have this thread to spread some positivity and cheer as well!


HUGS to all!!! :hug:

Happy Holidays Everyone,
And I agree this is the time of year for kindness and love.
And this year. I have my mom and dad and one of my sisters coming for Thanks Giving.
Then Christmas. We will go to my moms.
But for us. It is not going to be the usual Christmas.
Hubby is on disability and I am a stay at home mom. We are not gonna have a lot for Christmas this year. But we will have a roof over our heads and clothes on our back and we will have each other. That is what matters. That is the Magic of Christmas. Just remembering what you do have in life and Family and Loved ones.
Just remember be kind to others because you really do not know what they are going through in life.

Much Love and Happy Holidays

Hugs to all...this christmas all I want is to be home and for my families health to be ok
I began decorations and got a lot done-tonight we will put up the tree and finish decorating as I can do this now. but yeah I so love Christmas it has always been big with family,that is what matters most to me. I can get on to post a bit more but will be limited after monday with surgery coming up so imma ask anyways no matter what religion you have/ belong to/ worship-please keep me and hubby in your prayers..and my Mom,she carries the world on her shoulders and I know how much love she has that she is also scared about all this hospital stuff so Jo's Mom could use them prayers too ..thank you so much!!!

I know babybird has a new baby girl and thought this craft is so darn cute...I think it would be good for any age child. a keepsake as well...easy enough to do...........

snowy - Apollo is adorable! Love the photo you shared and what a wonderful idea to do 25 days of photos!

Bonk - I am so glad you are going to be getting back to work at Disney! It is such a magical time there (well isn't it always :haha: )! I know you miss getting to celebrate with family though.

Jo - I'm not really the praying type, but I will definitely keep you and your family in my thoughts during this time. Wishing the best for you all :hug:
