On the Eighth Day of Christmas

Thank you again for joining us today for the eighth day of Christmas, when we meet two more team members, motivatedmotion and PenelopeKuhn.

Lynn of Newmarket, Ontario is behind motivatedmotion. Look in her shop to find unique jewellery and felted pieces.

Here, Lynn shares her holiday traditions:

The celebrations start on December 21st and continue until January 6th.
We encompass the Celtic traditions and begin celebrations on the Winter Solstice. The we celebrate traditional Christmas, and we end by celebrating the Orthodox Christian celebrations continued by the Newfoundlanders as the 12 days of Christmas, taking us to old Christmas Day. During the 12 days of Christmas we may get visits by Mummers. Mummers are folks who visit and entertain with song and dance from house to house in payment of drinks and food.

Now, we meet Penelope of PenelopeKuhn. Penelope hails from Dartmouth, NS and offers custom portraits.

Penelope shares her family traditions with us as well:

For our family Christmas eve was always a big event. We would get dressed up, have fancy hors d'oeuvres and some type of fondu (one time the peanut oil from a meat fondue caught fire and our large globe paper chandelier went up in smoke - that was memorable)! After dinner we'd sing carols. I'm keeping these traditions going with my family, minus the peanut oil fires!

What fun traditions, ladies. Thank you for sharing.

Remember that purchases from either of these shops can help you win a fantastic prize.
