‘Tis the season to be jolly

‘Tis the season to be jolly!
Bhaubeej, Bodhi day, Chahar Shanbeh Suri, Chinese New Year, Christmas, Diwali, Eid ul-Adha, Groundhog day, Hannukkah, Hogmanay, Hogswatch night, Holiday, Imbolc, Inti Raymi, Karachun, Kwansolhaneidmas, Kwanzaa, Lupercalia, Matariki, Modranect, Navratri, Sadeh, Samhain, Saturnalia, Tu Bishvat, Winter Solstice, Yalda, Yule. Numerous religious and secular festivals are celebrated in the depths of winter. A reason for joy and happiness – but they don’t always go smoothly. What are your memories of a winter celebration? Eating turkey and Christmas pudding in the sweltering heat on Bondi Beach? Waking to a world transformed into a magical place by overnight snow? Comedy, disaster, community, nostalgia – this is the journal for stories, poems, pictures of your memory of a season of celebration.

Please date your entry, add your name and BM id and country, and relist within a fortnight. Please also be willing to send the journal wherever you are asked to, even if you normally only send within your own country, and get it back into circulation by posting promptly. When it is complete please let me know so I can mooch it back.
