"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

What is your favourite holiday tradition?

No matter which country you are from, you are sure to have your own traditions, but which is your favourite one?

For me, I enjoy singing carols around the Christmas tree with my family.

What about you? If you could pick one tradition from one holiday as your favourite, what would it be?

    In Nepal there is a very nice festival in the autumn called Tihar. This is when brothers and sisters honour eachother with gifts and tikka on the forehead as a mark of respect.

    That sounds lovely. I think the relationship between brothers and sisters is so important, and is rarely honoured in the UK!
