Holiday Traditions Contest - Update!

Sat Nov 2, 2013, 11:29 AM by RiseandBe
Welcome to PoeticalCondition's Journal!


:new: UPDATED prize list!!! Scroll down to prize section, all additions will have a ":new:" sticker in front of them. :new:

Well, the Holiday Season is upon us! And isn't it a glorious thing? A stressful, hectic ball of chaos, maybe, but glorious nonetheless. =P

People love to take the holidays and make a mess of them, but I prefer to focus on the love, warmth and cheer we are blessed enough to share with our loved ones and those around us.
At the center of that celebration are our traditions. Personal or Family traditions are the epoch of Holiday cheer, the crescendo of joy and love, the most treasured memories this season has to offer. This year, let's all focus on the good times, shall we?

Let us write a toast to the most beautiful and precious times we can think of, and let us cherish those moments all year long.

I just need to say, I think it's a fantastic thing to focus on the up-side of the holidays, and it was a pleasure to work on my piece for this contest.  Now I have something I can go back to when things get all hectic and crazy and say, "Wow, look at what a wonderful tradition I've created for my family."  <3

Go ahead and add a feature from me to the prizes for each place~! I'd like to point out the the dev and icon tag rule is a little bit outdated as the @ symbol can also be used now... Or maybe that was on purpose. :paranoid:
