I love Non-Sectarian Festival Holiday aka Christmas, because mince pies, mulled wine, and my favourite British tradition, getting drunk at lunchtime with my work colleagues whilst wearing a stupid hat. New Year is fun too. But...why are these things all in a row? After that there is nothing in the Western calendar other than Valentine's Day, which can frankly go jump in a lake with boulders tied to its feet, until Easter. And there's still a lot of winter to get through.
I think we need to invent or adopt some more food-based festivals in January, February and March.
This post prompted by the amazing awesomeness sparked by the collision of Halloween and Diwali. (Photo not by me.)
ETA: Three favourite pumpkin-based videos.
