Happy Thanksgiving! I'm still knee-deep in NaNoWriMo, despite the holiday, but I'm taking a break for the moment. Tonight is also evening #1 of Hanukkah, and I've made a very special tribute to that occasion this year that I plan to share with you, my dear readers.
I was out for breakfast last weekend with y husband and daughter, and as we waited for a table a very well-intended women asked Eliza, "Are you excited for Santa Claus?" This casual statement drew up a hold host of emotions in me, all of which I was fortunately able to suppress. First and foremost, I was reminded of all those times when I was asked the same question as a child. My family did not celebrate Christmas, but my husband was raised Catholic, and I've fully embraced the holiday as my own since meeting him. I was thankful my daughter was able to just nod at the nice lady, with no conflict of emotions rising up within her.
Anyway, I came home thinking of how traditions meld and change with time, and I was inspired to make these cards. I shouldn't have, but as soon as the idea dawned on me, I had to pursue it. Surely Jane Austen dreidel cards are no stranger than Jane Austen Halloween cards, right? Here they are:
I just made three sets, which one of three each design per set, and I'm giving away one to a lucky winner. Happy Hanukkah, Janeites! This giveaway is open internationally and will close on December 5th.
