Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
December is the season for traditions and gatherings of family and friends. Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, St. Lucia Day, St. Nicholas Day, Christmas and New Years. It is a busy and joyful time of the year.
Celebrations embrace rich traditions and rituals that connect our lives by associations with activities and memories. My dear blogger friend, Liz from the blog Leaping Life and I have once again bridged the 7,059 kilometers between Edinburgh and Vancouver to consider how we create new traditions over the years.
Put the kettle on and join in the conversation. We would love to hear your thoughts on TeaToastTrivia.com
I am your host Rebecca Budd and I’m looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
Thank you for joining Liz and me on Tea Toast & Trivia. And a very special thank you and shout out to Liz from the blog, Leaping Life!
The hashtag Liz mentioned for people feeling lonely on Christmas day is #JoinIn. Stop byTeaToastTrivia.com and read the screenshot from Sarah Millican’s twitter account. Sarah is a well-known comedienne in the UK– and according to Liz, some might say ‘national treasure’! #JoinIn is a marvellous project and so many people seem to benefit from it. Even now, this hashtag is trending on twitter.
In closing, I wanted to share the quote that Liz mentioned. It is by T.S. Eliot, “We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”
Connect with Liz on Leaping Life!
Pause, Breathe, Live!
Until next time, dear friends, safe travels.
