Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
It’s December now, which means that I’ve officially switched my car radio station to the Christmas station. While I celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah, I love nothing more than the Christmas music that plays everywhere this time of year. I wish that there were more Hanukkah songs, besides the great “Dreidel, Dreidel” song, but until there are more, I’ll fulfill my need for holiday music with the Christmas station.
My mom has also put up some of our holiday decorations now. The menorah is on the mantel, and the Christmas garland is draped in front of it. A Hanukkah sign hangs on one door, and a Christmas sign hangs on the other. We count down the days until two of my favorite holidays (the other being Thanksgiving), and cherish my favorite time of the year. My sisters play with a dreidel, though they don’t quite understand the game yet, while they wait for the arrival of our Elf on a Shelf, who comes after we get our Christmas tree in a few weeks.
What do you celebrate in December? Have you started decorating for the holidays yet?
I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
