December by escume December by escume
Happy holidays to all you lovely people <3 December is absolutely my favorite month, so I’m excited to post this month’s installment! I love this time of year, the festivities, traditions, mood, music, and ohmygoshthefood. I've already gorged myself with pies, more to come, no regrets.

Anyway, December is the last month of the Gregorian calendar. Its name is derived from the Latin word meaning tenth, which was its original place in the calendar. The Anglo-Saxons called it ‘Yule monath’ because of the customary burning of the Yule log, as well as ‘Heiligh monath’ or holy month because of
Christmas celebrations. Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, New Years Eve, St. Nicholas Day, Winter Solstice, etc. are all celebrated in December’s jam-packed, awesome holiday schedule.

This month’s birthstone, the turquoise, is seen as a symbol of wealth, healing, and protection and is thought to bring good fortune and peace to the home. December’s flower is the narcissus and symbolizes self-love and vanity (due to Greek mythology) though also rebirth and new beginnings.

A few monthly observances include World AIDS Day on the 1st, International hug day on the the 4th, Monkey Day on the 14th, National Read a New Book Month, Universal Human Rights Month, and National Chocolate Day on the 27th (don’t mind celebrating that all month-round). December traits include ambitious, funny, hasty, social, loyal, prideful, and active. Have a great December :snowflake:

It is hard to pick a favorite in most things I enjoy... your art included! However of all the months, I believe I can say there is something about this one (December) that makes me wish to have it displayed proudly in my home. GORGEOUS

I do think love would be a better word.. Grandma always said, "You can't love it, if it doesn't have a heart." Well it takes heart to make such beautiful pieces and to have such a talent deserves praise. :) I can't wait to adorn my wall with new art!!! I know of at least 2 maybe 3 days left in the year that warrant gift giving...
