PROMPT #202 – PREPARATION TO CELEBRATION
The last two months of the year seem ripe for celebration. And of course, you cannot have a great celebration without good preparation. So, what are some of the thing we will be celebrating?
Nov. 1 – All Saint’s Day
Nov. 2 – All Soul’s Day
Nov. 11 – Veterans Day, Remembrance Day, Armistice Day
Nov. 17 – Homemade Bread Day
Nov. 24 – Thanksgiving Day
Nov. 30 – Stay at Home Because You Are Well Day
Dec. 6 – St. Nicholas Day
Dec. 12 – Day of the Virgin Guadalupe

Dec. 23 – Festivus
Dec. 25 – Christmas Day
Dec. 25 – Hanukkah
Dec. 31 New Year’s Eve
Dec. 31 – Make Up Your Mind Day

Obviously some are legitimate days of cultural and traditional celebration. And some are just plain silly!
What we need from you is to not write about the day so much, but about any preparation needed to pull them off! Have fun and enjoy your “day”!
FOR ONE MOMENT MORE
I miss you.
You always made special days,
days of love and nurturing.
And this future without you
keeps me wishing I had
just one moment more.
A moment to thank you for those times
and tell you did fine teaching
that nurturing and love
was harder than you made it look.
I miss you. I wish you were here.
