H Is For Holidays

Which holiday is your favorite?
We have many holidays in Canada, that not everyone shares. And there are some holidays in other countries that I heard of, but have not had the chance to see.
Easter is this month. Which is a holiday for Christ, but also a time when Lilies are around.

I love Christmas for the same reason. Christ, that is. Plus you get so much wonderful family time that is hard to pass up! Decorating with them is a tradition that I love.

I love Thanksgiving, where I usually have turkey dinner twice.

The benefits of having two families!
They are always what I am thankful for.
Plus I have a love and fascination for Halloween.

To see the kids all dressed up, having the time of their lives. All the pumpkins carved with wonderful faces. Just a wonderful night for all.
But most of all, and call me egotistical, that's okay, I love my birthday!

I personally think it should be an international holiday, but haven't got the world on my side quite yet.
I am a December baby. Yes I'm Suchacrabbyass, (Sagittarian). In case you are wondering.
So there ya have my faves. Though I left a few out, if I named them all I'd look mildly crazy. Better if I keep my feet planted on the ground, and my head out of the clouds!

  1. Christmas is my favorite holiday. :D Thanksgiving is probably my next favorite.

  2. Well I was going to say Christmas but then I read your list and Halloween is another favorite of mine. Oh, now I can't decide! :)

  3. Hi Freda! I love all Holidays and if you've visited my blog enough, you know I adore decorating for ALL of them. Have a wonderful weekend, Nan

  4. Christmas means winter so I prefer Easter ! at least the nature is blooming !

  5. Hi Freda,
    My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. I love turkey and all the side dishes. But I also like birthdays. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  6. Christmas is my favorite and the only one I decorate the whole house for.

  7. I enjoy all the ones you named except perhaps Halloween.
    We always have a great cook out with the family on July 4th, Independence Day for us in the USofA.

  8. I love holidays in general. Birthdays are great because they mean cake!

  9. My favourite holiday is Christmas.

    See my homepage on my blog ( to see my Christmas Counter; located on the right side.

  10. Gotta agree about Easter and Christmas for the reasons you say, but one of my favorite holidays of all time is Thanksgiving--good food and fun family time with lots of relaxation. When I was a kid I loved Halloween too. My candy would usually run out during Thanksgiving weekend.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.

So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
