Solstices and other Holidays

Yesterday was the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. What are these people doing? What are those stone structures for?

How do the people in your world mark the passing of seasons? Do you have any winter observances?

Emote This: Gratitude

It's been a while since I've visited Come In Character, and I sure have missed the camaraderie of the like-minded authors and characters that used to congregate here. Obviously, I hope you're all doing well, wherever you happen to be.

After all, life can be pretty unpredictable – and we've probably all experienced our fair share of ups and downs over the past six months.

In late October, for instance, my husband was hospitalized for internal bleeding, and the thought of losing him made me fret, cry, and feel extremely grateful for his presence in my life. The fact that he made it out of the hospital in relatively good condition – and was able to spend yet another Thanksgiving with me filled me with even more gratitude, which got me wondering...

Who – or what – are you most grateful for – and why?

All authors and characters are welcome to share their gratitude with us!
