DAILY HOLIDAY ICONS CHALLENGE

Journal Entry: Thu Dec 1, 2016, 3:14 AM
Christmas Tree (Small)Fox emoji - Christmas!Present Bullet 
Decided on a whim that I'll be doing a daily challenge this month
(probably cuz I saw the above fox cutie, tbh):

Make or edit at least 1 fandom-related winter holiday-themed pixel per day.

(All are usable via Add Media!)


LL: Christmas LaEXTRA CHALLENGE: LESSER-KNOWN HOLIDAYS Kwanzaa menorah 


  • I'd like to make icons for holidays I don't know much about (like Hanukkah)
  • SO, if you celebrate winter holidays besides Xmas or New Years and wanna represent, please comment some of your favorite things about them, what's important to you about these holidays, what represents them to you, OR something you'd like to see a character doing, ex. a Pokemon playing with a dreidel.
  • Give me ideas on how to represent you! c:

Hey, guys! I'm in a bind but currently unable to pursue a normal job. I'll be making pixel art, perler art, small plush toys, and jewelry to earn money for everyday expenses, medical expenses, and saving to move out by July 2017. As I make more types of stuff, I'll add them here as examples.Pixel: Yellow Star SLOTS Pixel: Yellow Star

Icons representing a mixed pagan christmas would be nice ~^.^~ My family has always celebrated a wierd mix of some very obscure traditions, so i've never seen it represented... but it would be nice.

I don't know what a "mixed pagan Christmas" would look like. I'm non-religious and my family is mostly Asian immigrants. ^^;

Can you describe it better? Such as your favorite things to do, foods you eat, decorations you use, special things you wear, other things like colors/feelings/ideas that represent these traditions to you, etc.? Like, for Hanukkah, there's blue and silver associated with it, and latkes, dreidels, menorahs, and the Star of David. Stuff like that.

Well for the most part it seems very much like christmas. :) 

We go to the german market, and normally end up buying loads of new decorations and crystals XD but it stays up all the time. Last year I got a dreamcatcher with  an amethyst, this year I got a set of quartz crystals. We also have candles. Lots and lots of them, I always like yo use one to meditate for a bit to welcome in the new year.

We dont really eat traditionally christmas foods though, it tends to be junk food, mostly vegetarian. My mom always likes to get us mini med spiced cheeses that are delicious :3 We always have yule log as well but I think most celebrations do XD Lots of fruit tea too.

On new years day we always used to go walking in the moors/woods, always around the same place. A few miles out there was a random bookshop my Dad used to like, I hated the snow and would be moaning about the cold, my parents would always just say "nature made it cold today so respect it." That used to be said about everything XD

Supposedly burning holly on yule burns away the previous years problems? We never really did that though, as we tended to use deadwood for our fire rather than cutting living plants.

Theres morris dancing as well, thats kinda seen all year round here though, but I think that might be in part to tourists XD

Theres another really crazy sword thing, but nobody does that, because it involves balancing swords in the stupidest ways possible so its dangerous... (that might JUST be my dad actually so i'm not sure how much of thats pagan XD)

Theres also a sword dance.

Our Yule is starting to sound wierder and wierder the more I think about it...

I know its a bit of aculture mashup XD 

Just curious, whats your holidays like? :)
