Hi all! In the past few years, I have been getting more into doing seasonal/holiday stuff, especially around Christmas. However, despite having an acute sense of different moods going with different seasons, due to a number of issues I struggle with, I am not always ready and and in the right mood when the rest of the world is. Therefore, having people I can discuss holidays with even "off schedule" is something I've been very much looking for. I'm a member of the Christmas sub on Reddit, but I have run into technical problems with the site when posting (that for some reason are specific to r/Christmas, I have had no difficulty with any other pages on Reddit), that make it difficult to engage with others there.

I'm living in the San Francisco Bay Area in California--where the changing climate has thrown its own monkey wrench into the holiday rhythm as well. Sometimes Halloween still feels like the end of summer, and by the time it actually feels like Halloween the calendar says it's time for Thanksgiving... Anyway, hope to meet some others here.

Welcome to MHH! Make yourself at home! Check out all the boards and dive right on in. :) If you have any questions, please let us know.

We lived in Hawaii for 4 years so I know exactly what you mean about the climate not matching up with the holidays/seasons. We are now in Missouri and that's where we plan to stay. We are a retired military family, so it's good to be "home".

Welcome! Fellow West Coaster here, just across the Sound from Seattle and I lived in the Sacramento Valley for many years. We discuss holidays especially Christmas year round and have a Rudolph Day celebration where we do something Christmas-y on the 25th of every month.

Welcome, WonderSeeker! I live in north Louisiana, close to the Mississippi River. - about 35 miles if I go southeast; about 60 miles if I go northeast. I understand the confusion of the seasons due to weather. I believe we've run our air conditioner on more Christmases than our heat. Just two nights ago, we had to turn on our air conditioner - at nearly the end of January!

Hope we can help you feel Christmas year round!
