How I Decorate My Christmas Tree

by evilnymphstuff

Today, I’d like to share something special to you. I’m sorry if I’m missing the Weekly Photo Challenges – they’ll come a little late.

It’s Christmas time and every in the world, people are gathering within their family, among their friends, buying gifts, giving and receiving them, preparing Christmas dinner, and most of all, putting up the Christmas tree.

The Chinese Moon Festival (O)

by evilnymphstuff

October has begun… already! For me it is the time of final big exams and piled up work… but fortunately we’ve ended September in a cheerer note with the Chinese Moon Festival, which my family and I celebrated on Sunday 30th September :)

To start, we go to our grandma’s place and we have dinner together… well like any day. It gets interesting only when the clock strikes 7.00 p.m (GMT+4h). Because when the clocks strikes 7, we pay attention to the sky, looking out for the full moon. We patiently wait for it to come up in its full glowing glory, after it no longer hides behind the clouds.

Can you see the little moon in the photograph?

Spring in; It’s Brigid’s Day today!

by evilnymphstuff

Hey guys, I wanted to post earlier but I was bothered by the exams results and school and all…

Anyway today is my favourite Wiccan festival – excluding Samhain and Beltane which are the two main sabbats of Wicca – which represents the beginning of spring: Imbolc or (what I like to call it best…) Brigid’s day.

After the coldness of winter, spring at last begins to show its colourful flowers and green leaves… The sleep is over and a new season of growth and beauty has sprung up.

This is a fun craft to do on this special day which is Brigid’s cross. I did one last year with multicolour straws and I kept it for this year:
