At our house we have entered Hallowbirthdaymas season. This is a season that runs from October 1st to January 1st. We have all the normal holidays plus a slew of birthdays. Here's what we have going on every year:

Oct 8th - my mom's birthday
Oct 12th - my brother's birthday
Oct 31st - Halloween! (best day of the year!)
Nov 6th - Stella's birthday
Nov 13th - my birthday
Nov 18th - BIL's birthday
Late Nov - Thanksgiving
Dec 5th - Sandis' birthday
Dec 12th - SIL's birthday
Dec 21st - Winter Solstice
Dec 24th - Christmas eve
Dec 25th - Christmas (we celebrate the Solstice, family, and giving to those we love and to those less fortunate than ourselves.)
Dec 26th - my brother's, niece's and nephew's birthdays
Dec 29th - my dad's birthday
Dec 31st - New Year's Eve
Jan 1st - Rose Bowl Parade, I mean, New Year's Day

And somewhere in there, we find the time to honor Hanukkah, Ramadan, Bodhi Day and Kwanzaa. Surprisingly, we are quite busy this time of year. If you don't hear from me, you now know why.
