Do you have any personal traditions or rituals around Xmas?
In our household some family traditions have been:
- creating a ‘tree’ in a glass jar from discarded trimmings at the tree sales lot.
- making a vegan version of egg nog and enjoying it liberally through the first of January.
- holding up in our apartment with movies to watch non-stop through the holidays and not going outside.
Does the imminence of the new year affect your mood?
Not really. I’m just happy for a nice long 2 week holiday to decompress at the end of the year, do what I want and then actually be ready for the first day of work during the first week of January.
I’ve decided to do less documentary photography and more of my favourite – abstract images.
