Our family liked to adopt holidays and traditions from places we’ve lived. Last year, even though we didn’t live there, we adopted Iceland’s Jolabokaflod. That translates to the Christmas book flood. Link to historyMy question is two parts:1. Are there any traditions or holidays that you have adopted from Scotland or elsewhere?2. Do you think the Jolabokaflod is a holiday your family would be interested in adopting?Misc. - ~Upcoming Podcast Schedule:Episode 376 releases on Friday, 27-DecemberEpisode 377 releases on Thursday, 2-JanuaryEpisodes during Dami’s Winter University Quarter will release on Fridays~31 Days of Christmas & Random Acts of KindnessRandom Acts of Kindness Started on Sunday, 1-December-2019 & runs for the entire month on C.C.'s Instagram account ~ cc_almonWeek 3 Sale Runs from Sunday, 15-December-2019 & Ends on Saturday, 21-December-2019Week 4 Sale Runs from Sunday, 22-December-2019, to Saturday, 28-December-2019~C.C.'s Vlogmas for the month of December is on our YouTube channel~Support the Podcast, Become A Patron~Want another way to help support our podcast?
