After you marvel at today’s date—12-12-12, the last time we’ll have a repeating date like this until January 1, 2101—let’s turn our writing attention to the holidays. We’re in the middle of Hanukkah right now, and Christmas is only thirteen days away, so what are you doing to prepare for the festivities? Do you have traditions you follow this time of year? Are these traditions you’ve carried forward from when you were a child or new customs created with your spouse, children and grandchildren? What makes this time of year special for you? Write about the holidays and how you get in the spirit. Set the timer for ten minutes. Go.
