Seasons & Celebrations

Autumn British BlogSo, we're approaching the end of October!  It may sound like a cliché, but time really does fly by.  It's because of this I've grown to appreciate the 'special' days of the year and what they stand for.  Easter, Halloween, Christmas - the list goes on and on.  When everything else in your life is changing on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, these days of celebration are waiting patiently in the same place on the calendar as they were the previous year and every year before that.  They each change the pattern of whatever routine is in place at any given time and offer a reason to celebrate - sounds good to me!

Walking Through Woods AutumnAdmittedly, it can seem a bit bizarre at times when you stop to think about what you're actually celebrating.  I mean, Guy Fawkes Night on the 5th November is to commemorate the failure of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605 by a gang of Roman Catholic activists against the Houses of Parliament - so, let's set off colourful fireworks whilst eating outdoors?  Sure.. why not?!  But joking aside, the concept of having something to celebrate holds much more weight than I think many realise.  Not only do these 'special' days provide a much needed change of pace, they also bring people together. Take Halloween for example; the shops are packed full with themed party items, little ones are preparing to go trick-or-treating and personally, I'm getting together with relatives to eat a ridiculous amount of themed food!  It's refreshingly different - when else can I pretend chicken goujons are fingers, diet coke is stale blood and green jelly is slime?!

Autumn British Blogger SunshineAs you can imagine, you're very unlikely to catch me complaining about any of the year's celebrations.  I can't say I mind about the 'full blaze of Halloween commercialism', yes I do want a birthday cake and all the fuss to go with the day and I don't at all want Christmas to hurry up and be over!  I find myself feeling the same way when it comes to seasons - I love the constant change.  As soon as one season begins to feel familiar, it's replaced by a new one that never fails to arrive at just the right time; forcing wardrobes, activities and even the weather to change with it.  Perhaps I'm simply taking more time to notice what is around me, but the colours of the British Autumn this year truly have impressed.  My mind has been bouncing over to the summer season after having been kindly sent a Triangl bikini, however for the most part, I'm excited to be tangled in this season's golden leaves.

Something I've learnt through blogging is that there are far more people around the globe who are interested in acknowledging the 'special' days than I had realised.  Up until recently, I thought I was the only one who crept Christmas songs into their playlist mid-October - how wrong I was!  I'm beyond thrilled to see so many celebrations appearing on the calendar as the end of the year nears and I genuinely hope you are too - be it for the change of pace, gathering of friends/family or simply the cause for celebration.  Well on that note, no matter how you may be celebrating the occasion... Happy Halloween!

  1. I agree that having so many things to celebrate at the end of the year is a nice way to bring people together. I always seem to forget that other countries don't celebrate Thanksgiving (it makes sense why, obviously). I didn't know about Guy Fawkes Night, so that was a new interesting fact! Lovely photos as always! The last one is an especially nice shot of you :). Have a great weekend!

  7. Malaysia has LOTS of celebrations and public holidays because we're multi racial. It's not as much here, sure there's Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas but I do miss Chinese New Year and Hari Raya celebration. As a child I hated celebrations because it means I was forced to dress nicely and meet all the relatives that I don't know but now that I am older, i look forward to it! Ohhh, how time has changed!

I also love the celebration days throughout the year, like you said; they give us a chance to get together and have a good time! I totally miss bonfire night- we used to have big field parties at home and they don't celebrate it in Aus. Plus: fireworks are illegal here. :/ On a brighter note, you look super stunning as always- loving that skirt on you!

  49. I think every holiday is something we should take advantage of:). I don't celebrate Halloween simply because we already have so many traditions that are connected with the celebration of Day of the Dead and All Saints Day that I simply don't how could I ever have the energy to celebrate Halloween because it comes before these important days. There is just so much work to do, decorate and clean the graves, go to the cemetry, buy flowers, visit relatives, attend mass at the graveyard...every year I'm so exausted after these two days!

    Anyhow, you look divine! This location is wonderful. That maxi skirt fits you perfectly.....and I just love this neutral combo...it makes you amazing long blond hair stand out even more.

  69. Gabrielle, these photos of you are absolutely exquisite! I love the location! I couldn't agree more. I love when the holidays roll around :) I get to see not only how other cultures enjoy it, but I can share things that go on in my area. It's beautiful to see.

  78. Theses pictures are sooo pretty, and I love your look (this skirt!!)
    I'm pretty impatient that Christmas is over, because it will means that I'm soon moving back to France, and I can't wait anymore..
    But, Christmas is still pretty cool :P
