Why share your favorite winter tradition or activity memory? 

What are your favorite winter tradition memories? The holiday season is a time for family, friends, and the joy of giving. But it's also a time to reflect on what we're thankful for in our lives. Sharing these traditions allows us to connect with others who have similar experiences and provide an insight into our life story.

If you don't feel like this prompt applies to your family or yourself, think about a tradition or activity that is meaningful in your life at that time of the year.

Writing Prompts

Winter, that time of year when we find ourselves reflecting on our favorite memories and often on what is coming next in our lives. What makes this season so significant? Is it because it's cold outside, and we're all bundled up in sweaters and fuzzy socks? Or is it because family is always together and shared valuable time? Whatever your reason may be, winter can provide an excellent opportunity to share your favorite memory with others. 

If you want to start telling your story or the story of a loved one here we have some prompts that can help you:
