This week, as 2015 comes to an end, Mixology Monday is different. There are no recipes, no mixes not even a estimation. I am taking the opportunity to let each of you know how much we all appreciate your support of our small company. From the person whom has only purchased their first sample jar to those of you that are now addicted to our products, I thank you. I can assure you that our Retailers, Distributors, Production, and Administrative staff also appreciate you and send out their thanks to all of our customers.
Our customers are as diverse and different as the weather in the United States over the last week. The east coast was balmy while the west coast experienced cold and wet weather. The southeast was ravaged by destructive storms and the midwest doesn’t have its usual heavy winter blanket of snow. And then there is Texas, who tried to have it all!
Our customers and the CeCe family celebrated many different holidays this month, Christmas, Yule, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Kwanza were among the few. Some of the celebrations were religious and others secular. It seems, however, almost all people celebrate a winter holiday.
If you are a regular reader of Mixology Monday, you know that often I share with you tidbits of information that I have learned over the years or through research. I decided to make a list of all of the winter celebrations that I knew of and then do some research to see all of the ones I could come up with from a little bit of investigation.
First, make your list, either mental or written, of winter celebrations. Okay, How did you do? I had 12 on my list.
These are SOME of the ones I came up with after my tumble down the information tunnel. (These are listed in no particular order.)
Winter Solstice (secular)
Christmas Day (Christian)
Three Kings Day/Epiphany (Christian)
Pancha Ganapapati (Hindu)
Boxing Day (Australian, Canadian, English, Irish)
Kwanzaa (African American)
Eid al-Fitr (Muslim)
Chalika (Unitarian Univeralist)
Saint Nicholas Day (secular)
Bodhi Day (Buddhism)
Fiesta of Our Lady of Guadalupe (Mexican)
St. Lucia Day (Swedish)
Longest Night (secular)
Which ones have you celebrated or attended as a guest? Are there ones that you celebrate that I missed? I enjoyed reading about the different ones but at the same time I noticed a similarity between many of them.
The holidays, just like our Customers, Distributors, Retailers and Staff, all have our differences and similarities. Some of you found us because of our commitment to bringing you products that achieve optimal results whilst being the least offensive to both our bodies and our earth and others, just because we offer excellent products.
No matter how you’re a part of our CeCe Family, we appreciate each of you. Thank you for your business, your hard work and your dedication to our brand and products.
