Happy New Year ! Goodbye 2015

Ahhhh ! It's going to be 2016 already ! It seems like 2015 just started and now it's already ended . I'm super hyped for all the good things to come. Now , let's say goodbye to 2015 !







Dear 2015 ,


It was alright. I survived - I made new friends and lost others . I gained family and lost family . I became closer with some people than I ever thought I could, and became distant with others .You hurled large flying objects my way, but I dodged and ducked and made through. I got my first AG ( then three minis . I got two OGs and bucket loads of other toys. I made this blog . I expanded on my passions. I lived the Internet . 2015, I hated you. But I loved you all the same. So with ups and downs  and tricks and thins, 2015 came to an end .


Happy New Years ,
- Thalia

The Orgin of the Candy Cane | Holiday Histories







Hello Internet ^_^ !! Merry Christmas ! I wish I could have some pictures for you all, but I don't want to take any until  I get my camera . So yeah, late Christmas pictures it is. Anyway, I thought in the meantime I would write the first post of a series I wanted to do for a LONG while . The series is called "Holiday Histories". Its pretty self-explanatory. For holidays or special days, I will write posts concerning the history of that day ( including traditions, culture, etcetera). I hope you all enjoy it !

WARNING: This contains religious ( the Christian religion ) content. If you are not Christian or are offended by religious content, approach with caution ***
There are many different versions of this story, and this was one of the most accurate I found .
 
Hello Interent, it's Daily Doll reporter Kanani Akina here ! Today I will be telling you ALL about that sweet, white and red striped, peppermint flavored staff of deliciousness- Yep you guessed it, the Candy Cane.

      The candy cane started with an candymaker in Indiana who wanted to make something that could be a 'witness' to Jesus . He decided to make the candy cane. He wanted to incorporate symbols from Jesus' birth, death, and life .He started with a stick of hard white candy. The white symbolized the purity of the Virgin Mary and the sinlessness of Jesus. The hardness of the candy symbolized the Solid Rock,the foundation of the church, and the firmness of the promises of God. He then shaped it into a J shape to stand for Jesus' name . It could also be turned over to represent the staff of a shepard  in which Jesus is our " Good Shepard ".He thought the candy looked blank and plain, so he added some red lines to it. The thin lines represented the scrounging at the pillar Jesus received to save us from sin. The thick lines represented the blood Jesus shed on the cross to save us from sin and give us eternal life. With all these symbols blended together - Ta Da ! The candy cane was born.

I hope you love our first Holiday History ! Remember this meaning before you bite into or suck on this special holiday treat.

Tell us in the comment section below - Candy canes or Christmas cookies ?

Merry Christmas Eve ! | Christmas Q&A

Tis the season ! Merry Christmas Eve Internet ^_^ I wasn't in the Chrismas spirit as of lately and didn't decorate the house until today :P. Better Late then never ;) I did enjoy the Christmas spirit when I actually got in to it . I love decorating the house though, perhaps I am a crafty person :)

I decide to do a little Christmas Q&A for all you lovelies . This really helped me get into the Christmas jazz ;)

1 ) What do you want for Christmas ?

For my birthday AND Christmas, I only want one thing. What may this mysterious item be ?
A CAMERA !!!!
I'm set on the canon rebel t5i. My dad and I have been looking at prices and settled on that one . It should be here before the new year , so that's why you haven't seen many pictures . I'm really excited ! My little sis wants Lea Clark :)

2) Favorite Chrismas Tradition ?

Camping out waiting for Santa . This usually lasts 30-60 minutes before we cave in and collapse into our warm beds :)

3) Favorite Christmas Food ?

Star cookies , if they count . If not , Pepper Pot, which is a Carribean holiday dish.

4) Favorite thing about Christmas ?

Making gifts for other people. I love to get crafty :)

5) What does Christmas mean to you ?

Christmas means many different things, both on a religious and personal level. I am Christian, but I'm not the most religious person . I try to be the best Christain I can, but I'm still not very religious . To me , Christmas means the birth of our savior . It also reminds me of family, love, and the importance of giving on a personal level.

_________________________________________________________________________________

That's all for now Internet ! It was a few , but I hope I can squeeze in a few more tomorrow . Feel free to do this on your own social media, answer them, and add more questions . Merry Christmas Eve Internet !

Merry Chrismas Eve,

 ~ Christmas-y Thalia
