⚜Foreman Trea’s Celebrating Cotton Candy, Pearl Harbor Day, and Yule

descriptiondescriptiondescription

For people of nearly any religious background, the time of the winter solstice is a time when we gather with family and loved ones. Most folks know about Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa. For Pagans and Wiccans, such as my husband, it's often celebrated as Yule, but there are literally dozens of ways you can enjoy the season. However, December also celebrates a favorite treat from childhood as well as reminds the citizens of the United States of the tragedy that heralded our entrance into World War II.

Duration:
December 1st to December 31st, 2015

How To’s:
Read one book per task, do a spell out for any of the words listed below, or Mix and Match from both options
You can choose to find the word or words of each task in the title or text of the book or follow the specified criteria for the task
Re-reads are allowed and there are no page minimums unless noted!

Spell Out Option:
Cotton Candy, Pearl Harbor, Yule, December, Holidays, Childhood, Treat, Tragedy, Remember, Cycle of Life

Tasks:
National Cotton Candy Day is December 7th. Cotton candy is known by several names: Cotton Candy in the U.S., India, Canada, candy floss in the UK, Pakistan, Ireland, New Zealand, India, South Africa, Canada, tooth floss in South Africa, and Fairy Floss in Australia.: Read a sweet book, a book about fairies, a book set in one of the above named countries, or one with the words Cotton, Candy, Fairy, floss, or Sweet in the title.
Machine-spun cotton candy was invented in 1897 by the dentist William Morrison and confectioner John C. Wharton and first introduced to a wide audience at the 1904 World's Fair: Read a book set at the turn of a century or set at a World’s Fair.
December 7th is known as Pearl Harbor Day in the US. It marks the day when Japan attacked the shipyard at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and forced the United States into World War II.: Read a book set in Japan, Hawaii, or during World War II.
December 7th is also National Civil Aviation Day: Read a book where one of the MCs is a pilot or where one of the MCs takes a plane ride (can have just returned from a plane ride).
Yule is celebrated on December 21st: Read a book set anytime in December, a book that is the 1st, 2nd, or 21st in a series, or has the words December or twenty-one (in words or numbers) in the title.
As a festival of the Sun, the most important part of any Yule celebration is light -- candles, bonfires, and more: Read a book with the sun, a candle, or a fire on the cover.
Yule can symbolize the Death and Rebirth portion of the Cycle of Life: Birth, Death, and Rebirth: Read a book where someone dies, the word death is in the title, or where someone is pregnant or gives birth.
