EBSQ Spotlight on Seasonal Art: ‘Tis The Season – Juli Ryan

This month’s featured gallery is Seasonal Art: ‘Tis The Season.  The month of December brings us Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Year’s Eve. It is a month of festivities and reflection. Seasonal Art: ‘Tis The Season appears once a year in month of December and is always a favorite. From now until the end of the year, we are going to take a few moments to catch up with some of the EBSQ artists that create for this season of celebration.

Twelve Days Of Christmas - Juli Ryan

Winter is by far my favorite season because of the holidays.  Holidays have always been a very important part of my life.  I grew up in a troubled family, but somehow Christmases were always perfect!  We lived in the country and we would walk in the snow from house to house caroling.  Our neighbors would then supply us with plenty of Christmas sweets and hot chocolate.  Pure joy!  Our house was always brightly decorated, we would eat wonderful meals together and of course there was Santa!  I would many times be the first child up (I am one of eight) and wait by the tree searching through the presents!

To this day Christmas is a big deal in our house.  I try to pass on this love of the season to my kids.  We bake cookies, make gifts together, and decorate our home. The spirit of giving and love is in the air!  The only thing that is missing is the caroling…I’m still working on that! – Juli Ryan
