Happy Birthday to all our Friends who were born in December and those who are Sagittarians!
What a joyous and festive time to have come into the world! Christmas trees, and Holiday decorations and twinkling lights are already everywhere you turn, and there’s such excitement in the air, no matter which hemisphere you’re living in! Half of us are looking forward to sleigh rides in the snow, ski trips and ice skating, while the other half are planning beach holidays and Christmas picnics in the backyard. Wherever you are, we know you’ll have fun celebrating your own special day!
Your December flowers are definitely themed for the Holidays: Paperwhites (or Narcissus) and the traditional Holly. Paperwhites symbolize hope and wealth, and send the meaning that you want your beloved to stay just the way they are. Holly symbolizes protection and defense (all those thorns!), but also a wish for domestic and family happiness.
For all those born in December under the sign of The Archer, Sagittarius, your main flower is the Carnation, especially pink ones! Actually, any pink flower will do, even Peonies. Sagittarians love being in love, and the Carnation signifies that emotion, as well as strength and beauty.
Sagittarians are one of the three Fire signs in the Zodiac, along with Aries and Leo, and you share their enthusiasm and passion for living. You are optimistic, energetic, progressive and adventurous. You have a great sense of humor, and life with you is never dull!
The birthstone for December is the lovely turquoise, one of the most beautiful shades of blue. In ancient times, turquoise was regarded as a love charm, and it is believed to relax the mind, as well as offering protection to the wearer. Turquoise rings in particular are thought to drive away evil spirits. This special stone is very often put to dramatic and exquisite use in jewelry created by Native American Indian artists.
Parties at Christmas are especially festive, so having a birthday party at this time of year just adds yet another fun-filled layer to the proceedings, especially when it comes to the musicians you’re going to invite who also share December birthdays: Taylor Swift, Micki Minaj, Britney Spears, the fabulous young new talent Billie Eilish, and Bette Midler, plus Jimmy Buffett and Annie Lennox, who were born on Christmas Day! Brad Pitt is going to love your party! And so will Jude Law, Jake Gyllenhaal, Denzel Washington, Christopher Plummer, Don Johnson, Steven Spielberg, Jane Fonda, Tiger Woods and LeBron James!
As for those who will be joining you in spirt, look for Humphrey Bogart, also born on Christmas Day, along with Frank Sinatra, Walt Disney, Emily Dickinson and Jane Austen, Ava Gardner, Beethoven, and just to add a splash of costume fun: Nero! Now that’s what we call a guest list! Just add some Christmas Punch and a bowl of spiked Egg Nog, and let the fun begin!
And whether you decide to go with traditional Christmas music, or songs about December, or a mix of both, here are some tunes you might want to include in your playlist!
So, Happy, Happy Birthday December and Sagittarius Babies! We’re wishing you a wonderful celebration, whichever day in December you call your own.
We’re also sending our very best, heartfelt wishes for Happy Holidays to each of you and your families. We hope this season brings you peace and love, as well as a sense of joy and fulfillment and shared giving. We’re so looking forward to seeing everyone in the New Year as we welcome 2021!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL…
Love Rose & Violet!
