my christmas tradition


Well, this is going to be a reeeeally long post… so, be prepared.
I’ve always loved Christmas: I love buying presents for my friends, love the shiny lights down the streets, the atmosphere, the ritual of decorating the Christmas tree and making the nativity scene (I used to  do that with my sister when we were living at my parent’s house), the fact that I can stay with all my family (and my doggy of course) and just enjoy the time together and have long conversation with my cousins or my grandma.

I’ve had a beautiful childhood and I decided to put some of my memories in this drawing.
It’s a little present for all of you, for your tireless support, for your kind words in chat or asks. I’m grateful for this full year, even if it has been a bit difficult and, sometimes, I was really scared.
I want to thank all the tumblr community and wish you all the happiness in the world.

If you are interested there’s an “explanation” of the drawing under the “read more” line, useful for those who aren’t Italian and want to know more about some of our Christmas food and traditions.

“My traditions for Christmas are… we usually open our presents Christmas Eve for the family, and we usually make like a big meal, like a big kind of roast dinner turkey situation, it’s unbelievable. And then I just like to see… my brother wraps presents in the weirdest ways with like duct tape and paper and whatever he can find, and so I like to see the bad wrapping that happens in my family. And that’s about it, we just like to be together.” (x)

Tbh Hussie is apparently not the head writer on Hiveswap… which combined with the fact that 0% of the final upd8s were drawn by him… leads me to believe Hussie has spent the last 2 years exclusively dealing in the underground rare horse blackmarket while simultaneously determining the best way to brag on Twitter about how much he helped Toby Fox with the infinitely more successful Undertale. How the man finds so much time in his days is incredible.
