My family doesn’t really have a lot of traditions, apart from your usual Christmas shenanigans…
But there’s ONE summer tradition that I hold dear in my bookish heart. Every summer my mum and I watch the whole Harry Potter series together 😀 We don’t do marathons because… you know, we have stuff to do (ie. mum wouldn’t last long in a marathon).
Every year we sit down to watch one film per week, with a bowl of popcorn and tons of drinks, while mum makes the same hilarious comments she made the year before ♥
I love our Harry Potter tradition!
We haven’t started our “summer tradition” this year yet because we’ve been kind of busy lately, but we promised ourselves that we’d start in a couple of weeks, so it’s all good 😀
I think watching the films will be extra special this time, because I got to meet “Mrs Weasley” and “Hagrid” on a TV production I worked on earlier this year.
I didn’t really get a chance to talk to Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), but Julie Walters (Mrs Weasley) was such a friendly and elegant lady that every time she came on to the set there were smiles all around. We even got talking about how my fake office set looked like a real office, with proper office paperwork lying around and everything! The props department really did a good job on that one.
Anyway… I’m going off topic here, aren’t I? Haha! Yeah, I tend to do that sometimes.
Right, back to my Harry Potter tradition…
I might start a new Autumn tradition though. You know, for after we finish watching the films. I’m thinking of re-reading the books, because I’ve only read them once and that was a loooong time ago! But I’m not sure I’d want to read them every year (We wouldn’t want to spoil the magic now, would we?).
What about *you*? Do you have any bookish traditions?
