Winter Traditions
Name: Lyssa
Location: near Houston, TX
Occupation: Special Education Preschool Teacher
Favorite Holiday Movie: Nightmare Before Christmas or A Muppet Christmas Carol, but I also have a really soft spot for Heat Miser and Snow Miser and the Year Without Santa Clause.
Favorite Holiday Song: The Heat Miser/Snow Miser song [from the original and the remake], What's This from NMBC, and Do You Hear What I hear, oh and most albums by Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Favorite Holiday Traditions: Hubby and I always go to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert when they come to Houston, and we always drive down to Galveston to see the Festival of Lights [where I drive him CRAZY by taking hundreds of pictures] and Ice Land [where I enjoy the 9 degree temperature] And every year Justin and I make a list of holiday movies and we watch one a night from Thanksgiving till Christmas Eve
Favorite Winter Activity If we're just talking about winter, I love skiing and am miserable I can not do it in Houston, I miss snow [I'm originally from NJ], if we mean holiday activities, I love driving around and looking at Christmas lights and listening to Christmas Carols while drinking some sort of hot beverage
Favorite Winter Drink Peppermint hot chocolate with marshmallows and whipped cream.
Favorite Holiday Meal Ham. Christmas is really the only time I get to eat ham and hubby's mom makes the best ham.
Favorite Holiday Junk Food I love all the Hershey Kiss holiday flavors like candy cane, mint truffle, cherry cordial, and the ones you can only get around Christmas time.
Holiday Decorating: Before or After Thanksgiving I would totally do it before, like as soon as Halloween ended, if Hubby would let me

A Few Favorites
Favorite Movies: Nightmare Before Christmas, Alice in Wonderland [animated and Johnny Depp], the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Harry Potter movies, and most of the Marvel movies
Favorite Hobbies: traveling, running, photography, cats [I have 5 of them], going to concerts, baking, Fire Emblem Awakening
Favorite TV Shows: Doctor Who, This is Us, Gilmore Girls, Glee, Girl Meets World
Favorite Books: I read a lot, I read at inhuman speeds, if you want to see what I like, check out my goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/1614554-lyssa
Favorite Fandoms: I'm not really too big into fandoms, I used to be really obsessed with Harry Potter and ASOIAF fandoms, but now I don't have enough free time for fandoms
Favorite Pairings: Legolas/Gimli, Snape/Hermione [when she's 18], 9/Jack Harkness, 10/Master, Bleys/Corwin, Molly Carpenter/Harry Dresden

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: Literally my life. This isn't a fandom journal at all. I write about school and my day to day adventures with my kiddos, my cats, Hubby and my adventures, Traveling, my [mostly nonexistent] social life, and I post a lot of photos
How often do you update?: Once a week usually, more if I'm not at school, less if I'm away for an extended period of time [for example, I'm going to the Baltic for a month come July 4th]
What do you look for in an LJ friend?: I don't want to just be a number on a friends list, I want people who actually read my entries and seem interested in my life, and I want to read about people's life stories
How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: I'm pretty good at commenting, and I'm not a comment Nazi, but a few to let me know you actually read an entry every so often is nice
Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: I'm not really into fandom only or fanfiction journals, if you write that stuff but also have real-life entries, I'm good with that, but I don't want 100% fanfiction and fandom related entries.

Favorite Winter Drink: I drink tea all year, but it's especially wonderful in the winter.

Favorite Holiday Junk Food: I'm going to be that person and say I don't eat holiday junk food. Sorry. I've been eating a very low carb diet for the past year and feel awesome (now only if I'd lose more weight), so carbs are reserved for things like beer. I'll probably have a Christmas beer.

What do you look for in an LJ friend?: The usual about drama free, nice, like-minded people.
How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: I can suck at commenting sometimes, but try to comment as I can/have something to say/am awake enough to be semi-coherent. I'm not a comment counter, but it'd be nice if we connected at some point.
Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: 100% fandom journals (some fandom is fine if there's also real life), racism and related bad-people things.

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: the things listed under hobbies.
How often do you update?: Daily
What do you look for in an LJ friend?: Someone with a few things in common, who will comment when they have something to say, and have a conversation so I'm not just replying to comments to never hear back again, also it bugs me when people have to comment on every single post and don't say anything important. I'd much rather someone just comment occasionally and have conversations with them.

Winter Traditions
Name: Manuela
Location: Germany
Occupation: part time HR, part time animal shelter
Favorite Holiday Movie: The Harry Potter movies, as they used to come out in December
Favorite Holiday Song: so many of the traditional ones!
Favorite Holiday Traditions: I like to pick presents for people and send holiday cards
Favorite Winter Activity going for walks in the dark and looking at the decorated/lit up houses
Favorite Winter Drink warm pear juice
Favorite Holiday Meal baked apple
Favorite Holiday Junk Food I didn't know there is such a thing. Point me to where I can get it?
Holiday Decorating: Before or After Thanksgiving We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here, but I'd say afterwards.

A Few Favorites
Favorite Movies: either epic stuff like The Hobbit and such or easy entertainment like Pixar movies
Favorite Hobbies: penpalling
Favorite TV Shows: none. I don't watch any shows.
Favorite Books: I've only read non-fiction this years, it's my new infatuation
Favorite Fandoms: none, but I guess HP out of nostalgic reasons
Favorite Pairings: I used to read a lot of slash fanfiction, so something along those lines

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: My life, which seems to include a lot of talk about pets and animals, as they're a major part of my life
How often do you update?: about twice a week
What do you look for in an LJ friend?: someone who write fairly regularly about their life and thoughts
How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: The comment feature is the best about LJ in my opinion. Comment whenever you feel like it, but at least let me know once in a while you're still reading. I do the same.
Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: When you only write about fandoms or in such an erratic, impersonal way that I still don't feel like I know you even though I've had you on my f-list for a while..that's a turn-off.
And if our attitudes about life and respect clash too much, that's probably a deal-breaker.

This sounds nice! I'd love some new friends.

Winter Traditions
Name: zimena - I mostly post at Dreamwidth nowadays, though. LJ is/was largely friends only, DW is open except for a few very personal posts.
Location: Norway.
Occupation: Sometimes a translator and text-formatter, mostly just trying to get through life day by day.
Favorite Holiday Movie: Not much of a movies person, honestly.
Favorite Holiday Song: "Lasty Christmas" by Wham.
Favorite Holiday Traditions: Decorating, exchanging holiday cards, being with people I love, enjoying calm mood and holiday spirit.
Favorite Winter Activity Watching winter sports, drinking hot chocolate with whipped cream, doing nice things indoors while it's too cold or snowy to be out.
Favorite Winter Drink Hot chocolate with whipped cream.
Favorite Holiday Meal Probably turkey - we usually only have it at this time of the year.
Favorite Holiday Junk Food Can't think of anything specific, but anything that comes in special holiday flavours is by default interesting.
Holiday Decorating: Before or After Thanksgiving For advent, or just before that. I've been spending the last couple of days decorating now.

A Few Favorites
Favorite Movies: Willow and Rocky IV. I probably saw less than 50 movies in my whole life, though.
Favorite Hobbies: Spending time online, playing retro-style games, playing Aardwolf MUD, reading, writing (DW, sports slash fiction, sometimes poetry, random other things that fall into my mind), learning foreign languages (Spanish, Czech. Italian on the want-to-get-started list), watching sports...
Favorite TV Shows: Hmm, don't know if I have one. I liked the first season of BBC's Sherlock, though.
Favorite Books: Harry Potter used to be major favourite. I'm less into the books now, but they used to be a huge part of my life. Other than that, I generally like fantasy books.
Favorite Fandoms: Hmm... I'm not sure sports (cross-country skiing, football, biathlon etc) counts as a fandom? I write sports fic, though - nowadays I only think of ski sports, but I used to also write football slash for about 10 years, not so much anymore.
Favorite Pairings: Right now: Cross-country skiing ones. Ask me if you want to know the details.

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: My life and right now also a lot of fangirling a certain Johannes Høsflot Klæbo. Other than that, I also talk about other stuff I like - music, online stuff, games, languages, travelling...
How often do you update?: Sometimes I do it a few times a week, sometimes only once or twice in two weeks. I always read, though, and I care even if I'm sometimes quiet.
What do you look for in an LJ friend?: Friendship, communication, having some things in common.
How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: If you have anything to say to me, I'm always happy to hear from you, but I don't "expect" anyone to comment so-or-so much. I also try to comment if I have something to say. I don't comment with just "I agree" or a smiley or some such - content is key, but content does not have to be half a page of text. Just a few words can also be enough!
Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: I'm on LJ/DW to have fun, so I don't want to hear too much about politics etc. Of course it's okay to post opinions, but not 100% news-related topics. Also, don't be hateful or mean.

Want to be friends? My survey is in a comment below this. :)

I visited Seoul ten years ago and love to keep ties to people there. Plus who doesn't like a tragicomic life?

Winter Traditions
Name: Bec
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Occupation: Payroll Manager
Favorite Holiday Movie: I guess it would be Love Actually
Favorite Holiday Song: O Holy Night but it can't be too flouncy.
Favorite Holiday Traditions: The fact I get two weeks off work?
Favorite Winter Activity Christmas is summertime for me...going to the beach like Christmas 2015, having water balloon fights like I did last Christmas...
Favorite Winter Drink Don't have one.
Favorite Holiday Meal Last year we had a delicious ham and a lamb roast cooked in the camp oven. Yum.
Favorite Holiday Junk Food How is holiday junk food different to normal junk food? We don't have as wide a range as America. A lot of chocolate :P
Holiday Decorating: Before or After Thanksgiving Aussie so there is no Thanksgiving. I refuse to decorate before December.

A Few Favorites
Favorite Movies: The Wizard of Oz, The Goonies, Harry Potter
Favorite Hobbies: Photography, reading, playing music, learning Spanish
Favorite TV Shows: I honestly don't watch a lot of TV these days. Past favourites have been Castle, Gilmore Girls, The X-Files, Bones (although I haven't watched the last couple of seasons...I should fix that).
Favorite Books: Anne of Green Gables series, Harry Potter series, books of the crime/mystery/thriller genre - this is what I've read this year
Favorite Fandoms: Not big on fandoms
Favorite Pairings: See above

LJ Life
What do you usually write about?: My life - work, my crazy kitties, my family, my friends, my hobbies.
How often do you update?: At least two or three times a week.
What do you look for in an LJ friend?: Some common interests would be nice.
How often do you comment? Or expect comments?: It ebbs and flows. If I get busy at work or in life I will read but not always comment. I do try to be better. Likewise, I know people get busy so I don't expect comments on every entry.
Turns offs/Deal-Breakers for an LJ friend: No bigots, no racists, no Trump. I'd rather entries about real life over fandom/fan-fiction, but the occasional one of those interspersed every now and then is okay.

Name: Colleen
Location: Seattle, WA
Occupation: I stay at home with our Toddler Of Terror. In the past I have worked as A Big Boss in the corporate world, early childhood education and retail.

Favorite Holiday Movie: Love, Actually. The smartass part of me wanted to say Thankskilling.
Favorite Holiday Song: Whiskey Christmas. And all of the other ones as well.
Favorite Holiday Traditions: Last year we made a holiday activity advent calendar. It was an effort to stave off a massive depression in re: politics, but it worked so we are doing it again this year. One holiday activity per day during the month of December. It keeps us busy and gives us something different to look forward to.
Favorite Winter Activity Missing the summer. :)
Favorite Winter Drink Eggnog. Hot cocoa. Spiced apple cider. Whiskey in all of them!
Favorite Holiday Meal We are planning a massive seafood spread for Christmas dinner and I am very excited for it - King crab legs, grilled prawns, halibut, salmon, a crunchy green salad of some sort, augratin potatoes and 2 pies (butterscotch, and pumpkin cheesecake).
