Honk If You Believe In Santa

Continuing on with the Honk If You… series, I’ve got a “Honk If You Believe In Santa” sign to share with you!

Honk If You Believe In Santa | Uncustomary

For this one, I honestly didn’t get that many honks! There’s a lot of factors playing into that, like the fact that it was freezing and the fact that I had no sleeves was probably more alarming than my overall outfit and sign on the side of the road. I’d also like to remind you that I shoot my photos a month in advance, so this was taken before Thanksgiving, and if you’re like me you don’t start any wintery celebrations until the calendar officially rolls over to December 1st, so I totally understand people not being ready for Santa talk when they hadn’t had their trash bag full of mashed potatoes yet.

I’m quite honestly not someone who celebrates Christmas for the holiday’s actual purpose. I grew up celebrating Christmas and I have certain traditions that I love to take part in, but I’m learning as I grow up that it’s all about making them my own and recognizing what works for me, even if it doesn’t fit into a box someone else created. One of the things I love about Christmas is the magical idea of Santa and the belief and faith it inspires in you from a young age.

If YOU believe in Santa, hop on over to Instagram and leave a car and/or Santa emoji in the comments to make sure we keep his sleigh flying on magic!

PS – This was intended to be a year-long series, but they seem to be pretty popular. If you’re interested in having this project spill over into 2018, let me know so I can start planning!
