Well, here we are: the last Fortune Cookie Friday of 2018! Can you believe it? Where has this year gone?
This week's fortune was sent in by a reader, and it seems appropriate to the time of year:
I know not everyone celebrates Christmas, but the world does seem to take a break around the last two weeks of December. This seems like a good time of year to make plans. Hint: "plans" don't have to be formal, either!A happy event will take place in your home.
So, with that in mind, I hope that you will take some time to have a happy event at some point over the next few weeks, and here are some ideas if you'd like! Set up a holiday hot chocolate bar and invite friends over for movies (have that endless debate about Die Hard while you're at it). You could host a New Year's party, or, if that's not your style, have a game night. Design a winter-themed brunch, or go on a post-Christmas discounted shopping spree. If you're feeling like hiding out for some well-deserved R&R, how about making some mimosas and waffles and binge-watching Netflix in your jimmy-jams? (This one sounds about my speed, LOL.)

My point is, anything you can think of that will soothe your soul and make you happy qualify as "happy events," to me. Take some time for yourself, decide to do something fun, and put your own spin on it. :)
So as you have these happy events these next few weeks, why don't you share them here? I feel like when people share the good stuff going on in their lives with each other, it's easy for the happiness to multiply. I'll share mine, below.
And since it is the Friday before Christmas: if you celebrate Christmas or the holiday season in any way, then from my family to yours, may you have a warm and wonderful holiday and many happy events to come! 💛🐝
