Yes, given my love for Eeyore, Winnie-the-Pooh is totally one of my fandoms.
I wish I’d thought of this one! Oh, Eeyore…
Here’s one closer to home and themed for the season! This is a Civil War Trail table marker describing the Confederate’s “Christmas Raid” behind Union lines to steal supplies and destroy train tracks before heading off.

While on a solo snarfari in Boston (my third such adventure there) Eeyore and I found this plaque about Goodwife Ann Glover, the first Catholic Martyr in Massachusetts who was an Irish widow hanged as a witch because she refused to renounce her Catholic faith.
This is one of many historical buildings I found during my trip to Denver, Colorado in 2010. This victorian style building is the Union Warehouse, now called the Hotel Barth. It was built in 1882 and added to the National Register of Historic Places one hundred years later on June 3, 1982.
Eeyore listens to the famous author Alex Haley read to students in Annapolis, Maryland. I went on a photo tour and took a photo of this statue after the tour. My instructor walked by and told me to get down. I’ve got to admit, the photo came from a much better perspective. Plus, Eeyore got more time to listen
I watched Roots for the first time in July, so I thought this was an appropriate photo to post!
After taking my car in to get new brakes (which now make sounds the first few times I use them each time I get in the car… is that normal? Should I be concerned? Am I going to die?) I looked down at the floor of my car to see that some time during the servicing Eeyore had jumped off his spot above my glove compartment and had landed helplessly on his back. It was so adorably pathetic I couldn’t help but capture the moment with a photo:
Why do I have an Eeyore who lives in my car in the first place? One, I love Eeyore as a character so why the heck not? Isn’t the better question: why doesn’t everyone have Eeyores who live in their cars? Two, the real reason is that I hunt historical markers for fun via Markeroni.com and this stuffed Eeyore is my mascot. He appears in many photos I take of historical buildings, markers, sites, etc.
So I thought it would be fun if, regularly, I would post an interesting photo of Eeyore somewhere. Or a photo of Eeyore somewhere interesting. Or… you get the idea. I’m thinking maybe the 1st and 15th of every month.
My Christmas tree is a mix of ornaments from my childhood and ones from later on in my life. Many of them are related to my favorite fandoms, naturally. I thought I would showcase one every other day in December in a 12 Days of Fandom Ornaments series.
As Eeyore, from Winnie-the-Pooh, is my personal mascot, I thought I should start the series off with him. This is a 2013 Hallmark ornament, though I didn’t buy it at a Hallmark store. I feel like this every time I attempt to put lights up on my tree–but I’m too indecisive to buy a pre-lit Christmas tree (I want to be able to change the lights from year to year).
