Female Founders Share Their Favorite Holiday Traditions

‘Tis the holiday season! Our favorite part about this time of year is gathering together with loved ones and celebrating long running traditions while making new memories that can  live on year after year. We spoke with the founders of Golde (Trinity Mouzon Wofford), Tea Drops (Sashee Chandran) and our very own Partake (Denise Woodard) about what the holiday season and traditions look like in their world. 


TEA DROPS

Founder & CEO: Sashee Chandran

Sashee Chandran Tea Drops

What’s your favorite holiday, and why is it your favorite? 


Sashee: Thanksgiving because it gives me warm and cozy nostalgic vibes & it’s a time when I know I get to see my family! 


What holiday traditions did you have when you were a kid? Do you celebrate any of them today?


Sashee: Because my parents are immigrants from different countries and cultures (my Dad is from Sri Lanka and my Mom is from China), our holiday traditions looked a little different. In addition to having Turkey at the dining table on Thanksgiving, we also had various curries and Chinese shrimp stir frys. Still to this day, our Thanksgiving meals look and taste a bit different, but I wouldn't have it any other way. 


What’s your favorite holiday dish? 


Sashee: Mashed potatoes and my mom's Shrimp Curry dish!  


What are you thankful for this holiday season? 


Sashee: So much! My good health, good fortune, my family, the love that surrounds me, AND that I still get to do life work that I LOVE. 


What is your favorite holiday movie?


Sashee:Home Alone” 


What is one thing you look forward to during the holiday season? 


Sashee: Time with my family!


What product from your brand would make a great holiday gift? 


Sashee: Our Medium and Large Tea Samplers gifted in a beautiful wood box make the perfect holiday gifts!
