I for one love traditions, and we have many. My family has always celebrated tradition and many of the ones we have are carried over from happy childhood memories. I'd love for you to share your favorite traditions by leaving a comment, and I will share ours.
Ours begin the day after Thanksgiving with putting up our tree. In my family we received an ornament every year, my Mom carefully tracked each one noting when we received it and who it was from. Now my Mom and grandmother continue the tradition with my girls. We receive a box with new ornaments (Hallmark of course) and special goodies to snack on while we decorate. We love pulling them out and remembering when and why we got them, we tell the girls stories about when we were young. It's really special. Then we have a little crazy fun.
