As we put up our tree we listened to Christmas music, and tried to find as many ornaments and Christmas decorations as we could amid the boxes. Even though this was our first Christmas tree, we still had enough ornaments to cover the tree. I had some given to us by others, some I had collected over the years for this very time, and some we had bought more recently in case didn’t have enough!
Thinking about Christmas, got me started thinking about Christmas traditions… I am sure every family has them. And now as Jon and I start out family it will be our turn to start our own traditions. Christmas has always been a favorite holiday of mine, and I cannot wait to start some wonderful traditions for years to come.
So far one tradition we have started is putting up our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. I know a lot of people do that, but we decided to join them! Once I have kids, I will bake Christmas cookies with them every year, and I would love to do a gingerbread house since I have never made one before! I also thinking it would be cool to give our kids and each other one gift to open on Christmas Eve – a personalized ornament. A different one every year for every child.
What are some Christmas traditions that you have or want to start in the future? I would love to hear about them!
