While singing Christmas Carols, decked in our Santa hats and drinking some mulled cider, the Christmas tree is finally up :) And dressed with all of our homemade ornaments. Gosh, I love this time of year ...
As we dressed the tree, I was struck how much I cherish some age old traditions, and some of our own. They give us consistency and something to look forward to. They make a special time, that much more so and provide us a link to the past, while providing us with memories that will last a lifetime.
Family traditions give every member of the family a stronger sense of belonging. Being a part of a family is more than living in the same home, it's about relationships and family bonds.
What Christmas traditions do you uphold?
