I love the holidays. So much so that I’d be hardpressed to pick a favorite one. Christmas is definitely in the top 3, right up there with Halloween and Valentine’s Day. I love the festivity of it, hauling out all the decorations, planning just the right menu, and celebrating with family and friends. Whatever the holiday, we jump in with both feet. OK, probably me leading the way slightly, but I drag them in happily with me.
We have a few Christmas traditions, and one is our Santa and Snowman collection. When The Husband and I got married, we bought a Santa at Christmas time, and every year, we have continued that tradition. When Nicholas was born, it was Snowmen, and every year, we buy a Snowman to celebrate the holiday with him. It’s one of the many things we look forward to, selecting the perfect one each year. In fact, The Husband complains if I try and buy them without his input. So now 8 Santas and 4 Snowmen in, there’s a little bit of holiday in every room in our house, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What about you? What are your special holiday traditions? Until tomorrow…
A year ago today … those rosy cheeks!
