You guys, I am wild about traditions, but honestly my small family doesn’t have many. That’s OK, we are starting fresh! A few years ago Ben and I got into the tradition of buying our tree on my birthday weekend (the first weekend in December.) (Although this year we bought a small potted pine that we plan to use again until it is so big it has to be planted- so the tradition next year will just be to bring it inside and decorate it.) My pal Naurnie posted about her family’s tradition of her mom giving her and her sister a Christmas book each year, and I love it! I am starting this year with Margaret Wise Brown’s Christmas In the Barn (the original illustrations), because Goodnight Moon is our favorite.
What are some of your favorite holiday traditions?
Favorite holiday books? I would love to hear, I need to be ready for next year!
