I did a piece this week for Swerve Magazine about family holiday traditions which got me thinking about my own family traditions. Most of them include the build up to Christmas... playing Frank Sinatra, The Carpenters, and Neil Diamonds Christmas albums, watching old Christmas specials on tapes from the 80s (did anybody else love the Muppet's Christmas special from back then with the Sesame Street cross over)! Every Christmas we always have a big celebration on Christmas Eve with lots of food drinks and games with a lot of animated conversations. We would always make my Grandmother's secret recipe of cookies ans go looking at Christmas lights, both of which I continue to do on my own. All those things are reasons why this is my favourite time of year. Any crazy christmas traditions for you?
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Stay safe and warm!
