It’s that time of year again, malls are filled with busy shoppers, wrapping paper swallows the inside of your house, the tree is decorated, the lights are up, and Christmas music is playing on every radio station. “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!”
In my Christmas past, it has always been an important family holiday. I saw all the cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. Santa filled my stocking with a toothbrush, a fruit, and goodies any kid would want, before leaving a surprise for myself and my brothers around the Christmas tree. Every year we held the same traditions and every year was just as great as the last.
With changing times traditions began to fade; cousins getting married and grandparents passing away. Instead of two Christmases – Christmas Day and Boxing Day – it has gone down to one, but family still joins us for Christmas morning.
As time goes on, traditions change. And although we may be sad to see the old ones go, we can watch new ones come to life. What are your Christmas traditions? What were your Christmas traditions as a child? Traditions make great memories, and they are perfect to pass down to a family of your own.
