Christmas Traditions

As I sit here at work during the biggest blizzard of the year I decided to blog my carnival for December.
Traditions, every family has them, some are better than others!
TRADITIONS
. 1. the handing down of statements, beliefs, legends, customs, information, etc., from generation to generation, esp. by word of mouth or by practice: a story that has come down to us by popular tradition.
2. something that is handed down: the traditions of the Eskimos.
3. a long-established or inherited way of thinking or acting: The rebellious students wanted to break with tradition.
4. a continuing pattern of culture beliefs or practices.
5. a customary or characteristic method or manner: The winner took a victory lap in the usual track tradition.

Well we have a lot of traditions, see if you share any:
  • Mom and I bake cookies, puppychow, fudge, and many other things of the food nature. Usually I end up eatting a lot of sugar cookie dough and making a dough ball.
  • Put up the tree with all the ornaments we have collected over the years, and all our knick knacks, mom's barbie ornaments
  • Candy Canes everywhere, on the tree in hot chocolate, YUM
  • James and I Christmas Eve Anniversary (five years this year) trying to find a restaurant that is open later than 6pm!
  • Kurt and I always making small snow hills and sledding down them
  • Princess having to have a path shoveled in the yard for her because she was teeny tiny
  • Playing moms old Christmas records
Traditions, some last and some fade, some change and some stay the same forever.

I wish I had some snow traditions . . . but then again, maybe not. I'm a total homebody. I think I would love being snowed in . . . but I've never actually been snowed in.
