Celebrate The Holidays-Holiday Traditions & Ideas Edition
I love the Holidays, they put a big smile on my face. Christmas makes me feel like a little kid, woo hoo!! I love decorating our apartment, we put up our tree the day after Thanksgiving, and take it down, New Years Day. The tree we use, was my Mommas Christmas tree, so, of course, it means alot to me. We use some of our ornaments, and some of my Mommas old ones. That way, I feel she is decorating with us. Christmas was her favorite Holiday, and is mine also. We listen to Christmas music, while we are decorating. Actually, we do some dancing around our tree, lol Another tradition while decorating, is drinking mugs of hot chocolate, and sharing a big bowl of popcorn. Yummy. I love baking at this time of year, cookies, cakes, breads, you name it, I bake it!! I cook a big dinner Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Turkey, with all the trimmings for Thanksgiving, and Ham, with all the trimmings for Christmas. A great tradition at Christmas, is baking a Birthday cake for Jesus, and eating a piece of it on Christmas Eve, after reading the Christmas Story. I light candles on Thanksgiving and Christmas for my Momma, and this year, my Brother also. Remembering them, is very important to me. Thanks for letting me share some of my traditions, be blessed everyone.
