In our family, Christmas is a big deal....
We plan and conspire all year round to create, search for and find just the right thing for each other.
Most of our gifts must be made, upcycled or re-used but this year we are also 'allowed' to buy from local stores.
It always amazes me what we come up. For us Christmas is not a religious ceremony but one built on family memories and traditions.
The season begins on November 12th and lasts to Jan. 2nd. (our poor tree usually has only about two needles left by New Years' Day!
My No. #2 son showed us all up by making and wrapping the first gift before the tree was even up!
This weekend saw most of us ramping up the list making and planning and holiday tunes were at full blast!
Next weekend the tree goes up and the eggnog season begins! What are your holiday traditions?
