During the holidays many people get asked what are some of your family’s holiday traditions..and it really wasn’t something that I thought about until I sat down and thought about it. My family doesn’t have any crazy Holiday Traditions. As I have become part of Bobby’s family, I have been able to see that all families do have different ways to spend the Holidays with their loved ones. A few of both of our families traditions are:
- Christmas Eve Dinner @ Bobby’s Sisters – Every Christmas eve Bobby’s sister Sarah hosts dinner at her house. We do a Secret Santa and it’s so much fun to do! I have never done a Secret Santa with my family because we we are so small, but getting to do this with my soon to be family is a fun way to get to know each other.
- My FAVORITE Christmas tradition – This has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl, it’s stringing popcorn and cranberries to place on the tree. It has been a tradition to do in my family for a long time, and I knew when I moved out and into my own place that I wanted to keep that tradition going. It is one of my favorite pastimes to sit in the living room and string along, while having a snack and watching Christmas movies with my parents and I hope one day my children enjoy this tradition as much as I do.
- Visiting La Salette Festival of Lights – Every year a they put up thousands of lights in our town at a seminary called La Salette Shrine. They have been doing this since way before I was born, but my family has gone every year (almost) since I was little. If you are in the Attleboro MA area during the holidays you definitely need to check this place out!
So we may not have a lot of traditions but the ones we do have are close to my heart. The holidays would not be the same if we didn’t do these things and they are the events that I look forward to all year.
Do you guys have any fun Holiday traditions? If you do I would love to hear about them, and maybe i’ll even steal them for the future 🙂
Until Next Time,
