I love traditions. I love what they mean for family. To say Christmas traditions are my favourite, well, they are definitely up there. We started the advent traditions when my big two where very little. First day of advent we go and visit Santa and choose a decoration for the tree. Somewhere along the line though, things got crazy! First day of advent now involves a trip to the city to do all of the above plus play in the water fountains (chasing pigeons optional) and we have added real Chistmas trees to the mix, where we go and choose a real Christmas tree which we mark and then go and pick up closer to Christmas. Its meant to be fun but when someone doesn't get their choice of tree things can go south pretty quick. Its meant to be fun right? Nothing icecreams can't fix.
Let the decorating begin!
Happy Holidays everyone!
