I just got off the phone with my dad. He is in the process of doing his tax returns (my mom has FINALLY convinced him that grudgingly waiting in line at the post office at 11:00 p.m. on April 14th is not all that its cracked up to be). It reminded me of a tradition (see below) that I miss being a part of. So, as a sort-of written reminder to myself (and perhaps a few ideas for you), I’d like to make a list of traditions I want to start/continue with my family and kids.
January 1—go out to a big lunch to celebrate the New Year
Mid-October—pumpkin carving contest.
November 11--take a moment (or a day) to thank U.S. veterans
Week before Thanksgiving—fill a “thankfulness” jar to remember how blessed I am
Thursday/Friday of Thanksgiving—midnight shopping with my mom, sisters and daughters
December 24—pre-/post- Christmas Eve mass buffet filled with delicious appetizers
December 31—pack away Christmas decorations with a message about what I think the upcoming year will bring
Please post a comment with your favorite tradition!
