Carrie's Christmas Traditions...

by Carrie Walz | December 11, 2011

It's finally starting to look a lot like Christmas at my house. No, not that I am a late bloomer...that is just how my mom always did it. My mom's birthday is 2 days before Christmas and she remembers people always lumping the two together so her mom would always try to make a "special" day for her to try and seperate the two. My birthday isn't as close to Christmas as hers, it is the first week of December but  my mom still  did everything possible to make it my"special"  birthday. Our Christmas tree was never put up before my birthday. Our tree went up the weekend after my birthday along with all the other Christmas decorations. That is how she did it, so that is how I do it, not sure if it is a tradition but I kinda like that she did that for me and I as I got older I really appreciated the whole "tradition" and what she did for me more. Over the years I have tried to make some of my own Christmas traditions with my kids...some stuck and a lot didn't...you know how some things go over with kids. I did however manage to salvage 2 of the many botched ideas, now as they are not that original my kids look forward to them every year. Christmas pretzels...
