We’re military families. That means we don’t necessarily celebrate Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving or Christmas on Christmas. Sometimes “life” interrupts. But, I do know that there is one thing we are very “rich” in and that is tradition. Our very being is traditional.
Our family has all sorts of little habits, rituals, and yes, traditions. Especially around the holidays. We started one last year that was giving the girls their own Christmas tree to decorate. On Christmas Eve we always get new pajamas. Christmas presents from us are wrapped but from Santa their unwrapped. We always read “Twas the Night Before Christmas” on Christmas Eve during our traditional “program” and we always hang a sock for the UNforgotten soldiers.
What are some of yours? Will you please share?
