I’ve been thinking about holiday traditions and what we will choose to do this year (we are down to Paul and me, though my son will likely pop in at some point, plus friends).
Of course we will listen to music from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra just after Thanksgiving. Tortilla soup on Christmas Eve, yup. We won’t be having a Christmas tree this year (Widget thinks that all trees are meant for chewing, part beaver?). Maybe next year.
I’d love to hear your ideas about your holiday traditions. What do you do (for any of the approaching holidays) that blesses you, your husband and your family. I love the wealth of community and the abundance of great ideas.
And, well, we need a contest …
So please share your favorite holiday traditions as a comment to the post. On the 21st of October I’ll pick a number and the poster on that spot will win these yummy teas from Heavenly Special Teas. (If you can’t wait and need to order now, please put “Lori Byerly” down as the consultant. Thanks so much.)
#1006 Caramel Crème Brule (an exquisite blend of caramel and vanilla flavors)
#1044 White Cherry (2010 World Tea Championship winner for white flavored tea)
#1068 Rainbow Rooibos (a wonderful amaretto flavor)
I’m looking forward to hearing all your great ideas.
Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love. Hamilton Wright Mabie
