Christmas Traditions

This Christmas season, I've been reflecting on a couple of whimsical family traditions my family has.

  • My dad saving all the gifts he buys for my mother so that I can wrap them
  • The gift without a label that my dad always says must be his--and it is . . . because he buys it for himself
  • Aunt Rosie's punch, frozen orange juice and sugar crushed and mixed with 7-Up
  • My mom's willingness to have a turkey again if we want it . . . and something else if we don't
  • The Christmas afternoon movie we usually go to
  • The punch lines my brothers and I repeat. Sample: It almoht Cwitmat! (yeah, I know, that means nothing to you if you're not in my immediate family)
  • Our favorite Christmas song: Eydie Gorme and Steve Lawrence singing "That Holiday Feeling" which I'll share with you. Merry Christmas!

    Perfect traditions, Kathee!
    It's been at least a decade since I've spent Christmas with my extended family so I'm not sure I could even list our traditions. I know that food is involved along with layered jello & Whiskey Sours. That's all I can think of right now but it'll be fun to try to improve upon my list over the next few days!

    Enjoy wrapping all of your dad's gifts!!
