It’s less than a week until Christmas. Mere days. Yet we’ve not had a single Christmas discussion. In past years we’ve discussed the best Christmas animation, best Christmas presents, Christmas albums, horrible Christmas songs, Christmas movies, and a lot more. There’s almost nothing left to talk about. So what’s left? How about…
BEST CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS
OK, some of my favorite traditions I’ve not been able to do as I’ve been working in a job that’s rather busy and hectic before Christmas.
12 Days of Christmas: Each day for twelve days before Christmas we’d celebrate a different nationality’s Christmas. We’d eat food from there, learn the traditions and often have something fun. So for Sweden we learned about Black Pete which used to be their version of Santa Claus. (He’d knock on the door and throw in candy)
Decorate the Tree: Yes, I know this seems lame but I used to get so into this. I loved it. My dad would usually be exhausted as he was a college professor. I remember him getting so mad trying to get the lights working. But decorating the tree. Good times.
Seeing the Lights: Blast the Christmas songs in the car and drive around to see the great lights. Much more fun when it’s snowing. (Utah is having a green Christmas this year)
Disguising Presents: Half the fun was trying to get people to guess what you got them which involved strategic boxes that looked nothing like what was inside.
