I’ll admit it: I’m one of those people who absolutely rejoices once the holiday season comes around. It was always a big deal around my house growing up, so decorating, listening to Christmas music, and cooking up a storm are the highlight of my year. Unfortunately, being married to a man who works retail puts a little damper on my celebration. His busiest time of the year often leaves me to all the Christmas plans on my own; however, I have made it a point to have a few holiday traditions that the two of us can share together.
I don’t mind putting up most of the decorations, but I always save the tree for Aaron and I to do together. The Christmas music blasts (while he makes fun of my knowing every word to every song) and we trim the tree together. We also exchange a Christmas ornaments and host an annual Christmas Eve dinner with friends. He might not quite revel in all things holiday like me, but I think he’s coming around…little by little. Besides, who can be grumpy with twinkling Christmas lights around the house? Not this girl.Another reason to keep me smiling? Cute holiday-themed everything. I may not be quite confident enough to rock a tacky Christmas sweater around the mall, but this adorable tshirt from Skip N’ Whistle makes the cut, especially when layered with my all-time favorite: chambray!
What are your favorite holiday traditions?
