Traditions mean different things to different people, but they all have something in common. They transcend warmth, comfort and joy. Traditions take us back to times in our life that may mean more now than they did at the present moment. They provide us with the gift of gratitude and connect us with our loved ones, both those who are still with us and those who have passed away.
I believe as we age, we appreciate traditions more and find the value in passing them on from generation to generation. My husband and I have begun passing along family traditions to our daughter, several of which take place around this time of year in celebration of Christmas.
What are your favorite traditions? Be sure to capture them on camera and in writing so future generations can experience them as well. Have fun this holiday season :-)
Until next time...enjoy making memories!
