I still have the novel to finish. 52,000 odd words wasn't the whole story. But I'm exhausted. Things have been nuts at my house. We have a puppy, who is adorable, but takes plenty of supervision to assure he does not chew the house down. The kids have various projects coming up for school. The holidays are coming up.
We don't have a lot of traditions. There have been some I've tried to start that didn't work out--more about that later. We have our fake tree (not my first choice, I can tell you) and some decorations we put up around the house. We have ornaments that hang from the light fixtures in our kitchen year round actually. I like to bake a few different kinds of cookies and treats to share. I give a plate to our mail lady, and to the kids' bus drivers.
We also have a birthday on Christmas Day so we used to celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve but our son who has that birthday has requested that we merge the two. There are a few movies we watch leading up to the big day.
A question for my readers...what are your favorite holiday traditions? Do you put up a tree? Light the menorah? Watch special films or read certain stories? Do you put up stockings or leave cookies and milk out for a certain man in a red suit? Is there a particular ornament or song that means a lot to you? Please share your stories.
