While Thanksgiving is my favorite time of year, I love Christmas because it is a time when my children and grandchildren are full of fun and the wonder of it all.
Take today for instance, we baked, laughed, sang, watched movies, wrapped, shopped, teased each other and visited together. Our favorite traditions are:
Read a wonderful book with a Christmas riddle called St. Nicholas and the Valley Beyond Hardcover – 1994 by Ellen / Burhans, Richard W. Kushner (Author).
Christmas Cream Tea for the ladies/girls in our family and that number has grown from 4 of us to 16 on some Christmases. This year we will have 11 counting the youngest granddaughter. The men have hot chocolate somewhere.
Then we have snacks for Christmas Eve dinner and the children open exchange gifts from names they drew on Thanksgiving. Grandparents (us-we started young, haha) make sure at least one gift is under the tree for each person.
Baking a Christmas cake for Baby Jesus and reading the Christmas story is wonderful and then all the darlings go home. We still have 4 at home so that will mean a Santa visit here still.
Finally, the children sleep in one room on Christmas Eve.
We live in the far North so I hope that you have wonderful snow if you want it and clear warm skies if you don’t. To my friends in Kiwi land and Down Under, I love that you celebrate in summer and I hope to share a holiday with you some year soon.
What holiday traditions do you enjoy?
During this most Blessed and Holy time of year, I wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
And may all your Sweet dreams become realities and all your realities be dreamy. Below is winter where I live.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking
for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading
your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem
to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if
this is a format issue or something to do with
web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post
to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem
fixed soon. Thanks
Thank you. It might be the plug ins. My daughter looked at it and did a little work but not even sure it worked. this was in my spam folder and never saw it. Apologize. Happy New year.
