Christmas Traditions


Defining the Word; 
Traditions

The transmission of customs or beliefs from generation to generation,
or the fact of being passed on in this way

A long-established custom or belief that has been passed on in this way


At Christmas time I always think back to the Traditons
that my parents passed on to me... Favorite Traditions!

Christmas Tree, Presents, Shopping
Our Church Singing Christmas Tree 
and the Tradition I remember the most...

My Mom's Christmas Cookies!
She baked so many cookies they filled
several aluminum turkey bakers!

This year I am going to bake a few of 
my favorite cookies from the recipes that 
I kept from my Mom!


There are so many words that sum up traditions
 that I hope I am passing down to my family...

Tree, Ornaments, Lights and of course Santa!


A new tradition I hope to start is placing Holly
 in our wreath welcoming family and friends.

Love the Red sparkle of this jewel!
Now is the time to begin researching what 
varietal of Holly I will plant next Spring.

Any Suggestions?


The next few weeks I will share 

Traditions 

that have been passed down from my parents.
Also, new Traditions that I can share with our 
children and grandchildren!
