Unique Traditions

Todays Holidailie is about unique traditions. I don't know if we really have anything that is unique. We do not put the tree up the day after Thanksgiving that is for sure. In fact, mine is up but still waiting to be decorated. Maybe by Monday. And I sure as heck don't go shopping the day after Thanksgiving. I think you have to be crazy to that.....and anyone who knows me, knows I'm not CRAZY! We do decorate the inside and the outside of our house. And we drink eggnog and listen to Christmas music while we decorate. I should say that is while I decorate. Cause no one else really likes to help. Maybe I can con Harley into doing it this year. When my boys were growing up it was tradition to wait until Christmas morning to open presents. We usually went to either of the grandparents for Christmas Eve and we always stayed home on Christmas. But now it is impossible to find a day that fits for everyone so we break up Christmas into a week of festivities. Ha! Ha! It really has more to do with no one likes anyone else so we have to keep them all apart. No really, with me in nursing and youngest son a cop, neither of us ever get holidays off so we do what works. I have always said....Christmas can be any day that you make it. The Saturday night before Christmas is our night to fill the thermos with hot chocolate, (something spiked for the Mrs.) load up the kids in the Suburban and go see Christmas lights. The kids love it and we always try to locate Santa somewhere.....
