What special traditions did you guys have over the holidays growing up? Every Christmas, minus two freaky weather years, my whole family has been together in Oklahoma for a week to catch up on life together. This year looked like we weren't going to have a 'normal' Christmas, or Thanksgiving for that matter, since we were in Seattle with little money for plane fares and I was trying to think of all of the ways we'd be able to start our own traditions with Sebastian. But really I was so sad that we'd be spending it by ourselves. So, in the midst of having to leave the city we've grown to love, I'm holding on to the notion of Christmas with my family and a week in Oklahoma, thanks to the most generous of grandparents. This is my favorite time of the year!
So, how does everyone else celebrate? What puts you in the mood for Christmas/Hannukah/Winter Solstice, etc.?
