Christmas Traditions

I grew up with a handful of traditions with my mom that I love and continue to do: Christmas eve PJs, picking out our real Christmas trees and decorating them, baking cookies and watching Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade (even though we are Canadian.)

When Danny came into my life, I decided we should have some of our own traditions as well. The Toronto Christmas Market has quickly become one of those traditions but we have a few others that I’m particularly fond of. I decorate the inside of the house while he takes care of the outdoor lights, I snap photos of us with Alice tangled up in lights by the fireplace in the basement, we go out to our favourite sushi joint and have a before or after Christmas date night there, and we watch a few Christmas movies together.

Every year that passes, the more these traditions mean to me and I count myself lucky to have them.
