I've been thinking of this since yesterday. My daughter had to write about a family tradition for school. After trying to come up with something, I am at a loss. It has hit me, now, that with the recent loss of both my parents, that our holiday traditions went with them.
My daughter and I just put up the tree this past weekend, and we will make my famous butter cutout cookies, but the rest of our holiday traditions, well, we will not be able to carry out. It all revolved around going to grandma and grandpa's. I know we can start our own traditions, but it's really sad to realize that our Christmas holiday traditions are over.
It is true that I have to parcel out my energy just to get ready for Christmas, but we WILL make my cookies, come H#$% or highwater!!
If I can get my fingers to cooperate, perhaps we can sing Christmas carols around the piano. That should prove interesting. LOL
