DoubleD :  A few years ago, it snowed like crazy right before Christmas. I live in the PNW so this was fairly unusual. We were basically housebound.

So my daughter and I dug out an old jigsaw puzzle and put it out on the dining room table. I went through my vinyl and picked a few “quintessential” albums I thought she needed to hear. Wish You Were Here, OK Computer, Tumbleweed Connection…

We listened to records and worked on the puzzle for a few days during her Christmas vacation. We had such a great time, that now we do it every year in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

At the holidays I am all about the Xmas music. Old school traditional songs are my preference. I started at Thanksgiving. I play it at home when I am cleaning or whatever around the house. I listen to an all holiday music channel on the car radio in both directions on my drive to/from work. I have a Xmas channel playing on Pandora on my computer at work all day long.

Time together with all our families is our tradition. Normally it would be Christmas Eve at my parents with my entire family and Christmas Day with my husband’s entire family. This year we are hosting Christmas Eve and both of our families are going to be together

I love all the Christmas gatherings and get-togethers with our friends and families.  I love the gift trading too and just being warm and cozy and enjoying all the holiday FOOD!  LOL.  And it wouldn’t be Christmas for me if I didn’t play that Bandaid song at least 20 times!

I think my favorite holiday tradition is riding around to see Christmas lights. Our son is 2 this year, and he is so overjoyed and fascinated by Christmas lights. It’s something I’ve always loved, but it makes it that much more special to see how much joy he gets from it.
