Depending on how you celebrate, the holidays are either in full swing for you or are just about to happen. I am gearing up for my holiday celebrations, and I can’t wait for Christmas morning to open all my presents. Now, of course I don’t get as many presents as I did when I was a kid, but I still enjoy the tradition of having them under the tree and opening them on Christmas morning.
Speaking of holiday traditions, I must say that I really love them. I went through a period in my life (teens and early 20s) when I was pretty bah humbug about the holidays. These days, I am able to enjoy the small things more, and that includes holiday traditions, even if they are a bit goofy or hokey. For example, I enjoy watching holiday movies much more than I did when I was younger, even watching the same ones year after year. I also like hanging up my stocking every year, even if I am filling it myself. And of course, I love the tradition of baking cookies.
I think holiday traditions are important to me because they connect me to the past and warm and fuzzy emotions. Whenever I watch a holiday movie I’ve seen before, I have sweet memories of the other times I’ve watched it. And when I do a little baking, it takes me back to my mom and grandma baking up a storm in the little Colorado house and kitchen I grew up with.
