The 12 Crafts of Christmas: Day 8 Annual Traditions

There’s a lot of pressure to have traditions at Christmas.  But, truth is, “first annual” is an oxymoron.  Nevertheless, that’s where I am with having “family” traditions. Lucky for me, 6-month-old’s don’t remember much, and nobody remembers being 6 months old.  In fact, I figure that we’ve got a good five years to come up with “traditions.”

Rather than put pressure on myself to plunk down a bunch of traditions all at once, I came up with the idea that we would add one tradition each year.  That is, amidst all the great things that occur at Christmas, we were going to try and make one of them happen again the following Christmas.

In order not to forget what we wanted to repeat, I bought an inexpensive photo album at AC Moore, and decorated a page with the tradition we started.  This year, it’s our night of carols and cocoa.
