Trust me: I am not a Grinch. I love the holidays, and eagerly join in on a million different holiday traditions in my area. I drive through the ridiculous light show. I listen to the radio station that only plays holiday songs. I go to the Nutcracker. I decorate my house.
I do it all!
And now that I have a daughter (she’s six!), all of these traditions mean more to me then they ever did before. I love seeing her eyes light up when we do something fun, even if it’s as mundane as seeing the Santa at the local mall. She loves it, and I love celebrating with her.
But there are still a bunch of different holiday traditions that people do every year, and I do not understand them. Maybe you can enlighten me? Go for it. Tell me if you disagree.
