Are you counting?
There are only 15 more days until Christmas and the excitement is building. There is still a lot I have to do to get everything ready for the fun-filled (few) days and trying not to panic with the time crunch.
We don’t tend to do much holiday things until after Speed’s birthday which is coming up soon. I like to keep them separate so instead of a month-long celebration buildup, we have just over a week of holiday-fun before Christmas.
I love family traditions and there is no real time of year where you see more traditions than around Christmas time. There are some families who go all out and have more activities than I can count. I am not a bah-humbug, but there are some holiday traditions that I just can’t get down with (yes, Santa is one of them) and so they won’t be part of our celebrations.
