  3. ~the merriest of holiday blessings upon your family...wonderful traditions here...may the magic remain with all each day that comes forth...i remember my father and uncle doing the same...dressings up and or climbing on the roof so we could hear santa and his reindeer...hehehe...much love light and blessings be with you and yours~

  4. What wonderful Christmas traditions! It's funny because we have many of the same traditions....thank you for sharing.

  5. These are lovely Christmas traditions.
    Thank your for sharing them.
    Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year

  6. Perhaps we just go with the flow now. Most of our traditions involved things for the kids when they were little, such as: hay on the roof for the reindeer. The only thing that seems to be repeated now is Christmas Eve services. Oh yes, particular goodies seem to make it to our table every year - my favorite is hot chocolate with whipped cream on top and a candy cane standing in it. Lots of little things, nothing big.

  7. Traditions to last a lifetime! Love it!
    So tired out tonight but I wanted to come and wish my new friend a Happy New Year.
    May it overflow with honey and sweet memories and a whole lot of magical fun!
