Some use them more than others. As parents to a 6 month old, we are already thinking about new traditions to make with our daughter as time goes on. I love the idea of traditions being passed down from one generation to next. For example: my husband's family always starts their meal with prayer around their island while we all hold hands and pray for each other and those that have died. I have a huge grin on my face every time we do it because it makes me feel closer to everyone. That tradition is now a part of our home every day. After all, isn't that kind of the point of traditions? With my immediate family, we recently started a new tradition to make our Christmas party themed. Last year was pajama themed and it was so awesome to not have to worry about looking all dolled up or anything. We all just sat around in our pajamas laughing, sipping on some spirits and truly enjoying each other's company. This year, we are thinking 70's themed. Can't wait to get my hands on some bell bottoms!
