Our Own Personal Christmas Traditions

As you get older you try to establish your own Christmas traditions. With little family in our immediate area we've tried to create our own personal memories......

1) Christmas Movies
We have a slew of Christmas movies and we work our way through them each December beginning after Thanksgiving. Vintage is best and we typically watch:

Miracle on 34th Street
White Christmas
Holiday Inn
Christmas in Connecticut
Christmas Vacation
Some version of Scrooge

Have I missed any good ones?

White Christmas is my favorite.  

2) The Hater's Guide to the Williams-Sonoma Catalog
While this isn't really a tradition, I look forward to Drew's commentary for some of the best laughs around the holidays.  Unfortunately this year Drew was in an accident and is recovering so we'll have to enjoy the 2017 version for now. And get well soon Drew!

3) Peppermint Bran Mashes for the Horses
My faithful steeds get this every Christmas Eve!  I mix up beet pulp and add crushed peppermints and warm water for a treat they only get at Christmas.  You can also buy it.

4)  Needlepoint Ornaments
I have a garland that is reserved only for needlepoint ornaments. My collection is not large enough for an entire tree, so this will have to do for now.

5) Christmas Eve Dinner
We have a fancy dinner at either the cabin or the house, by the fire.  No where else will do.

Wishing you and your loved ones (four-legged too) a wonderful Christmas Eve!  Be safe, have fun, stay true to yourself and create some memories..........


  1. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family. Just wanted to know that I look forward to your posts.

  2. Thank you! Happy holidays to you and yours!
