I’ve enjoyed hearing about people’s Christmas traditions in response to my November post: Traditions. Thank you! My favorite idea is giving three gifts because the Three Wise Men each brought Jesus a gift. What a great way to limit the gift giving and keep the focus on why we celebrate Christmas in the first place!
One tradition I want to continue with Elijah includes buying an ornament each year that helps us document the year. Last year I gave John a “Miracle in the Making” ornament with Elijah’s ultrasound. (Who knew how true that statement would be come March!?) This year, I personalized a 1st Christmas ornament through Shutterfly.
As much as I gawk at beautiful Christmas trees decorated with perfectly matching bulbs and gold ribbon, I like that our tree tells a story. I look forward to adding a piece to this story every year.
