When Chris and I got together we each had our own traditions. For me it was waiting until the Sunday before Christmas, even if that's Christmas Eve, to put up the tree.
For Chris it's spreading out the presents. That's not to say we lay them all out on the floor, but rather we exchange small presents on Christmas Eve and then save a main present for Christmas afternoon. The latter is opened after lunch when everything has been cleared away. Traditionally the time when in my childhood home the TV came on. With us, its more presents.
All these little traditions that we each have make our Christmas unique, and I love them all.
My journaling for this page is all on the back of the star, held in place by two photo turns. I wonder what new traditions we'll start this year to share next year.
