I always love the time leading up to Christmas...the "Christmas Season." Coming home to a decorated house after a stressful semester is always wonderful. My family has traditions for the holidays and, for me, that is what makes the holidays special.
The house is always fully decorated by my mother as she loves holiday decorating. The hallmark of the house is always the 12-14ft live tree strung with over 1,000 lights. Of course being home for the holidays always means lots of good food and cookies!
Some of our traditions include gathering on Christmas Eve, dinner at the house on Christmas Day, and even small things such as adding a new Lilly Pulitzer ornament to the tree each year. There is always a little pink and green around the house!
My favorite is waking up to the smell of coffee on Christmas Day, relaxing and opening gifts, and the house smelling of fresh spices and balsam.
What does being home for the holidays mean for you?
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!
