Asking people what holiday traditions they are most excited about is one of my favorite questions this time of the year. It starts great conversations. I love hearing the answers. Listening to all the traditions that friends get excited about is cool. Growing up our family holiday tradition wasn’t to decorate till Christmas Eve. Growing up, I always tried to get my parents to decorate early and they never budged. And by the way, we would cut our own tree down. I definitely appreciate that tradition now.
I have noticed that friends/families favorite traditions don’t involve us going crazy for gifts. Usually, it is the things that we do spending time together. Comment below with your favorite traditions! Maybe you will see one that you will adopt.
I saw this quote from Louise L. Hay today and I thought it appropriate.
”Learn to accept prosperity instead of exchanging it. If a friend gives you a gift or takes you to lunch, you don’t have to immediately reciprocate. Allow the person to give you the gift. Accept it with joy and pleasure. It’s okay to be prosperous; there is no shame or guilt – just joy and acceptance.” – Louise L. Hay
