Vanessa
When I was young, we always had an artificial Christmas tree.  Now that I have a family of my own, we take great joy in either going to our local tree farm or nursery and choosing a real tree.  We usually put it up the first week of December so we have many weeks of enjoyment from it.  Playing classic Christmas songs by Nat King Cole or Elvis  and drinking candy cane hot chocolate while decorating the tree is one of our favourite holiday activities.

My favourite Christmas tradition is the first one of the season… setting up the Christmas tree! It is quite the event at our house. Christmas music is playing, hot chocolate is poured, and then I set up the tree so that the boys and I can all share in the decorating. The boys get ridiculously excited because it’s a bit of a race to get it all done by the time daddy gets home so that he is surprised! And it’s also an early gift for daddy, since the last thing daddy wants to do is decorate! ;)

Putting up the Christmas Tree is also one of my favourite parts of Christmas! Thanks ladies for sharing yours! I’ll be sharing a few more tomorrow and some after Christmas too!

A New Series: Holiday Traditions

Hi guys!

Today I’m starting my series…

Holiday Traditons copy

As we roll into last weeks of the holiday season, some of my lovely blogger friends will be sharing their special holiday traditions, old and new.  The format might not always be the same, some days I might share a few blogger traditions, some days only one, and I’ll be sure throw some of my own in from time to time.  I hope you enjoy hearing these stories and memories.

My first blogger to share her holiday tradition is Heather from Interior Groupie!

Hello everyone! I am so happy to be here at Recreated sharing one of my favourite holiday traditions.

My family has many holiday traditions, but the one that sticks out the most to me is our ornament tradition.
My grandmother bought my sister and I one commemorative ornament each year. My mom wrote our initials and year on each ornament, and growing up we had “our” tree with all of our individual ornaments. My sister and I looked forward to a new ornament each year.
Once we moved out into our own places, the ornaments came with us and we had a full tree right from the start. It makes it really nice to celebrate Christmas with a full decorated tree with ornaments from each year on it! I think this is a great idea for kids, or for newly married couples. It is so fun to put the ornaments up and remember each one of them as they get hung on the tree.
Do any of you have a similar tradition? I look forward to hearing all of the different traditions!
