The older I get the more important Christmas traditions become. Some of my fondest memories as a child were centered around Christmas. I grew up in a very large family, and our Christmases were probably much smaller than the norm, but they were full of sweet times and beautiful memories. My mother usually sewed my Christmas dress. I could always find it tucked way back in her closet……yes I was a snooper! One time I remember being underneath her bed with my older brother, my feet sticking out, and in she came! Oopsie!!!! I was even known to unwrap my gifts and then rewrap them and place them nicely underneath the tree. I was terrible! Thank heavens that urge is gone! I like the surprise so much more now!!!!!!!
One of the BEAUTIFUL things we have here in Salt Lake City, Utah, is Temple Square. It is always so well manicured at any season, but at Christmastime…..it comes to life! It’s absolutely brilliant with thousands and thousands of lights! It has been a beautiful display of light and sparkle since 1965!!! Here is a little history of the LIGHTS on Temple Square. We love to visit at least once during the holidays, and is one of our favorite Christmas traditions. If you’re in town, it is an ABSOLUTE MUST SEE, and I promise you’ll love it!
I would love to hear about your holiday traditions! It’s never too late to start a new one! These traditions and memories are what your little ones will hang on to as they begin their families. I’m grateful for mine and will be talking about them in the next few weeks. Have a great Sunday everyone!!!!!!!
