Well, don’t think of it as a belated Christmas posting, thinking of it as a plan to get ahead for next year. I had a lot of time to think recently on our VERY long drive from Phoenix, Arizona to Sacramento, California. Our Christmas plans had been, quite frankly, spur of the moment due to lots of life issues, and before embarking on our trip we spent some time with our adopted family who have a tradition all their very own.
It was after that experience, and during our long drive up the California coast that I realized that not only do I have pretty cool friends, but those friends have equally unique traditions. So in no particular order, here are some traditions from my own family, and some from my friends.
