Over the past 20 years, since my daughter was a toddler, I have always been the woman at the centre of what to do and how to do it for Christmas. I have always put on a plan of when to start and how to start doing everything that is needed to be done.
While I prepare anything any day at the countdown you’ll surely find me looking calm with a glass of chilled white wine in my hand, from the list of gifts to buy to the day I will put up the Christmas tree and decorations. And I never forget the last bit on my list are my flowers because without my flower arrangement, it wouldn’t be Christmas for me. Like they are a must in my home the whole year through, they make my Christmas special too. The list of shopping for the food is made two weeks before Christmas and the shopping is done four to five days prior to Christmas and plus the last minute shopping is always done the day before or on the morning of Christmas Eve.
(Flower arrangement done by myself and my Ivys were collected wild) Our family tradition has been passed on from generations to generations. Tradition is about the importance of family, and may never be more visible than during the Christmas season.
It will be exciting to see what new Christmas tradition are effectuated when my own daughter leaves the nest and have families of her own. Some keep their traditions and pass it along, which I hope my own child will keep our family tradition running in her own family one day with a bit of her own fashion mode splash in it. How does your family observe their Christmas days and what are the traditions that you enfold? I chance we all have a few merry traditions in quotidian and I would envision every family has some unique traditions of their own that are exceptional! That’s the glamour of toasting and remembering Christmas spent with family.
