We have less than a month left in this year of 2020
that will go down in the history books, and not in a
good way. However, I would like to deviate from the
gloom and doom that has taken over our homes and
Let's discuss tidings of great joy, the advent of the
Christmas season. There are traditions galore when it
come to this Holiday. The yule log, Christmas tree,
baubles and bangles, and twinkling lights, singing and
listening to wonderful carols.
Here in Buffalo, New York, its cold and snowy, and at
times, a winter wonderland.
I am curious as to what traditions you have?
Do you hang up Christmas stockings?
Put up a Christmas Tree? When? Most homes will
probably have their trees decorated and lit by now.
We'll be putting our tree up within a week.
"Ooooo" so tasty. Do you bake or buy? Do you have a
favorite cookie? It's hard for me to choose just one!
What kind of Christmas crafty thing do you make? With
or without children.
How about handmade Christmas gifts? When I find the
time, I like to crochet and quilt, which make very
personal and special presents to those loved ones.
For you information:
St. Francis of Assisi created the staging of the Nativity Scene.
Taken from the History Site:
"That became a symbol of Christ - being triangular in shape it represents the trinity- and from there came the idea that the tress should be a symbol of Christ and new life."

My Christmas Wishes:
Wishing for Peace and Unity and Respect of Life. For all
those who have left us and for all those who can't
come home for the Holidays. Especially for our soldiers
and the military who defend us and the world. Wishing
them all heart-filled days and nights.
At this stage in time, I am praying.....for normal.
Merry Christmas, Cathrina! :) I'm all decorated, but since we don't have a mantle, the stockings go at the end of the beds. (That's what I grew up with too.) We do sugar cookies every year and a gingerbread house, and an advent calendar. This year, Gramma was so nice to make a Gramma advent calendar with little presents for my son so it will be extra exciting with not being able to visit family in this crazy year.ReplyDelete
That sounds wonderful Christine! We did ginger houses yesterday. Lots of sugary fun! Enjoy!Delete
