Although I enjoy strolling the streets, peeking into local shops to see what’s new for the Christmas season, it’s the “Home” activities I love the most. Gathering of family & friends reliving holiday traditions that have been passed on year to year.
My most favorite tradition that has been with my family for generations, is touring the area for the best decorated home. I remember Mom & Dad loading our family & friends in the old station wagon, thermoses filled with hot cocoa along with a bag of mini marshmallows and a plate of homemade sugar cookies. We’d drive around slowly through every street of our community while singing Christmas carols at the top of our lungs. Eeew’s and Awww’s followed by squeals when an exceptionally sparkly home was spotted. Wow, just writing this floods my heart with joys from Christmas’s past.
Keeping the spirit alive, we recently toured our area looking for homes decorated for the holidays, needless to say we weren’t disappointed. There were so many beautiful homes, I thought I’d share a few with you, after all isn’t that what Christmas is all about?
The warmest of Holiday wishes from my family to yours, Merry Christmas!
