Serendipity Experience 78 : Share Christmas Traditions2:48 PM
Despite living in a country that celebrates Christmas in Summer our family always has a traditional Hot Christmas Dinner complete with Roast Turkey, Yorkshire Pudding, Peaches with Cranberry Sauce and Plum Pudding with Brandy Sauce. To me it wouldn't be Christmas if we didn't celebrate in this way!
We always have Christmas Crackers on our table. We sit around the table joining each of our crackers and break them at the same time. We then put on our silly hats and share the jokes inside. Until I read a recent blog by Sherry at The Heart of Home I thought this was a universal tradition!!!
We set aside the week before Christmas to make our Mince Pies, Snowflake cookies and of course our Reindeer Poo!
The Christmas Tradition which has changed the most for us is Christmas Card giving. We used to love going to the mailbox each day to collect our cards and would string them across the garland. Of course like everyone else we are now resorting to sending e-cards!
I also couldn't imagine Christmas without the obligatory bowl of nuts to crack!...Although with the increase of nut allergies around, perhaps this is the next tradition that will disappear!!! Would love to hear about your Christmas Traditions!
With love and good cheer from our house to yours, Merry Christmas!
