We're Keeping (and Making) Our Own Traditions
We'll miss inviting our family members and friends over for our annual Christmas Cookie Day and sharing meals during the various Christmas dinners we attend on both sides of our family. But we have reminded ourselves that Christmas isn't canceled and have upheld as many traditions as possible while isolating at home. We decorated the tree as a family, made the cookies we look forward to each year, and have had our favorite holiday movies playing on repeat.
In place of some of our usual social traditions, we've also been looking to create new traditions, including going out for drives to look at Christmas lights and making salt-dough ornaments out of our little guy's handprints.
