Have your Christmas traditions changed over the years? I know that Covid changed our traditions. Church on Christmas Eve, Shiny Brite tree, family dinners.
Now my favorite tradition is watching the excitement of our Great Grandchilden at Christmas. I am mostly all about the simple things now...money as gifts, easy meals instead of days cooking, time to just be, handmade Christmas cards.
Far Guy wood carved all the Christmas ornaments this year. He did a great job! They are beautiful! I finished painting them a few weeks ago. Yesterday I got together all my boxes, tins and bags. I got most of them ready to deliver or put into mailers. I still need a few more boxes. So it is a work in progress.
The ornaments are a tradition that we began in 1994. We started it so when our daughters and nieces and nephews had a tree of their own they would have ornaments from their childhood.
I could not wood carve this year, my hands were just too painful. I was okay painting the ornaments.
We chose the design together and Far Guy carved outside on days when the weather was nice.
We would like to give away a few ornaments. Please leave your answer to this question to enter the drawing. "What is your favorite Christmas Tradition? " We will mail to those in the United States. I will draw some names on Sunday evening and let you know who won on Mondays blog.
