in general i’m not much for tradition. i mean i do believe it’s a wonderful thing, but it’s just not something i practice much. since we don’t have kids or family in the area, many holidays have been an excuse to travel or perhaps a chance to see friends or, in some cases, pretty much of a “non-event.”
the same does not apply to christmas eve however! it wasn’t exactly intentional, but we have established some traditions that have taken hold and prompted us to turn down many enticing invitations over the years in favor of our own little celebration. it’s something we both look forward to with great anticipation.

and while i’m not going to give away all of our secrets, i am giving you a few hints here with my pictures. every year we enjoy this so much that i think we should establish some other traditions, but alas, for whatever reason, it doesn’t seem to happen. hope you are establishing some of your own traditions!!
