Merry Christmas Eve people! This is it, the big dance, the pinnacle of holiday tradition and family time. With that in mind, I decided to go SUPER literal with this Christmas holiday post – it doesn’t get much more festive than this sweatshirt with Mr. Claus emblazoned on the chest. In the holiday build up this year, I’ve been thinking about what my favorite parts of this season are. And for me, the answer is easily family: being near family and dear friends who have become family. But beyond that, what I love about the holiday season is tradition. I love that every family and culture has a different take on traditions and that they bring people together.
Over the next 48 hours I will be taking on many of my favorite traditions head first: my brother in law and I will be baking copious amounts of holiday cookies, my brother will be setting up our Christmas village (which he is a PRO at – while I admire/supervise), my dad will drag me out to do some super last minute Christmas shopping after we take on an early morning spin class, my mom and I will be doing a little bit of everything (baking, cooking, decorating) but one thing we will for sure be doing is staying up late laughing while wrapping gifts, addressing Christmas cards and watching the ultimate Christmas movie lineup. No matter the tradition, I’m going to soak in this time with my people.
Merry Christmas you filthy animals!
