Maybe I am just getting older and more cynical in my old age but Christmas seems to be getting more and more commercial. I probably moan about it each year but this year it seems even more so. In a time when times are getting tougher and the pressure to produce yet another award winning Christmas I want to try something new, or rather old. I want my kids to look back and not just remember the presents but the traditions. I want to give them traditions that they can pass on and enjoy with their children.
I only have one tradition that I have inherited from my mum and that’s making those orange and clove things. You know where you sit all evening pushing cloves into an orange and then have sore fingers for a week. Each year my daughter and I endure the challenge and then watch it go mouldy but least it’s a tradition.
So I want to know your traditions. What traditions you do, wish you did or use to do?
