Decorating the Christmas tree to Elvis Presley holiday music is a childhood memory of mine and still an on-going tradition. When my husband and I first started dating we created the tradition that the only ornaments on our tree would be from our travels. Decorating the tree has become a celebration of our life commemorating the places we have traveled as a couple and as a family.

Every Christmas and Hanukkah, with this being the fourth year, I hostess a holiday cookie decorating playdate for my children and some of their friends. I premake the cookie dough and then have the children cut and decorate their own cookies.
Some show restraint with sprinkles...
Others, not so much...
Our traditions are one of the elements that make a house a home. What are some of your holiday traditions?
