…going ape with holiday posts and shenanigans is not only allowed, but encouraged! <3
…answering the phone saying “Buddy the Elf, What’s your favorite color!?” is less creepy than when I say it in the middle of July.
…candy canes are now officially a food group! No? Well excuse me while I pout.
and for moi, it also means that I get to partake in one of my absolute favorite holiday traditions:
Three years ago Paul and I started a fun little tradition that will some day result in a tree full of woodland animals! I love it so! Since I call P Bear and he calls me Bird [or, more often than not, silly bird] we took the nicknames to the tree! Each year we pick out each other’s ornament and exchange it while we set up our tree. Super cute right? It’s a tad less cute when I reveal that I have to physically drive my husband to a store and tell him to come back when he’s found my bird. One of these years he’ll remember <3
Just not this one.
We try to stick to unbreakable ornaments in hope that we’ll be able to keep them around forever, though a few porcelain birds have snuck in the rotation and I bubble wrap those chirpers within an inch of their life each year. They take up a lot of room in our Christmas box with their 2 feet of padding but considering how clumsy I am, it’s a necessary precaution! Eventually we’ll have a little ankle biter to partake in the fun and I cannot. flipping. wait! I imagine we’ll have to decorate two trees eventually as the furry and feathered creatures runneth over.
What about you? Whats your favorite holiday tradition? Any holiday! Spill it!
