When I was growing up, every Christmas, without fail, my family would listen to Christmas Portrait by The Carpenters. I actually think we had it on cassette tape. It was from that tape that I began my love affair with Karen Carpenter’s voice. It was just so smooth and pitch perfect.
I really do love the Christmas season and all that goes along with it. When Thalia was born I wanted to start our own Christmas family traditions. We decided that our tradition would be to buy a Hallmark ornament for her and one for the whole family every year. Here are this year’s ornaments.
Curious George for our little monkey Amara.
Buzz and Woody for Thalia.
She also got Rapunzel.
We got a little gingerbread house for the family.
What are some of your Christmas or holiday traditions?
