Every family has its own traditions when it comes to celebrating festivals. Growing up, our family tradition was to put a christmas tree, lighting outside our home, bake fruit cake with mom, make lot of sweets with the entire family in the kitchen
making a mess helping out mom. It was a fun, bonding time for us as a family with all our faces smudged with flour, cracking jokes, staying up late to finish what we started.
Now that I have my own little family unit , we are making our own traditions that we can pass onto our kids. We have tried to combine both our family's traditions and come up with our very own. It is going to be cakes and cookies for us. There is so much fun decorating christmas cookies and baking a traditional christmas cake. We have officially decided that this is exactly what we want to do as 'our' very own family tradition :D And of course, opening the christmas presents under the tree in our PJ's on christmas morning:)
Last year, we could not do this because we were in India and the last thing we wanted was to tell our parents that we are all grown-up and we want to set our traditions! To us, we are still their babies :p
So, this year, we kick started 'our' family tradition. Here's a lil peek :)
Merry Christmas to all my lovely Blogger friends and a Happy New Year! But I am pretty sure I will blog before New year's :)
