Carrying on Traditions

Day 27:  a tradition I maintain

It would have to be Christmas.  Although if I were being honest, I would have to admit that Mr. Smith is the one who makes sure that all the decorations are put up every year in a timely manner.  And, of course, this means directly after Thanksgiving.  I'll admit that once all the decorations are up, I feel quite festive.  My objection lies in the sheer amount of time it takes to complete the task.  Also, the number of decorations we have to put on the tree is daunting!  And it's also quite weird that it's summer during Christmas.  It should never be hot at Christmastime.

But that said, I fully embraced sending Christmas cards with Santa in a bathing suit and surfing this past holiday season.

Another tradition during Christmas is making sure all our nieces and nephews remember who we are (since we never get to see them).  What better way to do that than with gifts?  So every year we have to start early to make sure that we can get it all done and shipped in adequate time.  Here are some photos of Christmases past ...
