Throughout the years, my traditions for the Christmas holiday have changed. Obviously, things like my parent’s divorce and my move across country have put a damper on what my Christmas traditions were as a child. Since I have only been in California for a couple Christmases, and this is my first one living with Jordan, I have yet to build my “traditions” here. I do, however, have a few things that I specifically associate, and celebrate, the Christmas season with.
Bing Crosby – His deep, rich voice always reminds me of Christmas. I love my Bing Crosby Holiday station on Pandora. :]
Starbuck’s Peppermint Mocha Latte – My mouth is watering now. This is my drink of choice this season. There’s something so cozy about holding a warm Peppermint Mocha in my glove-covered hands on a chilly December day!
The Lights – I am loving decorating our house with lights this year!! I sort of want to leave them all year round, but that would make them less special for the Christmas season I suppose. We have a huge palm tree in our front yard that Jordan wants to wraps with lights. He keeps talking about ‘building a harness’ for himself, as though to help him shimmy up the tree. No thanks, I like my boyfriend with no broken bones.
White Christmas – I think this movie may have been the start of my love for Bing Croby. My cousin and I would watch this movie all the time at my Grandma’s house when we were kids (as in all year round, not just at Christmas time). It will always have a special place in my heart!
She + Him Christmas Edition – I have a girl crush on Zoey Deschanel. There I said it. Not only am I in love with her new show, New Girl, but I love this album!
Aw, now I feel all warm and fuzzy! I love this time of year. Although how I celebrate my Christmases has continued to change, I always look forward to my favorite Christmas things! Do you have ongoing traditions this season?
