My wife and I always enjoy the holidays, but at times it seems like there’s something lacking. I suppose we get caught up in the commercialization of the holidays like many other people, but I think it goes beyond that. When it’s just the two of us it can be a bit on the boring side and I think by adding another member to our family will change that. I’m not talking about our boy being an entertainment vessel but someone that we can dote on and I suppose spoil.
I’ve already been through the Toys R’ Us Lego section and can see Lego’s in the future (loved Legos when I was a kid). But again it’s more than the commercialization. Both of us have holiday memories that we’ve talked about and how it will be with our baby boy. I remember at Easter, we’d have the usual egg hunt, but what I remember more than anything was the blowing bubbles we got and how the weather was. It was usually a nice spring day (we woke up to a skiff of snow this morning!).
Since this is a holiday I’ll keep it fairly short.
What holiday traditions do you remember as a kid and what new one’s have you created with your children?
