Well, it's Friendly Friday and you know what that means....You get to win a prize!!!!!
As I said in my last post...Tradition is a word that seems to pop up a lot at this time of the year. We talked about traditional foods and recipes that our family looks forward to each year. But there are other types of traditions as well.
Our family has a big party every year and we invite all of our friends and family to come but to get in you have to bring a toy for the Toy's For Tot's drive.It is something very dear to my heart.
We take our children and grandchildren to see the lights at Temple Square.
And for pie and hot chocolate afterwards at the local Village Inn.
Traditions can be something you just started and plan to continue each year or something that has been passed down for generations. Different cultures have different Holiday traditions.
I know a friend of mine who is German and they hide an ornament that looks like a pickle some place on the tree and the first person to find it wins a prize.
Kissing under the mistletoe is a very old tradition. I was going to research it and find out it's roots but hey it's the week before Christmas and who has that kind of time....LOL
There have been songs and poems written about it. Relationships have started with that first sweet kiss under the mistletoe. Arguments forgotten, and families started all because of this wonderful thing called mistletoe.
OK, I did say you could win something right? So here it is....a beautiful Mistletoe Kissing Crystal.
Hang it up year after year and let the smooching begin. Just share with me some of your family traditions and one....awww....it's Christmas...make it TWO lucky people will win one of their very own!!
Remember...you can't win if you don't play!! You just have to be a follower or become one and leave me a message about your family traditions!!
