Target is is kicking off their holiday campaign, #MyKindofHoliday , where they want people to share unique or special traditions that they do for the holidays. I was asked to join in and celebrate, so I am sharing with you a special tradition that we have every year!
In my family, we love traditions, some we have from growing up, or new ones that we start together. Christmas is such a special holiday, all about family, love, and memories that we will have forever from the holiday, but it is also about tradition for me.
When Anthony and I were on our own, I started the tradition of buying a special ornament for him and I each year. Anthony was so excited every year to pick out his special ornament for the tree, we had fun and looked forward to it every year. Once I met Mike, we shared the tradition with him, every year the three of us for the past 5 years, would get an ornament to put on the tree.
This year we are really excited to add another special ornament yearly to the mix, Rocco will now be getting a special ornament every year! As a family of four, we sure will have tons of ornaments now, but it is so special and fun to open the ornament box each year and see all the ornaments we have picked from the past years. We each gather our ornaments and put them on the tree, funny how time goes so fast and how old some are!
This year we picked out our special ornaments to be added to the tree the day after Thanksgiving when we put our tree up. Every year we have the tradition of putting up our tree the day after thanksgiving, we play christmas music, watch a christmas movie, and decorate.
This year we got our ornaments early, we wanted to get many options before the holiday shopping rush!
Anthony went with the bacon and eggs, SO perfect for him, the ornament was made for Anthony! He loves his bacon and eggs!
I went with a cute yoga ornament, I love my yoga and thought this ornament was so cute!
Mike went with the skull! I am sure everyone thinks this is one I would pick, but it is one Mike picked out! I do love it, it’s pretty cool!
And of course a first christmas one for Rocco, just have to fill it with a cute pic of him! <3
I can’t wait to add these special ornaments to the tree this year, traditions are great to have, and I know our boys will pass this tradition on when they have their own families one day.
Do you have a special holiday tradition?
