Think About It Thursday – Christmas Traditions

Today’s Topic: What are your Christmas traditions?

Presents under the treeBefore we moved to New Mexico, we used to go to a local theater company on Christmas eve for their Christmas show. We munched on popcorn, ate pizza, fried zucchini, and salads. And during intermission, we have ice creams to celebrate Tim’s birthday and our anniversary.

Now that we’re in a new area for the holidays, we’ve been trying out new traditions. We usually hit the neighboring historical town for it’s Christmas festival. All of the stores put on a wonderful display with carolers, last minute gift ideas and, of course, lots of hot chocolate. This year we’ll be sending Grandma and the boys to the festival without us so we can setup the boys’ big gift. I want it fully ready to be played Christmas morning as I’m sure it’ll get a ton of use everyday for a while.

Next week’s topic: How are you planning to ring in the new year?

We got them a Wii, loads of games, and a couple different controllers. But the big part we’ll be setting up is the external hard drive to hold their games so they can’t damage the discs and a new to them gaming area. They know the gaming area is coming as we’ve been clearing out the space and moving things around the house in preparation. I plan to reuse things around the house to setup their gaming area unless I can find a small entertainment center in our price range.
