We asked our friends about which holiday tradition they cherish the most PLUS what song is their current holiday jam. Read what they shared!
A Lobster Tale
A holiday tradition that my husband and I adopted, when we made the move from California to Massachusetts, was to top our family’s Christmas tree with a lobster; not a real one, of course, but a soft, plush hat that I purchased in Boston before we were married. The tradition continues eighteen years and three kids later; a true “New England” Christmas! Believe it or not, I am listening to an abundance of Michael Jackson this holiday season, as my thirteen year old is obsessed with mastering the moonwalk; I have: “Billie Jean, “Beat It,” “Thriller,” and “Smooth Criminal” incessantly looping on Spotify this holiday season. ❤️Amy
A Mama’s Heart
My favorite tradition is simply when I take out all the Christmas decorations. My mom passed away 8 years ago and opening up all the boxes of my childhood memories feels like my mom is right there with me. She grew up with the holidays being a painful season for her. I feel so grateful to her for choosing joy around the holidays during my childhood. My current jam is hands down anything Amy Grant Christmas. Very nostalgic for me. ❤️Sarah
