In 1994, the first year Richard & I bought a tree together, we instituted our own tradition. After we take the tree down, Richard cuts a chunk off the bottom, and crafts an ornament based on our overall impressions of the year just passed. (We moved to Tennessee in 1997.) We now have 24 ornaments to remind us of our journey together, and every Christmas we get to revisit each year and celebrate how far we’ve come!
Do you have any holiday traditions you’d care to share?!
