Our Christmas Traditions
By Gaby Smith
Anyone who has heard me talk on the radio, has heard that Advent and Christmas are my favorite seasons of the Church year! I love the vibe, the music and the activities.
Everything about this time of the year is magical. I love making it magical for my son.
We have formed our own Christmas traditions that we look forward to every year.
The first, is putting up the Christmas tree and Advent wreath together while listening to Christmas music. I love explaining to him the importance of these two symbols in our house during this season.
Another favorite tradition is baking Christmas cookies for everyone at the Catholic Community Radio studio. I help him measure sugar, vanilla extract and he mixes it all together. This may be a three-hour process, but it’s one of our favorites.
We also enjoy our favorite Christmas movies during the year. My parents always made this time of the year fun and enjoyable. I want to instill this joy to my son and his future family as well.
