MERRY CHRISTMAS! That's right ladies and gents! It's officially Christmas today and I am so excited it's here. I get to do... nothing! Haha! Okay.

In my previous posts I've discussed traditions that existed in my family when I was younger and still lived with my parents. There weren't a lot of them.

That One Thing While perusing the vast realms of the interwebs, I found many people offering up what one thing they needed for Christmas to be complete in their eyes. For me this was an interesting concept. I've never thought of one thing that was required for Christmas to be complete. I mean, Christmas isn't… Continue reading On the 21st day of Christmas…

Gingerbread House I've never been one to bake, or cook, or... well any of that stuff! :p Whenever it came to holiday cookies, holiday desserts, holiday meals, or anything food related, I stayed away...

Decorations! WHEE! I know, I know. More decorations? YES! This is America! We don't stop decorating until every INCH of the house is covered in glitter, lights, garland, ornaments, figurines, etc, etc, etc. And when I say every inch, I mean every inch!
