Christmas traditions are passed down through families. Sometimes they change with time, evolving into something different than the original, but uniquely meaningful to the family they serve. Traditions also blend together, melding into new traditions when couples marry and start homes of their own. Some traditions are carried on exactly as remembered, and other are discarded. Finding the joy of the Christmas season requires that the traditions serve us rather than us becoming slaves to them. Sometimes a tradition is celebrated sporadically, maybe not every season, but during key times when family visits or the celebration is at home rather than at someone else's house. What are traditions that you cherish in your family?
