This year, since we've melded our families together and started our own family, my lovergirl and I have come up with some new traditions.
My favorite one is the Christmas Tree. Both of us hate a lot of things about Christmas (mostly the societal/business things that commercialize everything), but one of the things that we hate A LOT is the killing of trees and even the poison that comes from the plastic, fake trees--did you know that fake trees hurt the environment more than cutting down a live tree? True facts.
I still love having a Christmas tree with decorations and presents underneath, so we came up with the awesome idea of buying a potted tree. When the weather warms up a little then we'll plant the tree and instead of taking from the earth, we will give her a gift. This year we made our own stockings and I even turned our air conditioner into a fireplace!
Another tradition is to watch Home Alone. Because, nothing says "Christmas" quite like this:
