Christmas Dreams, Memories and Traditions
Honoring the Traditions and History
Christmases Past

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;

Xhristmas treeAh, the opening lines of Clement C. Moore's 1823 Christmas classic, "A Visit from St. Nicholas"  or better known today as " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas". This poem, probably one of the most well known poems in the world today, brings to mind endless traditions and dreams and memories, Santa and snow, reindeer and gifts, and the joys of Christmas past and present.

Christmas day may only come but once a year but the memories and the traditions you create during that special holiday season will live on for years to come!

What Christmas memories or traditions live in your heart?

Perhaps gathering together and creating your own special Christmas decorations to hang in your home, on your tree, to share with friends and family... do you remember each year taking out those special home made decorations and being taken back to the time you made them and feeling that same special joy and pleasure?

Maybe enjoying Christmas tales and stories as a family, year after year, the same stories becoming more special with each retelling. Passing those special stories down and making a Cookies and Milktradition is something that is beyond compare.

How about creating mouthwatering Christmas treats and goodies? The scents of vanilla and cinnamon and ginger filling your home, Christmas cookies cooling on wire racks... if you're anything like me, bet you've sampled a few of those yourself! Nothing like fresh home made cookies; making them, eating them and sharing them especially when it becomes a family project.

Yes, Christmas is a time for creating memories and traditions and sharing those.
