    I carried on the tradition of making my moms white fruit cake yesterday. I pray the church still has Christmas Eve candle light service so we can attend and that mom would be well enough to go. Blessings

    Our Christmas will be quite quiet this year. All our regular parties have been canceled, so we’re going to enjoy being together as a family. Cozy nights with Christmas lights and cookies!

    I love those covers! We recently went out to look at Christmas lights and that’s really the only thing we do yearly.

    I have a tradition for my grandkids. I hand make ornaments for each of them. This year I am making small gnomes. Our ladies craft group at church made them last year. We were ahead of the trend.
    Our tradition of a Christmas Eve candlelight service may not happen this year.

    I will probably help my mom do some baking as best as we can. I always wear a mask around her because of risk factors so it might not be as much as usual years.

    My daughter and I have officially started to listen to Christmas music which is her favorite part of the season. I plan to reinstate an older tradition of reading Christmas stories to her, and I will help her make a Christmas gift for he grandma.

    We have always baked as a family. This year, we will not be able to do so with my Mom now in a hospital and then being moved to a rehab facility. My husband and I will do some baking, but on a smaller scale.

    Both of these books looks like fantastic reads. Would love to read and review books in print format. I read one of your other books and it was fantastic.
    Some traditions I will be planning to add in my celebrations this are: celebrating Jesus’ Birthday and being joyous about it, Making Christmas cookies with Mom and Dad and a tradition I started and that was their Christmas gifts from Omaha Steaks, Other traditions I plan to celebrate this is singing Happy Birthday to Jesus for His Birthday. Also, my favorite treat is pretty much almost anything considered junk food.
    Thanks for chance to win.
    Hope I Win.

    Now that the boys are getting older, we really like the idea of going on a major vacation every year during Christmas

    We aren’t celebrating any of our usual traditions as some family members have been exposed to the virus and we are trying to protect our elderly members.
