My neighbor grew up in Denmark, and moved around the world, eventually ending up in New York City because of her husband’s job. Every summer and Christmas break, she closes the apartment and visits with her siblings, with whom she is close. I love hearing the stories of how they spend time together, my favorite of which is her Christmas tradition. Each year, the family makes a journal entry into their Christmas Family Journal, which holds precious information such as who was in attendance, what they did, what the weather was like, and any other special moments. As the years have passed, they refer to this journal to see what previous Christmases were like.
Once the idea was solidified, I searched several paper and craft stores to find the perfect journal. I found one that is ivory with intertwined gold wedding bands on the cover. It is meant to be a guest book, but we thought it a good fit for our own Wedding Anniversary Journal. We just made our first entries!
Now it’s your turn. Share with the Second Tuesday community what some of your favorite traditions/rituals are. I’d love to hear from you!
