Christmas has always been my favorite season. I love the festivity, the spirit of giving, the surprises, and the way most everyone is in a cheerful spirit. The traditions our family have are numerous – Crafting, baking, and shopping. I love decorating the tree on the first of December, but one of my favorite traditions happens on the eve of Christmas.
After an early dinner we bake our cookies for Santa and then pile in the car to drive through the streets of our little town. Christmas music can be heard pumping through the streets and houses abound with twinkling Christmas Lights. I love the really over the top houses and Maddilyn loves anything with blow up characters.
Then we head home for some egg nog, watch a Nightmare Before Christmas and lastly a reading of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. It was a tradition we started Maddilyn’s first Christmas and one I’m looking forward to again this year – especially the Christmas Lights.
Each year, houses have added something new here or there, although they’re really no competition for these 5 Amazingly Over The Top Christmas Light Displays I found online:
My house doesn’t even compare, does yours?!?
