Mr. KK and I are finally out of the shuttleing between families and doing whatever tradition of the house is. We're trying to come up with our own. The only one we've got so far is buying a new ornament every year that represent the year. This year is a "First Christmas in our new house" ornament because symbolism is too much for me this year. The other two were a bit more clever: Two "love" birds our first year and a beaver for a second as we "build" our home. Barf, I know.
For about a bajillion years my parents and I would "spontaneously decided to go out for lunch on Christmas Eve which has evolved into "spontaneously going out for Chinese food for lunch. Also, on Christmas Eve my dad reads the story of Christmas from our giant family bible. This year I'll be adding reading The Night Before Christmas to Parker. I'm sure more traditions will blossom this year as we figure out what we want to do with the baby. As for me personally, I always have to watch certain movies during the Christmas season: Elf, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Love Actually, Scrooged, & A Christmas Story - though no one else wants to watch that last one when it's on TBS so I may have to get my own copy so I can watch it when I want to.
