I am so excited because we are entering such a fun time of year! Jonathan has the day off today so we plan to go Christmas tree shopping and then hang our stockings. As a newly married couple, we get the opportunity to make a lot of new Christmas traditions together, and it is so much fun!
Last year we decided to only exchange stockings between the two of us. I had such a great time picking out special, meaningful gifts for him (and it is amazing how much you can actually stuff into a stocking!). Another one of our favorite traditions is going to New York City in early December for a fun, winter getaway. Some of the things we like to do while we are there are go Christmas shopping, see all the amazing Christmas decorations and ice skate in Central Park with hot cocoa. But, this year we decided to do something a little different since we far away from home. We decided to fly to Spokane to see our friends, stay in a hotel downtown and experience the wonderfulness of a Spokane Christmas since we would otherwise miss out. I think this was a good choose even though we LOVE New York. And, there is always next year!
What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions?
