"Share Your Favorite Holiday Tradition or Recipe"
Hosted by: Obsession with Books
Directions: Share your favorite holiday tradition or recipe!
My family doesn't really have any traditions. We're all kind of spread out all over the place so I'm usually not home with them because I'm usually out living on my own in a different state or something. One thing I always do though is put up the Christmas tree as soon as Halloween is over! I'm not a fan of Thanksgiving so I skip that holiday!!
