Smart Ideas: Lighting Revisited


This is My Typical Way of Spending the Holidays.

The definition of holidays is different to everyone and how it is celebrated is also different. No matter how different are holidays maybe there are certain things that we have in common. The similar characteristics that we share during holidays involve family, food, and tradition. Families spend most of their times together during the holiday season. When it comes to food and tradition we find ourselves doing the same recipes and doing the same things during holidays. We love the routine that is accompanied with thanksgiving and Christmas vacation. Over the holidays we maintain the tradition of the tastes, smells, and decoration. Another interesting aspect of holidays is the fact that the Thanksgiving parade is washed in our pajamas in dinner served at the same time to allow for food to digest slowly. Majority of people went through the same tradition getting childhood and continue going through the same tradition in their late ages.

During the festive season most individuals enjoy having the pumpkin spice candle burning. This is normally accompanied with the old fashioned cinnamon. To a majority of us we maintain the same tradition in terms of decoration that happened with our mothers and we pass it on to our children. The primary event starts on Christmas Eve. Couple of people decides to do a number of recipes during this time. While others do the cooking the rest do snacks throughout during Christmas Eve.

Some of the activities that are involved during this festive season include spreading the reindeer food outside. This is an activity that has been passed on from generation to generation came from my mother to me and now am passing it on to my children. This activity was followed by a story from my mother about the reindeer. In our days we were able to open a single gift during Christmas Eve. This enabled us to reduce the anxiety that was accompanied with opening presents on Christmas day.

Christmas morning is the long-awaited day but people wait for during the festive season. During this time my mum prepares a special breakfast for us and is served while we are in our pajamas. The day is divided into the opening of presents and watching of Christmas stories. The fact that my sister in law is a great cook we end up having dinner on Christmas day at my brother’s house. Year in year out the menu is normally similar with a few adjustments. The day is finished with peppermint tea while we gather together as we compare and enjoy opening our gifts. This is simply how I normally spend my holidays with the same routine and the same tradition.
