Christmas is the yummiest time of the year. I really love traditions that involve food. But I love Christmas in general. I always have. I was the one that always hung the stockings by the chimney with care (well, more like up on a nail on the wall with care). I even wrapped my own christmas presents. My parents just put my presents in big boxes. There is one tradition that my parents had that I still do today.
We made chili on Christmas Eve.
Yea, I know it seems like a silly tradition. But it was something I did look foward to at Christmas time. It would cook all day ( my mom always made it from scratch…i cheat…mine is from a can…but it is chili). She would make extra spicey for her and my dad and would make a whole other separate pot for me and my brother. When my brother got a girlfriend that didn’t eat chili, I thought she was going to pass out. But fear not. My mom found a white chicken chili recipe for her…and it is delish. But she will not give it to me….dang her…dang her to heck. I really love this tradition and I wanted to share it.
What kind of traditions do you and your family do? What traditions did you do as a child? What do you think would make a fantastic tradition?
