We have family, local, global, and even extra-terrestrial holiday celebrations in our American home.
- Aliens and Legos visiting our Nativity scene? All are welcome.
- Hannukah Harry? We love him.
- Tree ornaments from Mexico and India? Passport not required.
- Mr. Hanky? He is a sure-fire hit in our home. We cackle with laughter over this Christmas poo.
- American classic movies: Christmas Vacation? Elf? A Christmas Story? Check. Check. Check.
- Mexican wedding cookies? Yep, I make ’em.
- Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker? Going.
- Visiting Santa Claus at the mall? On our list.
- Mormon Tabernacle Choir TV special? Celtic Christmas TV special? Two of my favorites.
- Paper dreidels brought home from school? Game on.
- Gingerbread house toppling over with too many gumdrops? Every year.
- Winter solstice? We celebrate that too.
- Advent calendar counting down the days of Christmas? It’s 11 days until Christmas, y’all.
In a previous post I wrote about Why Can’t We All Get Along (for the Holidays). It’s your choice. Mix it up. Or not.
