When I was younger, Christmas being a western holiday, was never really a big deal. We had a family dinner, with a turkey but the sides included rice and noodles and other Chinese dishes. We put up a tree, but that was almost entirely my doing.
Now that I have my own family, I want to make our own family traditions. We got a head start this weekend by putting together a Gingerbread house, which for all of us (K, hubby and myself) was our first ever experience at this, making it a little extra special.
The gingerbread itself was store-bought, but for our first time, we wanted something easy. Maybe next year I might try making our own. I love gingerbread cookies, and have made these in the past, but an entire house… that seemed a little more daunting.
I’m inspired, however, by some of these wonderful houses in the Gingerbread House Showcase Flickr pool.
What are some of your family’s holiday traditions?
