Can you feel that? The holidays are here! This is my absolute favorite time of year. A time for giving, being with family, and continuing traditions that I have had ever since I was a little girl. It really starts for me when Santa ushers in the season at the end of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Then we know it is time to bring out the Christmas movies and snuggle up on the couch with hot chocolate. Look Mommy it’s Rudolph! And my favorite, Charlie Brown, who teaches us what Christmas is really all about. And I cannot forget the food. Mmmm my mouth is watering just thinking about it. The kids will tell you making sugar cookies and decorating them is the best tradition ever!
I am excited to add to our festivities this year a fun and free event a local Macy’s store is putting on. It is sure to put everyone in the mood for the holidays!
