This Christmas has been the most unique of the 19 I've experienced. Typically, Christmas day is spent at my Grandma's house with my aunts, uncles, and cousins. It's usually a big gathering, and my Grandma is always welcoming to friends who don't have plans for the day.
I've always loved that tradition and the others we have as well. We did our big family gathering on the 23rd this year, and it was great. But today was different because it was more intimate than usual. It was just my family, my cousin, and my grandma. It was different, but it was a great day.
I love Christmas traditions, but I also love doing new things every once in a while. I can't imagine doing holidays without a big family gathering, but I love having the intimate days too. Both are great, and the past few days of Christmas celebration have brought me many warm memories for the future.
