Her: What traditions?
Me: We have ham and potatoes for Christmas dinner.
Her: (Raised eyes, apparently food does not make a tradition. It is just what you eat on Christmas.)
Me: (Looking at the tree) We wrap our presents in fabric every year.
Her: That is just because you don't want to buy wrapping paper.
Me: Noooo. Reduce, reuse, recycle.
Her: O. K. (if you say so, mom, tone of voice)
Her: Oh, yeah...we do.
Me: And we make treats to bring to people.

She wasn't convinced, but traditions don't have to be big deals. Just spending time with family can be the best tradition. That's my story and I'm sticking to it! :)
I hope you all had a great Christmas! Stay safe and warm this holiday season!
