Christmas Traditions

Over the years, I have observed many Christmas traditions. These include sending Christmas cards, singing in Christmas concerts, Christmas caroling, shopping, decorating, wrapping gifts, listening to Christmas carols on the record player — and now on the CD player (I don't have an ipod), driving around in the evening to look at the Christmas lights, watching Christmas-related movies, reading the Christmas story in the Bible, reading Christmas books, and baking Christmas cookies and candies. There are others, too. Here are some photos of some traditions I observed this year:

Baked sugar cookies ready to be frosted

Frosted cookies

Sarah, Aurelia, and Sarah's mom, Barb, at the Holidazzle Parade

L to R: Pam, Bonnie, and Judy at our Christmas caroling event

Paul and Ray. Several of our choir members caroled at Ray and Nancy's home as a surprise.

In the center of the photo is the Swedish Almond Cake I made for our knitting club Swedish smörgåsbord. We had many delicious Swedish dishes and desserts.

Yum! We (I) ate all of our sugar cookies, so I'm looking forward to having a couple (all) of yours!
