One of Our Traditions

Typically I would say I am very nontraditional. I just don't see the reason to do something again because you have done it at the same time the same way a thousand times before. On the same token I appreciate that other people are enamored in their cyclical events. I enjoy watching them, but I could take it or leave it. However, during Christmas traditional things seem to bubble up all over the place and I embrace them for whatever reason. Perhaps because it focuses my attention on reflection. It's a good time of year for that, right?

From what I understand our tradition is very common around this time of year. For me this is a continuation of a tradition my mother started with me and my brothers. That woman loves tradition. I think I love this tradition because she did when we were kids and I have continued giving a new ornament to each member of my little clan every year.

...because my man loves a good Scotch.

...because my little man knows his way around a good monster drawing.

...because my little femme enjoys being a wild thing.

...because Urban Outfitters did not know who they were dealing with when they gave Hubble bad info.

And there you have it. Four new additions to our tree. One tradition carried over and out. And to all a good night.

P.S. - I will be making everyone's ornament next year. I mean, you would think I would have been doing that all along. Mice and men, ya know?
