Buffet style or formal dining? When you have a large gathering which do you prefer? Personally, I love buffet style. Guests are free to enjoy the food and serve themselves as they desire. I LOVE this time of year!! You may even hear me say, "It's the most wonderful time of the year" more than once!
Are you still full from yesterday? I hope Thanksgiving was everything you hoped and planned it to be! If you are a black Friday shopper you are probably back home, in bed and napping about now. If you are a cyber black Friday shopper, you probably are still in your pajamas sipping some hot cocoa or egg nog. In the past I have gone out when I wake up and the great deals are all but gone. And that is fine. We are blessed and don't need much. It's just fun to be out and about with humanity.
This is such a magical time of year! Filled with family, friends and traditions. At one point we began to feel overwhelmed with "traditions". We gathered the immediate family and discussed what traditions should stay and which ones could go. It was wonderful!! Some of the things I thought the kids would miss, they were agreeable to letting go of. In the end, the traditions that we have are the ones that are of meaning to our family.
What traditions do you have? What could you let go of? Are there things you would like to add? Sit down with your family and discuss it. You just might be surprised!
