A Christmas Story
Laura’s (and Mari’s) Blog Entry
Now that we’ve gotten past Mari’s Christmas show, Mari’s bout of the plague, and a little music event we hosted, the Smiths are ready to celebrate Christmas!
We have some family traditions that we look forward to each holiday season. They remind us that we’re not just celebrating Giftmas (thanks, Holly!) but that we need to recalibrate, get off the internet, and spend some time together as a family. Most importantly we start the new year focused on a spiritual level.
One of our traditions is that we read Christmas-themed stories every evening (or most evenings, anyway.) It’s fun to hear the same stories each year, and add new books to the collection. Last year Mari had a school project where she got to write her version of the Christmas story. Now we have her special book to read.
For anyone who might have a similar tradition, my super-techy husband turned the handmade book into a PDF. I’m pretty sure the process involved some magical elves.
