Wishing You All the Merriest of PINK SATURDAYS.....

Friday, December 18, 2009

Welcome to our 3rd "Christmas themed" PINK SATURDAY!.....This week our hostess, Beverly at "How Sweet The Sound" has asked us to share one of our Christmas traditions. I think we all have many traditions that we learned as children & have now carried with us when creating our own families.....In our case, the traditions are rather small, but still special.....For example, no stocking has ever been properly filled without including one perfect "tangerine" ( leaves attached, if possible!).... as well as a tiny gold mesh bag filled with chocolate coins!....Santa made sure we had both every single year, & he has continued this tradition with our children & grandchild too.
Another tradition,... is like many of you, we always open one gift on Christmas Eve, that gift being our new Christmas "nighties"!!...Some years home-sewn & other years store bought, but none-the-less, always special!
So as in each year before & I assume for each Christmas from now on, we will continue these "tiny traditions". Precious "connections to the past,...to the present & the future"......Merry Christmas!......Heidi XO

These "tiny traditions" are what MAKE Christmas, and the ones people will long remember. My post this week is my mother's Lethal Sherry Trifle recipe (it has an awful lot of sherry in it) which we have had every single year since I was 15 (I'm 57 now!) and although she died nearly 30 years ago, I always think of her when I make it, and toast her with the first spoonful.

Have a very Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday! I am seeing a common tradition in the opening of new PJ's on Christmas Eve. I wonder where that started?

I love the stockings memories too, ours were always filled with the most magical treasures!

Merry Christmas!

HeidI, I love this! In fact I like the new nightie idea...and intend to start it with my daughter! What a great idea. Hahaha...I liked your tangerine idea too. Several years we gave our kids an apple, banana and a nickel! Plus all their other goodies! Little traditions are always wonderful~
have a blessed Christmas,
Debbie

Wonderful Christmas memories. I remember when my sister and I were young getting matching pajamas - and most years mom had a set to match ours.

Happy Pink Saturday and Merry Christmas!

Your traditions are lovely... As children, we were always allowed to open one gift and yes, it was pajama's. I always suspected it was for the purpose of looking nice for pictures in the morning!! Hand sewn...wonderful!!

Happy holidays, Heidi!!

Happy Pink Saturday and wishes for a Merry Christmas for you and your family, Heidi.

My son always gets a bag of chocolate coins in his Christmas stocking, too.

It is these special little traditions that we all look forward to every year. I never realized how important it was until my oldest daughter (27) was horrified to think that I was going to skip getting them all pajamas this year. It is the little things that matter the most. Happy Pink Saturday and Merry Christmas.

Heidi, what a sweet tradition. I always received fruit and nuts from Santa in my childhood stocking. The tradition of new Christmas jammies is great! Thanks for sharing this little peek into your Christmas traditions. Our stockings are a big part of our Christmas traditions. Hope you have time to stop by for a visit. ~ Happy Pink Holidays! ~ Sarah
