We love the holidays and our holiday traditions. Yet there have been times in the past when following one of our favorite traditions just didn't work out.
When our living room and dining room took on the role of our kitchen while it was put back together after the fire a few years ago, we made the decision to not decorate a tree or to haul out all the Christmas decorations. We put out a few special items like our creche, our three-tiered wooden Christmas candle pyramid, and Odie. We decorated a wreath with some of our favorite ornaments.
Deciding on which traditions to celebrate in your marriage is a continual process. As your lives change, so may your traditions that you celebrate on the holidays and during life-cycle celebrations.
Here are tradition suggestions as well as other tips on making traditions meaningful for both you and your spouse.
