Holly Jolly Holiday Traditions

I love traditions, especially at Christmas time. Today, I’m sharing three of my favorites with you. Enjoy!

Salvation Army Red Kettle

The sights and sounds of the Salvation Army Red Kettle and Bell signify it’s Christmas time!

The man on the street, the child who goes to bed hungry, the woman searching for hope, the family with no presents on Christmas morning. Too often the needs of those in my community are overlooked, and it’s my turn to make a difference and make everyone feel loved. Whether I help one person, one hundred people, or 27,167,320 people like The Salvation Army served last year, I know that my Fight for Good fundraiser will make someone’s day and life better.

With The Salvation Army, Christmas and Joy have an Army, and they #FightforGood to give hope and healing to those who need it most. This is my community, this is my campaign, and this is my contribution.

Christmas Eve Pajamas

Each and every Christmas Eve my sweet Grandma Carol gifts all of her grand kids a new pair of Christmas PJ’s, or “Grammy Jammies” so that we’re officially ready for Santa. This is the first year that my Grandma won’t be here to celebrate with us, but I am going to be her elf and be sure the tradition continues!

The Hunt for the Perfect Christmas Tree

Every year since I was a little girl my favorite part of the Holiday season has been the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree. This is no easy task and I have very specific criteria: not too tall, just round enough, room on the top for an angel, and plenty of room on the bottom for all of the presents!

What are some of your favorite Holiday traditions, both new and old? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
