Something I learned from FLYlady several years back.
“Ever feel like you just want to spend the holidays with your own family, in your own home, etc? Its not about that one day. Celebrate with your family whenever you get the chance.” – Kelly
Based on that, and our home at the time (much closer to Gramma’s house), we opted to celebrate Thanksgiving on Black Friday, and Christmas on Christmas Eve. It worked for us! The kids had a great time, and no one seemed to notice that it wasn’t “the day” we were supposed to be celebrating.
From 2002 until now, our traditions and celebrations were built around making sure we could get to Gramma & Grampa’s house by a certain time on a certain day. This year, things have changed. We moved a bit further away & Grampa passed away. Therefore, it’s time to change our traditions again. And change is good, no matter how much I hate it.
