Merry Christmas

A very Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!  May you have a wonderful day celebrating in your own special way!  What is your favorite holiday tradition?
One of my favorite traditions started while I was in college.  Money was always extra tight but this particular year it was pretty much non-existent.  I didn’t have the ability to buy presents for everyone, but I still wanted to give.  I ended up buying a box of ornaments and painting on each of them.  Each year I have continued that tradition painting a unique theme each year and adding the date to the back.   My family and friends seem to like this tradition and I know it’s something I enjoy as well!
Being that I decided to make art my primary focus as I go into the new year, I felt that it was only fitting to celebrate by displaying the different ornaments I’ve painted over the years (yes, of course I keep one for my own each year) on my itty bitty Christmas tree this year.

How do you decorate your tree?  Do you have a favorite tradition that you follow each year (or a new one you’d like to start)?  I’d love to hear about it!
