10th and 11th Days of Christmas

On the 10th day of Christmas my true love gave to me…7 fish dinner on Christmas eve. My parents have done this tradition for as long as I can remember. We used to go to my dad’s best friend’s house for dinner for many many years but have since continued at my parents house and…

8th and 9th Days of Christmas

On the 8th day of Christmas my true love gave to me…fireplaces and mantles. These made my list, even though I don’t have either, because they are beautiful and seemingly fun to decorate.

I really love having the families come…
