A new tradition this Christmas

Christmas is a festival we do not celebrate but who said we cannot? So, this year I started a small tradition at home.

Do you want to know what’s that?

  • A little tree with lights signifying hope for better days ahead. 
  • A cake baked at home with love for loved ones. Please come home and have a slice of whole wheat pound cake. 
  • Little gifts for my family of friends. 

And here’s is sneak peak into my home from this season.

A new tradition.. 

I am excited about this and hoping that I can make more memories and spread cheer. What are you doing differently this holiday season?

    Hope you have spread more happiness this Christmas and had a wonderful start to this year. Good luck with your new traditions at home.

  2. Since a few christmases, I had started doing the Secret Santa bit with various online groups and last year played it with my own bookclub and I invited them all for a lunch to my place where i plied them with plenty of mulled wine and a boozy cake.
    This year I pretty much did the same thing but added a tree to my home decor….
    I am looking forward to continuing this tradition every year – wish yours stays happy and blessed too
    Wish you a very happy new year Parul!!

    This was the first Christmas ever that we really didn’t do much as a family (thanks to illness and finances). I made a big breakfast, and we had a nice roast for dinner, but the rest of the time we just hung out and relaxed. Oh, and had a family movie night (the kids picked a scary movie called Lights Out – LOL).

    I love your book tree! Here’s to creating new and wonderful traditions!

    Thank you for sending me this pictures on Christmas morning. It really did make my day.

    Next year, I’m coming to get that cake.

    A book tree! That is a tree I can get behind 🙂

    We don’t celebrate holidays this season, but it’s always nice to see other people celebrating theirs and to get a break to boot.

    A beautiful tradition that’ll warm up hearts and spread cheer (through memories and books) that’ll last for years.
    We baked a cake and visited friends. Nothing very festive but catching up with friends did made the day feel special.

    A Christmas tree made from books…how sweet?! This year, I did up a Christmas tree too, for the first time. It gives a cheerful vibe to the house. Hey, I need the recipe for that wheat pound cake!

    Such a sweet Start! Keep up and get going… It is so fun and celebration needs only heart and no religion.! Even, I celebrate Christmas at home and it ends really well. I am sharing my style of celebrating Christmas http://www.womanzie.com/2016/12/christmas-of-2016-celebration.html

    I love this new tradition Parul. We too aren’t Christian but having always gone to a Christian school my entire family loves singing carols, eating turkey and ham and of course sharing presents. While the girls were small we’d actually have a Christmas breakfast complete with stockings. We’d put up decorations and leave out a plate of biscuits and milk for Santa. When the girls grew up and left home, I’d go to the occasional midnight mass and enjoy the spirit of festivity that somehow is universal.

  11. Loved your take on it, especially because it has books 🙂
    And for what we did this year. Well, S and I took a day off and spent the day together, shopping, watching a movie and then eating out. Yes, we kept missing M but it was a much needed few hours together just like the old days. We plan to do it as often as is feasible. So, not so much a Christmas tradition but more of a personal commitment, I guess 🙂

    This sounds like a great tradition for your family!!

    I didn’t do too much different, but it was delightful to see my two little great nieces and my baby great nephew. The kids (ages eight months, three years, and four years) make Christmas seem quite magical.

  14. It’s a lovely set up you’ve got. Hope you had an enjoyable Christmas and are looking forward to the new year! 🙂

    We celebrated Christmas with gifts for Kanna and baby which Santa brought. Even though Santa failed his wishlist, Kanna was happy that he was in the good list of Santa and that he got some gifts. 🙂 Your Xmas celebration is just the way it should be, Parul, spreading g love and cheer! 🙂

  17. MALINY says:

    So good of you to do this, Parul. My Christmas was normal this year as I had duty at the hospital. But yes, in a way I did my part in keeping the world a healthy place 🙂

    I am not a Christian, either. In the United States, you have no choice but to celebrate Christmas in some way as it is just overwhelmingly everywhere. It’s easy, though-in some ways Christmas has truly evolved into a universal holiday, and I enjoyed your take on it.
