My Mom made the Christmas season so magical for us kids, she loved the holidays. Unfortunately, our parents are no longer with us but, they started so many wonderful family traditions that we still carry on today. All of us go every year and cut down a Christmas tree together. We get up early and have breakfast, and then we “hunt for the perfect Christmas tree” and ending with baking Christmas cookies!
