Growing up, I always looked forward to the traditions that my mom had instituted. They were things that we could count on when special occasions rolled around. A special gift on Valentine’s Day, usually a gold, heart-shaped charm. Huge stacks of Christmas gifts, each child’s stack wrapped in different style paper. And Toffee Dream Pie at Thanksgiving. Yeah, that one ranks pretty high on the list! (If you beg and plead, I just might share the recipe for what we jokingly call, “Diabetic Coma.”)
Mom always made an effort to make things special. And so, I’ve tried to follow in her footsteps. As we’ve blended two families’ traditions (FishPapa’s and my own), we’ve been able to pick and choose from each side, and we’ve also created new traditions, especially for birthdays.
Our top three birthday traditions include:
Tomorrow I’ll be talking about our pinata history as well as offering a few easy how-to’s. Hope you’ll come take a peek.
In the meantime, what are your special birthday traditions?
