Tradition of Christmas

Keep your hands off my cookie dough until it is done baking! (The Spokesman-Review)

Good evening, Netizens...


We have mentioned promise and hope as parts of Christmas which have great meaning in all our lives. Materialism is perhaps one of the other aspects of Christmas that gets often mistaken for traditions, but in our household, we have a unique situation as grandparents, that we can paint on a fresh canvas of our grandchildren, impressing on them that there is so much more to Christmas than gross materialism.


One of the traditions we have already celebrated is our granddaughter learning to make Christmas cookies for friends and family.


As you can see by the flour on her nose, this tradition will live on into the next generation.
