From Danielle’s blog:
We all leave our “footprint” on the world, in one way or another. We each, individually, do something or are someone that makes the world a little better just by being here. I created this weekly meme to get to know the blogging community I love just a bit better. To know what makes them tick, outside of books, that is. Each week I will post a question to be answered in the following week’s “A Bit of Me(Me)”. Check back each Saturday to get the info for next week’s post and link up with your current post right here.
This week’s question: It’s the holidays! Do you have a favorite holiday tradition or is there one you want to start?

We have 2.
First, Christmas Eve is our biggest tradition. Catholic Italians, which I am one of, have a tradition of serving a dinner with a variety of 7 fishes. For 24 years we invited immediate family and friends for a sit down dinner with many courses (I haven’t done it for a few years, but sure miss doing it, because of my back..it would take 2 days to prepare). Then around 10pm, many types of desserts would be put out and we would host an open house until the wee hours of Christmas morning.
And another tradition we started, when friends gave us a dated Hallmark Christmas Ornament, the first year we were married. Since then we get one for every year we have been married, some of the special ones are for the year our boys were born. The ornaments were of a crib and the other, a crib mobile. We will have 29 this Christmas. I can’t wait to start the tradition when my boys get married. It is fun and nostalgic, unwrapping each ornament, seeing the date and reminiscing of memories for that year.
