We have no christmas tree this year. For the first time in my life, I will be welcoming christmas without a tree. I do have a nativity scene, a christmas wreath and little santas all over our living and dining room.
Last year none of my boys helped in putting up and decorating the tree. Nobody seemed to be excited over the gifts under the tree. So, this year I decided it would be a good way to follow my life philosophy of living simply “omnia mea mecum porto”. Maybe start a new tradition of not following tradition.
My boys will be home in a few days and our family together for the holidays is more than enough to celebrate christmas. There will be less gifts this year, instead there will be a vacation to Taiwan. Bonding with the family.
I like this. I got me more free time for the stuff that I feel are more important.
