Friends–IT IS TIME FOR THE DECEMBER CURRENTLY. How is that even possible?! Can there really be only 25 days until Christmas?! YIKES!
Well, since I love a good party, and have ridiculous FOMO I’m here to share my December Currently.
I think that generally everything on my Currently this month is pretty self-explanatory, but it was hard for me to pick my favorite tradition. I really love the way that we celebrate Christmas with our family in the day time, and then all of our family friends or friends who don’t necessarily have family in the area come over in the evening. We usually end up with close to 30 people at my parents’ house on Christmas day. It’s so fun. But really, I think that my favorite tradition is the wreath laying at Arlington National Cemetery. The hubs and I have been doing it every year, since we started dating, so I think that I probably also like it for that reason. It’s one of the first Saturdays in December and tons of volunteers come out to Arlington and lay a wreath on every single grave at Arlington. People travel huge distances for the event; there are active military members, foreign military members, veterans, ROTC, motorcycle groups, regular civilian schmoes, like me and Mr. Spouse…it’s so inspiring to see so many people bundle up to honor our veterans who gave their lives for this country. I’m so excited to read other people’s favorite holiday traditions! I’m such a nerd.
Happy holidays, sweet friends!
