Preparing for our traditional bi-cultural Christmas
Since the start of the Advent season last weekend, my house has been aflutter with excitement. As soon as we brought the Christmas boxes down from storage in the attic last Saturday morning, the children began to rummage through them to find their favorite seasonal decorations. Although I warned them that digging into the fragile ornament box was off limits, they unwrapped all the unbreakable items and trimmed the house, setting out our Santa collection and arranging the Nativity scene. With the three of them vying for dibs on the “best” decorations, the house was as rowdy as a sporting event.
