Here we are at the end of a year and the beginning of another!
I was thinking about what our Family does to celebrate. And then I started thinking about HOW those became tradition.
There are MANY things that each of us do that have become a part of us, our families (passed on throughout generations), that impact our friends and even our world!
Many will be gathering with friends or family, counting down to the start of the new year,watching the ball drop or spinning noisemakers at midnight.
I hope your 2016 is FILLED with traditions that bring you JOY and bring a SMILE to those who continue them!
