We have been postponing the tree decoration for a while but finally it is up:)
It is a humble tree (the smallest one we could find at a tree lot) and we have make-shift ornaments. Nothing sparkly... nothing commercial. I love how special it feels... especially with a little train that used to belong to FB's grandfather in Germany.
the handing down of statements, beliefs, legends, customs, information, etc., from generation to generation, especially by word of mouth or by practice. (via Dictionary.com)
I think any marriage of two different cultures (which I believe... is "any" marriage) bring a new dimension to tradition. Because we are hybrid, our tradition becomes truly unique to us... and our roo is getting full exposure to how we do things.
It surely feels very fuzzy and cozy to watch the mini train go by with our little roo in my arm.
Christmas, we are slowly getting ready for you:)
