Ever since I can remember my mom has taken our signature Christmas Day pictures. This consisted of mom taping all of our unwrapped paper together to create a background. She started the tradition by putting the backdrop up the Christmas tree. One year she even set it up outside for better lighting. As we got older we began to complain and one year she stopped taking the wrapping paper pictures. It was a sad day and I felt guilty for all the complaining I did.
So I’ve been thinking lately, do I start a tradition like this? It would be nice to have a picture tradition even if it’s not this same tradition. I’m thinking pictures by the tree would be great. This way we can see how we decorate the tree from year to year too!
