 Everyone has their family traditions. I'm not very good at them. Once my mother passed away, it's been hard to keep up any consistency. 
We have a lot of traditions at work. After working together with some of my colleagues for over 17 years, we have become another family. This year, as is tradition, we had crazy sock day, holiday shirt day, pajama day and crazy hat day, this last week before going on winter break. Last year I made a  beautiful head band of poinsettias, dreidals and gelt but I forgot it in a rush to get to work.

The advantage to having a well stocked art room is that with a little imagination, I could whip up some altered store bought reindeer antlers. Hello "Moshe the Hanukkah Reindeer" antlers! Do you think there's a market for these?
 Some of my traditions revolve around flowers. I have become my mother and tias! One of our local nurseries has had a yearly poinsettia festival. It's an event I can still get the Chick to attend with me.
 Our favorite part is the visit to the greenhouse.
 This is why... A picture with my chick :)
Happy holidays, everyone!
