With Christmas fast approaching long-standing traditions begin to show their faces. As I type my family is whipping up endless batches of cookies while “A Muppets Christmas Carol” plays in the background. Just days earlier the whole group of us, my cousins, aunts, and uncles, gathered together to “deck the halls” at my grandparent’s house. This time reminds me of all of the fun my family has and puts me right into the Christmas spirit, making me grateful for all I have been given.
