The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Tradition Edition

Family traditions are a beautiful thing. Families just find a nice way of doing things that they like and they simply repeat it, and the joy of it grows over time.

This year, we’re doing our Christmas celebration very differently. In years past, Sarah and I have travelled to visit our parents over Christmas, but starting this year, we’re celebrating Christmas at home. This will be a big change, but it will also be a chance to start establishing our own traditions.

I’m looking forward to it.
