Everyone has a tradition that they carry from years prior in their own life.  Some traditions come from growing up and some are developed as a new family.  These traditions no matter how they started, give us memories and a way to belong to something that is familiar to us.  This year take a moment to ask a friend about their family traditions and take an interest in their story.  Why you may ask?  This Christmas season make it about caring about someone else’s life and if that tradition includes making cookies, creating a new holiday dish to serve, or painting a new ornament, give that friend a new recipe to share or paint a new ornament with the year inscribed.   Share with your friend that you want to enhance their tradition this year and give them something to remember you by.  It does not have to be about spending a lot, it can be something as simple as writing a new recipe on a card or making it for them; the idea behind this is making memories that will live on for years to come.
