I love lots of Christmas traditions:

Classic Christmas movies. (Somebody posted a comment on Facebook the other day asking if she’s missing out by never having seen It’s a Wonderful Life. It was all I could do to stop crying and pull myself together before replying.)

Christmas candy…especially candy that other people make. I tend to have issues when I attempt to make it myself. (Seriously, ask my family about Melissa trying to make peanut brittle. You’ll hear words like “smoke,” “charred,” and “how is the house still standing?”)

Christmas decorations. Snow. The candlelight Christmas Eve service. FAMILY.

But there is one Christmas tradition that has far too easily taken up center stage my past few Christmases. And I don’t like it. I don’t like it in a little kid, stomp my foot, stick out my bottom lip and go full-on Veruca Salt kind of way. It’s a little tradition I like to call…busyness.

  1. My brother, as a preteen, wondered why my family never visited anyone for Christmas. So once I was on my own I began having them over. Ever since then I have had my parents and brother at my and then our place.
