A Toast to Tradition: Our Fans’ Most Treasured Holiday Rituals!

December 24th, 2012

 

Our special traditions are what sustain us as human beings; our rituals help us feel connected to the world around us. The holidays are a time to revel in our own beloved traditions, whatever they may be. This holiday season, I’d like to share a wish for my extended 21 Drops family: Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you happiness… may it be yours this holiday season and throughout this coming year.

— Cary Caster, 21 Drops founder

 

We all have our own unique traditions… what are yours? We asked our Facebook fans this question and they shared their favorite holiday rituals on the 21 Drops Facebook page. Check them out below (and see if yours is here, too!)

Evelyn: My family likes to cut their own tree, so that’s always an adventure… lol
Brielle: Every year my family picks out a real Christmas tree, and the pine smell has become a Christmas staple in our house.
Elisheva: My mother frying her amazing potato latkes on Chanuka – the smell is heavenly!
Arwa: 12 grapes on the stroke of midnight new year’s eve…
Nancy: My husband dragging in the biggest Christmas tree in the Major Metro Area — every year
Jen: We save all of our presents and wrap them all at the same time while watching “Elf”. Helps motivate us to get the shopping done!

Jessica: My family always plays games on Christmas… especially Yahtzee. If there is enough of us we also like to play Pinochle, but that can get pretty competitive 🙂

Krystal: We got married this year, so my husband and I are starting a tradition where we make an ornament together and inside of it we are putting one of our favorite memories/things that happened that year (can you guess what ours was this time?! lol) 

Brenda: We like to get hot chocolate and take a night to drive around to look at Christmas lights all over town while singing carols (very loudly).

Layla: I have these wonderful memories of playing dreidel and kvitlech (a Yiddish card game) with my grandparents when I was a kid.

Danielle: Best: having the biggest and amazingly decorated tree in Fairfield County. Worst: getting rid of it in January.

Awww… we’re getting nostalgic here!
