Let’s string some Popcorn…share your Christmas preparation traditions

Christmas decorating (5)

Wednesday afternoon, I strung popcorn with our residents to add to the Christmas tree in our Activity Room.  Although this was the first time I’ve done this at St. Anne’s, this yule-time task is definitely not new to me.  Our family used to watch slides of old family photos with my grandparents, while hoping not to hit a hard kernel and stick ourselves with thChristmas decorating (10)e needle.  I’ve heard that cranberries can be messy, so this afternoon, we’ll be using red beads to add to the décor in their stead.  Maybe we’re re-instating an old custom.  If we do it again, I won’t make so much – three cups gave me a lot more than we needed so I ended up making caramel corn with the rest of it!  I hope our residents enjoy that, too!

Please share your own Advent or Christmas traditions and customs.  We’d love to hear them!
