The first holiday tradition of the season for our family is the second Sunday of November we always put up our Christmas tree (okay, trees–yes, my husband puts up 10–yikes!). When we put up our big tree in the family room we always watch Polar Express and have hot chocolate. It’s the perfect show to watch while putting up the tree because there isn’t much of a story line, so if you get side tracked, that’s okay. Ha! Nothing fancy right, but you can’t believe how excited the kids get to do this every year. Simple, yet fun. Let the holidays begin!
