50 Things: The Holidays

28 Nov

Since being in the military lifestyle, we have come to the realization that we will never have a “normal”  holiday again.  It will not be us with our parents and siblings around the table talking about the year, or what we are thankful for.  The past few years, it has been more like us + friends and their kids + friends of friends and more friends of friends.  Chaos, food, stories, and meeting people for the first time.  We have spent Christmas in hotel rooms, and thanksgiving at friends houses, where everyone brings in their own traditions.

Normally change would freak me out.  I love tradition, and routine.  I spent 18 years having Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and all other holidays with my mom, dad, sister, and brother, grandparents, and that’s IT.

I think right along with Black Friday, cyber monday, and the day after Christmas, a lot of that doesn’t matter! as long as you are with people who you care about, and people who care about you, that’s a holiday!
