Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me. If those lyrics are playing on the radio it can mean only one thing the holiday season is upon us. That of course also means it is once again time for the Safari Heat Holiday Blog Hop.
When I think about the holiday season, I think about traditions. Almost all the holidays we celebrate in my family have at least one traditions attached to them. For example at Easter, the Easter Bunny leaves a candy trail from the girls' bedrooms to their Easter Baskets. Christmas is no different when it comes to traditions. The funny thing about traditions, however, is that over time they sometimes change. For example growing up in my family we always had a big fish dinner on Christmas Eve, and opened one present. Then on Christmas morning we opened the rest and then had big Christmas dinner.
In my husband's family, however, Christmas Eve was always a bigger deal with the grandparents sleeping over and opening all the presents except those from Santa.
Today, we have adapted his family traditions rather than mine. Do I mind? No, why? Because while traditions are great that doesn't mean you can not be flexible and change. That is what being a part of a family is all about. Perhaps that is why I love to write contemporary romances that are heavy in the family department. One of my series The Sherbrookes of Newport which consist of 5 novels focuses on one wealthy and powerful family. My second series Love On The North Shore is all about the people and families in North Salem, Massachusetts.
Now since this is a blog hop that means 1) you can enter to win lots of prizes including Kindle HD6 and 2) there are a lot of other blogs to visit. To do both follow the link:
