My Take by Reann Fournier

Traditions are a way to keep connected with family and to get back to that innocent child-like love for the holidays. I’m lucky enough that my family is small, meaning our gatherings and traditions won’t be as impacted as others. I’ve got to say, my favourite family tradition has always been decorating our tree. My mum, brother, and I get together with fondue and decorate our completely unconventional Christmas tree with homemade ornaments from our childhood. We always catch the old stop-motion movies on the hallmark channels, and throughout the season my Christmas crazed mother keeps the spirit alive, even as my brother and I grow older. While many families may not be able to participate in the same traditions as usual this year, I’m hoping that we are still able to find ways to incorporate their favourite traditions and practices into their holiday season.
