I find holiday shopping and gift-giving overrated. But it does not dampen my love of the season. Driving in the neighborhood, looking at the lights is a favorite pastime. Two or three streets away, every home on the block is festooned with lights. I detour to drive by every chance I get.
I also enjoy walking the Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza, (downtown Chicago). We often take a weekend and stay downtown for the weekend. I might make a purchase or two, but it is not the focus. It is about enjoying the sights, sounds, and people.
What non-holiday, holiday traditions do you observe?
Keep on writing.
