The holiday season is steeped in tradition. From lighting a menorah to placing ornaments on a Christmas tree, this time of year hold a lot of sentimental moments.

A few of the long-standing traditions include tree trimming with my family, Midnight Mass with my sister, and seeing the lights on 34th street in Hampden.

Saturday afternoon, JA and I spent the afternoon with some of his college friends and creating what I hope to be a new tradition – building.

If I do say so myself, even with pre-made gingerbread pieces, we did fairly well. It was a wonderful afternoon and certainly created memories that will be cherished for years to come.
