One of my very favorite traditions is decorating our tree right after Thanksgiving. My mom started the tradition and I remember how magical the whole night was. She would get out all the ornaments that each had a special memory, then we would all gather around to decorate the tree. We always ate meat and cheese trays for dinner with sparkling cider. There would be Christmas music playing or a Christmas movie in the background, while we came together as a family to relive all the fun times.
