As we approach my favorite holiday of the year, Christmas, I started to think about some Christmas traditions that I miss.

Like so many of you, we too had our own traditions while growing up and I miss them. Let me note here that some traditions that I will mention below are not completely gone, but they just aren't as prevalent as they once were for the holidays.

Think back to your childhood years and think back to counting the days down to Christmas. We were all surrounded by things that we miss today and here are just a few of those that I hope we bring back into our home or community in the years ahead.

Let's have some fun evaluating some of the things that we miss these days for Christmas season.
