Howliday traditions

Today is the Blogville Holiday Traditions bloghop, where we can all share the traditions that make up our howliday season!

This year I've thought a lot about howliday traditions, because we've had one of the most UNtraditional Christmases imaginable. We don't even have a tree or any decorations up at the house! Because we moved to our new house right in the middle of December and Momma has been packing and unpacking our entire house, we haven't put up anything or done most of our usual traditions. BUT there is one that we'll follow every year, no matter what!

This is Momma's favorite version of A Christmas Carol, and that's her favorite Christmas story of all. Usually we watch it while Momma decorates the tree, but this year she pulled it out all on its own and we watched it curled up together on the couch. That was just fine by me! Then on Christmas Eve, when we all go to sleep, Momma will read A Christmas Carol in bed while Jessie and I snuggle her. It's the bestest tradition.


  1. Bravo Jessie, Casey and Pigeon!!
    You can NEVER ever go wrong with Miss Piggy and Kermie as a tradition!
    New house new traditions. Don't you just love those ceramic Nativity characters. They sure must have taught it the same way all over in the dark ages 1970.

  2. The Muppets to A Christmas Carol written in 1843. Your Christmas encompasses a lot of years.
