Got any family traditions that are coming up? Anything that a lot of you, or a few of you, get into in December? I have two small kids that are at the age of actually remembering experiences. This holiday we will attempt to take the bus (again), go sledding, go skating, and last but not least, go to the Nutcracker.
As they get older, I'll see what we keep and what we ditch. Taking the bus, in my opinion, is pretty fun. We take it to the University of Manitoba, and when we get there we run around the snowy fields and throw snow and make snow angels (last year, my youngest sat in the snow and cried while my other daughter and I did all that fun stuff). I think it's something that they should experience instead of being driven around all the time by me...
At the shop we've kept the tradition of stockings going for the third year in a row. Starting December first, we put up stockings and all of us fill them till our last shift at work. On the last day, we open them up and laugh, and cry, and laugh. It's the best. We do take the Holidays off and this time spent to make memories and be together is very important for me. I hope all of the clients that patronize us aren't too inconvenienced by our break, but all of you should know that we are so grateful for each and everyone of you that choose Freshair Boutique to be your salon!
