#31DDD - Do you have any unusual family traditions? What are they?

This holiday season brings one tradition to mind. 

I don't have a tree.  And for that matter neither does my mother.  Years ago, when she finally got rid of our artificial tree that had been in the family for over 30 years, she decided that she wasn't going to get another one.  My sister and I were grown and the whole purpose of a tree was for the children to have something to dive under and get their presents...she was over it.  And by proximity so was I.

When I moved to Northern VA, I didn't bother getting a tree because I pretty much felt the same.  So after almost 10 years of not having a tree, I still have the holiday spirit, but that bit of green that takes up space in my living room...totally unnecessary in my world view.

Thanks Ma!
