Lots of older traditions that have had to change. A lot of family gatherings, lots of food, seeing relatives rarely seen during the year. Sharing gifts, candle light services, and remembering the reason for the season.
Unfortunately today, families are further away, and while there are still family gatherings, most of my family is fa fa away ... so a new tradtion is making lots of calls.
Also a newer tradition is packing up some tea and wares for the gatherings!
Began this Christmas TD with remnants of Yutaka Midori "Classic" with the Mrs.. Sencha is getting realllllly low. Less than 10 grams of a few selections. Hoping for tea under the tree!
