|Lucky Charms from Christmas 2011|
Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. Saying that it's my favorite is a huge understatement, but I want to share a tradition that has stuck around even to this day...
Growing up, we lived in a very healthy household. Having goldfish was a special treat for a snack, and there was never soda or "sweet cereal" under our roof. Being health conscious was instilled in me from a very young age, but come Christmas time we got to have a special treat. It's Christmas after-all! Ali and I would each get to pick out a "sweet cereal" from the grocery store. And Lucky Charms was the one to get. I mean they are magically delicious!
Some years, I would stray from the Lucky Charms choice and get Fruity Pebbles or Coco Krispies, but they just weren't the same.
Last year, when my mom asked if we'd still like Lucky Charms, I was shocked that the thought of not having them would even cross her mind. Dramatic, I know. But even now, at the ripe age of 24, I'm still health conscious. I don't keep "sweet cereal" in the apartment for M and I.
With Christmas just around the corner, I'm looking forward to coffee with my Christmas morning's Lucky Charms.
Do you have any food traditions for Christmas morning?
