Sure we sell great holiday gifts, but in our humble opinion the best thing about the season has little to do with commerce – we love the personalized, untraditional rituals. For instance, Lindsay and her sweetie pick a Friday night in early December to head to the brew pub across from the Christmas tree lot. After dinner and a locally brewed beer or two, they select their tree and spend Saturday decorating.
Kate and her husband string chili pepper, sea urchin and lizard lights around their beach house. They don’t get each other gifts but spend time planning a trip or home improvement project they will take on together in the next year.
Kim has an annual Christmas day brunch at her house. Her whole loud family comes and, miraculously, they agree not to fight for the entire day.
We want to know the special thing you do this season. Tell us in the comments by 12/18 at midnight and we’ll pick a winner who will receive one of our luscious Cashmoore blankets, just in time to give as a holiday gift or snuggle up with on a good old fashioned New Year’s Day movie bender.
