MODESTO – So 2016 has arrived and you've packed on a few holiday pounds thanks to the cookies and the egg nog, an ample helping of ham and a few adult beverages to celebrate the end of the calendar year.
There's probably not a modern-day Christmas tradition that can match bundling up in warm clothes, jumping in the car, and burning up some fossil fuel to take in the spectacle of holiday lights that brighten what would otherwise be a dreary winter night sky.
While some of us are approaching that unwritten deadline of putting up our Christmas lights, others have been plotting their design for months.
The Christmas season brings many different traditions that we all love. Family traditions such as decorating the tree with strings of real popcorn and cranberry, preparing special cookies, jams or other goodies only made this time of year. Some of our traditions might even be a bit corny like the yearly ugly sweater family photo taken by the fireplace. Even if they are corny traditions, if we didn't do them every Christmas we would sure miss it.
