Traditions are a way of life. It's a way to teach others language, customs, culture, counting, colors, memorization, words, music, and repetition. Many families practice holiday traditions and pass them on to their children and loved ones. I think of tradition as a blessing that is the hallmark of a way of life passed down through the ages. Although rituals can sometimes be perceived as boring to some when going through the motions, once the commitment stops, and there's no one there to continue the tradition, it leaves a vacant spot that's hard to explain.  

 

I thank the artists, craftsman, volunteers and individuals who make a big production out of a holiday tradition to share with everyone who may otherwise be excluded or as a way to bring family and friends together for an annual tradition. This is the second year the Dallas Arboretum celebrates Holiday at the Arboretum featuring the 12 Days of Christmas now through January 3, 2016. The gardens sparkle at night with more than 500,000 lights trimming their ornamental trees. The walk through the gardens day or night is beautiful; however, an evening stroll during the holiday seasons makes something from within glow with warmth and joy. Let every heart rejoice!

Thank you for the lovely post- I know that you are a gal that believes in traditions and yes, it is sad when there is no one around to continue them.  I am hoping that my son is learning from me!

Sharon Tara Grant Schneider and George Souto - This was the second year for the Holiday of Lights at the Arboretum. I'd like to make this an annual tradition. They added 500,000 lights this year but the exhibts are the same, just different photos from last year. Last year was cold; this year was unseasonably warm and very enjoyable.
