I love going to Kuby's, and picking up sandwich meat for our Christmas Eve meal.
I love grabbing cookies at Stein's.
The thing about traditions, apparently I'm not the only one that has them. Kuby's is standing room only, you have to take a number at Stein's bakery, and there's lines at the restaurants, stores, and specialty shops all over town. But 'our' family traditions make me feel a little closer to people who aren't here anymore that started these traditions. I know in heaven today they enjoyed a feast, maybe exchanged a ridiculous coffee cup, and sprinkled some sugar cookies, and I miss them, but also feel closest to my family, here and away, than any other time of the year.
