Traditions are a wonderful marriage between the routine and the uncommon, serving as special moments that are comfortingly predictable.

Here are ten holiday traditions that will actually leave you with renewed energy and sometimes even extra time at the end of your day, which is sure a blessing in December. They are memorable and meaningful, but simple just the same.

I’ll admit, I’m not known for being “the chef” in our household. Jason is much more of the creative type in the kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, I can make a mean grilled cheese and a fabulous box of mac ‘n cheese, but when it comes to recipes, Jason is much more interested. One of our mutually favorite channels, though, is The Food Network. It has some great shows, but in my opinion it’s missing out on a interesting niche – non-edible recipes. It’s still cooking, but with a very childlike slant. So, in an attempt to fill the void, I have compiled fifteen of my favorite recipes to resurrect your childlike spirit and leave Adultitis in the dust. Happy cooking!

It’s time to go beyond birthdays and baby showers for workplace celebrations. You know the typical drill: someone is delegated to pick up the marble sheet cake from the local grocery store for so-and-so’s birthday. Then, an equally generic birthday card circulates for everyone to sign their name. Although appreciated and a great first step, we still have a lot to learn from our short friends in kindergarten classes throughout the world. They are serious about celebrating, so much so that they even create holidays in order to do so…ever heard of the 100th Day of School?
