We have made new traditions, but somehow some of the magic is gone when your parent is no longer there. You spent every Christmas of your entire life with them, so there is bound to be a void when they are no longer there. In addition to that, I rarely see my sister or her family at Christmas anymore.
I get it....things change, life changes. I know that. But when you spend nearly 45 Christmases together, it's hard to say goodbye to those deep rooted traditions.
I love you Mom, and I miss you every day.
