Candy Trails and Christmas Cereal


My siblings and I may all be adults now, but there’s something about Christmas that takes us back to our childhood!

I’m not sure how the candy trail tradition started other than we got the idea from some friends. Even though each of us knew how to get to the Christmas tree, it was extra special to have a candy trail from the girls’ bedrooms and the boys’ bedrooms to the tree!

Usually the trail involves arrows and words, like “almost there” or “Merry Christmas” spelled out in the candy. It’s fun to see how the trail changes each year!

Every Christmas Day we wake up early—really early! We love Christmas!

The breakfast table is always set with a fun theme plus our own personal box of a favorite sugary cereal. The tradition started a long time ago because we usually don’t buy sugary cereal.

Christmas is a marvelous time to enjoy simple, favorite foods we usually don’t eat any other time of the year!

And just because “It’s that time of year,” here’s “The Christmas Waltz” from Jazzy Christmas to You!
