For a long time, my family didn’t have a lot of huge holiday traditions.

With my dad being a pilot and working on a lot of major holidays, it was more of a tradition for us to have a non-traditional Christmas.

Some years we would go as a family to spend Christmas in whatever hotel he was stuck in for the day, or we would celebrate when he got home.

Other families go to their grandparents' house every year, go to see a movie on Christmas or stick a pickle in the tree every year, but we never really did those “normal” things.
