As a multicultural, bi-national family, we are celebrating numerous holidays in this winter season: Thanksgiving, Idul Adha, Christmas, New Year's. We also have three birthdays this season: one on the winter solstice, one on New Year's Eve, and one in February.

Aside from the many parties and gift-sharing with friends and family, two of our daughter's favorite traditions this time of year are decorating the tree and counting down the days to Santa's visit. Even when we lived abroad (in Indonesia) during the winter holiday season, we decorated a tree (a tropical palm) and created a homemade countdown calendar.

There is one ornament in particular that is really special to us: it's a golden bulb that has a photo of our family from when our daughter was a toddler, as well as audio of me singing a silly song to her about our family. The audio also includes her response to the song (her making more funny sounds than words since she was still learning language when we recorded it). Every year, she plays that ornament's audio over and over throughout the season, her face lighting up each time.

She also likes opening up the windows on the advent calendar -- more so than the eating the chocolate inside the windows! This year, we got an animal-themed advent calendar. We had just finished reading a book about Dug, from the Disney-Pixar movie UP, before opening the first window on December 1, and were gleefully surprised to discover that the first animal was a squirrel. She hasn't stopped talking about that since!
