What rituals do you follow during the holidays, or what have you ritualized?
At my house when we’re putting up the Christmas tree, I play the same Christmas album first every year. It’s Barbra Streisand’s “A Christmas Album”. It’s come to be a ritual even though it sounds like something so small. It’s expected.
Some holidays call for religious observances. Non-religious folks may still follow holiday traditions without the overt religious practices, but they may still have rituals.
Are there things you do at your house during the end-of-the-year holiday season that can be called a ritual?
