Holiday Traditions

I don’t have many holiday traditions, but I watch the Sound of Music every year around Christmas time. One of my earliest childhood memories is watching it with my mom. While this YouTube clip doesn’t have the Rodgers and Hammerstein music, it does visually capture most of my very favorite scenes.


My hot yoga studio (Tula Hot Yoga Denver) has a few holiday traditions of their own. Every year they hold classes on Christmas and New Year’s day. I love this and attend anytime I’m in town. This year, I participated in another of their traditions – 108 Sun Salutations (video link if you haven’t done one) in honor of the Winter Solstice (they held it a few days early) to welcome back the sun. I’m ready for the days to start getting longer again. I hadn’t done a Sun Salutation in years, but this was fantastic. Definitely a new holiday tradition for me.

What are yours?
