Thanks to Colleen Chesbro at Word Craft Poetry for the prompt for this week’s #TankaTuesday – a holiday traditions Cinquain.

Two big traditions in my home growing up and in my home now with my children are baking Christmas cookies and decorating gingerbread houses out of graham crackers. This year, I tried baking real gingerbread for the first time, inspired by my daughter who loves to bake. We might have to add it to the tradition!
