I think I officially stopped living with my parents about four years ago- got an actual place in CollegeTown and spent the better part of the year there, but went home for weekends and things like that. (CollegeTown was only an hour's drive from the folks, so 'going home' once a week was easily doable.) Also, since home was so close I didn't really bother with decorating or celebrating at my own humble abode- I just hopped in the car and later that day I'd be surrounded by kids and craziness and the sort of celebrating that comes with having a family of ten. Last year was Scott and I's first Christmas together as a married couple, and instead of attempting any sort of brouhaha on our own we opted to just fly the three thousand miles and be with our families. (Scott had just gotten back from Iraq around that time as well, so it was a bit of a welcome home for him as much as a holiday thing.)
This year, however, we'll be on our own. Not by choice, mind, but because hubby was denied leave by his command, and I refused to go back east without him. It will be an odd feeling not having a houseful in the coming weeks, but maybe this will be our chance to come up with some of our very own holiday-type traditions.
Now a question for all of you: when you moved out/got married/skipped the country, did you take your holiday traditions with you, or did you come up with things unique to your new life? Bonus points if you feel like sharing details, just because I love hearing about other people's cool lives. :)
