Tradition! Tradition! + A Giveaway!

Traditioonnnnn! Tradition! It’s a song from the musical “Fiddler On The Roof”, but it’s also a value I hold dear. Especially when it comes to the Christmas season. I have many, many traditions on the list. I would venture to say  Christmas in the Stevens’ household has been held in the exact same manner for going on 40 years. I have only spent three different years away from my parent’s home since I was a child. It is important to me that things are done in a proper fashion. This is why I’ve firmly boycotted the use of a Starbucks Red Cup prior Thanksgiving for every year since their inception! And, it is why I do NOT listen to Christmas music before Black Friday rolls around…ahem. Until this year.

This year, I have successfully avoided the Cup that Shall Not Be Named, thus far. Partly because I usually drink iced drinks, but because I’ve begun making my own yummy coffee at home. But this weekend, something caught hold of me, maybe it’s the Christmas bug everyone’s been getting, and I typed “Bing Crosby Christmas” into my Spotify, plugged it in to our home system, and last Sunday, our home became full-on Christmas central! And tradition be damned…I’ve loved every minute of it!

So, to celebrate tradition, or rather, breaking tradition, and because I WILL NOT CAVE on the Red Cup issue, I’m giving away a pound of my new, favorite local coffee from Blue Star Roasters! All you need to do is :

1. Like Atlas & Elia Photography on Facebook OR follow Atlas & Elia Photography on Twitter OR follow Atlas & Elia Photography on Pinterest! AND THEN

2. Leave a comment below telling me what is your favorite Christmas song?!

That’s it! And, even though I’ll be listening to Christmas music every day until Christmas, there will be a moratorium on Thanksgiving Day…because it’s tradition.



And the winner is…. Chris Robinson! Congrats! You win a pound off Blue Star Roasters Highway 20 House Blend! Email me to redeem!
