One of my traditions for the past 20 years is dancing in The Nutcracker as an adult in the party scene with Dances Patrelle. Bravo, Lis!

Sarah Walsh, Spa Director at exhale Back Bay

When I get home to DC – my family goes to ZooLights every year. It’s my favorite tradition!

Molly Colabuono, Spa Director at exhale Chicago

Here’s an old tradition of my family growing up, and I now do with my family. We drive around to see the houses all decorated for Christmas! We always try to find the houses that are set to music on a local radio station and the lights “dance” to the music – it’s so fun.

My favorite holiday tradition is making molasses cookies with my Mom. They’re delightfully chewy, and have lots of holiday spices like ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. Here’s the recipe. We use Pamela’s Baking + Pancake Mix instead of flour and baking soda to make them gluten-free!
