Aprons are special
Part of the joy of having a memorable old-fashioned christmas holidays is to remember about what makes your family unique and making choices of what really matters to you.
When I think about Christmas traditions I often find myself thinking about my childhood at my grandma's house. My grandma used to spend many of her afternoons baking the most delicious cookies, pies,cakes and homemade jams. As a child, I used to be around in the kitchen helping her with the baking. She would always wear an Apron and make me wear one too. Specially because I used to stick my fingers in the dough whenever my grandma was not around looking.
So, aprons are special to me because it brings back many good memories from my grandmother which would wear one around the house to cook or to bake and she would always ensure that i would wear one too.
The other day I got two beautiful sustainable aprons from Yours Again both for me and my beloved daughters. They are indeed, one of a kind Aprons from upcycled denim and made exclusively from a brand that strive to create their style without doing any harm to the environment.
Wearing an apron got me thinking about how important it is for me to revive this beautiful memories that I have from my childhood. I would like to be be able to bring some of the family traditions to my own little family by creating some wonderful memories together with my kids for the years ahead.
Baking have been such an important part of celebrations in my family, special during Christmas. However, after my grandmother passed away (a few years back), the whole baking tradition seemed to fade away. But i have to keep this tradition alive for my new generations to come.
Besides, wearing an apron is a beautiful lost treasure that I definitely need to bring back to my kitchen. Indeed the increased popularity of baking and the appreciation for quality meals made from scratch are bringing people back to the kitchen. With this comes the tradition of wearing aprons.
Whether to keep the grease splatters off your clothes, or for hygienic reasons there’s nothing like a practical and traditional use of aprons in the kitchen.
So my challenge to you is to go find an apron that you like, dust off the old recipe books and go bake some of your favorites grandma's Christmas cookies.
