Bubbles 2019It’s officially the 2020’s and Sherri and the birdies are trying to tie a neat little bow on the Christmas just past and return to some degree of normalcy to begin the new decade.

Unconventional Traditions

Whether it be decorations, lights, food, television shows or music, we all have Christmas traditions that are near and dear to us.  Some of these traditions change, fade with time, or get updated as years go by.  Our feathered companions are an important part of Christmas festivities and time-honored traditions and are often keen to participate in traditions.
