Every Christmas morning, as my kids are unwrapping their gifts, cinnamon wafts through our house. Homemade Cinnamon Buns are a requirement, (according to my kids) for Christmas Morning. I remember one Christmas, our whole family was spending a couple of months in the Philippines. We were living with a team of people on a missions base in Baguio. Our family was there on a service project. We were volunteers, living on, next to nothing. My children remember that Christmas as one of their favorites. We made decorations out of paper and shopped for each person with a $10 budget. We were living with people from 11 different countries, so we were blending our traditions to create a unique holiday. We wanted to share our tradition. I emailed home and had my mother in law send me the recipe for the Homemade Cinnamon Buns. I tracked down the ingredients at the local store and got to mixing and baking. As our team slowly awoke that morning and the kids and their parents came to breakfast, they were greeted with an ooey, gooey cinnamon bun.
This year, my 14 year old, (who wants to be a baker when he grows up) has volunteered to get up with me Christmas morning and help make the Cinnamon buns. I have a feeling this tradition will continue with his family one day.
