Start A Family Christmas Tradition With SIPPITY Hot Chocolate Mix

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 12/12/2016

Christmas is that time of year when family traditions radiate. One of the most memorable traditions my family experiences at Christmas is going together as a family to get the Christmas tree, bring it home and decorating it while we enjoy a nice warm mug of Sippity chocolate peppermint hot chocolate.

Unlike most people who purchase their Christmas tree from their local home goods store, or the hastily prepared tree lot on the corner, at the time I grew up in the Bronx we purchased our Christmas tree off a box car in the train yards. I recall on many instances going with my parents and three brothers and sister on a cold, snowy night to the train yard to get our Christmas tree. What is most memorable is how each of us had to have one of our hands on the tree as we carried it home signifying family unity at Christmas. While it was only a half mile from the train yard to our apartment, when youíre eight years old, itís a long, cold journey home. Always waiting for us when we got home were steaming hot delicious mugs containing peppermint hot chocolate.

This Christmas, start a family tradition with your family by going to get your Christmas tree together as a family and enjoying Sippity hot chocolate mix after you bring it home.
