  4. One of our favorite traditions is driving around the neighborhood to see all of the Christmas lights right before opening our presents on Christmas Eve. There's a neighborhood near us where they really have a tradition of going totally all-out with the lights and decorations. Each year they seem to top themselves all over again. Thanks for the chance to win! gwtwred@hotmail.com

  5. We always decorate sugar cookies- I don't always make them, I cheat and buy them, but the decorating is the fun part! Then the kids arrange a plate of cookies to leave out for Santa with a few carrots for a reindeer snack.

  6. I always celebrate Saint Nicholas Day with little gifts for my co-workers.

  7. Mine is a new tradition, but we will do it every year now. You find, purchase and collect 24 Holiday themed books and wrap them all individually. Put them in a basket or "wrapped with holiday paper" box that's open on the top, and have the kids pick one each night to read.
    We also watch Elf every year on Christmas Eve.

  8. Getting a new ornament every year was one of my favorite traditions growing up and is now with my kids. I especially like them when they have some fun memory attached to them. Like this years ornament will be sea shells we collected from our CA trip a couple months ago, another year it was crystals we dug up ourselves on a trip to MT. Such fun to look back. Then when the kids get married and have their own trees (that'll never happen, my babies can't grow up), they'll take their ornaments to de orate their own tree with.

  9. This is a silly one, but we always watch The Shining after opening presents and waiting for the food on Christmas day.

  10. Getting new jammies for Christmas. We open them on Christmas Eve and we all have new jammies to wear to bed. I buy them for my kids and my mum still buys them for me and I am 44 :)

    Our family also has a seafood feast tradition and every Christmas Eve means my mom's seafood risotto, crab, clams and other goodies galore. I seriously look forward to it all year long.

  15. A tradition I cherish I did with my momma as a child... that I now do with my son, get some clear circular ornaments and some favorite photos-cut them into circles, roll them up and insert them into the ornament to decorate the tree with. I remember my favorite part was adding glitter or gems/beads inside before closing them and hanging them. My momma taught me to be crafty at an early age:)

  19. We started a new tradition last year, after taking this class. One instructor shared how each year she took a photograph of her Christmas cards next to her completed envelopes. I LOVED the idea. Now we have a photo that captures our cards, the Christmas stamp, and my handwriting.

  23. When I figured out that Santa Claus could not possibly deliver presents to all of the children in the world in one night, my loving mother let me be Santa's helper and arrange the presents for the younger children under the tree before I went to bed on Christmas Eve. It made Christmas even more special for me.

  24. My favorite Christmas tradition is sitting in front of the fireplace with cozy pj's, hot cocoa, and reading stories with the kids before bedtime Christmas Eve.

This year he broke his foot and has our youngest helping him and I just love this tradition because it keeps the family closeness with the busy holidays.

  46. We have a wonderful advent calendar made by my husband's aunt that the kids take turns putting the baby Jesus on (have to write a note annually so we know whose turn it is next year!). It's always so exciting to start the countdown.
