One of my favorite traditions since I was a kid is watching White Christmas together. We would get on Christmas pajamas and cuddle on the couch to watch once the tree was up 🙂
My favorite holiday tradition is the family gathering on Christmas Eve and enjoying our favorite appetizers and cocktails before heading to the evening church service.
linda patti says
my favorite tradition is taking a drive around town to check out the pretty lights and decorations before or after Christmas Eve church service!
Linda Sheets says
What I like to do is share in cutting down and decorating the tree and the house. It's so beautiful when we are done and it's a family project, something always to remember.

Our favorite tradition is giving 3 gifts to friends and family. It represented the 3 kings and kept our giving under control. The children go a book, a toy, and a clothing gift.

One of my favorite holiday traditions is sittng in front of the Christmas tree after the family has left on Christmas Eve. Just my husband and me with the Christmas lights and Christmas music playing, reminiscing past holiday memories with the family..
my favorite memory is just the beauty of Christmas Eve, the quiet before the storm 🙂
We kick off the Christmas season by watching National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation just as soon as we finish eating our Thanksgiving dinner. It helps us remember that Christmas can be crazy (family too) and not to lose control!
Bonnie Hockeborn says
My new holiday tradition is getting together with the entire family, which has become so large that we now rent the York Town Hall, enjoying wonderful food and then I set up craft tables for the kids (and some adults) in the family and we create holiday decorations!!
My favorite holiday tradition is getting together to decorate the tree. Thanks for the chance to win blog candy!
Laura Gruskiewicz says
Love, love, love baking every year with my mom. You know Christmas is right around the corner when we are in the kitchen with our aprons on 😉 hoping for that chance to win blog candy. Enjoy the holidays!
I have started a new tradition this year. I am donating items to Child Protective Services. This year is Snowman Soup and Reindeer Noses.
Carla joidrey says
Fried bologna and homemade brown bread with cheese whiz for breakfast
Our Family Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day. Very formal (but not stuffy) with the china, crystal, sterling silver flatware and linens. The grandchildren get to eat at the big table even get to sample the wine if their parents approve.
Barb Y. says
We would drive around town and look at the Christmas lights/decorations for about 2 weeks before Christmas. On Christmas morning, we would allow one child to open one present….so everyone could see the expression on his/her face. Then the next child, etc. till all the gifts were open. I felt like this would make Christmas last longer.
Betty Burkholder says
One of our favorite traditions is to decorate our Christmas dinner table differently every year-sometimes pretty, sometimes very unusual and with wild colors, and have little table gifts for everyone. Then we have pizza or something equally as simple!
Catherine Kraft says
We have the normal traditions – driving around the local area looking at the Christmas lights, decorating the tree and decorating cookies. When my husband and I got married I also gained, at the time, a three and four year old. We celebrate every year (and for 25 years this year) a becoming a family weekend. When we got married we were a military family and living in The Netherlands. We found fun places to go and celebrate and ending with a special meal – sometimes it was a meal out or at home making homemade pizza. We've also incorporated some of the European traditions: Sinter Clas day, German/Dutch goody tray Christmas Eve……It's something we still all look forward to.
Chris Rettig says
The best favorite tradition , is being with family!!! Gathered from all around to just be together!!! watching the tree, eating and sharing our thoughts and dreams, and our life for the last year!!!! Cutting the tree comes in second, with hot chocolate and cookies after we put the tree in the stand!!!What a joyous time of year!!! God's blessing to you and to everyone!!!!
Mary Summers says
At our family gatherings, we each find a favorite ( or new)ornament to hang on the tree and each says what was meaningful to them this year or share a memory from the past.
Love spending time with my family.
Thank you for the opportunity to win your blog candy
Darlene Renshaw says
My favorite is when my Grandma Biskup would hide something for each of us 13 grandchildren "IN" the christmas tree. We would have to each take turns finding our little gift/treat. My grandma was crafty and had a wonderful imagination and I never really thought about it until now:)
Linda Bauwin says
I love getting to know a little bit about each of your Christmas traditions. This is so much fun.
Mary Ann Huntington says
We always sat around in a circle taking turns opening gifts. The next person couldn't open theirs until we had ooohed and ahhhed the last person's present. Our openings always lasted about three hours with a break halfway. Such fun times. Everyone is all grown up now and scattered. I will miss those times this year especially since my husband passed away this summer.
Linda Pasky says
My favorite tradition is going to the 11:00Pm ChriSTMAS EVE
CHURCH SERVICE, for the stories, the beautiful music and the lightning of the candles. Everyone coming out of the church with their candles burning and wishing Merry Christmas. It was wonderful, and then we would go home and have a cup of cocoa ad Christmas cookie
posted by Linda Pasky De. 13th. Thank you and Merry Christmas.
Karen Ochwat says
I like to do something fun and different …one year we did the ugly Christmas sweater contest, winner got crazy christmas socks. Last year we did Christmas sweatz (red and green) and did photos making funny poses. This year we are doing crazy Christmas hats. My kids are grown with children of their own and we include everyone. They want to do Christmas pajamas. Maybe next year! I'll have to watch for the sales after Christmas or start sewing early for everyone's pjs for next year. One summer we did Christmas in July, everyone had to decorate flip flop with a Christmas theme. It was really fun to see all the creative flip flops!
Loraine Pike says
Our family tradition is to we take a family photo every year, usually near the Christmas tree or decorated fireplace. One year we were so busy & forgot, and my son had already gone back to college. We needed to trade cars with him, so the rest of us trooped down to Columbus on New Year's morning, dragged him out of bed (after a wild New Year's Eve, I'm sure!) and I made sure we got our annual photo! THE worst one in history, but one I will remember just because of the story!
Debbie Lathrop says
Getting up early on Christmas morning. Opening the presents and staying in our jammies all day. Having a big dinner and playing with all of the toys that the kids got. We love being together and enjoying the day.
Jan Fay says
My favorite Christmas Tradition is the Christmas Eve Service
when everyone is singing Silent Night and holding their candle to be lit during Silent Night. It is to honor Jesus
Birth and is the most touching tradition during the Christmas Season.
Linda Sheets says
Peace and happiness for all, I don't need anything material.
Jan Mayernik says
I am dreaming of my home filled with family and friends, enjoying the scents from the delicious food prepared for all to enjoy and spending time with my family, eating, laughing, singing Christmas songs, welcoming the blessed new little ones into our family, having my mom visit and making all my stampin up snowflakes and party favors!
Deanna Metzger says
I am dreaming of all my children and grandchildren together on Christmas Eve, attending church, eating dinner together and then, having a grand sleepover!…And staying up too late playing games and laughing.
Ammarita Raber says
I am dreaming of MANY things but mostly of my family being together to celebrate the best gift of all : our Lord and Saviors birth.
phyllis lay says
I am dreaming of a Christmas where everyone loves each other, on all continents, Freedom for all those held under duress, laws and hardships. Wish it wasn't a dream. Merry Christmas.
mary summers says
Having family all together and enjoying the grandkids as they enjoy Christmas.
I am wishing all of my family come together on Christmas day safe and sound. Many are travelling from great distances. We will all be together in my mom's house.
Peggy S from OH says
Getting together with family for good times, good food and a great time, enjoying how blessed we all are.
