Favorite Family Traditions

Holiday traditions are some of the best things about the holidays, no matter how you celebrate.  

For me, its the Christmas Eve Crab Legs with my Mom and Dad, brunch on Christmas day and hanging out with my parents enjoying the day.

What are some of your family traditions during the holidays?

I asked some of my blogging friends what their's were!

"On Christmas Eve, all the grandkids go to our grandparents house and make Christmas candy. We eat a late dinner, open presents, and stay up late. Sometimes we even get to take a midnight tour of a historic "haunted" theater. It's the best ever.

"I love that every since I was a little girl when I have had Christmas with my parents we have always read the Christmas story, and then go in a circle opening gifts. Afterwards, we always have a huge brunch with biscuits and gravy, omelets, and of course bacon."

"Favorite traditions are candy-making and cookie baking with my mom, visiting the botanical garden, drinking fancy homemade coffee drinks, getting competitive with the xbox live and the special midnight gathering at my church in Washington state."

"Because we are starting this year we have implemented:
Elf on the Shelf ~ Reagan named her Pia and she loves talking to her and finding her new places she pops up.

Staying home on Christmas Eve and experiencing the joy of watching Reagan come down the stairs for the first time and seeing all her presents.
Christmas dinner with family ~ whether it be from my side or my husband's side ... We like to spend it with someone.

"Living away from my family, its hard for us to have any big traditions, but my boyfriend and I always decorate the house together and drive around town to look at the lights."

Amy from The Ramblings from Miss AimyMichelle

"As a family the most prominent tradition is driving around different neighborhoods looking at the light displays. i always remember doing that and still love to do it now, we always used to stop and get ice cream too.

"My mom's side of the family gets together on Christmas Eve and we have a big dinner and white elephant Christmas. Every year all the cousins try to out do each other on the gifts we give. Last year I totally won when I gave a Forever Lazy!

Also every Christmas Eve my son and nephew get to open one gift, which always ends up being pajamas ha ha."

Nicole Robinson from Scraptastic Memories

"For the past 23 years we have had a sleepover held 2 days before Christmas with all my nieces and nephews at my sister-in-laws house and I somehow always got volunteered to participate. This started with 15 kids and has now grown to around 38 kids including the children of those that started it all. We play games and have lots of fun!  

My family also spends time together decorating sugar cookies, making homemade Christmas ornaments, watching Christmas movies and checking out all the Christmas lights around town."

So what are some of your family traditions during the holidays?

Have a great Christmas, everyone!
