My Family Traditions are each year we take the kids in the car, in our Christmas PJ’s with Hot Coco and blankets to look at Christmas lighting and decorations. We roll the windows down in some neighborhoods to hear the Christmas music playing.

Each year we go to the Christmas Parade and on Christmas the kids open their gifts and we do a special brunch and then a traditional dinner of Ham, Potato salad, cranberries and green beads.

What are your traditions?

XO,

Paula

  4. Here the tradition is quite simple when we make a meal together, we are not invited or we do not receive, then we put our shoes at the foot of the tree and we go to bed. With my husband we will drop the gifts once the children sleep. In the morning the children get up, we make a big hug and we go down to open cadeaix and have breakfast. A happy moment ❤

On the actual day, there will be lots of family members and church friends who will come over for the open house.

  20. Oh wow, Christmas is HUGE for our family and we have a zillion traditions! From all of us cutting down a tree at the same farm every year and taking the same photo, to watching all the movies on our list, baking mincemeat tarts and fruit cake, and listening to Christmas music (but only after December first!!!). My favourite of all is having the “kids” (now 24×2 & 27!!!) sitting on my bed to open their stockings!!! Thank you so much for the chance to win this heartwarming bead!!!

  22. Our family traditions are probably similar to everyone else. We decorate the Christmas tree, prepare a delicious dinner, get together and have fun. If the weather is nice, we ski in the forest, feed the birds and decorate the forest tree. And in the evening we watch the movie “Real Love”)))

  24. We decorate our Christmas tree in December. With my now grown sons we have a good meal either the day before or on Christmas day, in turn at one of us. We play board games, my kids are still fan, no screens! This gives us big bursts of laughter, and it’s so good to feel the same joys as when they were children.

  26. My family and I use to do the ‘cagatió’ ( shitting uncle). Is a Catalan tradition, you place a piece of wood half covered with a blanket. Design eyes, nose and mouth, and then you must put something to eat everyday to him. Like cookies, or fruits,,, then on 24th evening the kids must kik him with a stick and say the words ‘ cagatió-cagatió’ and then kick and a gift come from down the blanket ( he poo gifts). Its really funny for kids but also for adults ( moore if you drink wine).

  27. Traditions have changed over the years with four kids now older and getting their own families and extended ones. We try to still open our gifts on Christmas Eve, something I’ve done since a child. I make Christmas dinner and who can make it, makes it. It’s all about making your mark on the world and four kids starting their own thing is it.

  28. Our tradition: to leave everything bad in the old year, pay off debts and forgive everyone and ask for forgiveness. So that in the new year it all starts from scratch. Before the new year, be sure to take a bath or go to the bath. For New Year’s Eve, prepare traditional Olivier and herring salads under a fur coat. Prepare a hot dish, but not from the meat of the animal of the coming year. On the table should be a lot of tangerines, champagne and sparklers. Under the chiming clock, we go out and launch a salute

  29. Our family makes cocoa with peppermint sticks and watches It’s a Wonderful Life, after dinner. Then we pile into cars and go see the Christmas lights in various neighborhoods. We love traditions. It gets harder after you lose loved ones.❤️

  33. We don’t have many real traditions, but spending Christmas day with my family is of great value to us all. We eat together, eat “bûche de Noël” in the afternoon, stay at the table and talk for hours (while drinking too much coffee). We don’t exchange presents, being present is the main thing.
