My favorite Holiday Tradition is going to the Candlelight service at my church, and then heading to my grandmother's house to unwrap presents!
My favorite holiday (winter) tradition is making a snow caterpillar in the front yard with family. No need to lift those heavy snowballs this way!
Our family lives close to the Mormon Temple in Kensington, Maryland so we go there every Christmas Eve to see the beautiful lights, watch a few short Christmas films, and marvel at the Nativity Displays from all over the world!
We've combined a Christmas/birthday tradition for my daughter who has a December birthday. We always go see the Christmas lights set up at our nature center on her birthday. Sometimes it's warm, sometimes it's cold, but for 9 years we've been there!
Our favorite holiday tradition is opening one present on Christmas Eve, and then driving around to look at beautiful Christmas lights. It's a fun chance to be together as a family.
As a single parent the holidays are often a lonely and quiet time for me, but when my son returns from visiting his Father, we celebrate Christmas together. My favorite tradition is more the lead up and the details that go into making our special day memorable. The leftover cookie crumbs on Santa's special plate and the goodbye, but see you again letter on Easter left by Elf Bernie. My son's face (age 6) just lights up when he can see that he made Santas nice list :) After opening presents we pray and share all that we are thankful for and hope to experience in the new year. - Thank you for reading.
Christmas morning must be our favorite because the boys talk about it ALOT! All four of our boys come into our room, no earlier than 6am :) , pile into our bed and just be excited, talk, dream, laugh, and snuggle! I eventually slip out & turn on the tree & get the video camera going. Once that's done I give a call & everyone comes rushing! Open our gifts-which takes a while, they savor everything. After that Grandma comes over for breakfast & stocking time.
I look forward to Christmas with family coming home to enjoy the company of each other. I also enjoy the sounds of little ones playing with new found treasures, as well as, stories of by gone years. It truly is the most Wonderful Time of the Year!!
My daughter looks forward to opening her advent calendar daily. We sit together and go through the scenes from the Nativity. It's a refreshing change to stop and think about what Christmas really means.
Just as someone else mentioned, we like to load up the car and drive around looking at Christmas lights. There are some paid displays to see, but I think the neighborhoods are much more fun because of just how diverse the lights are. The kids love it.
Favorite holiday tradition is decorating for the holidays. I get out my Christmas villages and decorate a table with fake snow. My children put the ornaments on a table and we decorate the tree. All of this takes most of the afternoon. While we decorate, I bake cookies and make cocoa.
Every holiday season we load the kiddos (2/4) in the car & drive around neighborhoods admiring the lights. We call it Griswolding after the iconic Christmas Vacation movie.
