      Tradition #1:

      From the time my children were little (oldest is almost 30…youngest

      is 16), I either sew or purchase them new pj’s and also get each of

      them a new pair of slippers that they get to open Christmas eve, just

      before bedtime.

      Tradition #2:

      The first saturday of December we always go to a tree farm and cut

      our Christmas tree. Then we stop to see Santa and the reindeer and

      other animals (tree, Santa and animals all at the same farm). Go

      home, put on Christmas music, eat cookies and drink hot cocoa with

      candy cane stir sticks, while decorating the tree…then we settle in

      and watch a Christmas movie or read a Christmas story book together.

      Tradition #3:

      I make Stuffed French toast every Christmas for breakfast. I prepare

      it the day before, refrigerate it overnight, pop it in the oven while

      we open gifts…an easy, no fuss breakfast on Christmas morning!

      Tradition #4:

      A couple of nights before Christmas we drive around to certain areas

      in our town and look at Christmas lights.

      ***make cookies…take to a local nursing home and homeless shelter…

      ***recycle and make Christmas cards that we hand out along with the

      cookies at the nursing home/homeless shelter…

      ***donate time with our local walk-n-knock food drive…

      ***when my kids were young, we’d pick tags off the angel tree and

      make and buy gifts for needy children the same age and sex as my own

      children. Now I am starting this with my granddaughter.
