First of I cant believe Im writting this post already! This year has flown by! and the holidays are literally right around the corner.
Last year a co worker had an ornament swap party and one of my friends asked the rest of the ladies, “What is your annual Christmas Eve/ christmas day tradition?”
What do we eat? Where do we go? What do we do?
I know that many new families are looking for new traditions and are often torn with whether to begin their own family traditions or continue with old family traditions. It’s hard to come up with fun original ideas, and now that my family is growing I was hoping that you could all leave your tradition here in a comment– and then people/me have a place to find fun ideas for new traditions with their family.
Spanish cultures usually open gifts and celebrate Christmas on the 24th so we used to do that until my mom remarried and then we started a new tradition to open only one gift at midnight. Justin and I have followed this tradition since Austin was born, but we actually just did it with us once Austin went to bed.
Another Tradition that we have is to always bake cookies during the day before we go to church or before we head to our relatives house.
and I know Im a such a little kid but I really LOVE this one, because my siblings and I did it growing up, was to wear the same pj's on christmas eve so that we could have a picture op in the morning while we open presents.
So yeah I guess we dont have that many but I would like to start some new ones, even though sometimes it could hard because both of our families are local so we are always traveling/splitting houses on the holiday.
What is your Christmas Eve tradition?
