  1. I love making bonfires with the entire family, making smores and drinking hot chocolate just talking and then watching some christmas movies after.

  2. We pick one family ornament each year for our tree. We also have my son pick out one. It will be his 3rd Christmas. That way when he has a tree of his own he will have some to start him off!

  3. We take a nightly picture after lighting the candles. Its nice to know we are guaranteed at least 8 pictures as a family for the year (since I never get the chance to be in the pictures – I’m always taking them)

  4. My favorite tradition is getting together with my aunt, uncle, and cousins. We go out to the tree farm and then hang out all evening long around Thanksgiving.

  5. Baking Christmas cookies on Christmas Eve day and letting all the kids in our family decorate them. The cousins all come and have a blast. Then that night my kids open one present, always Christmas pjs and we read the night before Christmas. We do this every year! I did it as a kid also.

  6. My favorite Christmas tradition is watching the kids open gifts while we sip our Mexican hot chocolate while wearing pajamas.

  7. I already left a comment twice, but I’m not seeing them on here.. so I’m posting one again to make sure.

    But overall one of my favorite things of Christmas time is being able to spend time with the family and seeing all of the lights and decorations. I can’t wait til my precious baby arrives and we can enjoy Christmas with him. <3

  8. In our town we live in (in NC), every Friday during the holidays they bring in snow machines to make in snow near Santa’s house (little house set up in a courtyard plaza), and we as a family enjoy strolling through our downtown, having dinner, then visiting Santa.

  11. On Christmas Eve everyone opens one present which is a new pair of PJ’s. We then watch a Christmas movie and read a bedtime story before bed.

  12. Our fav family tradition is on Christmas eve as soon as it hits midnight we gather around our nativity, we pray and then we open all the presents except the ones from Santa those we open on Christmas morning. After we open the presents at midnight we eat a hugeee meal! yesss at that hour lol. It’s literally my favorite holiday!

  13. Creating new memories with my boys! Our first son is 2 and his baby brother is scheduled to be making his debut on 12/26! So i’m sure there will be lots of new traditions and memories to make when both boys are with us! 🙂

  14. We’ve been playing the dice game Christmas evening for the past 18 years and it gets so competitive and rowdy. I love that I have such great memories of my family because of that.

  15. Mine is making cinnamon rolls of Christmas Eve. Its an old family recipe that we only make on christmas Eve and let the kids stay up just a little later than usual to help. I did it with my grandma when I was little now my daughter helps me!

  16. my grandkids and kids help me make my nativity scene which is a huge display in my house that everyone comes over to see!

    This is my husband’s Japanese tradition means live long like noodle!!

  24. Now that our boys are a bit older (3, 2, 2mo) we watch a Christmas movie & eat popcorn on Christmas Eve, then Christmas morning it’s homemade cinnamon rolls and hot cocoa while we read the Christmas Story and open presents!

  25. Looking at Christmas lights Christmas Eve before church, then our standard yummy Christmas breakfast casserole and watching A Christmas Story on Christmas day!

  26. When we were kids, our parents and uncles and aunts at midnight turn off the lights, and they told us it was Santa, so after that, the presents were there, Santa had arrived. It was awesome, so now, it is our turn to do it for my children, first time 🙂

  27. Its my daughters first Christmas so we are starting the tradition of having a Christmas Eve box with new pajamas and a Christmas book to read before bed

  28. Our local college has a Christmas lights display and festival… We love going there! Skating and rides, music and lights… And Santa pictures, of course! It’s super fun!

  29. Our family tradition has actually changed a little bit since we moved to the U.S
    Back in our country we used to celebrate with fireworks, but here we can’t so we just gather as a family and enjoy a movie or two. We stay up till 4am for sure.

  30. My favorite family Christmas tradition is getting together with my best friend’s kids on Christmas Eve to have our boys exchange gifts. Then, on the way home we look at the Christmas lights.

  31. favorite tradition is the whole family meeting at my parents in chicago every year. we all live across the country now, and it’s so fun to all be in the same place one week every year.

  34. Since our first Christmas, we pull our mattress into the living room on Christmas Eve night and watch Christmas movies and drink hot chocolate. We sleep there in the living room so when we wake up, all we have to do is grab our presents to open! Now with our first kid on the way, it’s going to be even more fun!

  35. OUr family’s favorite Christmas thing to do is to go on the Christmas Walk a few weeks before Christmas. They have all the houses decorated, music playing, hot chocolate and cookies, Mr. Scrooge, etc. Its a very fun tradition for everyone!!

  36. My favorite family traditions is when we all get together on Xmas eve. All the family is there and we celebrate until late and take the kids home to wait for Santa Claus.

  37. Now that I have a child of my own I never realized how special it was for the parents to see the faces of their children light up with joy on Christmas morning seeing what Santa brought them!!

  38. Riding around looking at Christmas lights, there is a neighborhood near buy where every house puts up lights and several groups will have themes; its a lot of fun for everyone.

  39. My favorite holiday tradition is Christmas Eve dinner….we rotate between family’s houses each year, but it’s always the same group that comes together, potluck style. Love being with my family who I don’t get to see much during the year! (We live too far apart)….

  40. My favorite Christmas tradition is one that my husband brought with him when we started dating. On Christmas eve we all open one particular package from “Santa” – inside is a pair of PJs and one person has a movie, we all cuddle up with hot cocoa and blankets and crowd into the living room to watch the movie and enjoy time together.

  41. My favorite Christmas tradition is opening up stockings. My mom and Santa would fill our stockings with tons of gifts and candy (each piece individually wrapped in wrapping paper!) and I would spend over an hour opening each little item. Even when we didn’t have much money for Christmas those stockings made me feel like I had a bunch of presents. It was incredible!

  42. Yankee Swap with my husbands family. They do it every year and it’s fun watching everyone “fight” over gifts. 🙂

  43. I love the kids waking up super early Christmas morning and so excited to see what Santa left for them, then dinner later in the day with family.

  44. My new favorite holiday tradition is Elf on the shelf, now that I have kids, its fun to get them into the spirit. Another thing is christmas morning, staying in pjs all day and eating cinnamon rolls and other goodies for breakfast 🙂 christmas music playing all day and of course opening gifts.

  45. My favorite family tradition is simply getting the whole family together for Christmas. The family’s so big that you can barely hear yourself think however I would never want a quite family.

  46. Decorating the tree together. And a month of celebrations, mine, my daughter, her best friend all have December birthdays, so we celebrate a lot!

  47. Awesome Seat! My favorite Christmas Tradition is our Annual reading of The Night Before Christmas. We read two versions, the traditional story then Mad Lib Version.

  49. My favorite christmas tradition is playing the gift game with my family, my brothers always find the funniest thing to put in the game

  50. My favorite thing to do is to drive around, looking at Christmas lights. I love to see my son’s face light up with excitement.

  51. Fasting on 24th whole day and when it gets dark looking outside for golden pig (old tradition from my homeland!) also we do both my country and us christmas, so we do 24th eve and 25th morning 🙂

  52. I love seeing the joy and excitement on my childrens face. its bring me to tears. I also love just spending time with family.

  53. Our favorite holiday tradition, that we started when our first baby was born, was doing 1 big thing to help other people. We want to teach our children that it’s important to give to those that might not have as much. The first year, we had our first baby, we bought a bunch of baby formula and donated it to our church, so that it can be given to mothers that need it. Our second year, we donated money to St. Jude’s for kids with cancer. This year (year #3) we’re going to give to a local fireman association. When our kids get older, we’ll let them pick how we should help out every year.

  54. I didn’t read the leave a comment box before I commented the first time so please ignore my other one. Our favorite family tradition is baking all kinds of traditional German Christmas cookies with my grandma, which is about to take place next week! I love that my grandma is still around so that my girls get to be a part of this tradition too!

  55. I love seeing the kids faces on Christmas morning. Santa doesn’t wrap his presents so it’s fun to see how everyone reacts to what they get at the same time.

  56. Before I was married, my family would always watch “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (animated version) while we were putting up the tree on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Now that I am married with a child of my own, I am hoping we can find some new traditions for our family 🙂

  57. Both of these products look great but the cheveron would be amazing here in Colorado where currently it is a “balmy” -10 degrees. Would love the coco lounger would be great too though since our old swing isn’t working right and baby #3 is almost here.

  58. My favorite holiday tradition is decorating…from putting the lights on the house to hanging the stockings and decorating the tree, I love it all!

  59. Favorite holiday tradition? It’s a sort of year-round thing. My husband and I get a tree ornament as a souvenir whenever we visit another town together. So our tree is covered with travel memories.

  60. for the last 8 years I have put up a “christmas net” in our apt. it captures the twinkling lights and ornaments without the mess of pine needles and chopping trees down. the jury is still out on whether my daughter thinks its cool to be different or odd and lame.

  61. Growing up my favorite tradition was waking up early on Christmas Eve so my sister and I can help my mom prepare tamales for dinner that evening. Yum!

  62. my favorite family Christmas tradition is going to church on Christmas eve and then opening a present when we get home. tony l smoaks on rafflecopter!

  63. We love playing family games on Christmas Eve and waking up Christmas morning to see what kind of Nutcracker Santa left my daughter. He brings her a new one every year. We also love having a big Christmas breakfast and talking about how grateful we are for having our family and home.

  64. My favorite holiday tradition is decorating our Christmas tree. We always decorate the day after thanksgiving and is just so much fun to watch my daughters excitement as I unwrap ornaments and her repeating that this one is now her favorite.
