  1. What great prizes! I love holiday traditions (new and old)! Some of my favorites are… Read Hilary Knight’s “Twelve Days of Christmas” and look for every single item on each page (especially Reggie the Racoon’s funny antics), make pecan pies for both my family and Daniel’s family, host our annual White Trash Christmas Bash, and spend lots of time with family and friends!

  2. I have two favorites : ) Decorating the tree…I know that seems cliche but my mom and I turn it into an event by decorating it….and then spending a week or so rearranging it. My other favorite is a new one that I started with my husband in which we pick out ornaments for each other each year : ) Yay Christmas!!!

  3. My favorite family tradition has to be feet washing! Every year on Christmas Day we wash each other’s feet as sign of humility and love for each other, we pray as we do this act of love. Jesus washed his disciples feet and He was the greatest of them! It starts with my dad washing everyone’s feet from youngest to oldest, starting with my daughter who is 1 year old to the oldest in the family who is 72.

  4. Our annual “snack food” smorgasbord on Christmas Eve…chips/dip, cheese/crackers, nuggets, pizza rolls, meatballs…you name it!!

  5. My daughter love pickles and received a beautiful little pickle ornament for Christmas one year. It wasn’t until about a decade later that I learned of the German tradition involving the Christmas pickle. The mother of the family holds the pickle ornament back when the Christmas tree is decorated. At some point before Christmas she sneaks the ornament on the tree. The first person to find it, gets a special treat. We do this every year now.

  6. I love driving around a particular neighborhood that tends to go all out to look at all the amazingly beautiful lights and decorations.

  7. Christmas morning breakfast. Ever since we were kids we would have a pancake breakfast with our parents and grandparents. Enjoy this more than opening gifts.

  8. Congrats on the anniversary! Favorite holiday traditions are: preparing the thanksgiving stuffing at my mom’s house, watching the Macy’s parade, decorating the Christmas tree, and watching Christmas movies everyday in December with my kids.

  9. My favorite holiday tradition is our families Cookie Bake! We have so much fun cooking all day long and making boxes for all the kids families! We listen to Christmas music..make regular and gluten free cookies and the kids play and do crafts! So much fun!

  10. Hmm.. I think my favorite tradition is baking Christmas cookies! (shocking, right?) When I was a kid, my mom would make tons of cookies, and we’d spend an evening, driving around delivering the cookies and looking at Christmas lights.

  11. Gathering with family and just enjoying each other’s company! Seeing and tasting the different dishes and/or baked goods everyone will bring! We also watch movies, play games and even sing together. I love my family! πŸ™‚

  12. Mindy and I have gotten into the Advent calendar… we have a little wooden house with the numbers countdown on the little doors. Mindy opens it every morning to unveil a clue to where the “gift of the day” is at. Now these gifts are all Dollar Tree gifts, but she LOVES them. I think she enjoys trying to figure out the clues to where the gift might be most…but none the less…it’s become a tradition for us… can’t wait for December 1st this year…
