@NurseMandie:  +1 to cutting down a tree at the Christmas tree farm 🙂 I LOVE real trees and refuse to have fake! Also it has to have colored lights not white…

We always open a present on Christmas eve, and leave homemade cookies out for Santa.

We also have a huge turkey dinner on Christmas day.

Sounds pretty similar to yours 🙂

On Christmas Eve my immediate family gets together and decorates cookies that my mom makes. So much fun!

We had lots of Christmas traditions that I haven’t really carried into my adult life for various reasons.  I always loved decorating the tree growing up, and still love baking Christmas cookies!  For me the most important tradition is the big family meal we do with my aunts/uncles/cousins on my dad’s side.  There’s about 30 of us and there is always so much laughter and fun times!

My housemate’s mum makes amazing cookies, muffins and cakes, so normally we just eat those while watching Christmas movies haha. Today it’s apple and cinnamon choc chip muffins, I’ll Be Home for Christmas and Love Actually 🙂

I love Christmas Eve mass! I’m also a sucker for decorating the tree.

My mom, my sister, and I get matching Christmas PJs (my little brother gets PJs too, but his don’t match ours lol) that we open on Christmas Eve. We’ve done that every year for 20+ years now, but recently my sister & I have started our own little tradition of taking a bunch of goofy pictures in our PJs with santa hats on. I’m not sure how or why it happened, but last year we also incorporated some fake mustaches lol. I look forward to the photo shoot every year! Laughing

I enjoy the family aspect. And the morning church service is always warm and lovely…

… but I also really love the food! Cooking it, sharing it… it’s great! If I cook, we always have goose. So much more traditional!
