Once you have kids get an advent calendar! I had one growing up, it’s one of my favorite Christmas memories. It was so fun counting down to Christmas every night and getting a little piece of candy or whatever. I loved it.

I also love decorating my tree with ribbon. I do ribbon first, then lights, then ornaments. It looks very pretty, especially if the ribbon has glitter.

Also, LOL at the Hanukkah Bush!

BiancaBee33:  My fav xmas traditions are some of the more active ones.  Maybe incorporate ice skating, snow shoeing, or even doing an xmas lights walk in your neighborhood.  It’s nice to have a tradition that gets you out of the house and moving.

A few of our traditions:

 – We decorate our (real) tree while listening to Christmas music and drinking wine or eggnog.

 – We always read “The Night Before Christmas” on Christmas Eve – if we’re with his family, we make his  dad read it to us. If not, then we read it together.

 – We go ice skating

 – We do a holiday event of some sort – light show, ice sculptures, etc.

  – I make a yummy, so unhealthly breakfast casserole in the crockpot, so it’s cooked and hot on Christmas morning.

 – We open our gifts from family and each other as soon as we wake up on Christmas Day.
