5 Family Christmas Traditions

5 Family Christmas Traditions

Spending time with my family at Christmas is my favorite part of the year. I love going home and decorating the tree, buying gifts for everyone, and most importantly, traditions. I know that most families have Christmas traditions, so today I thought I would share mine.

  • Every year, we all sit down together and watch Christmas Vacation. Last year, Gary and I started our own tradition with this movie – going to see it at the Alabama Theater as a date night!
  • We also go to the Christmas Eve service at church. This is one of the best parts of the season. We love getting together and trekking to church the night before Christmas.
  • When we were little, my sister and I always begged to open a gift on Christmas Eve and it eventually stuck as a tradition. Now, after we get back home from the Christmas Eve service, my sister and I open one present each.
  • On Christmas morning, my family all gathers around the table after we’ve opened presents and eat cinnamon rolls and breakfast casserole.
