    My favorite Christmas tradition is spending Christmas eve with family, when all of us sing Christmas carols around the piano.

    When my son started working in high school and we came to the first Christmas that we were not able to be with the rest of the family, we planned to watch a movie when he came home from the video store that he worked at that night. Unfortunately there were no Christmas movies left on Christmas Eve, so he brought home the movie “Misery” because it had snow in it. For the last twelve years we have stayed up after everyone else has gone to bed and watched that movie together. Odd, yes…but very special.

    We have a collection of Christmas movies that come out the day after Thanksgiving and are put away again in early January. Even though we have watched “White Christmas”, “Miracle on 34th Street” (both versions), “A Christmas Story” and “the Santa Clause” countless times, this is a very special activity for our family! I hope that it will be a family tradition that the girls will take with them when they have their own families someday!

    My favorite Christmas tradition came from my family of origin. Every Christmas Eve, my mom baked a “birthday cake” for Baby Jesus. Birthdays were a really big deal in my family, so it only made sense to celebrate Jesus’ birthday with a cake! This is a tradition that I’ve carried on throughout my daughters’ lives, and is a special memory maker as we celebrate Jesus’ birth.

    My favorite tradition was started by my mom when I was a little kid. We’d go to Christmas Eve service at church, then either out to dinner or to a nice meal at home. Then open gifts as a family. We do the same thing now in my own family. It’s been a great way for me to celebrate the birth of Jesus. (Plus we didn’t had to wait for Christmas morning to open gifts because we never did the Santa Clause thing! πŸ™‚
