    Our family tradition is to do lots of baking and on the morning of the 24th to deliver to friends and folks who do not get out to bring them a sense of family and make them smile. To us, Christmas is about time with family and friends and giving, not receiving.

    I started a new tradition this year. I have 6 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, with no birthdays in the summer. I decided to have my Christmas with the families at their home, nothing special, but me showing up with their gifts(for kids only). I was tired of my gifts being lost in the shuffle of Christmas and it gave the kids something new to play with during the summer months. I spend a lot of thought in my gifts and wanted to see that the kids would get some quality time with them. I will still go to the get together on Christmas eve for the fun, food and games with all the families. BTW, Christmas in July went over great with everyone.

    Our tradition is to make potato candy and lots of different types of fudge (peanut butter is our favorite). Also string our ornaments from the ceiling along the top of our walls. We have 7 rescue kitties and a tree has been put on the back burner for the last few years as they would destroy it.

    My favorite tradition since I was a kid is going Christmas caroling. It’s sad that tradition seems to be fading. I’ve started a new tradition with my kids – every year I stock up on Christmas cards when they go on clearance after Christmas. Then come December we do a cards and carols day at the nursing home – we sign cards to give to all the residents, and sing carols for them. I also take boxes of cards to leave at each nursing home for residents who want to send cards to their family.

    My favorite Christmas tradition was having family all gather Christmas Eve for exchanging gifts then each part of the family (daughter & her littles, son and his littles) would have their Big stuff the next morning. I always enjoyed watching the grands open gifts! The delight in their eyes 🙂

    My favorite traditions stem from my childhood where we celebrated Christmas Eve with my Swedish grandmother. My Mom & Grandma would prepare all of the Swedish food, and I would dress up as St Lucia and pass out gifts.
