    Favorite tradition is cooking my grandmother’s sugar cookies for Christmas Eve dinner with all the Ehlert. It’s a tradition that was passed on to me the year before she died.

    My favorite tradition for the holidays is gathering all of nieces and nephews (on both sides of the family) and having a pajama party! We decorate the tree, watch Christmas classics, bake cookies, drink hot chocolate, eat popcorn and stay up until will all just give out! We all pile up in the living room in our PJ’s and fuzzy socks and enjoy just being together, spending time together in a simple way!!!!

    Our favorite Christmas tradition is watching a Christmas movie every weekend in December, drinking hot cocoa with a fire going, and cuddling on the couch.

    Each year when I was little my grandma would give her grandchildren the traditional socks and underwear and a $5 gift certificate to Mc Donalds. There would also be a giant candy cane hiding in the tree for each of us. She expected us to go sledding and then go to Mc Donalds after to eat and warm up. She passed away 8 years ago, but I now carry on the tradition with a little twist. My children now get a scarf or hat to go sledding with and they still get that $5 gift card for Mc Donalds. I also hide the candycane in the tree and it is the first thing they look for on Christmas morning. Their gift and Gift Card is left on the tree for them each year and they always ask how Grandma LadyBug leaves us presents from heaven. :)

    My favorite holiday tradition is looking at Christmas lights on Christmas Eve with the whole family on our way home from the grandparents house.

    My favorite holiday tradition for my famiy is on the night of Christmas Eve. We a all of gather at my grandparents house to eat gumbo (we live in Louisiana) and everyone gets to open one gift and then the kids are sent to bed to await Santa. Now that I am an adult, it is wonderful to see the the excitement and anticipation in the eyes of the kids every year.

    My mom was a single mom with five kids, but she always made Christmas magical for us! We always got a new pair of pajamas and slippers to wear to bed that night, followed by milk, cookies and popcorn for the reindeer! Then we’d read “The Night Before Christmas” followed by the Bible story of when Jesus was born.

  8. Chels says:

    Not only leaving milk and cookies out for Santa, but spreading reindeer food throughout the front and back yards (to ensure that the reindeer see our house and steer Santa in our direction!). We make the reindeer food (lots of oatmeal and glitter) the morning of Christmas Eve and just before bedtime we sprinkle it all over outside making the snow even more beautiful!

    My favorite holiday tradition has always been lighting the Chanukah candles with family. The glow of the flames, the chanting of the blessings, and the display of the menorah in our window all mean it’s officially winter.

    My favorite Christmas tradition hasn’t been passed down. It was started 13 years ago when Tony and I were just dating and it has continued to grow with our little family. For our first Christmas together, I cut out and hand stitched a Christmas stocking for Tony. The following year, after we were married, Tony used his stocking as a template and hand stitched a stocking for me in a different fabric that complimented my personality. We continued the tradition with our 4 children. Every time we added a baby to the family we made a special trip to the fabric department and picked out material. The stockings are usually a combined effort. Usually I cut and pin the stocking and Tony will stitch the sides and then I will come in and do the tricky parts of the white cap. This year I actually added hand painted (yes, my hand lol, pictures to come) personalized stocking hangers to the mix. All of the stockings are different and special and one of a kind, just like our children. That little patch work is a perfect representation of our family. I can completely see continuing this little tradition with our grandchildren one day.
