    Every year we celebrate the holidays with a massive buffet of random potluck food. I totally love how we never have a traditional dinner. We have Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Italian and Indian dishes. Then we finish off the night with the very popular secret Santa gift exchange, which ends up I like to call it, a game of strategic gift stealing 😄

    My favourite Christmas tradition is having my children hang their very first Christmas ornament on the tree. The kids are 26, 23, and 20 now. Even if the tree is up and decorated, it isn’t finished until those three items have finally been hung. One year, the middle child couldn’t make it home until the New Year. We kept her ornament out until she arrived. Only then was the tree finally finished!

After eating, and once everyone has settled, we begin our loud, raucous version of BINGO. Winner gets to pick one of the gifts. The best part, is that the gifts can be virtually anything; a box of chocolates, The Osmond Family Christmas CD, ornaments. It’s all in fun and just for fun.

    My favorite holiday tradition is gathering people who would otherwise be alone on the holiday. I have a houseful of “strays”, who over the years have included lots of servicemen and women far from home, elderly people, and just anyone we can find who would like to be part of our family for the day. I cook lots of food and we eat, drink and be merry so no one has to be alone or missing their far-flung families too much and everyone gets a homemade gift to take home. Some years the house is bursting at the seams, and I always get so much joy. It’s the best gift I can give myself.

    My favorite has been passed down many years. Every Christmas Eve we got to open one Christmas present and it was always brand new pajamas (usually flannel). Mom would have fresh sheets on the beds, then we would have a warm bath and wear new pj’s to sleep in before Santa came. Well I went to visit my daughter one Christmas and she had new pj’s for my Christmas eve gift and I surprised her with her own…. so no matter how old we get the Tradition has been passed on!

    I love so many of the holiday traditions, but every year I tell my boys (who hate having photos done) that my Christmas gift is a family Santa photo. This way they have to go and we all dress in our funny Santa/Grinch/whatever hats. I hope some day we’ll continue with the boys’ wives and our grandchildren.

  261. Leslie Golding • December 7, 2015 @ 12:12 PM

It is beautiful and goes back to many years of Family Christmas dinners shared among us all. Many have passed on but the memories have stay! And they are passed on to my Grandchildren with stories
    of days gone by.

  269. jennie • December 7, 2015 @ 12:15 PM

    My fave holiday tradition is going skating downtown with the family and getting hot chocolate after.

  270. Jenn Day • December 7, 2015 @ 12:15 PM

    My mom started this tradition when I was small. Every Christmas Eve we were allowed to open a gift, this gift was a new Christmas Tree ornament. The idea being, when we grew up and moved out, we would have our own unique ornaments to decorate our tree. The memories overwhelm me every year, when I pull each one out of its box. I love this tradition so much, I started with my own family 21 years ago with the birth of my first child.

    My favorite holiday tradition is the whole family going to a local Christmas tree farm. We park in the parking lot and wait for the next wagon ride into the bush, we go and pick the best tree we can find, we go and pay for our tree. Then we go and find a available camp fire and we roast hot dogs and marsh mellows, after the children had enough, we pay tag in the Christmas tree bush, be careful of the stumps that are cut too high, after that, if they’re still hungry we sit and roast some more dogs or marsh mellows, then it’s a ride on the wagon back to the parking lot. It’s so beautiful at this Christmas tree farms.

    My favorite tradition is Christmas Eve!! Everyone stops what they’re doing at supper time, we all sit together, eat, drink and laugh and listen to my dad tell stories that we’ve never heard! The best part is we do it together and we leave “issues” at the door, it’s the one night of the year it’s about being happy and together celebrating!

  448. Joanne Dufault • December 7, 2015 @ 3:16 PM

    I don’t have just one favorite holiday tradition. The Christmas season is my favorite time of year because:

    Baking – It has been many years since I’ve had the opportunity to bake for the holidays. I am having a great time getting back into holiday baking this year.

    Christmas movies – every December, I watch as many of the Christmas movies as I can. New or old, I love them all.

    Christmas music – I have Christmas music on the radio everyday in December, or I am watching and listening to Christmas music videos.

    Gift – I am a giver. I get more enjoyment from giving than receiving. Most of the gifts I give are handmade by myself. I love watching the joy on the faces of loved ones when they open the gifts I made or bought for them.

    The best and most important tradition is when family and friends get together. Those are the times I treasure most.

  570. Cheryl Adame • December 7, 2015 @ 7:04 PM

    I have lots that I love but my favorite is when we all come together at my parents’ (we are blessed to still have them–they are in their young 70’s and full of life) and sing songs (completely off-key as we never had lessons). I have two sisters and one brother and we gather with our families and they enjoy laughing if they are not singing with us. It’s wonderful!

  571. Claudia • December 7, 2015 @ 7:05 PM

  582. Sam Viner • December 7, 2015 @ 7:35 PM

    My favourite holiday tradition is late night holiday board game time. We are merry, we feast, and then we sit down to get aggressively competitive about the purchase and trade of railroads and utilities, Monopoly-style. It is a testament to our loving bunch that the bitter team feuds haven’t torn us apart – luckily the love and holiday cheer is stronger than any slanderous cheating accusation!

  583. Andrew Farinha • December 7, 2015 @ 7:36 PM

    Getting home after mass, sticking cloves into the ham for baking,everyone gets into their new pyjamas and then the final check of the Christmas stockings….Same every Christmas Eve

  584. connie • December 7, 2015 @ 7:39 PM

    Our family loves to put up the Christmas tree while listening to Christmas carols. We drink hot chocolate and eat homemade ginger snap cookies. It is so relaxing and wonderful to see everyone together and getting into the Christmas spirit!

    My friends of around 20 years always go to Swiss Chalet for the festive special. My husband and his parents have a feast on Christmas eve and go to mass for caroling. My husband and I will also be starting a new tradition on boxing day as we got married on the 26th last year-this holiday will be our first anniversary!

  594. Sophie Hughes • December 7, 2015 @ 8:09 PM

    My Dad playing Santa and handing out all the presents.

  595. Dar • December 7, 2015 @ 8:14 PM

    Our favourite holiday tradition is a silent “auction” my mother-in-law sets up every Christmas in their basement. She spends all year collecting different weird and wonderful books, knick-nacs, kitchen gadgets, etc at garage sales (or if we’re very lucky, some homemade preserves from her own stash). Then we get a certain amount of time to put our name under the items we want. When the time is up, if we’re the last person to bid we get the items. The adults don’t exchange gifts, so this is a fun game where everyone walks away with something they want.

  596. anna • December 7, 2015 @ 8:17 PM

    My favourite tradition for xmas is the family playing tombola. Which is very similar to Bingo, but more fun.

  597. Yvonne • December 7, 2015 @ 8:17 PM

    My favorite tradition is typical..waking up early on Christmas morning to see the joy in my son’s eyes when he opens his presents, cooking my family ( including the dog) a hearty dinner, watching a Christmas movie ( National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is my fave) then going to bed early so I can get up early the following day to do some Boxing Day shopping 🙂

  598. Ed Green • December 7, 2015 @ 8:18 PM

    I love the tradition of putting lights and decerations outside your home. It is so wonderful to drive along a street with lights on many homes. At night coming home I feel happy. Thank you to all the people that put lights on there homes.

    My son and his wife and I get together each Christmas morning to open our gifts. Then he makes us breakfast – this year waffles with the new machine they got for a wedding present. Afterwards, they will spend the day with her family and I will spend the rest of the day quietly by myself or will go out to an afternoon movie

  604. Linda • December 7, 2015 @ 8:26 PM

    And my favourite tradition? There are too many to chose from, maybe the fun of finding all of the goodies in my Christmas stocking. Or filling others’ stockings.

  615. Ronald Riedel • December 7, 2015 @ 8:52 PM

    the tradition in our house is to visit neighborhood hospitals and nursing homes taking some small wrapped gifts that we can afford to hand out to the elderly and the kids who are in hospital for what ever reason. We plan for this every year by putting aside a little money every week until december. Each of my children my wife and myself make the small sacdafice of giving up things throughout the year. Our lives have more meaning as a family because of it and our children learn a very valueable lesson in human kindness.

  616. JL • December 7, 2015 @ 8:52 PM

Santa is there to see the kids, and there is a hay ride tour of Balgonie to see all the houses lit up for the holidays. It gives my family a chance to wish neighbours and friends a Merry Christmas.

    In addition to our family celebrating together every year since I was born on Christmas Eve and opening gifts at midnight, getting my grandmother tipsy is pretty fun. She gets really happy and giggly. Up until a couple years ago when my son was still young enough to believe my favourite would be baking home made chocolate chip cookies for Santa and placing them on a special Santa plate with cut up carrots for the reindeers and milk in a Santa mug. It’s special set used just for Santa every year.

    Every year we play pranks on each other and we duct tape one present for someone to open. We make sure to put the duct tape on in strips so that it’s harder to unwrap it. It’s always a big laugh, even when it happens to me. And it gets our whole family laughing and enjoying the day. We also always do Christmas baking together before Christmas. But that’s less exciting.

  746. Stacey Nieuwenhoff • December 8, 2015 @ 7:25 AM

    My favorite holiday tradition is music…digging out the cds and singing in choirs, caroling…yes, we still do that some places. Bringing the good things about the season to light, joining with others to lift our voices, uplifting others and ourselves and, in some cases, bringing a little cheer to an otherwise sad heart. It doesn’t matter what language we are singing in, we are expressing joy and hope. I have experienced all of this and am so grateful for the power of music.
