  48. Bonny Dixon MacIsaac β€’ December 1, 2014 @ 9:55 AM

    My favorite tradition was giving my Uncle his oranges on Christmas. He passed away last January. It started after my mom died in 1977. I gave him two oranges each year since. One for him and the other in her memory. They found an orange back in 1944 in their lane on Christmas Day and thought Santa left it. Times were tough. This year after giving it some thought I have decided to keep the tradition going by giving the oranges to his oldest son. Merry Christmas everyone.

  49. Tina β€’ December 1, 2014 @ 9:56 AM

    Putting up the tree with all of the ornaments collected over time. From the ones my parents had from their first Christmas together 60 years ago all the way down the ones my kids make for the tree today.

    I guess I have a few traditions, but the one I mention, is our family get together on Christmas day! We start off in the morning with the immediate starting the dinner by putting old tom in the oven and then we settled down to open gifts, around 1 to 2 pm the rest of the family arrives and by 4pm we are all at the table for the great feast and by 6pm we are all passed out in front of the whatever we were doing! Happy Holidays!

    It’s funny because we’ve not set many ‘new’ traditions in our house. We really just roll with the punches for the most part here!

    If I had to name one though it would be on Christmas Eve when the boys get to open their Christmas jammies (generally fleecy and soft) and we all snuggle in for story time before bed.

    Since moving in together my boyfriend, son and I have started giving a Christmas eve gift. It’s always new pajamas and book for my son for that night and an ornament each since our new tree is still a bit bare. It’s a great end to a day that is usually busy with last minute work and gift errands. The last piece to the tree and snuggling under a blanket with a new book. I love it because it’s our special moment as a new family.

    My favourite holiday tradition is leaving an extra place setting at the table at Christmas Eve for our Christmas Eve dinner. This symbolizes those who have left us, coming back to break wafers with us……we pass a blessed wafer around. Everyone takes a piece and then shares their piece of wafer and hugs with everyone else while we say ‘merry Christmas’ . Pieces of the wafer are left at the empty place setting. It symbolizes a welcoming to those deceased and those who have no place to go Christmas Eve. I always feel my father sitting next to me at that plate. I feel quiet and sad but also very joyful!

    My favorite Christmas tradition is actually on Christmas Eve. It’s tradition that each person in the family gets to open one gift that night, that one gift is always new pjs to be worn that night to bed and throughout Christmas morning. This has been done every Christmas as long as I can remember and will continue when I have a family of my own!

    My Favorite Christmas tradition is the reading of a book by my Mother who passed away from Cancer. The book is entitled “A Christmas Carol”. Christmas is a special time when we all gather as my mother was given the book by a family member and it had the ability to tape yourself reading. My niece and nephew were very young when she passed a few months later and this is a way for them to at least know what she sounded like. For me, I can see her smile and her love in her eyes when she taped it so she would always be a part of our Christmas. Christmas is the birth of Christ but it is also the time of year when my mom’s voice makes her feel right there and not just a wonderful memory.

  278. Kathy β€’ December 1, 2014 @ 12:25 PM

    My favorite Christmas tradition is Christmas eve being off and baking with my daughter, all of us being together going to church together then visiting a couple of friends then go home and read the night before Christmas and sometimes a christmas movie while opening one gift before bed. We then go home sit around talk and laugh. When my kids were young we always put out cookies and mike for santa and carrots for the reindeer which we are going to do again this year for fun. Christmas morning we all wait for one another to get up and sit around the tree and open gifts. Then its the turkey dinner we all have together with somemore laughts. Family is what Christmas is all about and knowing what the true meaning is.

    We play ‘Bite the Bag’. You get a large gift bag, and everyone takes a turn picking it up using only their mouth. After each round you cut an inch off and continue to do this until only one person is left.

    Last year there was 2 inches of bag left when the winner was decided!

    **CAUTION!! Pulled groins are a distinct possibility!!**

Mom’s getting up in age (she’s 70 now)and she’s still putting on the dinner. Once mom is unable to do it, I’m not sure what we’ll all do.

    Our family tradition in our home echoes what my family did when I was growing up. It encompasses the whole ambiance of the season, starting with the first decorations going up both inside and outside the house. That way, on Christmas Eve, the tree and all the other Christmas lights are left on making Christmas Eve and Christmas Day very special. Our children have added their own tradition to this by being the ones who hand out the gifts Christmas morning so everyone has a gift to open at the same time.

    I agree with a few other people on here too: the advent calendar is a solid tradition in our house too! Both young and old!

    my favourite holiday tradition is that on Christmas morning, before anyone is allowed to open their presents, mom would make her “sunshine” muffuns, and we would all sit their and eat fresh out of the oven muffins. Ever since I was a kid, it is this moment we just sit and relax, there is no where to run to it, no where you need to be, just sitting down and happily eating your muffin with the people you love all around you. To me, this was the best part of Christmas every year.

    On Christmas Eve, we bake cookies, prepare a plate for Santa (homemade cookies and milk) and his elves (consisting of carrots, granola). After dinner, we ready for church or a reading from the Bible, tell stories about Jesus and his birth and tie it in with Santa visiting families across the world, and the meaning of gift giving.
    Before our grandchild goes to bed, we open one present each..usually a small momento of sorts in readiness for the next day.
    On Christmas morning, we put the fireplace on, Christmas tunes, and Poppa plays Santa, in handing out gifts. Afterwards, we enjoy tourtiere, eggs, toast, orange juice and look forward to sharing a great turkey meal with all the trimmings.
    If we are at our son’s home, we do the same thing there.

We are all in great moods, not tired and all pitch in to get the meal ready. It’s relaxing and fun! It is a great way to kick off Christmas Day with gifts and fun and then good eats and more fun!

  400. Kayla Adams β€’ December 1, 2014 @ 4:10 PM

    Ever since i was a child, my father would string white christmas lights along the floor to resemble a skating ring. Every year i grew up with this “skating rink” in my home and it has always been something i looked forward to around Christmas. Although it may be simple to go out and buy a pair of skates or rent a pair, it was always a fun tradition to “skate” in the house on our family skating rink. It sounds silly but to this day my dad still does it and it still makes me happy each year.

  401. erin feran β€’ December 1, 2014 @ 4:12 PM

  402. Linda Bleskie β€’ December 1, 2014 @ 4:19 PM

    My favourite Christmas tradition is putting up the tree. We put my grandmother’s star on top, she bought it in 1950. Then we decorate in vintage as we also have all of the decorations she used on her tree. When she passed away I inherited all of them and so my children who are now adults themselves get to see the tree exactly as I saw it as a child! Decorating is a family affair and we share stories of our favourites and we also have some that belonged to my mother in law so my husband gets to tell his stories too! Our friends always comment on how beautiful our tree looks as its not contrived with matching ribbon, colours, ornaments etc. It’s just a good old fashioned Christmas tree.

    The first Christmas I after both of my parents passed away I took my baby girl to The Netherlands to visit my Dutch family. They do not cook big turkeys there. They are not even sold in the stores and their fridges and stoves would never accommodate them anyway. We celebrated Christmas with the most delicious gourmet meal I ever had for the holidays. I have never cooked a turkey at Christmas since. One year we had lobster. It is so much fun planning our Christmas dinner now!

  436. Chalen β€’ December 1, 2014 @ 5:32 PM

    Favorite holiday tradition is this: On Christmas Eve we have dinner somewhat late, hang out as a family, playing board games or just chatting, then when it gets late we get on our pj’s, bring some mattresses or sleeping bags in front of the TV, and have dessert watching “Elf” (we’ve been watching it since the year it came out on DVD, and the year before that we watched it at the theater) until we doze off or finish the movie. Once the kids are asleep, we bring our Santa’s presents.

    Two things I love about the holiday season.
    First, seeing family and friends faces light up when they open gifts around the tree Christmas morning.
    Second, being outside under the stars admiring the lights on neighbouring houses, as well as my own. It makes the nights seem so much brighter.
    Looking forward to seeing my wife’s face light up if I can give her this beautiful Swarovski Stardust bracelet if I win it.
