    We always open our gifts on Christmas Eve and our stockings on Christmas morning. I think it started back in the days when our Granny just couldn’t wait til the morning!

    We go out to dinner for Mexican food after Christmas Eve service. This has been my husbands family tradition for many years so I’m not sure how it started.

    When our children were young, they opened one gift on Christmas Eve, their Christmas pajamas. Even though three of our five children are grown, they still received pajamas each year, they now open them at our holiday gathering.

    Our children are all grown and have families of their own, but we get together for a candlelit dinner Christmas Eve. We each open one gift, and then spend the evening together.

    We have always celebrated on Christmas Eve with a big open house for all friends and family, then open our gifts latter in the evening.

    We have a fancy dinner on Christmas Eve with whatever family is in town, then open presents on Christmas morning and get together with family again later that afternoon.

    We sit around in a circle with our presents passed out and take turns each unwrapping one present at a time while the others in the circle watch and savor the fun of it all. It’s so nice to enjoy the experience and not race through it. 🙂

    We always have carrot cake with cream cheese frosting for Christmas. It started when the local bakery refused to bake our favorite flavor (pecan praline) during Christmas time.

    Creamed turnips has always been traditional food for Christmas Day dinner. Don’t know how it started but several unsuspecting people have have taken a giant serving, thinking they were mashed potatoes. Boy, were they surprised!

    We have several- my Grandmother knitted VERY BIG Christmas stockings for us, and they STILL MUST be filled! My Dad used to wrap pencils, tape and little notebooks for them, but that tradition has gone now, as has my Dad, but my mom still puts a little metal ornament in it with some “folding money” :-)…along with fruit and little wrapped gifts. We also used to make our holiday cards, and that tradition took a little hiatus until I started my stamping craze again around 2005. Since then we have been making them every year again! Love that part because we do them together.

    I am a breast cancer survivor. In 2001 I was beginning chemotherapy right before Christmas and knew that I no longer could make the dinner for the family that I had done every year for 20+ years. My daughter suggested that we meet for Mass on Christmas morning and then go the diner for breakfast. This has now become our tradition where we talk about what we are thankful for, the past year events, and what the future may be. Then we go to my daughter’s and open up the gifts that are under the tree (and in the back of the car ! LOL)
