So I feel as though I should post but don't really have anything significant to post about so I thought it would be fun to post about some of my family Christmas traditions and hear others traditions! People call me a scrooge cuz I don't really like Christmas music especially if it's playing Halloween night! That's way too soon. It shouldn' t be played until Dec. 1st-same with lights and trees being put up but I guess I can't control everything right????
So I'll share my favorite family traditions that I hope to pass on to my children one day!
1-Every year my mom makes gingerbread houses and we get together and decorate them then after the season is over we can eat the candy. When we were little we'd cake on the candy so we'd have awesome candy to eat....now it's all about decorating and making them look cool.
2-Every year we get our favorite kind of cereal. When we were little that was our favorite thing because we didn't eat much sugar cereal until we got a little older so it was like a treat to us.
3-We always have awesome stuff in our stocking-like jewelry and stuff like that. The stocking's always been my favorite to open because of what Santa put in it...such as swedish fish, sour patch kids, oranges, etc.
4-When we were little we'd do 12 days of Christmas to a family and every night come up with a poem (I think my mom usually came up with it) and then we'd go deliver the item. It made us think of someone else instead of ourselves.
5-We usually go to Festival of Trees and my favorite part is always the gingerbread houses and the little booths that sells stuff that's homemade. That's where I get a lot of Christmas gift ideas from.
6-Robbie's mom always makes them pants every year and that's the one gift they get to open on Christmas eve and then they wear them Christmas day! I love that one!
7-One Robbie and I have started last year was to buy different houses and stuff for a village to display somewhere during Christmas. This year we found some really cool ones at the DI for really cheap!
So I'm sure there's more that I can't really think of right now....but that's some of them that make me enjoy Christmas. I'm sure there will be more over the years as well. So what are some of your traditions???
