Every family has their traditions on what they do during the Christmas season. For my family as soon as it was December first we went Christmas tree hunting and had it up and decorated the same day or during that following weekend. I had a cute advent calendar where I moved little stuffed Santa from pocket to pocket, a day closer to the big day. A few days before Christmas my parents and I would make dozens and dozens of cookies with Grandma’s home made cookie and frosting recipe. Christmas eve I would wait for Santa to come and eat his cookies and drink his milk but I always ended up falling asleep on the couch. Christmas day we would get our coffee and hot coco out. I would get to open my stocking before my parents woke up and as soon as they were awake we could take turns passing out gifts to one another. Opening each gift was super exciting, it didn’t matter what I got to be honest I like the surprise. After getting ready we would venture out and go to my grandparents house for a great Christmas feast and the family gift exchange. Grandma would make her famous rice cakes and rice ball desert treats. We would start a fire, play board games, song karaoke and enjoy each others company. It was always fun.
Hope you all have a great holiday season! What are some of your holiday traditions?
