    • Rhondda Fanning /

      I haven’t been reading the blog properly . Just realised I have to comment traditions and special holiday memories . We have a very different Christmas here in Australia . It is hot , sunny and we have early sunrises , late sunsets and thundery storms after hot humid days .It is all about swimming and keeping cool . Life focuses around the pool , beach and summer fruits – watermelon , juicy mangoes and stone fruit especially cherries , peaches and apricots .
      We had a rule which I have handed down to my grandchildren . On Christmas morning you must stay in bed until the kookaburras laugh . By then Santa would have gone back to the North Pole – Australia is his last stop .
      ( By the way the kookaburras are up very early in summer -around 4am .)

    • “My favorite Holiday Tradition is … Christmas Eve supper with the Family and opening up one special gift each.. makes the children so excited for Santa to come. Baked ham and hash-brown casserole doesn’t hurt either lol

    • Barbara Willis /

      Getting together with family Christmas Eve.

  2. Flo Davies /

    This year I read that 95% of Americans celebrate Christmas. Sadly far fewer celebrate Jesus.
    My favorite Christmas tradition is spending Christmas with those who mean the most to me and knowing they share my Faith in our Lord and Savior.

  3. Kathy English /

    My favorite holiday tradition is spending Christmas Eve with the entire family. We have an early dinner, then church, then home to sing carols and enjoy each other. We’ve been doing this for years and it’s as close to a Norman Rockwell family as we ever get!

  4. “My favorite Holiday Tradition is … ”
    always decorating the house and we always dress up.
    No jeans.
    And we always cook a lot of food.
    so stop by.

  5. Kathi Martin /

    My favorite holiday tradition is Sunday afternoon before Christmas spending time with my whole family. We all bring different dishes of food. We eat, talk and just spend it together. Love the craziness of it all!

  10. Carol K /

    My favorite holiday tradition is making gifts for friends and family. My parents taught us that presents were more special if we made them ourselves rather than buying something.

  11. Getting out all my antique Christmas ornaments and decorating at least one tree with just glass ornaments, one with old pressed cotton and another with Victorian paper ornaments. I have so many that the trees never look the same from year to year.

  12. My favorite holiday tradition is celebrating St Nicholas night. Ever since my childhood I’ve hung my stocking on December 5th in anticipation of St Nick’s arrival. As a child it helped me and my brothers wait for the big day, and it continues to be a favorite holiday event for my now grown daughter. While I used to receive angel food and candied peanuts in my stocking, she receives gourmet chocolates. It’s amazing how St. nick knows everyone’s preferences!

  13. Christmas Eve service. I love the peacefulness of the church celebration of Jesus’ birth.

  14. Julie Milliron /

    My favorite Holiday tradition is ……
    You know I had to sit and think about this one, but it really is having the family all together. I get more excited about that than anything we do. We don’t always do the same thing from year to year.

  15. Linda Davis /

    My favorite Holiday Tradition is baking cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning

  16. Kristie Dowling /

    Making the Southern Living cake each year and visiting my family.

  18. My favorite holiday tradition is baking cookies with the whole clan!!

  19. My favorite tradition used to be jumping in the ocean on Christmas Day. However, my family moved to a national park in some 8000-ft mountains where it snows at least 7 months out of every year. I don’t think it would be wise to jump in the water out here.

  20. “My favorite Holiday Tradition is celebrating Swedish Christmas Eve when Santa knocks on the door and asks if there are any good children present before coming in with his bag full of presents. Then on Christmas morning the American Santa has been there and filled the stockings as well as leaving presents under the tree.

  21. Claudia /

    My favourite holiday tradition is to bake lots of delicious treats for the family. Such as cookies, cakes, pies and muffins.

  22. My favorite holiday tradition is two fold and always done together. It is all the family going to the children’s program on Christmas eve at church and then the family gathering on Christmas day.

  23. Mary Harrison /

    I love the patterns from LJ. I am teaching my granddaughter to sew for her AG dolls using LJ patterns. Her name is Taylor and she has even started to design patterns of her own. The patterns are so trendy and directions are clear and concise. Just love your website!!!!

  24. Sophie T /

    My favorite Holiday Tradition is decorating the Christmas tree.

  32. The gathering of my children and grandchildren on Christmas Eve to open presents. This year we tried singing carols, that was the funniest thing ever.

  33. Favorite holiday tradition: on Christmas morning my mini red dachshund always opens presents. This has been going on since she was a baby and she’s 15 1/2 this Christmas. It’s hilarious to see her tear into the packages that aren’t even her own, just like having an eternal 2 year old around the house. But she knows when it’s time and once we get back from church, she’s barking and yapping like a puppy because she knows she’ll get to tear into presents soon. Again like a 2 year old she doesn’t really care what’s inside but of course we always make sure the first one has Milk Bones in it for her! Seems like a silly tradition but it wouldn’t be the same without Heidi’s gift carnage.

  34. My favorite holiday tradition is getting to spend time with family. This year no one had to work Christmas day, yea!!! My mom is 98 so we cherish everyone we have with her!

  35. My favorite holiday tradition is driving around looking at lights on Christmas Eve, and going home and eating Chile con Queso.

  43. I’m a smocker and my favorite Christmas tradition is making smocked ornaments every year.

  44. My favourite Holiday tradition is cleaning the double boiler many times because that means my husband is making all his Hungarian desserts which contain custard. It is the only time of the year he makes these so although it isn’t easy to get all the cooked milk out of the creases the desserts make it worth while.

  45. Best ever tradition is making sugar cookies. The tradition started with my daughters and now has expanded to include my 6 grand kids too.. Soooooooo silly and sooooooo much fun!!

  46. Christmas for me is spending time with my family. Sadly, my husband has passed and all my children live far away; however, I’m blessed to have my elder sister, her husband and his sister, along with some nieces and nephews, living nearby. We celebrate Christmas with good food, good cheer and, best of all, good company.

  47. My favorite holiday tradition is spending time with all my family.

  49. Carole Schneider /

    One of my favorite traditions is Christmas stockings. It is such fun to fill them with fun and crazy items. As kids, the children seemed to look forward to them as much as they did the gifts under the tree. Now, as adults they still look forward to them.

When my daughters grew up and moved away from home, they would call every year to ask what temperature to set the oven at for cooking their own. They carried on the family tradition for their family and it became a new tradition for them to call me for the temp!

  64. Emy LeFevre /

    My favorite holiday tradition is singing the carols with my family.

    My favorite holiday tradition is answering the phone by saying “Merry Christmas”. My beloved grandmother always did it, then my mom, I do it and so do my children. It always makes me smile when I call family and they answer that way. As silly as it may seem, it truly brings a smile to my heart to hear those words when calling on Christmas Day. Merry Christmas grandma and thanks for the tradition!

  106. My favorite holiday tradition is Christmas Eve just with our kids. On Christmas day the grandparents are all here and it is chaotic with all the presents but on Christmas Eve they each get to open one present, which is always pajamas and a book. We read the Christmas story first out of a picture Bible and then they get to open the present. It’s so great because they all get in their pjs and quietly look at their new books. I love how just one simple present can bring them such joy.

  113. My favorite Holiday Tradition is …Making my ornaments! In college I was ‘broke’ so as a gift for my family, I made everyone an ornament. Now, 33 years later, the tradition lives on. I started out making 8 ornaments, this past Christmas I made 73. I try and do something each year that has meaning. Two years after our mother passed away, I used her last Christmas sweater to make small pairs of mitten ornaments, this year I made a small christmas tree made from wire, beads and buttons. I have many of her buttons so I chose at least one button from her collection to put in each of the trees. Great way to use up the stash, has meaning and helps to honor Mom, Christmas was her FAVORITE Holiday!!! Now, on to figure out what next years ornament is going to be!!

  114. Eating christmas dinner with my family. Opening gifts and laughing at the funny reactions! Hoping for more Christmases with my 88 year old mom!

Everything looks so white and peaceful at, or close to midnight.

  133. Jan Hooper /

    My favorite holiday tradition is our entire family attending Candlelight service at our church on Christmas Eve. My favorite moment is looking down our row at the end of the service while Silent Night is being played and seeing everyone’s lighted candles raised high towards heaven, both young and old alike. Everyone singing sweetly to the One this Christmas season is really all about. It gives me chills every time. 8)

  134. My favourite holiday tradition is hanging up the special made stocking that have each year embroidered on it along with a special character, the first year was Santa and his reindeer, to as the child grows up things they are interested in, one year ninja turtle in a santa hat, to the star ship enterprise in cross stitch with beads for lights. And each year as we bring them out we look back at all that came before. This tradition became even more special after we adopted a 7 year old girl and I started a stocking with her first Christmas with us, She had been with us for her 5th Christmas and after the stockings were emptied she sat there looking at her stocking with 5 years embroidered and 5 embroidered items on it. She started counting them and then said and next year you will put another one on here, I said, yes. She said, and the next year and the next year. Yes just like your brother’s. Her face just light up like a Christmas tree. She finally had a sense of belonging and continuity for the first time in her life and to think it all began with a Christmas tradition, hanging the stockings.

  135. My favorite holiday tradition is the family gathering at Christmas time and celebrating the birth of my Savior.

  136. My favorite Holiday Tradition is ordering pizza on Christmas Eve and letting the kids open one present. We never really had any “set” traditions when I was growing up, so I felt it was really fun and important for me to start some for my very own family!

    I LOVE designing and decorating the Christmas tree. I try to do something just a little different each year. I used to do more than one, but as I have aged I find one is about it…so it has to be special.

    But my newest tradition is making many, many doll clothes for grandchildren, friends and family. Your patterns have inspired me! Thanks!

    Christmas cookies seems to be our big tradition. Lots of discussion regarding which recipe, what ingredients, which is Santa’s favorite and each grand child gets to pick out a batch they want “most”. Then everyone takes some home. When my husband was working, we made them for the office and boy scouts so seems funny to only make one batch of each variety!

  165. My favorite Christmas tradition … hmmm, there are so many. I love baking Christmas cookies and making other holiday foods like fudge, cheese logs, and so on. But I think probably my very favorite is crafting gifts and ornaments. Every year I try to do some of each if possible.

  166. Carol Bartlow /

    We are from Scandinavian decent and have always opened our presents on Christmas Eve. After eating together, we distribute the gifts and then Papa reads the Christmas story from Luke, Grammy (me) prays a short prayer…because everyone is anxious to open presents. Then the youngest to the oldest grandchildren open presents in turn. After the children are finished, the adults do likewise. I love the order and honor that we show one another that is absent when there is a “free for all”.

  167. Laura Turner /

    I learned to sew by sewing doll clothes. The cash and materials outlay was small and if mistakes couldn’t be corrected you started over. It allowed you to really hone your sewing skills. I also had a little Barbie clothes business one Christmas to make extra money.

    As a child, we anxiously awaited Santa’s arrival on Christmas morning. As my father’s parents were of German descent, the Christmas tree was brought in and decorated by my parents after we had been tucked in bed. We awakened to a beautifully decorated tree with gifts underneath. As we grew older, we helped in bringing in the tree on Christmas Eve to decorate.
    My best Christmas memory was at 4 or 5 yrs of age, my parents had built a new home, and how they ever accomplished it, I’ll never know… they moved us in on Christmas Eve. We had been at Grandma’s and fell asleep during the ride to the new house. I remember being herded speedily in and down the hallway to the right, BUT,as we entered, the house was dark except the blazing Christmas tree shiny with dripping tinsel. What a sight! But we were tucked in and fast asleep again quickly.

  177. My favorite tradition is picking out an ornament each year for my children. These ornaments represent something significant for the year to each child. When they are out on their own, they will take their ornaments with them and they can share them with their own family and remember all the wonderful times from their childhood.

    My favorite tradition is setting up the nativity. My birthday is Dec 9th and the evening after it we get out the box with the nativity set and unwrap and set up the figures. It’s pretty old now as I started collecting the papermache figures on my 6th birthday when I got Mary, Joseph and Jesus in the manger at a Sunday School Christmas gift swap. One of the wisemen still has a faded price sticker from 55 years ago on the bottom….10 cents! The cardboard stable is priced at 1.00. Some things have certainly changed, traditions DON’T!

Then the branches are decorated with candied cherries, each of which will hold a small candle. Then we give it away to some unsuspecting person on Christmas Eve, with a small container of homemade rum sauce!

    Now that we have little ones again, ages 7,6,4,3 and another on the way, we’ve started a yearly tradition of making Gingerbread houses.

    I would say my favorite holiday tradition is getting together with the grandkids on Christmas eve and letting each one open 1 gift of their choice from family.

And, of course, we watch movies and track Santa.

    • Ruth Albright /

      Christmas at our house is more family instead of gift giving….but when we do gift, my favorite are the hand made ones. As our children grew I look back and the gifts we still have are those that were thoughtfully made :).

  271. My favorite tradition began this year. I have 3 grandaughters in first grade this year reading. One read the prayer before dinner. Another read prayer after dinner. Another read the story of the Peppermint Pig which is a tradition we have participated in for years. This helped the girls feel really involved. Three Tees would be great…. One for each!!

  272. My favorite Holiday Tradition is to have plenty of candy canes on the tree. Whenever a guest comes (including the UPS delivery person) they get to pick a candy cane from the tree.

We grip about it when “Chestnut” forgets to move and the kids get upset, but it is so much fun when “Chestnut” gets in to mischief like when he got in to all the first aid supplies and had bandaids all over himself and everywhere, plus he put Vaseline all over his face. My daughter thought this was the greatest thing ever….But the best was when “Chestnut didn’t move for three days and I (MOM) had to give “Chestnut” a stern talking to and threaten to send him back to the North Pole for sulking around the house because Santa was making him wear the Team Elf Football Jersey this year….My daughter thought that was the solution to getting him to moving again and boy did it work….He got in to all kinds of mischief after that…eating Jell-o in my frig, and putting sticky Christmas bows up all over my kitchen…SIGH! You can see the Elf on a Shelf is a big deal at my house!!!

  276. Enjoy the company of the people around

  277. Terry Knuffke-Tolbert /

    Our Christmas Eve pj party! Every year my daughter and I shop Black Friday and buy flannel for the whole family…all 27 of us. I make pj bottoms for every one and the embroider t-shirts to match.
    I send out the ones to those who can’t be with us like my son in Army and my daughter and son-in-law also in the army. The rest of us gather together on Christmas Eve we open our pj’s and wear them. Young, old, babies and grandparents.
    Then we change clothes once again and go to midnight mass to celebrate the birth of our Lord.

  278. My favorite Holiday Tradition is spending time with friends & family on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day celebrating Jesus’ birth. Attending Christmas Eve service, giving each child an ornament for the tree every year, baking cookies, crafting gifts for friends, and sharing Christmas meals.
