Christmas is in 3 days!!! I can't believe that it's so close! I'm so excited, but I'm also not quite ready yet. ;)
Today I will be sharing some family traditions that are special to me.
--Each year, sometime in December, we have a family Christmas party. It's so much fun. We have something special for dinner. My parents put together a basket that's for everyone. Inside there's a movie, a game, snacks. We watch the movie that evening and also play the game while we have the snacks. Most years we do a gift exchange. It's a super fun night and one I look forward to each year.
--On Christmas Eve we do a family Christmas Eve service. We read from the Bible and my siblings and I play Christmas songs on our instruments and sometimes some of us will sing.
--Christmas morning is so much fun! When all of us kids were younger we used to always want to get up super early, but our parents made us wait to get them up until 7:00, so us kids would meet in my sister's and my room at 6:00 and do some fun things together until 7:00. Well, now just my two younger brothers and I do this. They come up to my room and we have fun until it's time to head downstairs. Once everyone is up we gather together and read the Christmas story. After that we open up our stockings. Next we have breakfast which is usually scrambled eggs and cinnamon rolls. After breakfast we open presents. It's a really fun morning. :) After present we just have fun around the house doing stuff with our new gifts and all. Then later in the afternoon we have an early dinner of prime rib and for dessert we will sometimes do Christmas cookies.
So that's pretty much our Christmas Day.
What's one of your favorite Christmas traditions?
