Just looking for some ideas and wondering what your favorite Christmas traditions are? I'm saying this as we're baking up a storm for goodies to deliver to friends and family with Christmas music ringing through the house. :)

Hi Heather! If I can save one person from that fate, it is more than worth the pain I felt that day. By the way, my daughter doesn't like horses. Hmmm I wonder why! :-}

I agree with Heather regarding cutting down a tree. My only caution is NOT to sit behind the horses onl the hay ride...remember a working mule is a farting mule. It was really rank! :-O

That is a wonderful idea! I love that as a tradition! Both, visiting senior citizens and lazing around opening jewelry and eating prawns all day! Sounds like a damn good day to me!

We watch March of the Wooden Soldier EVERY year. This is my daughters first Christmas and we're excited to include her in our traditions.

Definitely reading Twas the Night...too many times! Also watching the old school Christmas shows that we watched when we were little. On Christmas Eve everyone gets to open one little present from Mom and Dad before going to bed.

I love baking cookies for santa while sipping on some hot cocoa. I also love the snuggle time as we read Twas the Night Before Christmas each Christmas Eve. I also enjoy wrapping gifts, stuffing our son's stocking and making the house magical with my husband after our son goes to sleep for the night on Christmas Eve. I just love this time of year! :)

Going to a local tree farm and cutting down a fresh Christmas tree. Next year my twins will be old enough for us to go on the hay ride they have on the weekends.
