Christmas Traditions

We've been talking alot about what makes Christmas "Christmas" for our family. We had a few things that we all agreed upon and each of us has specific things that are really important too...

  • Muppet Christmas Carol and White Christmas (movies)
  • Poppy Seed Bread
  • Christmas Eve Service

Blaine ~ pumpkin bread, rotating the treetop star through the kids, and delivering goodies to the neighbors.

Benjamin ~ stated above, but I think what really makes Christmas "Christmas" for him is playing his French horn in a seasonal music production.

Elizabeth ~ Sending out Christmas cards to family and friends, making a gingerbread house and making goodies for others.

Nicholas ~ Eggnog and people around to play games.

and Me ~ Sending out Christmas cards and writing the annual Christmas letter, making goodies for the neighbors and delivering them, (and I really want) to cut our own Christmas tree and decorate the house the day after Thanksgiving...

AND, we love receiving Christmas cards, letters and pictures from others!


  1. Love your traditions, they sound a lot like ours!

  2. I love the tradition of spending Christmas Eve with my lovely children and grandchildren and going to Christmas Eve service. Unfortunatly it doesn't look like that may happen this year. But God sent us this snow for a reason, so we'll just have to figure out his purpose.
    Love you all so much


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts! Abundant blessings on your day... Joanie
