What’s Your Favorite Family Holiday Tradition?
My family gets together on Christmas Eve. We have an early dinner and then the shenanigans begin. We are super competitive, so when we play games, we are in it to win it! We play the most outrageous games, from wrapping each other in toilet paper to seeing who can unwrap a Hershey kiss the fastest with ginormous potholder hands.
Whatever your holiday tradition is, the fact of the matter is, it’s rarely the “traditional” traditions that make the winter holidays the most wonderful time of the year.
It’s usually the special, made-up and a tad bit strange traditions that you and your family cherish each year. Maybe you make your family dress up in Christmas sweaters for a yearly family Christmas card, or perhaps you and your family have created a drinking game for the holiday movie “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and take a drink ever time the word “who” is said. (This could be quite dangerous). Maybe you create a unique scavenger hunt for your kiddos to wake up to every Christmas morning, or perhaps your family goes to midnight mass.
From the dorky to the bizarre to the meaningful, we would love for you to share your best winter holiday traditions with us!
