What's Your Favorite Yuletide Tradition?

This week Better Recipes is hosting a Blog Giveaway For A Silver KitchenAid Stand Mixer just in time for Christmas. To enter all you have to do is leave a comment on their blog telling them one of your favorite family traditions during the holiday season. Deadline is midnight tonight! 

What's Your Favorite Yuletide Traditions?

Nancy: I think my favorite tradition for the holiday season is at the very start… I pull out all my light-up houses and start setting up the seperate villages throughout the house. I love setting it all up and creating the different stories to each scene. When guests come in they tend to walk around and discover the different villages and seem to almost put themselves into the story as they visually walk through the scenes that I’ve created. I love watching their faces as they discover each display!

Lucy: Our favorite family tradition for Christmas is staying up late on Christmas Eve to open presents just after midnight.

Brenda: Christmas Eve pyjamas! On Christmas Eve, one gift is allowed to be opened, and we all know it’s going to be pyjamas, which we love! Also, when she was little, our daughter would sleep under (beside) the Christmas tree with Daddy

Karen: We go to Christmas Eve Mass at 4:30 then everyone comes over for the evening of food and games.

Kristin: my favorite tradition is Christmas Eve dinner by candlelight with the children. We then read the story of Christ’s birth in the bible. To finish off the night, we drive around town looking at all of the lights and sing Christmas carols together. It is a wonderful and magical night together!

Stephanie: We love to ride around and look at Christmas lights and then come home and watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation!
