My Favorite Christmas Traditions

November 28, 2016

  1. These are some great traditions! White Christmas is one movie I always have to watch to make it feel like the holidays for me. Thanks for sharing these!

    I love these traditions! We love watching nothing but Christmas movies all December long!

  3. Kim Munoz says:

    So much fun! We open one present Christmas Eve and its usually a new pair of pajamas! LOL And we have the inlaws over for Christmas Vacation and eggnog. We watched ELF last night and will be having another movie night next weekend too!

    • Aww I love that!! My aunt always has us wear matching pjs when we’re at her house for Christmas! Christmas Vacation is one of my hubby’s favorite Christmas movies. And I hate to admit that it’s been slowly growing on me over the years of watching it with him haha.

    White Christmas is one of my all-time favourite Christmas movies as well! One year I was away for work in December and hadn’t had the chance to watch it with my family but they had it on the plane on my flight home and it made me so happy!

    I love all of these traditions! Christmas Vacation & Charlie Brown Christmas are my favorite Christmas movies.

    • Christmas Vacation is one of my hubby’s favorites… And it’s slowly been growing on my the past few years. I honestly don’t think I’ve watched the Charlie Brown Christmas movie since I was a little girl! I’ll have to watch it this year. :)

    This was so much fun reading! Love your traditions! Ugly sweaters to decorate the tree – that is awesome! And I love that you get to open one gift on Christmas Eve. Here in Germany we open all the presents on Christmas Eve – but I love the American tradition as well!

    • Isn’t it?! The best part is when over half of the ugly sweaters end up being pulled from my mom’s closet. ;) And that’s what we used to do with my mom’s side of the family! All the presents on Christmas Eve, then Santa’s gifts on Christmas morning. I love either tradition. :)

  8. Casey Fossett Powers says:

    We have to watch Charlie Brown Christmas a million times :) Great list of traditions for your family!

  9. Shannon Marie says:

    We have a lot of the same traditions but I love the sweaters whie decorating!

  10. Jessica Bradshaw says:

    I love hearing about other people’s traditions because everyone celebrates differently. Love the throwback photos too!! So very cute!

  11. Charlotte says:

    Awww, what sweet family traditions <3 I love baking cookies, listening to Christmas music, and also driving around looking at lights. I just love everything about this time of year!


  12. Neely says:

    We always go look at lights with cocoa and see home alone in the theaters!

  13. DearLyndsey says:

    These are great traditions. We love to see the lights every year with our to go mugs of hot chocolate. I love this time of year.

  14. Katie Arnold says:

    Watching White Christmas is definitely my favorite tradition! We used to watch it while decorating the tree but now that my sister and I aren’t home, it tends to be the Christmas morning movie. :)

  15. i didnt grow up celebrating christmas but i love everything about it. i love your traditions with the family.

  16. What a fun “opening presents” on Christmas day thing! We just open all at the same time :)

    • It’s a lot of fun, and our record was 6 hours one year. We had to take a breakfast AND lunch break haha! When we had Christmas with my mom’s side of the family, we would all open them as fast as we could, throwing the paper into the air. Basically our present opening traditions were on opposite ends of the spectrum!

  17. You and me both! It’s such a magical time of year. <3
