What’s Your Favorite Christmas Tradition

Jessica Spending Time  With Her Dog As One Of Her Christmas Traditions

Christmas is just around the corner and it always gets me feeling a little nostalgiac. Between the holiday music that I remember playing in my Grandparent’s house, to the homemade ravioli we eat every year, some things never change. And I like it that way.

Our mornings are always pretty much the same in our house when it comes to Christmas. We start with opening presents, always taking turns. I remember being at an old boyfriend’s house for Christmas one morning. Everyone opened presents all at the same time. No one knew who got what and it was over within 3 minutes. I was baffled by it.

After presents, it’s the same breakfast every year. Our family is more into a savory breakfast with eggs, potatoes and sausage. Don’t get me wrong, I love this challah french toast my Mom makes. But Christmas morning is for sausage and eggs, always!

Once breakfast is over, it’s onto stockings. Why are stockings so fun? The dogs now have their own too at my parents. What do we think Pork’s going to get this year?

Our little routine is something we’ve been doing since I can remember. What are your Christmas traditions?

    Mine has to do with stockings as well! I FREAKING love stockings and opening up those goodies. We were always allowed as kids to wake up whenever we wanted and grab our stockings. My sister and I would open together in our room and ooh and awwwe over everything. Starting a tradition with my husband this year that instead of big gifts we’re going to fill each others stockings with little gifts for one another and open those by ourselves before or after family festivities. Very excited about it!

    One of my favorite Christmas traditions is after we open presents and eat breakfast, we all pile up on the couch and watch Christmas movies together all day! It’s always a fun bonding experience, and not to mention, relaxing!

    There’s nothing better than Christmas traditions! One of my favorites growing up was we got to open one gift on Christmas Eve, and it always was new pajamas to wear the next morning. My husband and I have carried on this tradition between the two of us, and we hope to continue to do so when our family grows one day!

    Just sayin’,
