    Dashing through the snow, jingle bell rockin', and roasting chestnuts. We all have those merry memories of cozying around a fire, going door-to-door to sing carols, and building gingerbread houses. We'd love to hear your family's jolly ways!


    I'll go first:

    My mom loved to do a scavenger hunt on Christmas morning for us kids to go and find the gifts. She'd usually write these cute, rhyming clues and we all had a blast playing! There would always be this one super obscure clue that my mom thought was really obvious, and she'd finally have to tell us where the gift was located. Then, after presents were handed out to all, everyone would come over and we'd eat a big meal. And also this…

    One of our favorite family traditions is driving around to look at Christmas lights and decorations about a week before Christmas. The experience wouldn't be complete without hot chocolate too!

    I am with Kathryn.  Our family loves to pull out the lights the Friday after Thanksgiving and have the up and running with a Christmas sequencer that plays music and flashes lights to the toons.  Even my college-age sons love to join in the merriment of decking the house!

    My family members are dispersed through out the country & some even outside. So, few years ago we made it a tradition for everyone to visit paternal home and be together around the New Year, every year. We've been religiously following that for quite some time now and it feels great to see our beloved one's at-least once a year, get together and celebrate.

    This is how a standard Indian family reunion looks like.

    My Christmas tradition is watching "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Scrooge" (1970 Albert Finney, musical version). I sing along to the songs in Scrooge while I wrap presents or while I am baking cookies to hand out to my lovely neighbors as gifts. :)

    My favorite family tradition is staying home! We used to travel Xmas Eve & Xmas Day, but no more. Instead, we stay home all day in our festive pjs, make muffins and open gifts, and spent the day watching holiday movies, playing with new toys, and grazing on snack foods. The kids may sled on the lawn if there's snow on the ground. It is glorious.

    My favorite holiday tradition was being a kid and seeing a movie every Christmas eve. To be fair, I don't think we ever saw a good movie, because they were typically sold out, but it was still a lot of fun. Does anyone remember Mouse Trap with Nathan Lane? That may have been the "best" movie that we saw.

    When the kids were little, we did the drive around looking at light's thing. Since we had 2 cars, we developed a honking system for no effort, it's OK or awesome. These days it's all about watching Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story, careful or you'll shoot your eye out!

    @Greg Hanson - I did the same thing around seeing the Christmas lights growing up, and have now passed the tradition on with my 3 year old daughter. It is always the same; Happy Meal and Christmas Lights, which is how I did it when I was little with my parents.​
