*We eat appetizers for our Christmas Eve feast. I can't remember the last time we had a big sit down dinner.
*My hubby and I and the kids wear matching Christmas pajamas. *see pics here*
*We open our presents with my family (parents and sister and her family) on Christmas Eve by taking turns, going youngest to oldest, one at a time. It takes forever but it lasts longer and then everyone can see what each other received. I love it.
*My sister and I get each other a crazy/funky/goofy ornament every year. I love seeing what she has found and I love looking for hers.
*The kids and Chad and I have our own little Christmas on Christmas morning. The kids have to wait until Chad and I are up and coffee is brewing until they can open anything. Stockings are always first.
*We head to Chad's dad's to have a HUGE Christmas morning breakfast. We always have egg nog pancakes, biscuits and gravy, eggs, bacon, fruit. It is quite the spread.
*Chad and I have never waited until Christmas morning to open our gifts....well...we did the first year we were married. Usually, a few nights before Christmas we have our own private gift opening. That sounds so dirty. This year I am hoping to last until Christmas morning....we will see how it goes. I can't promise anything.
Those are just a few things we do that might be the same at your house or they might be completely different. I would love to hear how you all celebrate the season! What are your favorite Christmas traditions??
