On Christmas Eve we always bake sugar cookies with my kids for Santa, then we usually go over to my Grandmother's house to open some presents and have dinner with all of my father's side of the family. We actually usually split up Christmas Eve, a little while at my Grandmother's place and a little while at my husband's grandmother's place.

We don't have any particular traditions, but we always without fail celebrate Thanksgiving with all of the relatives on my mother's side that live in the area. This usually comes to at least 60 relatives! Christmas is just spent with friends.
Thanksgiving day everyone come over to my house. Christmas eve my we all get together at my sisters house. Christmas day my daughter comes over we open gifts, eat, lounge around and enjoy a quiet peaceful day.
Well Thanksgiving we always have in my home. Then on Christmas Eve, we always go to visit my brother and his family. On, Christmas Day, its usually quite unless someone's wants to visit and eat a bite.

Thanksgiving is a toss-up. If I'm working, my son and I squeeze in a meal when we can. This year I'm off and we're going to Mass. to spend the day with two of my sisters and their families. Christmas is always spent at home in the very early morning so Tim can open presents. Then if I'm working he sometimes goes with me. At least we have our breakfast and tree together. My family usually has a get together either the weekend before or after.

Hi everyone! I thought it might be fun to post your favorite holiday traditions for the wintertime! Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, New Years, whatever you celebrate...post here and what your favorite family traditions are.
Last year I started a Thanksgiving tradition of cooking thanksgiving dinner for all the coast guard guys/girls that weren't able to go home for Thanksgiving (they are from all over). They come over to our house and watch football and play PS3 while I make dinner.
For Christmas, Robert and I go from the 20th through New Years to North and South Carolina to share the holidays with his family. He has a large family so there are a lot of family parties at different houses. I always put up our Christmas tree the day after thanksgiving instead of doing black friday and enjoy christmas music and decorating. I've done this with my family every year since I can remember.
Happy Holidays everyone!
