my favorite things when I was younger in colder climate was to go sledding, skating on the ponds, and talking my friends into getting our photos taken with Santa. Usually I LOVE to bake but this year I am struggling with getting in that mode due to work and the warmer temps hitting our area. Not the best cookie baking weather.

My Civitan club sells luminarias which are very popular here in New Mexico on Christmas eve. I always buy a few dozen and decorate our house and my parents. They are so pretty. For those who don't know, they are lunch size bags, filled with a bit of sand and a votive candle - which usually lasts throughout the night.

Every year for the past 15 years (many more I can't remember) the Christmas Tree is on lobby has been a food tree. The resident share canned and non-perishable foods. With the help of a couple of my neighbors, we load my car on about December 20th and I deliver everything downtown Minneapolis to a charity place called Mary's Place. Along with our Christmas tree we also have a menorah to celebrate our Jewish residents.

Lois - Minnesota

Indian Proverb - When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.

The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

Love wasn't put in your heart to stay - Love isn't love until you give it away.

We reach out to more people dealing with hunger.
At work we increase our number of food pantries to serve more people in need.
This year we will have an emergency food pantry each week in December.
We have special gifts our volunteers made for the families.

As children marry new family traditions emerge. Christmas Eve I spend with my son and family, and Christmas Day I spend with my daughter and family. For several years I go with my daughter and family to a ski resort in northern Minnesota. Another family friend and her family join us there. Neither my daughter nor I are skiers, but enjoy just being there. We all gather on Christmas Day evening in the main lodge for dinner. I am the elder and the youngest is 7 months old. It is a most delightful time and I especially enjoy the playing game.

I have my own private tradition of decorating my own Christmas tree. My ornaments are either ones I have brought in my travels, given by special friends or hand made, Many of those special friends have passed so the ornaments really have a special meaning and bring back lovely memories.

Usually the New Year Day brings my children and their families together to toast to the New Year.

Great traditions so far gang. I can wait to read some more every day. It gives me ideas of traditions to try. We can't have a real tree because of our cat. Now that we have a rabbit, we need a table-top tree. So instead of loading it with unimportant ornaments, we only put up hand-made ones that my mother or I made. There are only a few regular ones that go up because they have sentimental value.

We always have Christmas lunch at our house :)
My husband and I prepare everything together and his parents come over.

This year we gave up the store bought advent chocolate calendars and made our own. Each day will reveal a Christmas related activity to do as a family -- today was attend the Santa Claus parade :)

We always go out together and look for a Christmas tree in the woods. Tie a ribbon to it and cut it down around the 15th.

We're trying something different this year which we hope will become a tradition to us.
Christmas Eve surprise box. A box filled with goodies like new pj's, a movie, hot chocolate, a book etc. etc.. and open it when the sun goes down on Christmas Eve.

We have quite a few traditions but the first one each season is hanging the first two ornaments my hubby and I bought for our first Christmas together on our tree. It's always a special moment. emoticon

When I was a teen, my sister and I got our own ornaments to put on the tree. Before that, all ornaments were family ones. We continued to gather ornaments each year. Some are from places I have visited. Others have meaning during the year.

This year, I added a robot as one grandson loves them. One year it was the "lawyer ornament."

My children also have an ornament for each year of their lives. They take them when they marry and can put them on their own tree

We always enter a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day so that's the first 'holiday tradition' we celebrate each year, kicking off the 'month of holiday season' that some people call the Holi-month.

In the early 80's when I lived in Germany, I bought a Christmas ornament for what I thought at the time was an exorbitant price. It was a wooden skier about 4 inches tall with a scarf that was actually knitted and the cutest round red backside. Every year after I bought it, that was the first ornament to go on my tree. I was single then, and now my adult kids make sure that he's the first ornament on!

It's winter time and holiday season. What is a favorite tradition for you? Is it singing carols, decorating the tree, drinking egg nog, etc. Share a different tradition ever day.
