I was thinking of starting a new tradition this year... My kids NEVER get sugar cereal except on vacation. Would it be too corny to wrap a box up for them every christmas? :)

Lisaleh said...

We make latkes and home made applesauce. The house smells oily and yummy!

Maryanne said...

Every member of my family get pajamas made from the same fabric to wear on Christmas Eve. My children are only little - I wonder how long it will be before they protest!

lauroar13 said...

Getting a stocking from 'Santa' even though I'm 24 and my brother is 21!! And the christmas day evening stuff-a-thon buffet. Nom!

Katherine said...

Our family has a fun tradition on Christmas Eve - whoever says "Christmas Eve gift" first to you gets to open one gift under the tree. Now that most of us live far away from eachother you know when that phone rings you better answer it with "christmas eve gift" so you can get the jump on the family!

KD-Quilts said...

My favorite Christmas tradition is making breakfast pizza to eat after we open presents!

Vanessa said...

It's Dungeness crab season in the SF Bay area, so we have a big crab feed for Christmas dinner!

Marlene @ KISSed Quilts . com said...

Melissa @ Happy Quilting said...

We love making Christmas Chocolates each year :)

Lynne said...

Wow, beautiful giveaway.

At our house, we have an "indoor snowball fight" every Christmas. We head to the basement, bundle up in our best outdoor gear, build forts at either end of the room, and throw giant marshmallows at one another. Loads of fun, and a great way to burn off that extra energy they have from being trapped inside all day during the cold-weather months.

Thanks so much, and have a great giveaway week!

Jennifer said...

we love dinner and church all together on christmas ever

Wendy said...

I hang up the kids' stockings in *my* room. Then, at a reasonable time (like, not 5am!) they all pile into bed with me to open them. It's a favourite tradition with all the kids, even though they're now 21, 19 and 18!!

deede said...

My daughter and I set aside one day of the week before Christmas (we both work outside the home) to take off and make Christmas cookies together for family and friends.
Now she has two sons (2 and 6) who have started getting in on the action! We have such fun and it's great bonding time.

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Jenny Bartoy said...

What a great giveaway! Thank you for the chance.

One of my favorite holiday traditions is our family celebration of the Winter Solstice: we make bird feeders with pine cones, we bake a cake, we light a candle and have a delicious feast for dinner.

Carey ~ Gypsy Thread said...

Until us "kids" starting having babies of our own, we'd always empty out our Christmas stockings while barely awake, in our pj's, crazy hair and all, first thing Christmas morning. Even though we were all adults we made sure to at least wake super early and head to Mom's house (if we didn't sleep over) earlier than anyone really wanted to be awake. Family stockings will have to wait until Christmas dinner this year.

Great fabrics, btw. Love the colors!

NinjaEema said...

I really love cuddling with everyone on the couch, and watching TV. It's nice to have the family time.

Taryn said...

I love our Christmas Eve family gift exchange. We have to be creative (no wish lists), so it is interesting to see what everyone gets each other.

We alternate between a Christmas where we travel to be with our families and a Christmas with our friends... this year it is staying home with friends: wine, cookies, pjs, movies, and board games and a big dinner. Looking forward to it even though I'll miss my family too.

Our Christmas tradition is that Dad makes a full cooked breakfast on Christmas morning - its fantastic, especially as most of the rest of the food for the day is cold given that Christmas in NZ is in the middle of summer!

Lindsay said...

One of our family traditions is to drive around, drinking hot chocolate in the car, listening to Christmas music and looking at lights. We've been doing it for as long as I can remember.

The Hungry Crafter said...

One of my favorite family traditions is making a nice warm Sugar Crumb Coffee Cake on Christmas morning!

lili said...

I have a friend who I've known since I was born. Every Christmas, her family put on a party and carol-singing night - where we all gather round the piano with candles and sing.

The tradition was always that the kids had to sing the first verse of "Away in a Manger" on their own - but as we "kids" have gotten older, the rule changes - first it was "still in high school", then "still in college", then "under thirty". Now it's "anyone who has ever been a kid at one of these parties".

Great fabric! We love to read by the Christmas tree every night before bed - so sweet!

susan mitchell said...

Love the orange fabrics!!
My favorite is the ornament exchange. We wrap an ornament and put them a in a pile. Everyone draws for numbers and that is the picking order. The first person picks one and opens it. The second picks an ornament and can then, before opening, trade with person #1 or choose to keep theirs and open. The third can choose person #1 or #2 or stay with theirs and so on and so forth. We do this at the extended family party and we usually have 25+ people/ornaments. The cute ones always trade hands a lot before the end lol

Cathy said...

Every year we load up in the car and drive down to the park to drive through all the lights they set up.

Eleven years ago, on Christmas morning, we woke up and our children sent us right back to bed. "We're making you breakfast!" "Oh dear," I thought. But every year since then, the kids have made us breakfast in bed on Christmas morning. It has become my favorite Christmas tradition.
