Do you have any Christmas traditions? Some people have different traditions on Christmas and even on Christmas eve. You might open a present on Christmas eve, have a big dinner with family, or even just sing around the Christmas tree. On Christmas almost every family has different things they do to celebrate they could be doing it with exchanging presents, family dinners, and even just decorating their house.
Some families have trouble finding the “correct” or “perfect” gift for that one person. So when that person gets that gift they might act like they like it but, they really don’t. Some people just think about what they are getting and not what they are giving. So what exactly is a tradition that has to deal with getting and giving presents? Well most families have everyone open one or two presents on Christmas eve and then everyone opens the rest on Christmas. Some other families have only the youngest person open one gift on Christmas eve. Then another percentage of families open all of their presents on Christmas eve so that they can just focus on making food for family dinners the next day. There is also a percentage of families that open all their gifts on Christmas day. As people are going on and on about weather you should open your presents on christmas day or Christmas eve, Other people just do both so that their kids have more fun getting to see what they have got from their parents one day then, seeing what they got from Santa the next day.
Does your family go all out on making the best Christmas dinner? Some families go really big on Christmas dinners. Making ham and sometimes turkey. Mashed Potatoes, mack and cheese, green bean casserole, corn, cranberry sauce, and many more types of food. Some of which might be or sound gross but, to some families that’s what they do for one of their Christmas traditions.
Do you decorate your house for Christmas? Most families just go around the house and put lights up, some just put up their Christmas tree, and, others go all out. By going all out I mean putting up crazy decorations, lights everywhere, and, Christmas trees full of decoration. As people go out and drive around, at Christmas time the most common thing they will see is Christmas lights on houses, (sometimes making them look like gingerbread houses) big, tall, short, and sometimes even long decorations filling up the hole yard. Even just in some houses people put up decoration. So even if you don’t see something in their yard doesn't mean they aren’t decorating inside the house.
Do you have any Christmas traditions? Even if I mentioned one of your families Christmas traditions doesn't mean that it can’t be special to you and your family. You might have a different Christmas tradition that was not mentioned. That could just mean that your’s is extra special for your family. Some family traditions for Christmas might be exchanging presents, having dinner with your family, and even decorating your house.
