What are your holiday traditions?

We put the tree up the day after Thanksgiving. I sit down w/ my kids whenever poss. to watch Christmas themed movies from that day until christmas. We also bake christmas cookies. And read as many Christmas themed stories that we can find, as well as playing christmas music on the cd player, and the piano. (No we are not the Waltons, we just love Christmas. lol) We spend Christmas Eve w/ my hubby's fam. and then mine, and Christmas day w/ my parents. Oh and my kids all get one big gift from us, toys from santa, and clothes and stocking stuffers from Mrs. Claus.
