  • Christmas Eve we turn on and leave on all night ALL of the Lights in and out side and we connect to Norad and
    track Santa, we watch a Christmas movie and have a veggie/meat & cheese tray supper... We then put our cookies,
    milk, and reindeer food out and then we pull out the Santa Key and place it on the outside front door so that Santa
    has a way in..
    This yr : ( tho, our 9 yr old knows that we are his Santa, so our traditions for Christmas Eve will change a little...
    As for Christmas day, it's just the 3 of us... lounge in pj's, open gifts, put gifts call family, Skyp (sp)
    our over seas friends ( by way of the internet) then settle for a NON-traditional Christmas dinner and this yrs menu
    consists of Grilled Steaks and baked potatos with a Cheese,meat,veggie & dipp trays for evening snack and another
    family Christmas movie and then it's put our grandson to bed and Dh and I have quiet time to ourselves ;)

  • Having sex under the lit Christmas tree. I am serious. There is something magical about the colored lights and being naughty under the tree.

  • I love going caroling. And going out to see all the Christmas lights. But, I think that my favorite is having my whole family gathered in the family room in our jammies and listening to my husband read the Christmas story.
