Aside from the traditional holiday eve dinner and opening presents the following morning (or the equivalent) what do you do for the holidays?

Make a tour of the town looking at lights? Do the light show at the zoo? Ice skating? Nursing home? Gingerbread houses? Those sorts of things...

  • Christmas cookies are made (newer tradition), Christmas eve service at my church ( I LOVE the music), touring all the Christmas decorations around town, checking out all the bazaars/craft shows and we're going to start another by ringing the bell for the Salvation Army this year.

  • We have a "Christmas neighborhood" That does an amazing light display every year. We walk through that neighborhood every year, there's the festival of boats on our harbor, and then we have a beautiful fountain that does a dancing water show...at Christmas it's done with Christmas music, we like to go see that. I also love the festival of trees, and we usually try to see a live production of A Christmas Carol.
