  • We get together in the after noon with my family and open presents. The adults do secret santa, so we open those gifts and then all the nieces and nephews open their gifts. Then we go to church together. After church we get together with Aunts, Uncles, and Cousin and have a big Polish Christmas Eve. It is so much fun and I am looking forward to it this year.

  • We go over to my MIL & FIL's house and open up most of our gifts on Christmas Eve (the kids open the rest of theirs on Christmas Day). We snack on hor'dourves

    We look at lights too, but haven't done that in the last couple of years--and usually do it a few days before.

  • Open one present. Dress kids in their new Holiday PJ's. Then off to bed. They're two and one, so I haven't started any real traditions yet.

  • Nada. I work either Christmas Eve or Christmas every year, so we do our Christmas holiday whichever one I have off.

  • We used to when the kids were young and at home. Now, they are adults and usually have plans with friends. So my hubby and I watch a movie and enjoy eachother's company. Then we see the kids on Christmas Day!

  • drive to my mothers house (100 miles), we usually have pizza for dinner, the kids can open 1 present, usually PJs, and watch for Santa on the news.
