We decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving while listening to Christmas music.

My sister and I get together and make a ton of homemade pierogies.

Every December 1st I give my son a small gift to kick off the 25 days of Christmas. Last year it was handmade superhero ornaments....I haven't decided on this years gift.

Elf on the shelf. Its the one holiday thing that doesn't annoy me.

I hate stuff and clutter, so any thing that makes a mess or takes up room annoys me. I think that is why I love elf on the shelf - she moves around my house so she's never in the way

After Thanksgiving, we decorate the tree, my mom and I bake Christmas cookies, and the whole family goes to look at lights :)

Thats great ! Where do you go to look at lights ? Around the neighborhood or is their a place that makes a display?

I was thinking about starting elf on the shelf with my two i have a 5 yr old and 16 mth old but i think the 5 yr old would really care about it

My Mom always did a new pair of pj's every Christmas Eve and we were allowed to also open 1 gift that night and we'd stay up watching christmas kid movies and having snacks in the living room in front of the tv with our new jammies on. :) I miss those days. :)
Since Im a mom, I just usually let my son open a gift on Christmas Eve night and we watch some Christmas stuff as well. Havent really gotten into too much more of a 'tradition' yet though. :)

My mom did the new Pj's with the three of us too they were matching and she always took a picture of us near the tree I miss those days too ! I do the new PJs with my two boys now too but they dont care much just yet so i do a small toy with it too.
