What are some holiday / Christmas traditions, you and your family do every year? :) 

I put an orange in everyones stockings... you must eat it before opening the presents under the tree.
We make cookies every year, before Christmas, for us and Santa. 
We put out our homemade cookies, milk and some carrots on Christmas eve.
We read a holiday book on Christmas eve together as a family.
DH and I, get some "alone time" in on Christmas eve after the kids have gone to bed. lol.
We buy 1 new ornament every year.

Each kid gets a new ornament.  We bake cookies to leave for Santa.  We go to church on Christmas Eve even though we don't go any other time.  The kids get new, matching PJs after church and I take their picture under the tree before they go to bed.  We have birthday cake for breakfast on Christmas morning.

Dhs family always puts fruit in the stocking, but I didn't like tradition so we decided to nix that one. I can't think of any we do every year. It seems like every year we're at a new place... After this year I think things will calm down, and we'll start some new traditions.
