    We always got PJs on xmas eve, too!

    Aw, I like that! Maybe incorporate a drink into the decorating tradition. I can't have eggnog any more. Maybe hot chocolate or spiced apple cider. :)

    Quoting candycrush:

     We have to have egg nog while decorating the tree. And Christmas music of course.

    Joanie's Christmas sounds amazing...there is nothing better than music with family !

    I am with Chuck on the favorite being Thanksgiving due to the lack of pressure.

    So My favorite ritual is for Thanksgiving. I started it ten years ago... I write a thank you card for each person that sits at our table for Thanksgiving !  Everyone gets a card right before dinner...and I thank them each for something special. My son since he is four...he will be coloring a picture in each card :)

    I'm not sure we'll have time for it this year... depends on the kids' work schedules:

    Painted sugar cookies, often with friends of the girls, usually 2 afternoons. One baking and the other decorating.
