Get wonderful ideas for Christmas traditions to
celebrate with your family and friends.

Putting the Baby in the Manger
Each year I decorate the house for Christmas. We put up the tree, hang the wreaths and of course, put our Navity scene on display on our mantel. I place Mary and Joseph in the stable along with the animals...
The Gift that Keeps Giving
We all take turns opening gifts at our big family Christmas gathering. The whole extended family is usually in attendance (about 45 people). About 10 years ago, it was my Aunt Shirley's turn to open...
New Pajamas for Christmas
It was a tradition when I was growing up that we all got to open one gift on Christmas Eve. Mom and Dad always picked out the gift we could open and every year my sister, brother and I tore into the gift...
Chicken Soup for Santa

The Peppermint Pig
As long as I can remember our family has celebrated the tradition of the Peppermint Pig at Christmas. In the old days the pig was a symbol of health, prosperity and happiness. So it became tradition...
Pictures with Santa
My kids have had their picture taken with Santa every year since they were babies. I can still remember the first picture of my oldest, Cindy, laying on Santa's lap when she was just three months old. I can...

Crazy Christmas Socks
Every year since I was a little my Mom has filled a stocking for me and each of my siblings. We get candy canes, small gifts and chocolate, but the most unique gift that we each receive every year in...
Hiding the Christmas Gifts
Hiding the Christmas gifts has always been a tradition of sorts at our house. My husband and I have three nosy daughters that like to snoop around for their gifts ahead of time. We've made it into a game...
The Gift of Poetry
Every Christmas, my family always wrote poetry for every Christmas present. Sometimes they were long, sometimes short, but always there was a helpful verse or two about about what might be inside! Continuing...
A New Spin on the Traditional Advent Calendar
Last year as an alternative to the traditional advent calendar I gathered 25 holiday books/CDs from my book collection and the library and put them in a big basket. Each night, my kids choose a book or CD...
Happy Birthday Jesus Cake
Every Christmas we celebrate the birth of Jesus by baking a regular birthday cake. We light the birthday candles, and sing the traditional Happy Birthday song to Jesus. It is a very concrete way for the young...
A Very Special Santa Coloring Book
We had a great tradition growing up and I will try to get a picture for you. We had a gianormous coloring book (about 3 feet tall) that we would set out for Santa every Christmas Eve. Santa would surprise us...
A Crafty St. Nicholas Day
December 6th is the day many people celebrate St. Nicholas Day, a saint that helped children and the poor. Some families leave their shoes outside their bedroom door for St. Nicholas to fill. One tradition...
