Friday Five: Christmas Traditions

Christmas traditions vary from family to family and from regions afar. I've been pleased that my oldest son's wife AA loves to be with our family for Christmas, though I don't think we do anything out of the ordinary. It helps that DC has one brother and two sisters to liven up our home.

Since I finally decorated the Christmas tree and have started baking Christmas cookies, I am thinking of Christmas only being one week away.

So for this Friday Five, tell us five things about the traditions in your family. Think of
  • traditions you always do
  • traditions you always cook or eat
  • traditions you would like to start
  • traditions you would like to discard
  • anything about your family Christmases
Please leave your comment linking to your blog with the formula I never can write down, which you may find by looking at this other Friday Five.


  1. New computer, no Word installed yet, please visit, sorry no link, Merry Christmas!

  3. Thanks for hosting Jan.

    I, and took Jan's invitation down a different path.

  4. Oh, I would love to play this one! Alas, we are getting on the road in under an hour to head out of town for a Christmas shower for our son and his fiancee. Maybe I'll play when I get back (grin!). I'll look forward to reading all about your traditions later. Blessings!

  5. Hereare my reflections...I hope I don't have a discouraging word...but please let me know. I missed you all the last couple weeks!

  6. It is so good to think about Christmas for a while. I have been Advent-y too long! I played over here.

  7. I wrote much more than I expected about Christmas traditions. I even posted a recipe for almond shortbread!

  8. We made it home just as the snow started to fly... here's some things from my home.

    Merry Christmas!
