ONE // Happy Birthday cake for Jesus
I started this tradition when my nieces were born. I wanted them to remember what the season was about, so every year, I order a real birthday cake, with Happy Birthday Jesus written on it & we sing the Happy Birthday song every year before we dig in. I love this tradition. I'll do it every year. (Which reminds me, I need to get my order in)
TWO // Old Fashion Crème Drops
My dad started me on this when I was little. You take one of these, smash it (& be prepared - its TOUGH. I use like a medal spatula) & put on a saltine cracker. Put in the microwave for just a few seconds where they become creamy & melty... YUMMM!!!! Makes me travel right back to childhood. (which reminds me I need to find these - not easy to do)
THREE // Christmas morning Breakfast
I usually don't make up a big breakfast. Ricky isn't a big breakfast person anyways. But on Christmas, I make it anyways. He rarely eats a lot of it, but its there if he changes his mind. (which reminds me I need to get stuff for biscuits)
FOUR // Christmas morning presents
Ricky & I usually have our breakfast & then sit in the living room floor with our dogs & bring our gifts out to each other. We're like little kids. He is always so good at spoiling me & I try my best to try & surprise him. Then its time to play with our new 'toys'... abet, usually something electronic qualifies as toys. Ricky usually ends up taking a nap & I end up watching Christmas movies.
FIVE // Family
We head over to my parents on Christmas for lunch or dinner & we open presents with my parents & my brother & SIL & twin nieces. It's always a fun time. I always hate when its over because I know its back to work the next day & back to 'life'... even though we typically still have 2 more Christmas celebrations AFTER Christmas. Christmas needs to be longer then a day... honestly...
What are your Christmas traditions?
