Not too much that has been passed down. We've kinda got in the habit of eating manicotti for Christmas and I MUST use blue wrapping paper!

We have quite a few.. on Christmas Eve everyone goes to someone's house for dessert, this year it's mine. Then everyone gets to open a gift, usually pyjamas and a book. Christmas morning after we open our presents we go to my parents for a big Christmas breakfast with my parents, siblings, grandparents, and uncle. Then we all have Christmas dinner at my grandmothers. Boxing day we have dinner with my MIL and SIL.

Not too many. We do our Advent calendar every day in December and talk about the *real* Christmas story. We almost always have dinner at my dad's house on Christmas Eve, then come home to put out milk and cookies for Santa. Rachael usually leaves a note for him too. Then both girls get new pajamas to wear to bed, and Daddy reads "The Night Before Christmas" to them. FIL comes over early and cooks breakfast on Christmas morning. That's about it...I'm always on the lookout for new, fun traditions to start though. Darnit, next year I'm gonna have an elf on the shelf!

We always go get a real tree from this Christmas tree farm my parents, brother and I used to go to as a kid. The kids help pick out the tree and we cut it down and take it home.

We also have a tradition of going to my aunt's for Christmas dinner every year and getting new PJ's from Santa to wear on Christmas night

Getting our tree, decorating it, guess those are traditions now.
Elf on the Shelf is now a tradition.
Candlelight service at church.
Christmas Eve we have always gone to a party... when we lived near my family, my uncle had a big party. Now that we're here, dh's grandma has a party (it's also her birthday). We read Twas the Night Before Christmas and The Christmas Story. Oh and we put Baby Jesus in the manger.
Christmas morning, the kids wake us up, they open their stockings before anything else. We open the rest of the presents. Have a big dinner.
Guess that's about it.
