we do a few little things that are traditions in our home:
1. everyone gets new pj's on Christmas eve.
2. All gifts from Santa are wrapped in red paper with white bows.
3. We have family movie night and watch It's Christmas Charlie Brown!

What are some small, simple things you do each year that you feel are traditions your kids my carry forward?

New pj's on Christmas Eve.
Watch A Christmas Carol(1951 Alastair Sims version), How the Grinch Stole Christmas(animated one), and Charlie Brown Christmas, and A Christmas Story.
I read Gift of the Magi by O. Henry.

I've been meaning to start the new pjs thing for years and haven't. I've also been meaning to do family pictures for years. Determined to do that one this year.

We usually open one small gift on Xmas Eve, but I won't be doing that this year because so far as I know I'll only have my mum's gift to open. Shaun and I got a video camera between us and we did agree to get each other a little something to open, which I did, but so far as I know he hasn't done any shopping and I know he hasn't got any money really anyway and he bought the camera. I have had my secret santas but none were wrapped so I couldn't save them for Xmas.

We go to my aunt's house on Boxing Day for a buffet and a family get-together.

We go to Shaun's mum's for New Year.

We used to play board games on Christmas Day afternoon (Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, that sort of thing) but haven't done since Daniel was born because it would just be impossible - a tradition I'd like to reinstate in future years.
