Sorry, I forgot to add my holiday tradition (so I canceled my post above). First off I have to say WOW this year has FLOWN by. Can you believe we have all been doing this for a year already?! Secondly, my favorite holiday tradition is opening at least one gift on Christmas eve with my family here at home and spending time with my parents at their home (which seems so far, far away this time of year). :) Kel

Every year I look forward to getting my initial made of chocolate. This is actually a Dutch tradition and my parents carried it on here in Canada. When I got married, I also got one for my hubby and when the kids arrived they each got one too. I have you on my google reader and am also following your blog and will post a comment on my blog.

Hello! I think my favorite holiday tradition is wrapping gifts with my mom. We have some wine and gab away while my dad and the boy take the kids off for a few hours. Since my kids were born it seems that my mom and I haven't had a whole lot of that special one-on-one mother-daughter time, but every year for gift wrapping we catch up on everything and I remember why she is not only my mom but my best friend! :)

Lori said...

One of my favorite traditions is mom reading The Night Before Christmas on Christmas Eve. She has done this since I can remember! I am 44 years old!

Thanks for a chance to win!

Oh count me in! My favourite christmas tradition is that every christmas morning we have to have breakfast before we open any presents .... but not just any breakfast, pancakes and syrup. Not something we do every day, we keep it for Chrissy and everyone chips in to get it done.

Not long now .... only a couple more weeks! Happy blogaversary, its been a pleasure to pop by every week and see your awesome creations.

:) Marcia

Donelda said...

Ohhhh, I can't hardly believe that you have had your blog for only 1 year!! It feels like it has been forever!! Okay, my favorite holiday tradition is going out "hunting" for our christmas tree! We get a permit and drive out into the back country...and tromp around the snow looking for the perfect tree (like Chevy Chase!!) and we always bring a picnic. Sometimes it is fancy and sometimes it is just good ole peanut butter sandwiches ... but they taste absolutely awesome out there in the woods!!

Hey you. Love the new snowman look on your blog. Mike is in Montreal. Neither team is his team but I bet you can guess who he's not cheering for. Sorry. :P

My fave many of them, love it all but as it is almost trimming the tree time, I guess at the moment it will be that. Always the weekend nearest to Dec 1st I put trees in the childrens bedrooms, they decorate them with their own collection of ornaments, many were gifts from their godmother. We also decorate the tree in the sitting room and we play christmas music to add to the festive feel. It really is the beginning of christmas for us and we love it!

Congrats on your blogaversary my friend!

Hi there, I just saw your blog link on Kelly's blog. Congratulations on your blogaversary!!! What a great idea to have people share their favorite holiday tradition! I've enjoyed reading each one of them! My favorite Christmas tradition is sleeping in the family room with my DS with the Christmas tree lights on. It just amazes him that he never hears Santa come and go!!!

Annelies said...

My favourite tradition is my family getting together Christmas eve, having a nice supper, turning the tv off and enjoying each others company. Around midnight we take turns reading from the Bible about the birth of Jesus. It's a wonderful time.

Thank you for the opportunity to win. I have added you to my blog.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Congrats on your first Blogiversary!
I love the 4 weeks before Christmas, here in Germany it's Advent.
In this time we are baking little cookies, we are crafting many cards and little presents and my son is playing Christmas songs with his guitar.
I have put a link on my sidebar.

Opening gifts Christmas eve has to be my favorite tradition. Recently though my family has been coming to visit at Christmas and that's special since we live far apart and that's the only time of year that they get to come this way.

Thanks for the chance on your candy. I will be posting my own candy later tonight, so come and join!

My fav tradition is watching donald duck and his friends celebrating Christmas (it's a tradition here in Sweden. They air it on Chrismaseve at 3pm) and eating polish cheesecake. In case you didn't know we celebrate Christmas on the 24:th.

Hello! I would love to be entered into your drawing! I will post on my blog momentarily! As for my favorite tradition, my family gets together on Christmas Eve and we play games and open the gifts from each other, and have snacks. Then we still have our own personal ones and the ones for the kiddos from Santa to open on Christmas morning. Thank You!

Rina said...

I hope I'm not too late.

Our family tradition is, on Christmas eve. we gather around our tree with our three girls and my DH will read a story on Christ's birth or a Christmas poem titled "The Night Before Jesus Came...". Then we'll each take turns sharing one thing that we are most grateful for, before the opening of presents. Following on Christmas day, we will gather with family members & friends and celebrate Christ's birthday with cake, singing "Happy Birthday Jesus", pot luck, gift exchange, and Christmas carols.

Happy Blogaversary and I have linked your candy on my sidebar.
