Christmas Traditions

Just a few more days to go before the big day comes. You know what I mean, Christmas.

For everyone in the world celebrating this special day, they have traditions old and new, that they practice when celebrating this special day.

So the very late Weekly Question will focus on sharing (old and new) Christmas traditions that you and your family have:

What are the Christmas traditions and you and your family practice?

My answer:

We don’t have really set traditions. Before we have the Noche Buena, we pray and the children sing “Happy Birthday, Jesus”. The the children open some of the gifts that they have. The others are opened in the morning.

On Christmas Day itself, the children open the remaining gifts before we go to church and go to my husband’s family home to have lunch. It usually is a potluck affair. After lunch, there is exchange gifts among the children.

This year though, its going to be different. My mother-in-law is in the province to celebrate Christmas with her mom, hubby’s grandmother, who is quite advanced in age.

My late father-in-law’s sister invited us to go to their house for lunch on Christmas Day. We are still thinking about it since the kids prefer we just don’t go anywhere.

  2. Thanks for sharing your Christmas Traditions. We recently created a podcast on this subject, in the Generations podcast “Three generations of Christian women share their thoughts about different issues and aspects of life.” We have some traditional ones like the Christmas pj,’s that are opened on Christmas eve, and Jesus’ birthday cake, retelling of the Christmas story. But there are some unusual ones like, Misfit Christmas, and upside down Christmas tree, a pickle in your tree, and some wonderful traditions to share with the kids. We also included some recipes. Thanks so much for sharing yours if you want to listen to ours here is the link to the podcast. http://godswordcollectibles.blogspot.com/2008/12/new-podcast-inspirations0016-christmas.html

  6. I can’t believe it’s just a few more days before Christmas. I’m afraid I’m caught in the Christmas rush. I still have to do some last minute shopping tomorrow. Wish me luck. 🙂

    It’s wonderful to watch children open Christmas gifts. This is the best part of Christmas for me. I just love how Yohan’s eyes light up as he discovers the content of each present.

    Wishing you and your family a memorable Christmas celebration.
