Dear Fellow Friends,
Considering that the holidays are right around the corner. I figured that in this blog post I would talk about some holiday traditions. Some holiday traditions that we have are the night before Christmas my entire family gathers around the fire in our Christmas pajamas drinking hot cocoa. My mom would read to us The Night Before Christmas. Also on Christmas Eve my parents let us open one Christmas present. Those are some traditions that my family has on Christmas Eve.
Some traditions that we have on Christmas Day are my siblings and I go downstairs and see who can open their best presents to the least liked. The best part about that tradition is that no one can cheat. So every year we never know who will win. Also another tradition is that my siblings and I go outside and we all have a race to see you can build the fastest igloo. Another tradition that we have is that we all stay in our pajamas all day until our family comes. We also watch The Christmas Day Parade on the television. Those are some traditions my family has on Christmas Day.
Some traditions that my family has before Christmas but in the Christmas season is we go ice skating every year. Until last year when I broke my leg ice skating. We still go but my mom skeptical about it. We also get our own mini gingerbread houses and see who can decorate theirs the best. My mom and I every year make a bunch of Christmas cookies in Christmas shapes. On Black Friday my mom and my older sister and my poppy go out Black Friday shopping and we stay home and play out in the snow with my dad and have really cool snowball fights. A little after Thanksgiving we go cut down our Christmas tree. This year my mom was kind enough to let my brother and I get our own Charlie Brown Christmas tree.
Those are some great family traditions that my family has done for many years and hopefully many more. Those are also traditions that my family does throught out the holiday season.
