Happy Holidays to everyone and thanks for stopping by. For many this time of year is crazy as we run around looking for the perfect gifts for our family and loved ones so why not take a minute to catch your breath.
Family and traditions are a big part of the holidays for many. I know growing up my family always had 2 traditions that we followed every year. The first was on Christmas Eve we always had a dinner consisting of 7 fishes. The second was that my sister and I also got to new PJs on Christmas Eve.
In my husband's family the Christmas traditions always consisted of his grandparents spending Christmas Eve at his house so they were there in the morning to see him and his sister open presents from Santa and getting a new ornament for the tree each year.
Today my husband and I have our own children and we are passing on our own family traditions to them. Every year our 3 daughters (ages 5 and 3, yes my youngest are twins) get a new holiday ornament, a pair of PJs on Christmas Eve and not only do my daughters' Nana and Grandfather spend the night at my house on Christmas Eve but so do their Great-Grandparents, Aunt and Uncle, and their 2 cousins (ages 6 and 4). Yes, it gets a little crowded but it's a lot of fun and the whole family is together. Everyone comes over around 3 o'clock, we have a buffet style dinner, open presents etc and then on Christmas morning Santa leaves presents for all the children.
