My Tradition on Christmas
This is our tradition now, my Uncle Jim comes every year to spend Christmas with us he comes on Christmas Eve.

Christmas Day

8am-9am We get up and look through our stockings yet even as a 23 year old I insit putting my stockings up

9am-9.15am Have a quick breakfast

9.30am-10.30am Christmas Presents time Uncle Jim joins us and we exchange gifts.

10.30am-2.30pm We just relax

3.00pm my Grandparents arrive, so more presents

4.00pm Christmas Dinner

5.00pm-9.00pm we chat and relax

9.00pm my grandparents leave

9.30pm-early hours in the morning we go to my other Aunt & Uncles for more presents and have a quiz and sing songs.

that's mainly it though last year we couldn't have the quiz but hopefully we will this year.

Sounds like alot of fun. Hey don't feel bad I still hang my stocking up at 30. I don't plan on stopping either cheesy

I'll be a hangin mine up too and I'm 31; I'm another one who doesn't plan on stopping. I love stocking stuffers almost as much as I like getting gifts.

On to our traditions-I host Christmas Eve at my house and that day is spent mostly cooking for the family dinner. I prepare most of the meal with my mum and aunt helping out here and there. This year my husband is having one of his chums from back home in Holland (the Netherlands) visit with us for the holidays and with the addition of my niece who is now living with us our small family will grow a bit. After dinner we all sit and exchange gifts and take pictures and that may take a while. After all of that we sit around and relax and nibble on things we probably shouldn't, lol. Christmas day is when we dig into our stockings and watch programs all day long and sipping coco.

I'm 41 and I still insist on putting stockings up. Last year Santa filled my stocking with all sorts of cool kitchen gadgets. Awesome!!!!

That sounds great!
My nanny (grandmother) stays with us on Christmas Eve night and for the whole Christmas day as when my grandad passed away we didn't want her to be by herself.

We have a tradition of placing photographs of our loved ones beneath our Christmas tree who have passed on during the past year. We also have a toy section where we put toys our parents and grandparents grew up with. Several are turn-of-the-century and my favoite is my father's teddy bear.
