I'm looking forward to when I'm married and can start my own traditions. I already have some ideas! Is that weird?
that is most definately not weird! i would say its actually very normal!

18 16x16 Do you have a christmas day tradition

hi everyone was just thinking there about my christmas day and thinking about the things i do every year so guess you call it a tradition
So do any of you have a tradition Something that you do on christmas day .Something that is a part of your christmas. Something that maybe was there from years ago.. Something you carrried on from your parents..Something you started and now it is part of the day...Does.nt matter if its silly as long as your happy with it

For me its people coming for dinner. never have to ask them they just come and i no it
As well me and my partner space out christmas gifts. The 1st in the morning. 2nd usually a while befour dinner and after the guests have gone and then a few during the evening as we feel it is christmas all day and its nice to have some wee things to look forward to and there is always one keep for boxing day morning

The wife and I wake early, drink coffee, open gifts, and then we head to my parents, where we open more gifts. That afternoon, we spend napping and watching Christmas shows. Nice day!

When I was a kid, we were allowed to open one gift on Christmas Eve, usually pajamas. We always had a Christmas party with all the relatives. On Christmas morning, we visited all the relatives to see what everyone got for Christmas. Then we could visit our friends in the neighborhood to see what they received. I would always lay out all my gifts on my bed and lined them up so I could see everything. Then I would write in my diary about the day and the gifts.

I think you might be surprised at the number of men that cook. Believe it or not, I have more male contacts in the culinary world than female ones. Saying that a woman belongs in the kitchen is an ignorant stereotype.

Real men can cook! 

My wife and sister in law would normally make christmas dinner but they used to use to much frozen stuff,meat,veg would come frozen and i hated that so 3 years ago after eating christmas dinner i vowed that i will start cooking it instead and all of it would be fresh and its gone down so well the last 2 years no one else is allowed to cook it now.

Chef Matt you are right. My husband loves to cook, and what a fantastic cook he is. I'll admit that he's even better than I am in the kitchen!!

My husband & I do a Christmas Pizza for bruch...I know, not much, right?! Tradition, though, goes back to our days of being broke & new to a big city. Well, we are so grateful for what we have now, that we still do the frozen pizza. But, for the rest of the day, sinful finger foods, appetizers, & cookies. Then, for dinner, usually a ham or prime rib with the works. Presents, car rides to admire the lights, Christmas movies, and skype to our families. If time allows, a trip to the mountains to see some snow. Our pup, Harlowe, loves it!!!
