Well where do I start, on Christmas eve I usually do a lot of cooking, like chickens , roast pork, potato salads pasta sald, coleslaw etc,, puddings, and then we usually go to a friends place that night for a BBQ and drinks and then head back home looking at christmas lights that wev'e seen a thousand times before and the hit the sack(bed). Christmas day we get up really early because we have 5 kids ages ranging from 7, 10. 12, 14, 15, we open presents and then we usaully go to my mums place and lunch with the rest of my family, and after lunch we then go to the beach and play cricket or football and then we usually just flake for the rest of the afternoon , and for dinner it's usually left over meats and salads etc. And then my family and I head back home and watch the christmas sprcials on TV. This year will be different as we are moving about 1800klms away from most of my family, but at least I will have my hubby and kids and also my brother there, and my in-laws are 3 hours south of us , so they will probably travel up and celebrate with us , I hope...

santahat Christmas in Finland

LittleMissLaura, I think your family's tradition sounds wonderful and the pictures are great--they really look like Christmas. Thanks for sharing. Is the Santa Claus park where Santa's Office is located? I visit their web page regularly it looks very cool.
