To help us get in the holiday spirit, we trim the tree and decorate it with twinkling lights, buy each other gifts and listen to carols. But aside from those universal traditions, it seems every family has at least one holiday tradition that they claim as their own.

Here are some of my own personal family favorites:

Christmas Eve Mass: We attend mass as a family then head to my parents where the rest of the extended family joins us. There are about 25 of us and it’s still so much even as an adult!

Christmas Eve Before Bed (as a kid!): My sister and I would play our favorite Carpenters Christmas song on our little pink radio. We could only play it that night because there is a line in the song that says “…tomorrow is Christmas…” and well, you can’t just play that on ANY night, right? πŸ™‚

Christmas Day: We make opening presents an all day affair. Now that there are 9 of us adults, we open stocking and gifts, then take about a million breaks to eat leftovers from the night before. One year we didn’t even finish until almost 7pM…and it was the best!

The Beach Boys: Mom and Dad dancing together to “Little Saint Nick” in their Santa hats. Probably my most favorite moment of the morning, and I can’t wait to see it again this year!

I’d love to hear your family traditions! Comment below & thank you so much for reading!

    Oh, how I’d love to wear nude pumps outside. Love the outfit and the tradition share. My fave is a french Canadian tradition- la RΓ©veillon- we did it growing up- you go to Midnight Mass on Christmas eve and come home to a feast of treats

    Looking so festive in your red coat! Seriously giving your outfit heart eyes. You have very nice Christmas traditions. Family time is the best and it looks like you have plenty with those favorite people of yours! We don’t have much of a tradition and starting slow. We are baking this year for Santa on Christmas Eve and spending Christmas Day opening gifts and just being a family. My dad said he’ll be in town this year so looking forward to that.

    What fun traditions! I love that you spread your gift opening to take up the whole day! We do a huge Christmas eve celebration with the whole family (like over 30 of us now?) and keep christmas day really low key. I always hide the pickle on the tree on christmas eve.
