What traditions do you carry on at your house this time of year? I do a few that we did in my childhood and I have a few new ones I've implemented. We do Elf on the Shelf, drive around on Christmas Eve and look at Christmas lights while having hot chocolate, read "The Night Before Christmas" before bed on Christmas Eve, We bake cookies on Christmas Eve for Santa, we get our tree every year from the same Christmas Tree "Cut your own" farm (13 years now!)...we pick it out on the weekend after Thanksgiving or that week following and tag it with a ribbon and then cut it down the 2nd week of December and bring it home. That's just a few of our ongoing traditions...here is a photo of our tree...
