What are some of your favorite Christmas Traditions? Every culture and nationality celebrates Christmas a little differently, what are some of your? In my family we celebrate Christmas Eve with a total fish dinner and go to midnight mass as a family!

Every year when I put up the tree, I include a stocking for our cat, Morgana and one for my Petey (my dog that passed away last year). We don't fill the stockings or anything but they still have to be hung up. Have a great day!! AT PEACE WITHIN

I spend Christmas Eve on campus every year. We buy lots of snacks and eat them in the classroom while we are having a party. We sing, dance, play games and watch movies. Each classroom is filled with colored lights making the rooms so beautiful.

Hi kitty1234! On Christams eve, we have the midnight mass and the family dinner which we call "noche buena" to celebrate Jesus' Birth and at the same thanksgiving for all the blessings that we have as a whole family. At this time too, we open our christmas presents. Take care and have a nice day!

I have a tradition where I take my kids every year to pick out a new ornament for the tree. It usually has something to do with their favorite toy or something that reflects them for that year. My daughter has all kinds..dora, my little pony...I want them to be able to pull them out when they have their own children and show them a piece of their childhood. We used to open one present on christmas eve, but my daughter was born on christmas eve so we only celebrate her birthday now!!
