Well, my tradition are: I wake up and make my self a cup of coffee. I chose the mornings Christmas present to give my kids. I put the present in the stocking. I start with a Christmas movie, hopefully the sound of music. When the kids have waken up they open their morning gift. Often it is a Movie. And we see the movie before we go to my mum and dad. There we eat Christmas dinner, watch Donald duck, that is a tradition for the hole country only on Christmas day. I use to say, if any criminal what to make a break in in shops, banks and so forth, they should do it this particular day since the hole country sits in front of TV and see Donald duck. After that we go to my sister to exchange gifts eat the white porridge and see one more traditional TV program that only shows on this particular day. The story is about a boy who take sent gifts from rich people and give to the poor. His father get angry, but when they take a tour to tell the people about what the boy have done, he become an hero, and the father gets proud of his son. I love the story and will never ever miss this one on Christmas day. But I only see it this day, no other day. Well, when I come home I make my self a god late Christmas evening TV food, and end the day with the amazing grate movie only for My Christmas day a Christmas carol, the movie about MR scrooge. I just love this story. So what are your traditions on Christmas day?, any special TV shows you see? See family or friends?. How do you spend your Christmas Day?

Christmas is a time of giving, both gifts in material and gifts in acts. Singing in Christmas is the best thing I know, I used to be in a choir and did always sing every day during the Christmas holiday. I kind of miss it, Unfortunately, we do not have a choir nearby where I live, I moved from the village where I enjoyed being a member of a choir. I hope and wish you a very Merry Christmas with your friends and the lovely music in Christmas. Thank you for responding,

We do not celebrate Christmas and so it's just like an ordinary day. But there are parties around and of course they invite us and give us food and of course also we eat whatever is offered.

Thats to sad, I think everybody should celebrate Christmas Day, not just because of the religon thing, but just because it is a wonderful day to celebrate with your family, a day just to do the fun things, and not the must do things. Anyhow, I wish you a Merry Christmas and tank you for responding.

Even though our kids are grown up they still get Christmas stockings. For a long time they'd leave out a glass of milk and chocolate chippie biscuits for Father Christmas. Now they've all left home, so Fr Christmas misses out on this bit of the fun. But what I do instead of filling the Christmas stockings with things is put an envelope for each person. There's a private letter to each one, talking about their year, and there's also a puzzle they have to do before they can find their Christmas stocking. Even though the oldest of my kids is 32, they all still enjoy doing this, and look forward to it.

I believe the Christmas spirit fulfill us all. And the child in us wake up and feel that Christmas feeling that put this day on the map and make us as kids. I have a rule for this day, I never work. I think that this special day are a day to be free from all the must do things. I feel this day will be a glory full day with happy faces and lots of spirits. So I should not matter if you are 2, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 50 or hundreds of years. We should all have a wonderful Christmas day. Thank you for responding, and Merry Christmas to You and Your family.
