me and my family simply all go to my parents house, have a nice big Turkey, lots of drink and generally have a good time. Don't bother too much with the present giving bit because we feel that it is all too commercial and just use it as a good excuse to spend some time together. Although still do the christmas tree bit, and decorating house. I live in Cardiff, wales, UK (and scarily they have just put the christmas lights up in the city centre (IT@S THE MIDDLE OF OCTOBER!!!!!!!))

We decorate the house with lights and garlend, as well as the tree. We set up two manger scenes, but leave baby Jesus out until Christmas Eve. We go to my Uncle's house for Christmas Eve and have dinner and enjoy their company. Christmas day we exchange gifts, and have dinner then visit my dad's family. Sometimes I go to my best friend's house wwith a couple other friends later like 9pm and we hang out and enjoy the time together.

In my household in the United States we put up and decorate a christmas tree, put decoratings all through the house, watch show are movies that to do with christmas. We cook lots of food such as; turkey, ham, green beans, yams, dressing, mashed potatoes, greens, rolls, cranberry sauce, etc. We only buy three gifts each because that is what the three wise men brought Jesus. Spending about $300. Really Christmas should be about spending time with family and friends and treasuring one another in love.

On Dec. 23 we get together with my mom's family. All her brothers and sisters, their kids, and their kids. total of about about 60 people. No gifts are given at this time. Then on Dec. 24 we get together with my dad's family. Lots of food for dinner. About 35 people come. Gifts are given to my Grandparents. THen on Dec. 25 my brother, my parents, my husband and kids and myself all gather at my parents house to open gifts and mom will fix breakfast and w spend the rest of the day being lazy at their house. I am trying to keep it under $200 per child this year. Plus I still have to figure out what to get my parents, brother and husband. I would love to send my parents on a cruise but I am about $400 short on that right now. If anyone could tell me how to come up with about $1000 really quickly I could finish my Christmas shopping. hehe

I usually gather with my close family members at my grandmothers house during the holiday season. We dont really have any traditions that stand out(my uncle and by brother usually throw playful insults at each other, everyone gets a good laugh from that), My main priority is spending time with them and showing how much much I love them.
