  10. Our kids, who are all grown now, still come to our room on Christmas morning to wake us up before going to the tree. We go to the parlor, close the doors, and are set to snap photos when they come through the doors to see what Santa left. Really fun now that the youngest two wait until their sister gets there with her hubby and children to see what Santa brought everyone.

  14. Since mine is grown...my favorite grandkiddo tradition is to give them each an advent calendar for a Christmas countdown. The kind with chocolates. Grandmas can get away with giving them candy.

  15. I don't have any children at home anymore, but when I did, our tradition was to go to the mall and choose a child from the Salvation Army Angel tree and shop for him/her together.

  27. I don't have children, but I do have a younger sister with Down Syndrome. Her birthday is Christmas Eve, so my favorite tradition is to do something outrageous and special for her birthday. Some years, we catch the train to Chicago and take in a musical. Other years, I have surprised her with trips to the ballet or sporting events. It's always a challenge to find something new and exciting to do with her in a way that makes her birthday special during the holidays. c_biswell at yahoo dot com

  32. I don't have kids, but my favorite tradition these days is to go down to the Ballard Locks and watch the Christmas Ship go by! An evening full of ships all light up with Christmas lights and decorations ... music is playing, I'm there with friends, there's hot cocoa and cider and doughnuts and kids and dogs running around in the rain - lots of fun. :)

  37. My boys are all grown now, but, my favorite thing we did at Christmas was make hundreds of cut out paper snowflakes and string them on fish line to hang from the ceiling with pins in all the rooms. When you walked through they would all move and it looked like a snow storm.

  59. No kids here. But my favorite tradition as a child was always Christmas eve! Church, drive around looking at the Christmas lights (and look for Santa), the end of It's a Wonderful Life, open one gift, read The Night Before Christmas, then bed. I like to think I would carry on the exact same tradition if I had kids.

  61. My kids are still quite young but I am trying to buy them new PJs each year to open the night before Christmas here (we travel every year for Christmas, so this year it will be a full week before Christmas!). I do love the 24/25 books of Christmas where they get a new Christmas book to read every night. I may have to start that one next year. Thanks for the chance to win this bag, it is lovely!

  77. When my children were little we always went down to see the train display downtown and then on to see the animated elf display with jolly old nick, himself. We also always went to the children's Christmas Eve service at 4:30 and then had dinner with my grandmother. I dearly miss those days. vicmil at aoldot com

  78. No children as of yet but I loved decorating Christmas cookies as a child and look forward to one day continuing the tradition!

    ReplyDelete
  79. We do family stories. Every night after baths and before bed, the kids pick a Christmas story and we all pile into our bed, snuggle under a quilt and the hubs and I take turns reading aloud. This year, Wick, our elf on the shelf, wrapped all the kids books to make it more fun and random with regards to the selection. Although, we always save Night Before Christmas for last...

    ReplyDelete
  80. oh beautiful bag! I love large bags! My kids are grown now, but when they were little we always had a special night when we went out to dinner. Then after dinner, we went and took a drive to see all the houses that were decorated for Christmas. It was such a fun time!

    ReplyDelete
  81. My favorite tradition is driving around with my hubby and kids, looking at Christmas lights. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  82. my favorite tradition is advent - there are so many ways to keep kids focused on the preparations for christmas rather than the gifts. :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. My favourite tradition that we do with my son is opening a gift on the winter solstice! We give "winter gifts"! We also do christmas gifts, but the winter gift is fun!

    ReplyDelete
  87. We have a couple of traditions: getting our tree the day after Thanksgiving (always from the same place), daddy always puts the star on, the girls get to open one present Christmas Eve and we always, always stay in our PJ's all day Christmas! After opening gifts we have a huge brunch at our house with our extended family.

  88. me and my kiddos decorate the tree together:)

    ReplyDelete
  89. Since my kids were little, it has been our tradition to watch White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye together on Thanksgiving weekend. My son (28 now) was the only one of the clan who could come home this year, and when he got here he said, "When are we gonna watch White Christmas?" I love that he sings the songs along with the movie and knows most of the dialog by heart.
