Christmas Traditions

It's funny how the family traditions we grow up with carry over into our own families - or morph into some new version that incorporates the traditions of your spouse's childhood. And then there are the new traditions that we start - whether on purpose or by accident.

One of my favorite traditions growing up was reading 'Twas the Night Before Christmas with my brother and sister. My brother was always the reader, and he read every word in the book - right down to the publishing information. There were songs in the back of our book, and he read those lyrics too. Fa la la la la...la la la la. We didn't sing it. We read it. It was a silly thing he started that just stuck. Now, we still try to read it on Christmas Eve if we are together. We've even done it over the phone when we are not!

What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions?
