As we are bringing our Christmas in July to a close, with only a couple posts left, I thought it would be fun to share our favorite Christmas traditions. Maybe we'll find a new one we'd like to try!
Christmas brunch with Mimosas have always been a tradition in our family. My mom started them in our family when we were young. I've carried that tradition with my own kids. The nice thing about brunch is that a lot of the work can be done the night before so you can enjoy Christmas morning without so much rushing around.
Another tradition is one that the kids grandpa started when they were little. Every year, along with their presents, he would give them each a stack of lottery scratch-off tickets. He has since passed, but I have continued that tradition in his memory.
And of course there is the tradition of Christmas baking, and one cookie that always finds its way to the oven is my Grandma Ashton's Sugar Cookies. They've been a family favorite for years!
So please tell me about your traditions!
