Thursday: Holiday Traditions!

Thu Dec 19, 2013, 7:47 PM

Happy Thursday, everyone!

Last week, all of you had the chance to build snowmen in our Snowman Contest! We had a whole variety of snowmen, including cookiemen, woolmen, and sandmen, and they were all fantastic! :D 

Here are your winners!

Congratulations! You'll be contacted about your prizes within 24 hours!

This week, we're sharing our Holiday Traditions!

We all have some sort of tradition that we keep up with every year during the holidays. It might be as simple as drinking eggnog and watching Love Actually with your loved ones, or as hilarious as forcing an uncle to dress up as Santa every year and getting every member of the family sit on his lap while they open their presents. These traditions are part of what makes the holidays so much fun, and this week we get to share them with each other!
  • Share one of your favorite holiday traditions in the comments below. 
  • Ten Premium Members who take part will be randomly selected to win 100 Points each
  • All entries must be in Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 11:59 PM Los Angeles time. 
One of my favorite traditions comes from my Polish grandparents. Every Christmas Eve, my family gets together and we break Oplatek (a type of thin Polish bread) with each other and wish each other well. It's a great time, and I look forward to it every year.

Happy Thursday everyone, and may your holidays be merry and bright!

Every Christmas I will lament on how I don't celebrate Christmas...

My family and I have a huge Christmas party where every year, after we open gifts, we turn on the ceiling fan and put the wrapping paper into balls and throw it at the fan to see where the wrapping paper goes

I make a Christmas ornament in dedication of someone who has helped me that year. It usually represents something they like, something we did together or something representing how they helped me.

Our Christmas tradition is Listening to Christmas music, as well as going out to the mountains and cutting down our own Christmas tree and decorating it. As well as making our family recipe of syrup cookies that are truly addicting! And then on Christmas eve night we each open one present each, only one, its a tradition we do every year. :)

My family's Christmas tradition is to watch the 1951 film Scrooge starring Alistair Sim as the titular character. "I must stand on my head, I must stand on my head..." :) Good times.

My Christmas really hasn't been the same since my grandfather passed away, we don't really continue with traditions like we used to, or if we do, it's not every year like it was. My favourite was always eating Strada for breakfast. We all had to sit down and eat breakfast before we could get to presents, it was just the rule. We also had to guess what every gift was before we were allowed to open it xD

Where I live the tradition is to hit a piece of wood with a stick while singning a song, and then it throws presents to us all!

This is a drawing for me to explain how my family celebrate Christmas:

Every other year for Christmas me & my family goes out to donate a few gifts for the needy or ",Homeless" who need help during the Holidays.
When I was in School I would give some can of vegetables,meat products,soup cans ect, for School donations to get a "A" in glass.
If we have time on our hands we goto Tennessee to see my cousins to give them our pressents so, we know what to get them the year after. So, that's pretty much it for my family tradition.

Traditions? Here in Mexico we have the typical 'posadas' where we pray and proceed to recreate Mary and Joseph's search for a place to stay while singing songs, and finally breaking a piņata! Some people even offer food to everyone who attends! Its done everyday until the 24th, i believe...
However, in my family we usually stay at someone's place until the 25th comes and we celebrate with the biggest dinner possible!!
