Hi Everyone!

We're getting ready for all kinds of exciting holiday content and we'd love to hear about some of your family's holiday traditions! Did you carry traditions over from when you were growing up or did you start new ones with your own family?

One of my favorite traditions growing up was this silly game called "Christmas Eve Gift !!". My dad played it when he was growing up and then started the tradition with my mom and I. All you had to do was be the first person to yell out "Christmas Eve Gift" on Christmas Eve and you could open one present early. My dad had 8 siblings so it was quite the competition, LOL! I was an only child so I had it much easier. :smileyvery-happy:

That's a really cute family tradition!

Let's see, we are vegetarians and so for Thanksgiving, we "adopt" a turkey from a rescue farm. The kids pick which one they like online and we are sent a little picture which the kids put on the table where the bird would be lol.
