Do you have any holiday traditions?

We really don't.  I don't have much family left anymore.  I do try and bake cookies every year. I started baking at 5 am this morning and didn't finish until 7pm.  I am baked out!

I made several different kinds. Spamoni, which is an italian christmas cookie, spiced cut outs, mocha balls, russian teacakes, and cherry blossums. We do have special ornaments that we have and each year we get another one.

That's a lot of baking!  What kind of cookies did you make?  I still need to make a couple of batches, not because we need them but because it's expected that they'll be made.  I think I'll be freezing some so we can enjoy them later on.  

Most of our traditions are with my dh and our boys.  Our family is all far way, so unless my in-laws fly up for the holidays, it's usually just us.  We will try to go to a tree farm to cut down our tree if it works out.  Stockings are also a big thing in my dh's family, I shop all year around for unique or fun gifts for them.
