What Christmas Traditions Are Part Of Your Family Celebration?

As a child growing up, I was taught the true meaning of Christmas at the same time I was introduced to Santa Claus. Like all little children, I really thought that Santa Claus was a real person, making his way down chimneys to leave presents for everyone on Christmas morning. Of course, every child ends up finding out that Santa Claus isn’t real, and it’s mom and dad leaving those presents under the tree.

What is real, however, is the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus, the spirit of giving, communities coming together to celebrate and much more. What Christmas traditions does your family uphold? There are some that do not celebrate Christmas, but if you were one of those people, you’re likely not reading this article.

While my family has always celebrated Christmas, it’s interesting that as we all got older, none of us was big on decorating. It’s not that we don’t want a tree, or lights and other decorations. It’s simply that it’s a lot of work each year to take care of decorating after Thanksgiving. We’re all still stuffed from turkey!

Thanksgiving tradition

It’s funny to think about all the Christmas traditions there are out there and how they change in families over time. For example, when I moved 20 hours away a few years back, my mom started a new tradition of sending me ‘the 12 cards of Christmas.’ That was really neat and her way of showing me she missed me during Christmas and loves me very much.

This year, Christmas is approaching, and I was able to travel down here for the holidays to be with my family for the next couple of months. We just enjoyed Thanksgiving, and Christmas is approaching. There are 14 stockings on the wall, even ones for the animals, and there is a Christmas tree up with tons of presents.

None of that stuff would’ve been there if it weren’t for my sister’s partner. My mom wouldn’t want to fuss with putting up a tree or decorating and neither would I. My sister might, but she likely wouldn’t have done it without it being a tradition of her partner’s.

One of our family traditions is that we can’t keep our hands off the presents until Christmas morning. I can’t remember the last time that we actually accomplished that. Even as kids, I remember us all getting together to open up Christmas presents early.

Throughout the years, Christmas dinner has been enjoyed in different places, but for years now, it’s been at my Great Aunt’s house. It’s a great place for everyone to get together and enjoy each other’s company, a good meet up place for Christmas.

What does your family do for Christmas dinner? We always have Christmas dinner at lunchtime, just like we do for Thanksgiving. Since we do turkey and dressing on Thanksgiving the month before, Christmas is usually ham and whatever else people want to bring, potluck style.
