Christmas Traditions

Show us your favorite Christmas traditions, Go to Kelly's Korners and see Christmas traditions and how everyone celebrates their own.

We have many Christmas traditions. The first tradition is on Christmas Eve morning. As soon as we flip our advent colander over the 24th we fill up our stocking with gifts and exchange them with each other on Christmas Eve. We have found that it created a special evening among ourselves. On Christmas day it is all about what Santa brought the Cisco Kid.

Another tradition is our anual visit to see Santa. The Cisco Kid must have a picture with santa. We have seen the same Santa since day one.

Another Christmas traditions is.... every year I make 12 different kinds of Christmas cookies totaling about 500 cookies. I give a basket of Christmas cookies with an home made Christmas ornament to our family and friends.

The Christmas cookie collection. Biscottis Connoli, Strufalas, Almond Crescents, no cook S’mores, Almond cups , Coconut Macaroons, Crisp sugar cookies, Chocolate Dipped Lady Fingers, and Oat Rageous Chocolate Chip Peanut butter, Neapolitan Cookies and Almond Rugalas Cookies.

I have started this year’s Christmas ornament but I am going to keep it a secret until the end of December.

2007 2008 Another tradition is leaving cookies and milk for Santa with a letter thanking him for making his long journey to bring presents.

We also love our electric trains. Every Christmas we set up our electric train city.



  1. Your ornaments are Beautiful. I collect a different ornament every year for my children and put them away for when they move out on their own then they will have their very own ornaments collection of things that they were into through the years. For example so far for Monkey boy I have a Curious George,Big Bird,Firetruck, and a Race Car. He is into Star Wars now so maybe this year will be a Star Wars one.

  2. Love your holiday stocking tradition. That is different form what we do, but I like it a lot. We usually save our stockings for Santa to fill with goodies and small trinkets. Your ornaments are so pretty!I hadn't seen the ones from years earlier---very cool.

  3. Such great traditions, and the cookies all sound amazing!

  4. We make cookies too but you make SO MANY!! WOW. Your little boy is a cutie.

  5. What a fun post! I love the pictures with Santa and the ornaments!

  6. I love how you have the electric train set up around the tree. And I would love to be able to make that many cookies for the holidays at some point!
