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.
