Whatever holiday you celebrate, I'm sure the way you celebrate is unique to you in some way. Every family has different traditions, and I thought it would be fun for us to share some of ours. I'll go first:
Every year, either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day depending on the situation, we play Christmas Trivia. We all contribute a couple small gifts to the basket, then we all take turns answering trivia questions. If you get it right, you get to pick a gift (they are all wrapped so you don't know which is which). Once all the gifts are gone, we set a timer for 20 minutes. During that time, if you get an answer right, you can swap a gift you don't want with someone else's that you do want. Sometimes, it becomes more about good-natured messing with the other person by giving them something you know they don't want then getting something for yourself. Hilarity ensues, I assure you.
Despite being 36 and 34, we sleep over at my parents' house. We have our daughter now, but we used to do that anyway before she was born, so we could wake up at their house Christmas morning to whatever deliciousness my mom had baked, as well as coffee and tea. And of course, my mom is the Queen of Christmas, so every inch of the house is dripping with magic, whether it be decorations or music.
I wonder what traditions we will want to add when our daughter is old enough to give us input. But I have a feeling that what we do now will always remain the same.
