Our Christmas Traditions

Traditions are things we do every year. Here are some of our Christmas traditions.

Emma - My dad lifts me up so I can put the angel on top of our tree.
Nathan - I go Kringleville every year.
Brooke - My cousins and grandparents come to my house every year. 
Dana - I go Grammy's and my cousins to celebrate.
Rory - We open our presents on Christmas morning, but I have to wait for Mom to get up.
Dylan - I go to sleep earlier than usual so Santa will come faster.
Joddi - I go to my grandparents and we go to church, and we sing songs together.
Jase - I go to my grandparents and open presents at night.
Laney - I go to my grandparents to celebrate the day before and we unwrap those presents after supper.
Coty - My mom decorates our Christmas tree so it's a surprise.
Jaidyn - I get up with my family on Christmas day and we unwrap our presents together. 
Hunter - I have to wait until after breakfast to open presents. That's hard!
Lillian - We sing songs before we open presents.
Dakota - Me and my mom and Harley decorate our tree.
Daniel - We get our tree around Thanksgiving.
Natasha - I light up our tree and then sing songs.
Alanna - We put up lots of decorations in my room.

Most of us leave cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. We bake special cookies. We decorate Christmas trees and hang wreaths. AND - we decorate our classroom. Our teacher puts up one new decoration every day, and we have to find it. It's fun!

We have a Ukrainian Christmas tradition. We open our presents when we come home from church on Christmas Eve. We slept very late on Christmas Day.

Do the reindeer eat your carrots?

Dear Starfish,

I really liked reading about all of your Christmas traditions. The biggest tradition at my house is my cat sleeping under the tree and knocking the ornaments off!
