Favourite holiday traditions
« on: December 10, 2017, 10:52:24 am »
I was just rewatching the Frozen short and it made me think about holiday traditions so I'm curious what everyone's favourite is?

I have several but my top favourite is putting up and decorating the Christmas tree. It's Usually just me and my mom since my sister usually just gets super grumpy and doesn't want to help. Nevertheless it's always lots of fun! We have a ton of ornaments so it always takes a while and by the end we need to double up ornaments on some branches :fox-:P: I love my tree and all the pretty ornaments/memories associated with them so it's definitely something I look forward to each year ^^

I don't have traditions anymore, but I miss putting up the tree SO MUCH. It was usually me and my mom too, and like you said we usually doubled a lot of branches up. I loved going through the boxes of ornaments every year because most of them had stories behind them, or were ones that I made in elementary school. We would have to move some furniture around to make room for our trees so it was like our whole house was transformed, hah.

Also we used to decorate Christmas cookies!!! We would make like 8 different icing colors and decorate like 300 cookies for no reason  :fox-:P:

My grandparents are always busy around the holidays, but they usually try to visit for a weekend beforehand. My grandmother, mom, and I spend all day baking cookies while cliche Hallmark movies play on TV in the background. It's simple, but I love it.

I think my favourite thing to do, especially on a hot Christmas day (Australia) was open the presents around the swimming pool or down at the beach, have a BBQ then go spend the day swimming or basking in the aircon, or get a massive thunderstorm roll through if we were lucky and sit on the balcony watching it

going on a nearby ferry to see the Christmas lights of the town across the water is something we've done a few times (:

I love watching "Rudolph", " A Christmas Story", and sometimes "It's a Wonderful Life". I also love driving around with my family and looking at Christmas lights, and of course, decorating my house and setting up a tiny town and train set under the Christmas tree is always fun. But my favorite tradition is going to my family's Christmas Eve party. I love my family they're funny and loving. My aunt may be coming to Anthrocon with me and my mom next year.  :fox-:):


Merry Christmas (almost Christmas :pawheart:)
