My Favorite Christmas Traditions

We all have our Christmas traditions that have been around since we were children. As we have grown, we’ve started new traditions with our spouses, or have begun with our children. I don’t have children, but my husband and I try to hold onto the traditions our families began. This includes new pajamas on Christmas Eve for me, and Christmas Eve feast of the seven fishes for him. I think the holidays are more fun adding new experiences and trying new things together.

Here is a list of my favorite Christmas traditions. What are your favorites?
