Christmas Traditions

Christmas  is THREE weeks away!  Wow!  Snuck up on me this year. Here are some of our traditions:

Making gingerbread houses out of graham crackers, lots of frosting, and lots of candy! For a frosting recipe like the one we use click HERE.

Visiting the lights on Temple Square.

Getting new pj's on Christmas Eve.

Eating a yummy fondue dinner on Christmas Eve, followed by a reading of the Christmas story from the New Testament.

Eating off our fancy dishes for the 12 days leading up to Christmas. Each of those nights has a special Christmas story to read together and a little inexpensive gift for the kids.

We are trying something new this year to simplify our Christmas morning.

Those are a few of our traditions. What are the favorite things you do together to celebrate the season?
