If you could only continue one holiday/winter/Christmas tradition what would it be? Good food with family, presents, tree with lights, singing, church, nature, something else?:think I was thinking of my favorite traditions and I like so many things about winter and the holidays I was wondering what everyone else cherishes about this time of year. I like winter in general, so it's hard for me to choose what is my favorite part scratch Smile

That small period of time when all stores are closed and everyone is in the warm house together, no traffic on the roads and peace and quit rules the day!

Ohhhh yes, the peace of the season. I agree it is wonderful. It's as if nothing else exists or needs to exist besides that place and moment. snowsmile

B-man and i have developed a tradition of our own over the years. On Christmas eve. i take him to McD's for supper, then to the mall for a mall walk. On the way home i look for decorated houses for him to see......and if we pass a house with the front door open i drive slowly so we can look inside and see the contented family scene Gus described he has with his wonderful family. We then drive through Spring Park, then home. I let B-man open his gifts that night then it's bedtime as usual, and the next day is just an ordinary day for the two of us.

Same here Unc. Only thing I would add is the phone isn't working.

That is a really nice tradition!! We like to take the girls around the area to see the pretty lights. I love to drive home at night and see the lights and deer/tree/penguins in our front yard at night too:)

It's hard to pick just one because we've never had just Christmas Day. With so many sides to our family, we have Christmas week. So I had to think on that a while. Although I would be quite sad without Christmas Eve at my Mom's because I am really close to all of that side, there is something about just your immediate family being alone together. We do have a time of opening presents at our house each year, but that's not my favorite. I think it's the car ride, oddly enough, to Gramma's house (about an hour away) when it's just us, excited about Christmas & seeing family soon, seeing the Christmas lights and sometimes snow, talking, laughing and singing our favorite Christmas songs together.

Great topic, Sync...thanks! train
