A Christmas Tradition: Hot Chocolate, Popcorn & Cookies, “Elf” and New PJs



I’m all about traditions. I love starting things and having something to look forward to. It’s fun to watch the same traditions grow and change over the years as our family grows and changes.

Well, Christmas Eve involves one of my favorite traditions of all time. We always eat a nice meal with the kids and then after supper they are always allowed to open one gift–the rest have to wait until Christmas morning. The gift that they get to open is a pair of new pajamas (Old Navy usually has some cute ones!) We then put the movie “Elf” in the DVD player and make popcorn and hot chocolate! Of course we have to try some of the cookies that we are going to set out for Santa to make sure they taste okay!

What are some of your holiday traditions?

Merry Christmas!
