Alot of families have christmas traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation. Like freezing and sending 100 year old fruitcake from state to state. YUM, YUM!

Does your family have a tradition that they do yearly?

We have one in our family, the grandmother has a christmas party just for the kids, no parents allowed. We don't mind at all, it is a chance to do the last minute items and not have to worry about the kids for a few hours.

That's pretty neat! I like that idea kids need other kids too...
We are from very strong German tradition so my mother spends two days cooking ethnic food and we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve as our German ancestors have done. It's really nice because I did study music over in Austria and Germany and I notice that they are very family oriented and show their love to their families by closing their businesses every day at 5 pm, including grocery stores and if you're lucky a restaurant may stay open until 8. the way they show that they care for their family (one of the many) is they cook and their food is very rich. No such thing as having 24 hour convenient centers, it just doens't happen. also they don't really drive in Saltzburg anyway, so there are few 'gas stations' as we know it. now that we have a baby it'll be fun for him to open his presents on Christmas Eve, but like i said, he'll prolly look at us expecting us to do it Wink

How old is your baby debtstinker? Gifting presents to your kids gives a peculiar satisfaction right?

I think if you wrap it in his favorite character he just might debtstinker, Children often don't know about santa or understand the christmas paper characters for the first couple of years, he doesn't see those characters everyday.

He may do it, if you and dad do it and make it seem like fun also, remember they watch us, you may just be so surprised at his reaction. Just don't get disappointed when he would rather play with the box than the gift that is in it. LOL. kids crack me up when they do this.

Have fun and enjoy all the little christmas's now while he is young.

I am sure what ever you decide to wrap in he will enjoy it because it is from santa, LOL. Mine is at the age now where she knows everything, she is not wanting a whole lot, just the blow up princess bed, it is in the closet, early santa. She would rather do things with you than have alot of junk that she won't use for christmas, she is a good kid. I went nuts last year and found that it was really no big deal to her. She enjoys the lights, the decoration, the making things for other people and especially distributing what she made.

Well, thanks Laura, I will take that as a compliment, she is a great kid considering what all she has been through. We are blessed to have her, we know that she will be fine now and that hopefully we can give her all the right tools to lead a productive life.

I have to wonder what did Cramer do in that episode, morningstar, I often watch the reruns of that show. Don't recall the episode. I like the show, it is hilarious. I think these people in alot of sense could be your real life friends and family.

You are right about the large family, we had that going on, until a summertime conflict caused problems at christmas time, no this one won't go to that ones house, this one won't go there, it is so stupid, It has been over three years now and they are still holding the grudge. It affects the whole family, it is so irritating. It is one husband in particular, little weasel always starts trouble when he does not want to do something. All he has to do is stay home, but he chooses to convince my sister of the same thing. Everyone is about tired of it. This is on my side of the family.

On my hubby's side, grandma still gets the kids together.
