I loved reading about all of your Christmas traditions. Some brought a tear to my eye as I thought of my own family and our traditions. I look forward to carrying ours on and creating new ones with my own family. I think my favorite Christmas tradition is Christmas eve. We always get together with an array of finger foods and treats, some tasty drinks (once I was old enough), and sit by the fire (a real one) with the Christmas tree (also real) lights twinkling. We'd visit and joke, often enjoying a special Ice Wine or Port (once I was old enough). I still look forward to that evening every year. As a child I also enjoyed being able to open our stockings before anyone else was up Christmas morning (we always had to wait for my oldest brother to get up...I think he did it on purpose), and I especially loved getting up before everyone else, turning on the Christmas tree lights and, with the rest of the house still dark and quiet, sitting or lying at the foot of that tree and bathing in its glowing delight.
