    Every year, in November I wrap 31 Children's Christmas books. There is a small Christmas tree in our upstairs landing that the wrapped books go under. Every night in December, my kids pick a book to unwrap. We read it all together and put the read ones in a basket . I have done this for four years now and it is a tradition that all 4 of my kids look forward to every year!

    We've started using a Jesse Tree. Every day of the season we add a new ornament that has a corresponding story that leads up to Christ. Such a meaningful way to celebrate the season.

    I am already a subscriber! My twin girls are 4, but when they were 2 we started putting a small Christmas tree in their bedroom, and each year they get to choose a small ornament to add to the tree. The ornament has to be indicative of something that happened that year (so maybe a preschool ornament for 1st day, etc.) they are already looking forward to picking out this year's!

    I am already a follower of naptime and just joined Wipperberry. What a fun blog! I am excited to see more of what they do. My favorite family tradition still has to be setting up the christmas tree and decorations listening the holiday music. M husband and I dont have any kids yet so we are still trying to establish our own traditions. I love hearing everyones ideas.

    My fave holiday tradition is still waking up at my parent's house on Christmas morning. Even if it means a husband and three kids now in tow. It's the best.
    We also make a birthday cake for Jesus. It's so sweet to watch the kids sing Happy Birthday to him.

    I LOVE Christmas Eve with my entire family at my Grandma's. We hide a Christmas mouse and my uncle pays $5 to whoever finds it! The mouse belongs to my late Grandpa and we all think of him and enjoy the party! My aunt also reads a moving Christmas story that night. It's so wonderful.

    Something about Christmas morning and just being together with my husband and my 3 teen boys is magical and tradition. We are happy to still be together as a family … Autism, cancer, death, lots of challenges and crisis and trauma's … we are together and that is enough for me!

    our favorite family tradition is passed down from my Mom (who isn't with us anymore). We make a Christmas Chain made with scrapbooking paper in 4 different colors to represent each family member. Each strip has something to do together as a family on it. Whether it is making cookies, watching a movie, hugging someone, seeing Christmas lights. Each day someone takes down a link reads it and we do the activity together. There are 25 links to represent the first 25 days of December. The kids like to watch the chain get smaller and know how many days are left till Christmas. We have been doing this with my kids for 13 years.

    My favorite holiday tradition is for Thanksgiving-we have a tablecloth that we use every year that we all write what we're thankful for on. It's fun to look back over the years!

    The traditions I love are the ones that bring my family together. As an empty nester it means so much to have my 4 adult children come home to celebrate.
    My 3 daughters and I do a "Let's Do Dessert" day every December, usually it's the Friday before one or more of us is hosting a party so the treats are put to good use!

    Many years ago my family and I adopted the tradition of a family we know – they always have Linguica on Christmas morning (with waffles and other breakfast-y foods). It's a South American sausage, and I just love it. My arteries? probably not. But to me, it means Christmas morning.

    On Christmas morning my entire family (aunts, uncles, cousins,etc) come to my house for brunch and exchanging gifts. It is total chaos but I wouldn't want it any other way!

    One of my favorite family traditions is opening up one gift on Christmas Eve. As a child this was usually a gift that I would wear that night to whatever holiday party we were attending. I am so excited to have started this with my own kidlets.

    Every year on Christmas Eve we make Sour Soup. It was a tradition my husbands grandfather used to do that we picked up. We have the whole family over. At the end of the evening our family each opens one gift which is usually PJs.

    I subscribed to your blog and the WhipperBerry one. I will tweet about the giveaway as well. ;-)

    My favorite holiday tradition is making goody plates with the kids and taking them to friends/families and sometimes people in need. We always ding-dong ditch them on the doorstep so there is no "repaying" the favor. I love to cheer people up with a plate full of homemade goodness. Thanks for the chance :)

    What a beautiful giveaway! Though we have many special Christmas traditions, my favorite is going to the Christmas Eve candlelight service at church, heading home to open up new pjs for everyone, and then bake/decorate Christmas cookies with the whole family before bed. Make for a busy Christmas Eve, but I wouldn't change it! Thanks again for a great giveaway (and blog!) :)

    Favorite Christmas tradition is making snow milkshakes and reading the 1958 Charles Tazwell classic "The Littlest Snowman" on the first big snowfall of the season with my six kiddos.

    My favorite holiday tradition is the Candlelight Christmas Eve service at the church. I just love it when they shut off all the lights, pass around lit candles and we all sing Silent Night.
