Christmas Traditions

So there’s this new meme for the month of December all about sharing your family’s Christmas traditions.

So every year our tradition is putting up the Christmas tree the first weekend of November. We get a lot of shit for doing this from some people like “Oh come on, at least wait til after Thanksgiving”. But our thought is that we celebrate the season and the season for us starts right after Halloween. We feel the whole 2 months at the end of the year need to be celebrated. My husband also has an elaborate Christmas village that he sets up above our entertainment center.

It is quite an elaborate display and every year my husband gets another village piece. I think it makes Christmas around our house. When my son saw the village for the first time, he was full of  “eeews” and “ahhhs”.

We also think we are going to start a new tradition where we buy Jaydon an ornament every year so that by the time J is an adult he’ll have his own set of ornaments. I had a friend in high school whose parents did this. I thought it was cool and I was just reminded of it by the grandma of the little girl I watch and I think we are gonna do it. So J’s ornament this year I think should be a train.

What Christmas traditions do you have? Come join this month-long meme here:

  1. My mom always bought us an ornament each year, and when I moved out, she gave them to me. I’ve started the same tradition with my girls. Every year, everyone gets a new ornament. That’s four new ornaments a year. However, there might be a small problem with this plan…to hang all the ornaments, I need about a 20 ft. tree. Maybe I should just start buying for the girls.

  2. I don’t really have any traditions. I like looking at other people’s Xmas decorations. I’m frugal and my cats would destroy any decoration I’d put in my house, including Xmas trees.

What do you think?
