    Christmas Traditions

    What do you and your family do every year for Christmas?

    For me it's simple

    Christmas Eve is spent with my dads side of the family and have a huge fish feast
    Christmas Day we open presents at my house and we go to my uncles in the afternoon for some great food and enjoy the NBA games.

    Every December 24th, after 5 o'clock mass, my family and I go to Outback Steakhouse with my aunt, uncle, and two cousins. Me, my two older brothers (now 19, 22) write a pass around story with my cousin (now 19) from the time we get there to the time we pay the check. It's really silly and childish, but we're silly and childish and it's really a lot of fun.

    We started writting the story when the oldest one was 13 years old. We have a book with every single story we've written locked in a safe at our house lol.

    When we go home, we watch the first showing of "A Christmas Story" and give each other the gifts we bought for each other.

    Christmas Eve, by far the best day of the year.

    Chirstmas Eve during day the is normally more of a day for preparing food because at night we do a movie-night with one Christmas movie and one non-Christmas movie and gorge on all of that food. Christmas morning is opening presents and pretty much just lounging around for the rest of the day, the rest of the family normally goes to Zoo Lights too, but I normally opt out.

    Nothing flashy.

    Christmas Eve and my aunts with my mom's side of the fam. My uncle does home brewing, so he brings a bunch of the different beers he has made over the past few months. This year we had a few different IPAs and a Barley Wine.

    Christmas day is just my mom, dad, brother and I. We sit around and drink mimosas and bloody marys, open presents, get drunk, take a nap, eat dinner, then go to the movies.

    From about the time I was 6 to 17, every Christmas Eve (My Mom, Dad, 4 brothers) would go to my Mom's Dad house for a Christmas Eve Dinner and exchange some gifts, and than we would make my way to my Dads sister house for some more snacks and dinner (Lobster Stew). Christmas morning was spent at my house, and than Christmas evening we had another tree and dinner up to my Dad's mom house.

    House is getting foreclosed on right now, so this year all we did was my Aunts house, and than I went to my older brothers house to see his kids open gifts, and once I got back from that me my little brother, Gram, and Dad had a small little exchange at her house..Holidays were very depressing this year and I'm glad it's over.

    well not the actual day, but ever since my parents got married, whenever we get our tree, we make the place cut off part of the bottom of the trunk and we save the piece and write the year on it. this year was the 25th year doing it.

    it's a pretty sweet tradition. everyone i tell thinks it's an awesome idea.
