We have a lot of family traditions for Christmas. We start with decorating right after Thanksgiving. The kids love to hang lights everywhere.
We celebrate Advent with an Advent Wreath and a Jesse Tree. We drink egg nog on the first night of Advent and on Christmas Eve. We always have a birthday cake for Jesus on Christmas Eve.
We always bake Christmas cookies including sugar cookies. We build gingerbread house, with everyone having their own small house.
We always have a birthday cake for Jesus on Christmas Eve. And we always have homemade cinnamon roles for breakfast morning.
We love to go as a family to a live nativity in a near-by town.

Here’s a short video of the kids favorite Christmas decoration.
We have had Frosty for over 15 years. Every year I think Frosty is gone for good. But he always turns up by the time we pack up the decorations.
