One of my favorite holiday traditions is making fudge. My mom knew how to do the frosting just right to look like a holly leaf and berries on each square of fudge and they looked as good as they tasted!

It seems hard to come up with a tradition...I know there are things about Christmas that are around because of tradition...but which one is a favorite?

Right now, I guess I'd go for the decorations!

Wouldn't you know- "learn to embroider" is on my list of things to do. I have 2 Christmas quilts that won't be because I never learned. They're hopefully going to be birthday presents.

I've really come to love our elf on the shelf. Today he brought my kids a gingerbread house to decorate.

My favorite holiday memory comes from childhood. Christmas eve family dinner, followed by midnight mass, and then the first snowflakes beginning to fall just as we left church. A perfect White Christmas!

Kate said...

Sarah @ Fabric Seeds said...

my family started a new tradition a few ago, after all the kids got married and moved away. anyone who is 'home' for christmas sleeps at my parent's house christmas eve. it's a lot of fun to have the whole family together and have all the little kids get to know their cousins better. plus, we don't have to waste any time christmas morning on waiting for everyone to show up.

Sarah @ Fabric Seeds said...

of course i follow you!

Pam said...

Love the Christmas bundle, Kristy!!! It would most definitely make a beautiful patchwork pillow. I used to love it when the kids were little and they'd bring their Santa sacks into our bedroom and we'd all sit on our bed opening presents.

Pam said...

Following!!! I'm very happy to hang out with you. I have to learn to take photos like you. The closeups of your fabric and goodies are terrific!

Pam said...

I so much enjoyed joining in with the Create HOPE Designs sew along. I made yet another pair of shorts last night from the 30 Minute Shorts pattern.

covering said...

I remember the year I got my own bike, a western flyer...I loved it. I also remember it iced with a little snow that Christmas too, I was nine :) Thank you and merry Christmas.

Every year, about a week before Christmas, we take our son out to dinner and then drive to a wonderful neighborhood full of Christmas lights. We walk around sipping hot chocolate and nibbling cookies, enjoying all the lovely lights.

One of my favorite holiday traditions is having a holiday-themed movie marathon with my sisters. A couple of our favorites are: Elf, Love Actually, and The Holiday. Gotta love those feel-good movies! :)

Jodi said...

Hi Kristy... One of my favorite Christmas traditions I'm trying to hold onto is having the kids open gifts as a family Christmas morning. With the kids being older it's getting tougher each year. My daughter lives at home while going to college so she'll be home. My son is now married with a one yr. old as well as being in the Marine Corp. My son will be home for Christmas this year but he deploys for Afghanistan this coming April so no promises for the holidays next year. This will be a special year as we'll be together and my grandson is old enough to have some fun.

Thank you for such a great giveaway and a chance to win.

PS. Kristy..I have 5 pairs of diaper covers crocheted-Going to try a knitting pattern next. I'll keep in touch- Happy Holidays!!

Jodi said...

I'm happily following you along. hehe

Thanks for a chance to win.

Lindsay said...

One of my favorite holiday memories is making Christmas cookies. My mom would make a big batch of sugar cookies and let my sister and I cut them out and decorate them.

kathy said...

Great giveaway. Favorite holiday tradition involves Scratch off tickets in our stockings.

Joy said...

My favorite memory is being released from the hospital after having my son on Christmas Eve. Best present ever.

Robin said...

My favorite memories is when my children were little and we would have "ornament day". I would buy all kinds of crafting supplies and we would make all the ornaments for our tree. Those were the best dressed trees ever!

Sharon said...

Hi Kristy, Thanks for stopping by my blog! My favorite holiday memory is shopping for a new ornament each year with my parents. I now have those ornaments for my own tree.

Jingle said...

My favorite tradition is our annual Christmas breakfast! It's a wonderful time to spend together and the food is always SO FABULOUS! jinglesells at gmail dot com

Rachel said...

Wow, thanks for the great opportunity!! I am a sucker for vintage and snowpeople...LOL...Overall my favorite tradition is hot cocoa and decorating the tree as a family. The last two years it has been when my daughter gets home from college (today!!) and the tree trimming has become 2nd. LOL.

Kristin said...

We make froot-loop garlands for the tree every year.

Marcia W. said...

My favorite tradition of Christmas is when all the family gathers together for a mid-day dinner and exchange presents. This year I will get to watch the faces of 3 grandnieces having their first Christmas.

Lael said...

Putting up the tree....pulling all the ornaments out of the box and remembering them is my favorite.

Beth said...

Sue said...

I love that my kids have cooked christmas breakfast ever since my eldest was 5 (he'll be 30 next year). My favorite christmas quote from any of my kids was when the youngest said that she wanted to "wake up while it was peach black"

Martha said...

I love to spend Christmas Day putting a Christmas Puzzle together, eating anything my heart desires...of course, first I watch my two darling kitties open their Christmas presents while I have my morning coffee. I don't mean to sound like Scrooge...but my life is super busy and I hide on Christmas Day and spend it quietly doing what I want to do.

SewLindaAnn said...

Ahh, nothing like waking up to some vintage pictures with my coffee! Love it. Traditions aren't too standard around here. We do usually drive around looking at Christmas lights and watch the Christmas movies starting on Thanksgiving nite.

Sallie said...

Christmas Dinner - standing rib roast and Yorkshire pudding. Thanks for the giveaway! Merry Christmas!

enbartlett said...

I love singing carols with the lights off and the Christmas tree lit up and candles glowing.

Laura said...

I love turning off all the lights except for the tree and just relaxing. Thanks for the great contest.

Needled Mom said...

We have a tradition of baking Christmas cookies with the grandchildren.

Christie S. said...

I always remembered making peanut butter fudge with my Grandma. It came out perfect everytime. She has since passed and I can't not for the life of me get a good batch of fudge.

lemony lucy said...

Oooh, vintage goodies. I like the cooking we do together. Dads egg nog and caramels are delicious and have spoiled me to all others.

Mike and Jackie said...

Favorite Christmas morning was passing out food to the homeless

These are fun! My family has been caroling with a group of friends for about 35 years. I was so little then that as far as I'm concerned, we've always done it. Now I get to go with MY son...love that!

Korrie@RedHenHome said...

Christmas candy is one of my favorite holiday traditions! No cookies in this house ;-)

Kathrynn said...

My favorite Christmas memory is getting our tree and letting the kids decorate it. The ornaments all started at the bottom when they were little. Now that they are grown the tree is a little more balanced, except now the granddaughter is 3 so there are more ornaments at the bottom. Such joy.

Jeanne said...

We spend Christmas with our oldest son and family. The first one up Christmas morning turns on the television to the channel playing "A Christmas Story" all day long. We have so much fun shouting out the lines. It is even better when my son, all 6'8" and 43 years old, puts on his "Ralphie" pink bunny suit. It is so dang funny, I nearly wet myself from laughing every year. We have a blast.

Jeanne said...

I do hang out with you even if you don't have a giveaway. :)

Emily Ricketts said...

I love going to the Christmas tree farm with my family.

Mom C said...

We'd go up the mountain and cut our Christmas tree. Lots of fun but 2 years ago I bought an artificial tree. My husband was undergoing chemo and it was his job to string the lights. Wasn't going to happen that year and he's thanked me ever since so I guess it's a good trade. Thanks for the giveaway.

kimmysue said...

We take turns opening presents on Christmas morning. That way we can see who got what, and it makes the excitement last longer. Sometimes, when there's a house full of people, we'll be opening presents until lunch time!

OhioMomPatriot said...

I like to wake up before everyone else and make a pot of coffee and a pot of hot cocoa, then I go around the house strategically placing trash bags where paper will most likely be thrown. When I have everything set up to make my day easier, I start the Christmas music and sit enjoying the tree. It takes about 5 minutes for everyone to hear the music and come rushing in. Thank you for a sweet giveaway!

OhioMomPatriot said...

I follow you.

Laura said...

We have a Jesse Tree that we put an ornament on every day during Advent. Love doing it with my daughter.
