    There are a ton of holidays this time of year, and everybody seems to celebrate in a different way. So I'm curious about the kinds of traditions people here celebrate, either currently, or in the past.

    For my family, we've got a whole ritual thing going on Christmas Eve. After dinner me and my siblings put on a nativity, complete with props and thrown together costumes. My dad then leads us in a kind of candlelight ceremony. Then all of us kids choose our stockings (we switch off every year) and have some ice cream. One or two of the bowls of ice cream always has a nut at the bottom, and the ones who get the nuts are the ones who pass out presents in the morning. When it's time for bed, me and my siblings all sleep on the floor of the playroom and fall asleep to a movie. Then in the morning when all of us are awake, (and my parents are awake) us kids line up in height order to go into the living room where the tree is. We used to go in height order, but these past few years we've noticed that some of the younger ones are now taller than some of the older ones.

    Throwing tomahawks (I know, hear me out).

    We go out and look at the Christmas lights on the Eve and all that, etc etc. Go out to dinner, and come back home to sleep, but the morning of Christmas, as everyone arrives, we have a throwing contest with these axes against targets in the backyard. Whoever throws the best gets an extra, pre-determined present! Usually it's something neat like a coffee mug and set of coffee beans or etc. :)

    I'm the only person who really has a tradition to do during the holidays. While they talk and eat cookies, I make it a point to get at least one picture done in the week leading to Christmas. With it down, I begin to snuggle with all my animals, since I actually see it as a sign of good luck and youth (sad, I know). But this is just me, so it's nothing special. I'm a weirdo in my family... Have been and always will be.

    My Christmas is spent in Jacksonville, Florida, with many cousins, aunts, and uncles who live there. (Of course, since we only see them twice a year, I barely know any of them.) This tradition has been around since my dad was a kid. We have to wake up early (6 am) and get ready to drive over (and it’s a 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive). We stay for the whole day, having brunch and dinner, then we drive home and then open presents.

    In our country, we always have a dinner with the family during the winter solstice, and one during Christmas Eve. My grandparents on my dad's side come over.
