Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE CHRISTMAS.    But for some reason this year, it just crept up on my way faster, than I expected.  I was hoping to have everything made and the few things that had to be bought.  I am no where near ready for Christmas, let alone in the Christmas spirit.   Maybe I got burnt out on seeing Christmas items way back in October, but for some reason, I feel like I need more time to get ready.    I love spending time with family and friends, I love the tradition that our families have.   Some are more annoying than others, but they are still fun.   I love the meaning of Christmas and what that means for us all.

My family
opens one present and their stockings, we then make breakfast of potato pancakes, which are LOADED with garlic and we have bacon and orange juice.  We then start unwrapping presents, we are not ALLOWED to rip the wrapping paper unless we have permission from my parents.  We all take turns opening one present at a time, and we don’t move to the next person until everyone has seen the previous persons present.   We usually then stop at around 1 or 2 in the afternoon, we finish off any left over potato pancakes, and then start a family project or take naps.  We then finish unwrapping any presents that are left, and start putting together a puzzle.

My husbands family
Makes sure that at least one of the first presents that is opened are pajama’s and if anyone wants they can change into them.  They rip the paper and no one has to wait turns, but you do have to make sure you show the gift to everyone.
