Christmas Traditions


STEFANIE: With my parents, we open up one present each on Christmas Eve. And for the last 29 years, the present my mom just HAPPENS to pick has always been a new pair of pajamas for everyone. JOE: I leave my Christmas tree up until Deliverance Day, which falls on the fourth Sunday of March, at which point I unwrap all the presents that have accumulated under the tree for the past three months. My friends come over to watch because they think it’s hilarious. ALLISON: My favorite Christmas tradition is eating chocolate snowmen for breakfast on Christmas morning while watching “A Christmas Story.” CARMEN: We kick off the Christmas holiday every year with our favorite flick, “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” Our first showing is always Thanksgiving night. MARIA: I kick off Christmas with matching pajamas, even though Carlos hates it. The house is filled with traditional Spanish and Puerto Rican food along with coquito (with rum). Then, we play a good hand of dominoes with family and friends. This usually lasts until the end of summer. These are our traditions, and we would love to hear yours. We hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Christmas traditions create memories that last a lifetime. They bring families closer and create opportunities to spend quality time with family, friends, neighbors, and others. So, this year, we decided to start a new tradition at the firm. Every year, we have a potluck Christmas lunch where everyone brings something special. We shut off the phones and spend time together. To get a jump-start on the Christmas season, we asked everyone to tell us about one of their Christmas traditions. So here it goes! MARJORIE: My favorite Christmas tradition is getting everything set up late on Christmas Eve for Christmas morning. We make sure that the gifts are under the tree, Santa has milk and cookies, Christmas music is cued up, and the video camera is set up on the tripod with a fully loaded battery so we can record every minute of the Christmas morning festivities in our matching pajamas! AMY: In our home, Christmas kicks off right after Thanksgiving dinner with family, and all the cousins get together while we “map” out our Black Friday runs while we’re watching “A Christmas Story” and another favorite, “The Night Before.” Then we just usually come back to the house and eat some more, stay up late, and play board games. LAUREN: Growing up, it was always a tradition to bake what seemed like a year’s worth of Christmas cookies. We would spend days in the kitchen making all sorts of them (my favorite is still butterscotch!) and

then indulge on Christmas Day while taking our family photos. AMANDA: Christmas Eve was and is always my favorite. My grandma (who passed but is still with me), cousins, aunts, and uncles all come over for food and fun. KATHY: My Christmas starts off with the huge newspaper on Thanksgiving where I map out my Black Friday shopping day; The newspaper is a must for this! Christmas morning starts with my famous hash brown casserole, followed by a relaxing day with my kids and grandchildren, and then finding room in the house for all the new toys. NATHALIE: After spending time with family on Christmas Eve, on Christmas Day, my husband and the kids decorate gingerbread cookies and watch Christmas movies. I think we have seen “Home Alone 2” a little too much, but it’s definitely a favorite in my home. CHRISTIE: My family always cooks a huge breakfast on Christmas morning with homemade biscuits, grits, country ham, and red-eye gravy. ASHLEY: My favorite tradition is having everyone over for breakfast on Christmas morning and watching my nieces and nephews open their gifts. CASEY: My favorite Christmas tradition is having my entire family over to my home on Christmas Eve.
