25 Fun Family Christmas Traditions

My dad is in a care home and I got a call today to ask for permission  for them to take him out tonight to see the Christmas Lights. What a conundrum this simple task got to be! Unfortunately I live 2 provinces away and I am unable to do this myself. It is great that they do this for the residents.  So I started thinking about Family Christmas Traditions  that I grew up with and I thought I would  share them.

Some of these are traditions that I grew up with, we do every year with my children. A few of these I have never done and I think they might end up being new traditions. I am sure that there are many more that could be added to this list.
