I'm a traditional kind of gal.
I love things that make me all teary eyed and nostalgic.
We had a few simple Christmas traditions. We always had a family party Christmas Eve and then we each opened one gift. And it was never PJ's. My mom let us open whatever present we wanted. One year it was lip gloss. Another year it was the much anticipated Paula Abdul cassette.
Christmas morning meant Peanut Butter Captain Crunch cereal. We always had "family presents" which usually meant some sweet movies like "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" or "Batman".
I'm always curious to know what other traditions are out there that people enjoy. So I did a little research and learned that..
1.) imagine the happiness on a little boy/girl's face when they receive that letter from Santa and his elves. So cute
2.) people unselfishly give up hours and hours of their own time to serve others. Talk about giving!
