We have cherry pie on Christmas morning for breakfast. We eat Santa's leftovers. My daughter says its Santa's favorite because his big red belly looks like a cherry! - girlonfire  54.1 #106 11:23AM
I love having Cherry pie for breakfast! My Grandma makes my Uncle bring down cherries from PA. Awesomeness! - justGoofin  162.8 #57 12:05PM
I might have to start that one! - goofygal  11972.0 #7 7:44PM
Every Christmas Eve we get together with my dad, grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousins. My grandma makes dinner and we exchange gifts. Then at midnight my hubby and I sit around our tree and exchange. On Christmas Day we go to my moms house and she makes dinner and we exchange. I look forward to that dinner the most because that side of my family their is only my mom left. So our dinner consists of family recipes that have been passed on from my great great grandparents. - Schramke  706.0 #13 1:04PM

Christmas Eve is spent at my mom and dads. There is a buffet of favorites everyone brings something for the table. This year it is going to be a pajama theme and we are going to watch polar express and have hot cocoa and cookies. The kids are goin to love it. Christmas Day my kids and grandkids come over in the morning for brunch we open presents watch Christmas parade and then have dinner. This year they want to add a football game to it somewhere and they say me and my husband have to play--well see. I called steady quarterback! - mmddgp  1179.2 #7 1:39PM

We started a fun tradition last year of ordering Chinese food Christmas Eve and having a fun family night followed up by reading 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. Christmas Day, we go to my mom and dads for dinner with family to exchange gifts. My mom usually cooks, but this year, my brother and I are cooking to give her a break because of her health! - ncjal  319.2 #28 3:02PM

On Christmas Eve we build a fire and watch Scrooge (Alastair Sim). Usually fall asleep in the middle of the movie (with sugar plums dancing in my head) and wake up at the ending. God bless us, everyone! ✨ - jacdanfan  12371.4 #6 7:22PM

We basically pray every night to a pesebre from Dec 16th thru Dec 24th . Its called a (Novena) after we do that we eat traditional Colombian treats or extra snacks for the kids. If u want to Google the word PESEBRE or NOVENA I think u will get a better understanding. Its hard for me to translate it. Its a very important tradition for us. - yessy  258.5 #37 4:29AM
We also open the presents on the 24th at midnight no earlier than that. - yessy  258.5 #37 4:30AM
