On Christmas Eve, the whole family gathers and my grandparents' house. Granny has the tables set with the fine china (no surprise there!), and on each place rests a Christmas popper. Right before dinner everyone pops their popper to find a prize and a paper crown, which must be worn throughout the meal. They make everyone a little more colorful...
For Christmas morning, Granny makes her famous Christmas Bread, a sweet, delicate bread topped with sugary glaze and red and green maraschino cherries. It's wonderful with a little bit of jelly or just some butter. Last year she didn't make it, and it was quite the controversy! But everyone can calm down - she's making it this year.
My mom started a new tradition last year. On Christmas Eve everyone gets the gift of new pajamas. Now everyone can look cute on Christmas morning.
What are some of your Christmas traditions?
