Besides putting up lights outside the house and a tree in the living room, my family doesn't really do much.

Putting up the tree and decorations. My family gets really crazy with the Christmas decorations so it takes a full day just to get them up (This is inside the house to so we are really the only ones who see them) We also make sure to watch National Lampoo's Christmas Vacation every Christmas.

I wear the most hideous sweater I have at least once in December. There really is nothing like a terrible sweater.

Relatives do! I'm usually incorporated in some way. Being the whiny one that doesn't want to get anything, I'm usually set to work as a slave.

Even trade I'd say, helping out so people can have fun is superior to having the same people give me shelffilling.

Watch Die Hard, It's A Wonderful Life, and play a fuckload of video games. When not doing that, I come up with a laundry list of things I can do with earbuds permanently in and turned all the way up when we go visit relatives.

Singing carols to neighbors and helping the food kitchen out! We also don't give gifts at my house; we give lots of warm love.

Nothing too fancy. Big family party on Christmas Eve and a pretty low key immediate family gathering on Christmas day. I've developed my own tradition in the past few years of watching every 30 Rock Christmas special.

Christmas tree and family get together with a bunch of food on Christmas Eve, so it's basically another Thanksgiving; everyone always comes over to our house. I guess you can consider picking a name out of the hat so we can give each other presents as a tradition, but my family's not doing that this year; too much of a hassle, and we always put a limit on how much you can spend, which makes it hard.

I should say, I don't really like to socialize with my extended family except for my younger cousins, and I don't eat a lot of food on Christmas Eve (or Thanksgiving for that matter). Oh, and usually everyone waked up early on Christmas day, but I don't imagine I'll be getting present, or many presents from my parents this year since I think I'm too old for that. I don't know, I think my parents like to get us presents, but by now, certainly not to the extent as when we were younger, and I'm OK with that. I'm not asking for anything, unless they ask me what I want.

From personal experience, this can be a dangerous game.

Also playing through the annual Assassin's Creed release. I'm breaking tradition this year.
