The only tradition I have is putting up a tree for Christmas.
Do ya'll have any holiday traditions?
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.
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.
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.
