Christmas is a day of meaning and traditions, a special day spent in the warm circle of family and friends.

Here, have a cuppa virtual eggnog, reminisce, and consider some alternative holiday traditions with us.

Christmas Traditions

Chris Hogue

One of my favorite traditions is unwrapping my gifts, as, slowly, as, possible. This leads to an apoplectic reaction from my wife who has been counting the minutes until she can open gifts since Santa finishes the Thanksgiving Day Parade. It, is, so, much, fun!

I love decorating the Christmas tree with my family. Re-discovering ornaments from my childhood, and from our daughter’s childhoods, is a joy. And I especially love looking at the hand painted ornaments that Chris’ Great Aunt Gene made for him and for us through the years. Our tree is covered in ornaments that hold a lot of meaning to me.

Christmas Traditions

Dr. William Berman

Born and raised in a Jewish family, my favorite Chanukah memory is getting to open one gift every night for 8 nights. My Christian friends envied me.

Christmas Traditions

Annie Matthews

Lutefisk. For those with Scandinavian influences, you know what this is: cod fish soaked in lye long enough to make it gelatinous, purported to produce hair on chests. Once you get over calling it “fish jello,” it’s really not so bad.

Hoping your season is just as special and bright!
