Favorite Christmas Traditions

Favorite+Christmas+Traditions

JUPITER CHRISTIAN SCHOOL – Everyone has at least one favorite Christmas tradition, whether it’s going on vacation or opening a gift before Christmas. We all have something special that we do for Christmas. This article will share Rowan Krukeja’s, Livia Dunagen’s, Olivia Schnouer’s, Beau Dillon’s, and Kiley Dore’s favorite Christmas traditions!

To begin with, Rowan Krukeja’s favorite Christmas tradition is, “Opening one present on Christmas Eve.” She said that this tradition started due to everyone begging to open just one present before Christmas. Rowan’s favorite thing about this tradition is being with her family. To Rowan she enjoys being with her family and having fun together, as well as having fellowship with others.

Livia Dunagan enjoys going on Christmas vacations with her family. Something that is special to Livia about her tradition is that, “We get to experience new things together as a family.” Many people travel and go out of town during the holidays. Vacations are a way to unplug, settle down, think and focus on what’s important, and feel at peace. Livia enjoys going to new places and spending time with her family during Christmas.

Next, Olivia Schonauer said that, “We put cards on the Christmas tree.” She added that it’s a fun way to give out cards to people. Livy’s favorite part about her tradition is, “We get to hide the cards in the tree, and they have to dig them out.” This is Olivia Schonauer’s favorite tradition because it is interactive, fun and you get to hang out with family as you do it.

In addition, Beau Dillon loves to go to his grandma’s house with his cousins. Beau’s favorite part about his tradition is, “Getting presents and bonding with my family.” Beau said that something special about his tradition is, “My grandma and grandpa getting gifts more and more for their old and new grandchildren.” This is Beau Dillon’s favorite tradition.

Finally, Kiley Dore enjoys the Christmas pickle. You hide the pickle ornament on the tree, and come Christmas day, the first one to find it gets a reward. Kiley said, “It’s a really fun way to start off Christmas morning.” The Christmas pickle is also a good excuse to get the family together and have fun. Kiley also said, “My dad did it when he was a kid.” Which is cool the fact that they’ve carried on the tradition for so long.

To sum it all up, most favorite traditions include things or activities with family involved. Family is so important, and it’s important that they are always there to lift you up and to be by your side. Family is always a blast during the holidays. I can’t wait to continue my Christmas traditions this year. Merry Christmas!
