Q&A Friday!!!!

During this first week of December, noodlers, honoring this month's Home for the Holidays theme, have waxed nostalgic about television and movies celebrating the holiday season and about Christmas tree tinsel.

What are some holiday traditions you and your family follow?

The one tradition that's stayed unchanged is my family's big party in the community my great-grandparents moved to early in the 20th century.
Sixty or eighty of us from four or five generations get together on the same weekend every year and talk and eat and talk some more. Once in a while, a kid will sing or play the trumpet. Enjoying each other's company (and trumpet solos) is a fantastic way to keep family roots alive and healthy!

I know that Noodler Lee McKenzie has a lot of other traditions – you can read about some of them on page 12 of the current issue of Victoria Boulevard Magazine

Happy Holidays!

Rachel, that sounds like a lovely tradition, and filled with so many good memories!

We do the regular things, Christmas tree, cookies. The girls always pick a charity to give to.

Thank you SO much for sharing that link, I love Lee and it was fun to read the article. Actually, the entire magazine was great, I could shop forever with what was listed, and the best part? The very handsome man on page 6 or 7 would make a totally excellent hero. Seriously, ladies, go over and look. He's scrumptious. :)

Oh, Rachel, thanks for the link!

And Gillian, that's a great idea, to have your girls pick out a charity to give to. I like that.

We decorate and make cookies, but I think I need to find some new traditions. This year we'll be spending christmas in the snow. I can't wait!

How nice that you and your girls pick a charity to give to during the holidays. That's a great tradition!

I love the cookie baking tradition your family has. Once my nephew gets a bit older, I'm going to suggest my sister and I do that with my daughter.

So where are you going for holiday snow?

I don't think we have any special traditions! Or maybe what we do feels so normal to us that they don't feel like traditions.

One I enjoyed when I was a child was we entered the living room, where the Christmas tree was, youngest to oldest. Then we each took a turn opening a present, youngest to oldest, including the folks. You could choose one for yourself or give one to someone else. Made Christmas morning last all morning long, and you were able to see what everyone else got.

Rachel, thanks for posting the link to your article! I feel like such a star!

By total coincidence, I wrote about my family's cranberry tradition on my blog yesterday!

Love you back, Gillian!

Judy, my family has a similar tradition. We take turns opening gifts, one at a time, and make the fun last as long as possible.

I love the holidays!

That's probably what it is. Sometimes families create their own traditions based on what they do. For example, my dad always made brandy alexanders during the holidays, so we expect it. Also, we always put on the Alvin and the Chipmunks album/tape/cd because we loved it as kids.

What a great tradition!
