I quite like family Christmas traditions, not that I ever had any, but I like the idea.
Both my DD's now have a tradition of one present being opened before bedtime Christmas eve and that present is new pyjamas, that way the children all look lovely the following morning when opening their presents. This year I bought all the pyjamas
I was speaking to a neighbour yesterday who is less than happy about some of his wife's family tradition. Particularly the one that means the whole family catch the 6:30am bus on Christmas eve, into town so they are outside M&S when they open. They then rush into the food hall to buy the veg for Christmas dinner and then come home on the 8:30 bus. This despite the wife working in a local supermarket!
Personally I'd rather have a lie in and a bacon sarnie!
He said there other family tradition seems to be that on Boxing day, they throw away 70% of the food they bought, including the M&S veg as 'Christmas is over now the food will have gone bad'.
I told him what I do with my leftovers and how everything is planned, some stuff is frozen and that nothing is wasted. I was tempted to ask him for the stuff they were throwing away, but I restrained my self.
