OOOOO so pretty. My favorite Holiday tradition is chili and cinnamon rolls on Christmas Eve. My dad and his family did it for year and my family still does. Even all of use grown up kids do it when we can't be at my parents for Christmas. It's so cool knowing my whole family is eating the same thing on Christmas Eve even if we aren't together.

Amanda said...

My favorite holiday tradition is decorating gingerbread houses with my daughter!

Katie said...

My favorite holiday tradition is picking out the tree and then bringing it home and decorating the same night. It doesn't feel like Christmas at home until the tree is up and decorated.

SoozeM said...

Such pretty fabric, and I reckon that book would be very handy to have around! Mt favorite tradition is Christmas lunch with my family, my mum is the best cook and everyone is so happy and full of love!

gret said...

A lovely and generous giveaway, thank you! My favourite Christmas tradition is spending Christmas Eve with my family. I love it so much!

Uzi said...

Hi, thinking about Christmas I like the fact that I can spend some time with all the family. Nowadays it's so hard to slow down and sit together for a while. I guess the Chrismats time just reminds me what's the most important for me and what should I take care the most. Cheers!

Leila said...

I lurve that fabric!! Thanks for the chance to win some....
Ok favorite holiday tradition pffff I'm trying to come up with my own traditions since all my family's moved away and we can't spend christmas together anymore so it's all an experiment to me lol! My favorite would be buying a new ornament for my son each year.

grendelskin said...

My favorite tradition is the tree: we go out, as a family, and tag a tree on Thanksgiving weekend, then go out again the weekend before Xmas to cut it down and bring it home. There are few farms that let people tag these days, but the selection of the tree is my favorite part!

Charlotte said...

My favourite holiday tradition is trimming the tree with the kids. I love how excited they get!

Candace said...

My favourite Christmas tradition actually comes after Christmas. I married into a South Louisiana/Spanish expat family and though Noche Buena and Christmas with them is always fun, I love Twelfth Night. It's usually the only part of the holidays my husband and I have together. We spend the day together, making King Cake and taking down the Christmas decorations while celebrate surviving the holidays with champagne.

Erin said...

My favorite holiday tradition is our church service by candlelight on Christmas Eve. I love getting dressed up and singing all my favorite Christmas songs with my family!

Leigh said...

My favorite tradition is corn chowder on Christmas Eve. My mom would start it in the crockpot and the house would smell SO good all day- We'd drive around to look at Christmas lights and then come home and warm up with delicious chowder. Now I make it at my house. Yum!

autumnesf said...

Our favorite tradition is hands down tree decorating night. We put on Christmas music, break out the snacks and eggnog and just have a great time of it. And each year my kids get a new ornament that represents the past year in some way.

hilary said...

My favorite tradition is to visit my parents. We just don't see enough of them!

Sharon said...

I LOVE those fabrics! Tina Givens is a fave of mine.

That's just laying around in your stash? Phew!
Found you through Sew Mama Sew and my fave family tradition is the running around!! My parents have been divorced forever so there's plenty of running to do- we used to 4 turkey dinners in 2 days, we've slowed down a bit now that us kids are getting married and having kids of our own. Will is be so crazy for my kids? Probably not but hopefully they'll love it as kids!

CRN said...

My husband and I will be celebrating our 3rd Christmas. We don't have any traditions at Christmas itself, however, any time we go on a vacation or special day trip it requires bringing home an "ornament" for the tree. This has made us get creative since not every place has a gift shop or an ornament!

sarah in the woods said...

Visiting family out of state.

rebekah said...

We went caroling every Christmas Eve growing up.

endless13 said...

Opening one present on Christmas eve :)

greeblygreebly said...

Vera said...

mmmm.....best thing is to wake up early before everyone and hide a little present for the family under the christmas tree.....make some yummy breakfast and spend half the day in our jammies......

Mystica said...

Thank you for sharing such beautiful fabric and for the link!

Max. H said...

I love baking and decorating holiday cookies! it's become a tradition with the kids!

Laura Reese said...

My favorite holiday tradition is the breakfast we have every Christmas morning of tiny Swedish buttermilk pancakes. They are delish!
laurakreese[at]gmail[dot]com

Cindi said...

I love Santa! You know, the kids have to get to bed early because Santa can't come until they're asleep kinda thing. The Christmas tree with no presents underneath and they (the presents) magically appear on Christmas morning. Not the we open our presents on Christmas Eve kind of thing, because Santa delivers in the middle of the night.

kessilari said...

My favorite tradition is getting our tree. My entire family has gone to the same tree farm in the mountains since I was in kindergarten. We pick out a tree (after much deliberation and argument), and eat candy canes and hot cocoa afterward.

Nick Ashley Reagan Coen & Ike said...

My favorite holiday tradition I inherited from my husband's family. Advent... The 4 Sundays before Christmas we light one candle per Sunday and read stories about the Savior. Then each of the children get a little gift. It's a very nice simple way to keep the focus and the real meaning of Christmas.

Thanks for the giveaway! I'm a beginner, so that booklet would be so helpful!

ashleycardon@yahoo.com

Stephanie and Carlos said...

My favourite holiday tradition would have to be putting the tree up with the kids... although I do not like having to explain that they still have 24 days to wait till Santa comes!! haha

xo Steph

Lizzie Bordello said...

The husband usually has the whole week after Christmas off work, so I always look forward to actually spending some evenings together, several nights in a row, even! :)

Emily said...

I love Toastie Tootsies. At Thanksgiving, everyone picks a name from a hat and we purchase socks for that person. Not just any socks though. Very special socks. Pink camo's for my husband that loves hunting, ballerina toe socks for the 17 year-old boy, Santa socks for the uncle who's little kids don't know his Santa secret. On Christmas Eve we have turkey sandwiches and chips for dinner, do Toastie Tootsies then read the Christmas story from the scriptures and pass around a box of See's candy. Perfect every time!

Denise said...

My favorite tradition is that every Thanksgiving, my Dad and I kickstart the holidays and watch Planes, Trains and Automobiles :)

Prima Donna said...

My favorite tradition is buying pajamas for my grandchildren to open on Christmas eve.

Jiaying said...

We just started this new tradition last year but we're really loving it. We would sit down as a family and each chooses a charitable organization, and the family make a donation to that charity in the person's name. It puts everybody in the spirit of giving for the holidays. Another tradition since my daughter was born is to make a tree ornament with a recent picture of hers and hang it on the tree together. We're making number 4 this year!

Thanks for the giveaway. Love the fabrics.

JD said...

I always loved going with my family to the Christmas tree farm to pick the perfect tree and then my dad cutting it down.

Elizabeth said...

My favorite holiday tradition is cutting down our own tree the Sunday after Thanksgiving!
Happy Holidays!

I also like to have some sort of muffins or coffee cake for breakfast on Christmas morning to go with our coffee. A cup of coffee for my husband and I as we enjoy watching the kids take turn opening presents.

Head over and enter my giveaway, if you haven't already! Merry Christmas!

kimmysue said...

My favorite tradition, which I have done since I was a mere child, is letting everyone open one present on Christmas Eve. It gives a hint of the excitement to follow on Christmas day, but makes the anticipation more bearable.

Painting 4 Him said...

Very nice! I have to say my fav tradition is when my son and I would decorate the house for Christmas, while watching a Muppets Christmas Carol--eating homemade cookies and cocoa. He is 22 now and we don't do it anymore, but maybe it is time to start a new tradition.

Snyder Central said...

I love being at my mom's for Christmas. She always makes an awesome apple cake. So YUM!

Katie said...

I love spending Christmas Eve with my extended family. Thanks for the chance!

PrairiePeasant said...

My favourite holiday tradition is having breakfast with all my family before opening gifts on Christmas morning.

shelly said...

I love Tina Givens! My favorite holiday tradition growing up was the advent calendar. Now that I have my own family and haven't made one for us (for shame, I know), I want to start a new tradition: Christmas Eve pajamas. We never did it growing up, though I know lots of other families that do. I think it sounds like a really fun tradition and one I want to start with my kids.

robin said...

I remember a tradition we had when I was a kid. The rule was that no one opened gifts Christmas Eve until the supper dishes were washed. One year, my cousin and I decided that our moms were just being too slow with the dishes so we took over and finished them up quickly, and after that it was a yearly tradition for the two of us to do the dishes.

Leaving the lights on all night Christmas Eve. I loved that as a kid and to this day my favourite thing is sitting in the living room when the kids and hubs are all in bed, looking at the lights with a hot drink in my hands.

PDX Bride said...

My favorite holiday tradition is when my Dad reads the Polar Express on Xmas Eve, he hasn't done it the last couple years cuz I am the baby at 26, so hopefully he will start again when there are grandbabies!

Duzza Bear said...

On Christmas eve we have just our immediate family and we go for a drive to look at Christmas lights, then we come home and eat hors d'oeuvres for dinner (in the living room- my kids love it because they're never allowed to eat in there any other day of the year.)

Emily @ NewlyWife said...

It's hard to pick a favorite! One unique one that we used to do before getting married was my mom gave a nutcracker to my brother and me every year. It usually represented something in the past year.

Thanks for doing the giveaway! emily at newlywife dot com

Jessica said...

We have avocado sandwiches at my Grammys on Christmas eve, love it! Thanks for the chance!

Ciel said...

Oh my! What a lovely prize!! But what a tricky question, I have no idea how to pick just one Christmas tradition. I love our advent calendar as each day we get a piece from the nativity scene and build our own. I love being with family. I love singing Christmas carols. I love decorating the house. You see, I couldn't pick one, I'm a big kid at heart.

Wendy said...

My favourite holiday tradition is finally flopping down to relax when the christmas presents are made (usually midnight on Christmas eve!) and starting to eat... and eat ... and eat... and not stopping until January 2nd!

Emily said...

Family drives to look at holiday lights tops my list - loved it as a child, love it as a parent. Teaching my toddler holiday songs is a close second!

Bea said...

Thanks for this great giveaway. We don't really celebrate any holidays so we don't really have traditions associated with them. However when a big holiday from any religion (that I know about) comes up I always give my dogs a special dinner treat. Does that count??

Cheers,
Bea

Carrie said...

My favorite holiday tradition is setting out a little antique Santa that I've had since I was little. I call him sticky santa because he is waxy and seems to get stickier as the year goes on. He's my favorite and always makes me smile.

fieryone said...

One of my favourite traditions is to read "The Night Before Christmas". We read it every night the week before Christmas, and we have collected several nice editions of the book to keep it interesting. My kids love it!

My very favorite holiday tradition is exchanging a jar of green olives with my brother and mom. We didn't have a lot of luxuries growing up, but my mom would always splurge and get us a jar of green olives to serve in a little bowl for Christmas dinner.

We still sneak jars into each other's stockings.

My favorite holiday tradition would be walking to church on christmas eve with the whole family. Everybody pretends they are annoied by it and we are always late but there is a lot of goofing around and making jokes on the way over so I would miss it a lot if we just took the car. And it is only a one hour walk :)

What a lovely Giveaway! The fabrics are beautiful! My favorite Christmas tradition is decorating the Christmas Tree and then turning off all of the lights in the house and looking at the tree while listening to Christmas music. Yeah, not so original I know, but it is very wonderful to me!

Great Giveaway!

My favorite tradition is christmas eve. When we were little kids it was just too much to make a fancy dinner christmas eve and christmas day so instead my parents order a platter of lunch meats, and buy some cooked shrimp for dinner christmas eve. We all make our own sandwiches in the kitchen, and stand around the shrimp bowl talking about what we hoped santa would bring and all the things we did wrong that might get us coal. Now that we're older we still do this because it is our own little tradition.

Our favorite holiday tradition (provided we have snow!) is sledding down the perfect kiddy hill we discovered a few years back at a sculpture park. It is very quiet and peaceful there, and sleighing between the artworks adds something special :-)

Thank you for a very pretty and generous give-away! (I discovered your blog through Elsie Marley Kids Clothes Sewing Week and I really like your style & choice of colors and embellishments!)

My favourite holiday tradition is gathering around the piano to sing carols. When I was young, it was with me and my grandparents. As I got older, friends from school would join in. Now the tradition continues with my hubby's family, only with a few guitars thrown in!
