We don’t have a lot of Christmas traditions in our family but we do have a few. The kids help decorate the tree and my husband puts the star on top. And, the night before Christmas (Christmas Eve), the kids each get to open one small gift. It’s generally something practical like pajamas or books rather than one of the “big” presents. I have so many wonderful memories of the kids choosing which ornaments to put on the tree. It seems to change each year as they get older but they have their favorites too.
