          My favorite Christmas tradition is putting up my felt Advent calendar with 24 days of felt decorations that my mom made for our family some 25+ years ago. Although my kids are grown and out of the house, I still put it up and add the decorations to the tree. Now I send them a picture around December 23 and ask them to guess what hasn’t been added to the tree yet. They think I’m crazy.

          • Tammy Johnson-Janow says:

      Christmas Eve pajamas! Our children wanted to open a gift early so when they were about 4 (oldest now 25) we decided to have a special gift of Christmas Eve pajamas! To this day our children look for the Christmas Eve gift, even though they aren’t always home ❤️

  11. Jan says:

    On Christmas Eve, we usually dress up, have a nice dinner & open extended family gifts. But the best part is that we always read “The Littlest Angel.”

  12. Heather D says:

    My husband and I watch Die Hard every Christmas Eve after the kids go to bed…so nice just the two of us.

  14. Heidi says:

    It would not be the holiday season without watching A Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer on television. Brings me back to my childhood.

  15. Karol Leisy says:

    My husband and I go to a Chinese Restaurant for dinner if the weather allows us to travel. Have done that for the past 20 years, a couple years we had company so added Chinese cuisine to the menu.

  21. Karyn McGrogan says:

    My husband dresses as Santa and we stop at our children’s homes to wish the grandchildren Merry Christmas. We stop on the way home for a slice of pizza and rest before everyone comes to the house on Christmas day.

  22. Kimmy Nelson says:

    Christmas Eve, we go to the last Christmas Service at Bayside church. It starts out with hot chocolate and fun waiting in line to get in, there’s always good entertainment, and great music with Lincoln Brewster, a great message, and ends with singing Silent Night by candle light. It’s a beautiful way to spend the evening.

  23. Mary Holshouser says:

    the stamps don’t look as slick as
    some companies but they are darling.
    My favorite tradition is to turn off all
    the lights on Christmas Eve, except
    for the tree, sit in my favorite chair
    and listen to the Christmas music.
    I can reflect on the past – the good and
    the bad. thanks for the offer of a
    fun prize.

    • Tandara Smith says:

      When my children were small! We would load them in the Card and drive around town and see all the lights. After we would have got chocolate.

  24. Deb Dakken says:

    Potato ball (Norwegian Klub) is a food that was something that my grandmother fed a lot of people during the depression with ingredients readily on hand. It is now a tradition for Christmas eve. We all get in on the process of grinding the potatoes and forming the balls. Then, when it’s time for people to leave for home, each leaves with a baggie of planned leftovers to slice up and fry for Christmas morning breakfast. It just isn’t Christmas Eve without our reminder of our heritage and how blessed we are

  25. Nicole Nardi says:

    My favorite tradition was counting down the days till Christmas with mt daughters with an advent calendar

  26. Lori says:

    It’s so hard to choose! Putting up the tree? Baking Christmas cookies? Going to church on Christmas Eve to see the kids in the play? Maybe best is watching my kids open their stockings in Christmas morning! It’s their favorite.

  27. Mary Beth West says:

    Cute Advent calendar. My favorite Christmas Eve tradition is going to church, always bright with poinsettias, and singing favorite Christmas hymns.

  28. Sondra Myers says:

    Driving around and enjoying all the Christmas lights and animations and non animations. My husband and I get quality time in doing this in this very busy time of the year.

  29. Kerri murphy says:

    Sounds silly but we all whisper a wish in our Christmas wish ball ornaments and place it on the tree. ?

  30. Bobbie Bettis says:

    I love making hand made Christmas Cards and mailing them to family and friends. This once common tradition seems to have been lost in this age of email and Facebook.

  31. Annette Sharp says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is going to a Christmas Eve candlelight service at our church. ❤️

  32. Kam says:

    My family tradition I look forward to eat year is our annual family Christmas on my dads side of the family. Over 150 aunts, uncles, 1st and 2nd cousins!

  33. Sara Pidcock says:

    One of my favorite traditions is Christmas Eve at my grandfathers house. It was the one time of year all of my aunts uncles and cousins were together. We are, hung out, and did a gift exchange. Good times!

  34. Lori Hatton says:

    Like many generations of KINDRED before me, I loved the tradition of attending the candlelight service at church. My mother, with a KINDRED heart, would sing a solo each year. I couldn’t help but feel a KINDRED pride over her accomplishments. My KINDRED heart would swell as I sat with the other assembled KINDRED worshipers. My father, grandparents and my siblings sharing the KINDRED emotions just as I did.

  35. Kathy Riske says:

    I have many but my favorite is opening presents with the Darth Vader Yule Log playing in the background on tv. ?

  36. Kim Knowles says:

    Growing up it was always chili soup with cheese/crackers, veggies, special Christmas ice cream by candlelight. I have continued that through the years with my family.

  37. Meghan Kennihan says:

    HA! Sean! I love it… Outback Steakhouse!
    We read the Polar Express on Christmas Eve, my dad does the sound effects and my mom reads it like you would read to preschoolers… we are 42, 38, 38 and have kids of our own and still do it!

  38. Robyn says:

    Every Christmas Eve my husband and I cook together to make each of our favorite Seafood dishes, king crab legs, steamers, New England lobster…then we have dinner just the 2 of us.

  39. Holly Reifke says:

    Our favorite Christmas tradition is putting on our PJs, filling travel mugs with cocoa or coffee, grabbing a tin of our Christmas cookies, hopping into the car, blasting our Christmas music, and driving around to look at Christmas lights. It’s my absolute favorite thing.

  40. Katie Goode says:

    I love Christmas all around. It’s so hard to choose a favorite tradition. For the past few years it has been taking my young son to old town main street for this adorable Christmas festival called Christmas Traditions. Dozens of people dress up as characters from Christmases past and pass out collector trading cards about the character they represent. It’s like an immersive interactive play that you get to interact with these characters. Some of them include the sugar plum fairy, jack frost, Tiny Tim and scrooge, different cultures of Santa, elves, carolers, and a ton more. Sooooo fun.

    • Gloria Graham says:

      My favorite Christmas tradition is having the family picture taken on the steps before the family comes down in the morning

  41. Amanda L says:

    Spending Christmas Eve with my husband’s family. Both sides of his family gather at his parent’s house and catch up and exchange gifts. It’s so much fun!

  42. Valerie Zangle says:

    My sister and I both take off one full day to make Christmas goodies for our family. It starts with grocery shopping together for ingredients and ends with divying it all up between different family members. It’s exhausting, but so fun!

  43. Nanette Boyer says:

    My favorite memory is at my grandmothers putting up her silver tree with a color wheel. That was so cool. When I grew up and found out the tree cost her $3 and the color wheel $5!

  44. Lourdes Salvador says:

    It’s Christmas Eve and Christmas day for me. Going to my parents house on Christmas Eve and seeing my family and, of course, enjoying all the great food the head chef (my Mom) makes. Then on Christmas Day just relaxing watching movies and enjoying leftovers lol. Merry Christmas!

  45. MaryAnn Rego says:

    We hide a pickle ornament in our tree and all the kids try to find it. Whoever finds it first gets a small gift. It’s so much fun to watch the children get excited to look.

  46. Becca Yahrling says:

    I love the white elephant game we play on Christmas. It’s just a $5. gift and can be quite funny sometimes. Family time is awesome!

  47. Christi says:

    Baking cookies with my daughter and now grandsons. We go through about 25 lbs of flour each year and have so much fun.

  48. Lois A Bak says:

    We have a relatively new tradition in our family. We all gather at my son’s house for breakfast and opening of the gifts. We do, however, repeat a long tradition — the youngest family member distributes the gifts.

  49. Diana Soling says:

    My favorite tradition is opening Christmas jammies with my kids on Christmas Eve. They love getting to wear new ones!

  50. Mary Faith says:

  51. Karen B says:

    We always go bowling as a family Christmas Eve afternoon. Then we have a meal of appetizers and open gifts. Great traditions

    My favorite Christmas tradition is baking cookies with friends and then giving them to friends and family

  53. Karen Lingel says:

    Every year my family has a “Cookie Decorating Competition” — we get together with cookies, icing, and sprinkles and everyone decorates cookies. My little nephew always wins the Lego prize! He is always really proud.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  54. Leah says:

    Hey Sean!!!

    Well, every year we decorate the tree together, and my mom always tells the same stories, but thats what make it so great. I love hearing them, even if its the same story changing a little every time she tells it.

    -Leah Monroe

  55. Jaimi B says:

    Our family goes above and beyond with the stocking stuffers. We outgrew the stockings and now everyone has their own Santa bag, which is often overflowing!

  56. Deena Canup says:

    Every Christmas eve we go to candlelight church service. Then come home and open 1 small gift. Finally after everyone is asleep, I stay up playing Santa…wrapping all the gifts with special paper, stuffing stockings and put under the tree. I eat the cookies, leave crumbs and reindeer hoof tracks on the hearth. Every year!! I love to wrap and watch Christmas movies. Usually takes me to about 4am.

  57. Bernice Pierre says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is decorating the Christmas tree and getting all of our decorations up. We have many ornaments and decorations that each has a story to tell and has awesome sentimental value! We make decorating for the holidays an event in itself!

  58. Donna Smith says:

    Our family is pretty crafty in one way or another, so when we were all past our teens, we decided that we should make our gifts for each other. I love that our family tradition is to have a treasured, homemade gift from each of my siblings AND our parents!

  59. Michelle Johnson says:

    Italian feast o n Christmas Eve with a more traditional turkey dinner on Christmas Day. Walking through Christmas Tree Lane and exchanging gifts!

    Since moving to Florida, our new tradition is to wear matching T-shirts on Christmas Eve – and have a group photo taken under a palm tree!

  62. Kris Dodds says:

    My favorite tradition is our Christmas Eve service at church. We have the Christmas story and lots of singing, but we always end with silent night and candlelight. I love it.

  63. Pam Parker says:

    Favorite tradition is gathering together on Christmas morning and reading the Christmas story from the Bible before we begin to open our presents.

  64. Alexandra Cruz says:

    I wasnt raised with traditions, so the moment I became a mom 25 yrs ago, I knew I wanted to create a tradition that would carry on. So every year we watch the classic Christmas movies like Rudolf and Frosty together. Now that I have a grandson, I hope to include him and see his mommy create their own little traditions. ❤?

  65. Charis Young says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is that we open presents with my mom on Christmas Eve & Christmas morning is just our family!

  66. Angela Hall says:

    Myfavorite holiday tradition is our Christmas Eve celebration. We go to mass and then drive around looking at Christmas lights. While we are gone, our family elf delivers a movie basket filled with a new movie, popcorn, candy, and hot chocolate. We open our new pajamas, then watch the movie together. After the kids go to bed, my husband and I watch White Christmas together and put all the presents under the tree

  69. Heather Bastian says:

    My favorite is a delicious lasagna dinner at my parents house, followed by hours of playing board games with my extended family, and lots of snacks. We catch up and laugh until the wee hours of the morning. It’s the best!

  70. Brenda Crawford says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is baking with my friend Trina. My mother has passed and her mother is in a home and so we get together to celebrate our mother’s and bake our families favorite goodies. It brings us such joy.

  71. Linda Peterson says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is getting together with my family Christmas Eve and going to our beautiful church service.

  73. Tina Voss says:

    I love spending Christmas day in comfy clothes (pjs) and having my adult children around as we have a lazy day opening gifts and playing board games.

  74. Vickie Turcotte says:

    My favorite tradition is getting together with extended family on Christmas Eve for Christmas soup! It’s just a tomato chicken noodle soup but it’s yummy and extra special served with love.

  75. Carol Douglass says:

    My favorite tradition is hosting the family Christmas , usually on New Years Day. Lots of fod, fun and laughter.

  76. JUSTINE M PAULIN says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is opening up our stockings on Christmas Eve. My husband and I started that tradition because I couldn’t wait for Christmas to come. At one point, he got me one of those stockings you could stand in.

  77. Judy Burger says:

    My favorite tradition is Christmas breakfast with the kids and grandkids. I love seeing them in their Christmas pajamas, eager for the rest of the day.

  78. Jean Levesque says:

    Since all of our children have started their own lives and live in different states, our family tradition now is to just sit home relax, eat a great meal together and watch football. Doesn’t seem like anything special but my husband and I enjoy it.

  79. Pamela Seely says:

    We started a Christmas fruitcake tradition a few years ago. I bought a fruitcake (yuck!), wrapped it in tinfoil and ribbon and gifted it to someone at our annual Christmas Eve party. They had to freeze it and pass it along to someone else the following year, etc. We want to see how long we can keep the fruitcake – maybe our grandkids or great-grandkids? (O: This was started based on a joke I heard that there is only one fruitcake in the world that just keeps getting passed around!

  80. Doris Mitton says:

    My favorite would be getting together with my family members to make cookies and chocolates. Wrapping them all up for all our friends and family to enjoy.

  81. Shawn Elliott says:

    My favorite is making chocolate mice for Christmas Eve and eating them while reading “The Night Before Christmas”, then we open stockings.

  82. Lori Moss says:

    We really don’t have any, but….we are in the process (as in spent last nite there) of moving into our 30 Travel Trailer full time and will be making new ones starting this year. I know they will be good ones!!

  83. Heather says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is putting as many lights on my little tree and listening to the shock from the family when it still isn’t as bright as they think it will be. That, and adding to my glass ornament collection.

  84. Ann says:

    In my town on Christmas Eve morning at 8 a.m. we have a Stress Buster 5k which I co-ordiate. We finally earned enough money from it to build a new Playground for the kiddies. It will be dedicated soon. It is attende by 500+ people.

  85. Janet Harris says:

    My favorite is now a memory, but while my Mom and Brother were still alive, we would bundle up on Christmas Eve and go Caroling in the neighborhood!

  86. Sharon O says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is unpacking the tree trimmings and remembering the source of each precious ornament I have! Some are from former students and some are from far-away places but the memories are all invaluable!

  87. Ruth says:

    Our tradition is we all decorate the tree together, with our own ornaments. Ever since my children were babies they have received at least one ornament every year. They each have their own box and they decorate the tree with their own box of ornaments. They also UN-decorate too which is always a plus! They love remembering their old phases of what they liked as a child as they hang their ornaments from strawberry shortcake dolls to the old original star wars and teenage mutant ninja turtles. My grandsons have now joined in and since the return of some of the old classics they love helping their uncles decorate.

  88. Pat says:

    First one up Christmas morning starts the oven and the coffee. I put the cinnamon buns in the oven and we start opening gifts. When the kids/grandkids are young I manage to eat most of the rolls because they are busy ripping off paper wrap, but as they get older I have to share…….

  89. Amy Estrada says:

    We like to pile up in the car with our hot chocolate thermos and Christmas cookies to see the Christmas lights around town. We sing to the songs on the radio as we drive around. Kurds a great time!

  90. Hafrún Ásta Hafsteinsdóttir says:

    In Iceland it’s tradition to give books for Christmas so most books are published before the holidays and I have to get at least one book. So my favorite tradition is to cozy up with my book on Christmas day eating chocolates and traditional Icelandic leafbread that we make in the beginning of Christmas. We made them yesterday.

  91. Andi Z says:

    It’s not really a tradition since I don’t share it with anyone, but my favorite Christmas thing is playing Christmas carols on the piano. I love pulling those music books out and playing all my favorites.

  92. Vicki Rozema says:

    My favorite tradition is decorating our tree with our grandson. I adore that he tends to cluster all the ornaments in one area on the lower part of the tree. The first couple of years I would secretly re-distribute the ornaments so they were more even, but now I leave them as a reminder that he has been our little tree elf.

  93. Susan Vitti says:

    Our favorite tradition is going out for a fish dinner, placing Angie Angel on the top of the tree and then going to midnight mass. Finishing up with egg nog and a cookie by the fire.

  94. Besa Gaynor says:

    My favorite tradition is our Gingerbread House making contest. We get several kits, and then team up and get creative. Everyone wins, of course. Best roof, best color combination, best trees, best walkway, etc. Everyone smiling, everyone happy.

  95. Joni E says:

    Thanks for the chance to win! Our favorite Christmas tradition is that we play bingo at home on Christmas Eve.

  96. Michelle Christ says:

    My favorite tradition is putting up the tree the day after thanksgiving. It gets my holiday spirit going and for me it is truly the beginning of the Christmas season.

  97. Ann Edwards says:

    My favorite Christmas tradition is the games we play as a family on Christmas night. After all the presents are opened and the little ones are occupied with their new toys, the adults play a game that involves getting presents in a fun way.

  98. Bonnie Shaul says:

    I really like the way the people look like real people, this would be great to use when I want to stamp people.

  99. Debra A Fulton says:

    I won’t laugh at yours, if you won’t laugh at mine. My favorite Christmas tradition is flying to Las Vegas. 15 years ago, my husband and I flew to Vegas on Christmas day so we could get married on the 27th. It was fantastic and we do it every five years to celebrate our anniversary. I give the airport and airline workers mini boxes of chocolates.

  100. Renee Thompson says:

    One of my favorite things to do when my kids were little was get their jammies on, grab a hot chocolate, and drive around looking at Xmas lights. Now they’re older but when they’re around we still try and do it!

  101. Velma Jurrus says:

    Mine is old-fashioned I guess, My favorite is Christmas Stockings with my Dad when I was little. He has been gone a long time but the memories are still there.

  102. Beckie Whitby says:

    My favorite tradition is giving my family and friends homemade Christmas cards that my husband and I send. We write a heartfelt sentiment inside, and love to see each recipient’s reaction when they open the card. Priceless!

  103. Joanne Duddy says:

    Opening the stockings Christmas morning before the sun is even up because the kids can’t wait to see if Santa came

  104. Katie Westog says:

    Mine is going to church with the family, eating a tasty dinner and watching the kids open presents

  105. Jean Marmo says:

    We have many – hunting for the perfect tree, dated ornaments, frosting cookies, but photos with Santa is my fave! I don’t care that they are in their 30s:):):)

  106. Andrea Hill says:

    My Favorite Christmas tradition is finding the most difficult puzzle to put together and have it complete before the 1st. We sit around and talk, eat my Mom’s Christmas cookies, all hoping to win bragging rights for putting in the last piece.

  107. Olga Tate says:

    Happy Holidays! ?My favorite Christmas tradition is to go looking for an animated Christmas character with my son; he chooses the silliest and it is the first thing we put under our Christmas tree.

  108. Lisa says:

    I make sweet bread to eat on Christmas day while my family is listening to the audio book “The Christmas Box”. The sweet bread has been passed down for generations and I want to pass it to my daughter.

  109. Jane Kimball says:

    We put the manger up on Dec 1 with no baby and the children each had a manger. They put straws in their manger for each good deed they did so the baby would have a soft bed to lay in on his birthday.

  110. DeeLee says:

    Most favorite Christmas tradition is waking up to presents under the tree from Santa! My kids are all order now but still hide the gifts and stick them under the tree when they fall asleep Christmas Eve. I love the look in their eyes when they wake up to see the tree full

    One of our traditions is to let the children open a small gift on Christmas Eve. It usually gets them even more excited for Christmas.

    Cookie baking. There are eight of us. We bake. Have a huge pot of chili going and our husbands, kids, friends stop in for a libation, bowl of chili and to “steal” a cookie or two. Then we each bring a gift and have an exchange. An all day affair!!!

  123. Bonnie says:

    I love Kindred Stamps and have several of their sets. Awesome prize! My favorite Christmas tradition is only about 6 or 7 years old. My siblings and I got tired of exchanging presents and decided we wanted more time together without the kids around. So every year, we go out to dinner at a really nice restaurant. It’s the siblings, partners, our parents and now our cousin and her wife that live it town. It’s always a fun night

  124. Allison Anne says:

    Our favorite holiday is the expo holiday…but for Christmas we don’t have any traditions that stick… we are always doing something new, so that’s always fun!

  125. Darci says:

    Every year we read “The Night Before Christmas” to our children. Now to our surprise they ask us to read it to our grandchildren. It makes it so very special that it is a fond memory for them.

  126. Renee Bennett says:

    On Christmas Eve, my husband and I celebrate by putting on some Christmas music and opening our gifts at midnight. Then I put the turkey in the oven to cook low and slow all night. Christmas dinner is at our house and we are so busy Christmas day that we don’t have time to open anything. So we started opening our presents at midnight. Happy Holiday to you and yours.

  127. Marlene says:

    We have a train that goes downtown Vancouver on two Saturdays. I go both days with friends, have dinner at the Spaghetti Factory and see the gingerbread houses at the Hyatt. We hand out care packages to the homeless.
    love your stamps!

  128. Diane G says:

    Early dinner and walk the neighborhood seeing the lights. Then off to 2nd house for desserts and a walk through this neighborhood checking out more lights and decorations. Fun for all ages.

  129. Lisa 4 says:

    My favorite as a child was that we would go to Christmas Eve services then go to a farm a few miles away to see their lights and wood cutouts. Every year they added something to the farm and it was fun trying to find the new item. After that we would go home and open presents

  130. Karen Chester says:

    We always go ice skating on the 25th of Dec. and meet lots of friends there at the rink. Have a super holiday everyone!

  132. Sandra Fisher says:

    I know, I know. My kids are all in their 30’s but I still hide the Christmas presents until Christmas morning. I still fill their stocking and even buy gag gifts. I want them all home for Christmas with a ton of presents under the tree!

  133. Nan says:

    Our tradition is to get up late and be lazy. Casually have some fruit, make a fire in the fireplace, then pick a Santa for the day. The Santa grabs a gift from the tree and hands it to the recipient. We all open our gifts one at a time.

  134. Joan Howaniec says:

    My favorite tradition is when we break the opatki wafers with family and wish everyone Christmas blessings . This is a Polish Christmas tradition that we’ve done since I was a child.
