Here is to celebrating Christmas traditions!

We want to start off today by extending our warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas to every one of our followers from all over this incredible world!

The season is filled an amazing array of family Christmas Traditions.

There is of course for so many, including us, the thrill of heading to grandmothers house for Christmas dinner. (See : The Tradition of Christmas Night at Grandma’s House)

For others, it may be the fixing of a special Christmas ham. Or perhaps a special dish or dessert.

And for still more, taking part in long-standing Christmas traditions of caroling, playing games, or taking sleigh rides through snow-covered woods.

For some, it will be the tradition of a sleigh ride on Christmas Day.


As crazy as it sounds, our little Old World Garden blog has grown to have followers in all 50 states, and 260+ countries and territories around the world.

And our annual “Christmas Comment Check In” gives all of those folks from all over a chance to share a little of their Christmas with everyone!

Who Knew There Was A Christmas Pickle?

In past years, we have learned of so many special traditions that take place on this wonderful day.

Traditions like finding the Christmas Pickle on the Christmas tree on Christmas morning.

The Christmas Pickle game was a new one for us!

As one of our followers informed us, it has been passed down for decades and practiced in many places.

It involves the hiding of a special pickle-shaped ornament on the Christmas tree. And whoever finds it first on Christmas morning receives an extra present!

For us, it was a new one!

    I pass on the traditional cookies of Christmas to dear ones. I make Madeleinnes to honor my French momma and Ricotta cookies to honor my Italian dad.
    Hope everyone had a grand holiday!

    The tradition that I miss the most is the entire extended family gathering at my Grandparents farm the weekend closest to Christmas. This time was Christmas to me, not the actual day when we stayed at home.

    Our non-traditional tradition: my husband is a paramedic so some years he has to work and some not. So every year is different. Our children have never done the whole Santa thing. This year he was at work Christmas Eve and Day, a 48 hour shift, so we had a playdate with another family who was also Dad-less today. They don’t do the Santa thing either and their Dad was staffing the same 48 at the homeless shelter they run. So we not-celebrated Christmas together, LOL! Thanks for your blog!

    We will be going to see my sister this afternoon for a visit. No meal! She always has lots of home made pies, cake and candies.
