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.

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!
