12 Days of Christmas: Day 1 & Day 2

Yes is it Christmas time!! After all the Countdown to 25 Days of Christmas is on ABC Family!! I saw everyone participating in Molly and Aly's 12 Days of Christmas and I had to join in!!

Day 1 Christmas Traditions:

My family's first Christmas tradition starts on Thanksgiving. That night we all get snuggled on the couch and watch White Christmas to kick off the season. We begin to decorate that weekend both inside and out. We usually don't do lights but we have a big cross and manger that we put in the front yard with a spot light on it.

Then the first weekend in December we go as a family, including the dog, and pick out our Christmas tree! Only real ones for us! Christmas Eve is spent with my Daddy's family and then Christmas morning is just us.

We wake up early and open our "Santa Presents", yes he still shows up at our house. Then we eat a big breakfast while listening to Christmas music. After breakfast we finish presents and of course that wears you out so you have to take a nap! haha!

That afternoon it is time to clean up and we begin to take everything down. Because me worst pet peeve is people who leave up Christmas for too long!

Day 2 Black Friday:

I am not much for Black Friday. Honestly I am afraid of being trampled to death! haha! Really though it is so early and we usually have had a big night the night before. Plus I don't feel like fighting everyone.

I do however love Cyber Monday!!

Which one do you prefer?


  1. Love the cross you guys put out! And Cyber Monday all the way!!!

  2. I much prefer cyber monday than black friday!

  3. Awesome traditions! Love the cross! and I dont black friday either!
