Favorite Holiday Tradition?

Unread post by Secularick »

What’s your favorite holiday tradition? Any holiday, not necessarily Christmas.

I’ve never been able to get any good traditions established as an adult but am looking forward to it. Evenings with cocoa and holiday stories, ancient Christmas cartoons that refuse to die, and so on…!

I’ve also always enjoyed the drive around to look at lights. That’s probably the most regularly observed tradition I’ve had. And I can’t wait til my own home is one that will be looked at by others doing that drive!

I can't say that I've regularly observed any traditions. Any time I try to do something, I either fail to get others on board, or I forget about it the next year, or something like a pandemic happens.

I'd love to have a white holiday tree, but instead of only putting it up for Christmas, it stays up all year long and gets redecorated for the different holidays. Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, etc.

If I never do another tradition ever again, that's the one I want to keep up with forever!

I’ve always wanted to do that! And when there is no holiday worthy of decorating for at the time… family interests decorating!

I’d love to have a Borderlands or Star Trek tree a few weeks out of the year, and I’m sure Anya would love a Barbie, American Girl, or whatever tree!

I say rabbit rabbit rabbit every first of the month. Does that count?

But seriously, when my dad was alive he used to make something he called hot noglet during Christmas. It was hot chocolate but he used egg jog instead of milk. It was delicious.

Neither have I. I’m going to get some to make my own hot noglet.
