Yes! Another Christmas thread! :evilgrin:

So, share your Christmas Traditions! Heres mine.

My family does things the Danish way. Which means we have Christmas Dinner on the 24th, and we do our Presents then. Generally Santa presents are on Christmas Morning, but ofc we dont really do that anymore. Christmas day we do our Smorgasborg. All you Scandinavians and Baltic peoples know all about that, basically we just eat for a very very long time. Noon till 6:00PM then we bring out the coffee and all the hard liquor. Like Aquavit which is 40-50% alcohal. :beer:So thats Smorgasborg. So for Christmas Dinner and Christmas day we normally have. Me, my little brother, my mom, my dad, my grandma and my uncle. But for the past two years my girlfriend Zoe and her parents have joined us. So we have 9 people for Christmas dinner and for Smorgasborg.

So thats my typical Christmas. :)

We usually go to Christmas Eve Mass the night before at Saint Leo's.

Get up, put on the Santaman hat. If my dad isn't home, wait for him. Then we hand out the stuff, usually we go my grandpa's house.

We tend to have a more or less traditional czech christmas with extra lazyness. Usually we tend to set up the tree on the 24th itself instead of earlier like most.

Don't eat during the day, or at least no meat. In the evening have the normal Christmas dinner of Karp and potato salad and continue towards the presents. That about sums it up.

We don't care much, live a normal day then the next day open presents. Other then that the only unique thing we do is celebrate both Western and Russian Christmas, since there on different days (I think Russian Christmas was like January 9th or 7th).

we have pretty much the same kind of stuff. we eat for many many hours (today we ate for uhm.. 14:00 to 19:00) but ofcourse we have our breaks and coffee pauses and some home-made aqvavit and other home-made schnapps (40%). First we woke up, had some mulled wine outside, had a christmas-sauna, talked some shit for hours and listened to music, then we ate all kinds of fish; e.g. slightly salted salmon, all home-made. and ofcourse salmon-roe, sourcream and red-onion. we still haven't started desserts (and its 20:47) and were getting drunk pretty much and being bored.

Your Hanakuh Tradition? Anyone? Not me. Well, I go to church at midnight on Christmas Eve and then head over to my uncle's the next day. We chill, party, eat, get presents, all that stuff. EDIT: OH BAM! 777 POSTS.

On Christmas Eve we usually go to the Christmas Eve service at our Church in the evening, which usually includes some Christmas songs, advent, and a sermon. On Christmas day we get up around 7AM and someone in our family reads the Christmas story from the book of Luke in the Bible. Then we open the stockings and presents. And at last, prepare for the Christmas dinner at noon. This year, since we live 5hrs away from our extended family, we're having some friends over for Christmas dinner. Christmas is clearly the best time of the year!
