The question of the day is: What are some of your favorite family traditions? What are some traditions you want to begin?
We seem to have so many Christmas traditions in our family, from watching It's a Wonderful Life (in black and white, of course) on Christmas Eve to opening gifts at home in our pajamas before going out to visit family to having huge dinners, both on Christmas Day and Christmas Eve.
One of our family traditions is to take "bow photos." When I was little, one of my grandmas always wrapped gifts in the most beautiful paper, topped with every type of ribbon and bow you can imagine. As we opened the gifts, we would put all the ribbons into a pile, than decorate one another with them when we were done. Now I've carried that on with my little one, with help from the rest of the family, of course.

Great idea on the fun photos. Your family will always remember doing that!
Oh wow, look at all those stockings!
Great photos! Thanks for sharing!
We always decorated people with bows too. Only it was as we were unwrapping them, we'd turn to whomever was sitting next to use and put the bow on their head.
What a unique family tradition. Glad you can continue it in your own family.
My gram took her gift wrapping very seriously, also. The bow photos are the BEST! Thank you for sharing.
