Blog Hop - Favorite Christmas Tradition

There was a tradition started in my family about ten years ago and it's still going strong. It's our annual Candy/Cookie Day. Every year the adult girls of the family get together a week before Christmas and make candies and cookies all day long. We bring our dishes and ingredients over to my sister's house and make up the goodies. The kids help by putting on the sprinkles or dipping the chocolate. It's messy and exhausting, but worth all the love that is put into it. After all the goodies are made, we divide them up onto trays and take the trays to our friends and other loved ones.

This year the tradition will continue, but the routine will be a little different. Instead of being crowded and practically on top of each other, we will be making our cookies and candies in our own homes. We will then get together at my sister's house on December 13th with our creations and divide them up onto trays at that time. My birthday will also be celebrated that day. Yay! I'll get cake and presents. We also plan on watching a Christmas movie and having a meal. Our annual Candy/Cookie Day is a tradition that I hope lasts for many more years.

Do you have any Christmas traditions that you hold dear?
