  1. Wow, what a gorgeous necklace!

    One of our Christmas traditions is using a large handmade felt advent calendar that my mom made when I was little. It has a little pocket for days 1-24 and every day there is a little note with a fun activity to do. I'm doing it with my kids now and it adds even more excitement to this fun time of the year :)

  10. That is one beautiful necklace you're giving away, Jess. I'd feel very lucky to win it.

    Christmas tradition: We actually started a new one last year. We no longer give presents to family and friends (with the exception of "children"). Instead we give the money we would have spent on gifts as donations to the local food banks. And we ask that family and friends do the same with any money they may have spent on us...but that's entirely up to them, of course. This lets this holiday really be about love and sharing for us.

    ReplyDelete
  11. My fav way to celebrate is to put up a big-ass tree and hang up all the photo ornaments we put together each year.

  17. Simply lovely, Jess!

    A Christmas tradition that I hold near and dear to my heart is the corn & oysters casserole that my beloved grandmother would make every year. It might seem silly to have such an attachment to a food...but with my grandmother gone, it is one of the things I do that makes it feel like she is still here with me. :)

    So it's my bday and I'm sicker than a dog, 4th day now...gah. Something about Christmas always brings the flu!! Okay, that was depressing but I guess a 'real' tradition would be all of the family putting up the tree together and listening to Christmas tunes and putting up our homemade ornaments. Simple but fun.

  30. Beautiful!

    The only tradition that I've developed is buying myself a great Christmas present each year. My family always bought what they thought I wanted instead of listening to what I like, so gift giving has been a disappoint for me. (Not trying to be a downer!)

  35. Love the necklace, it's just gorgeous! Our Christmas tradition is to go and visit our parents. We go to my Mom's Christmas Eve and spend Christmas Day with my in-laws (who are wonderful). They live 3 hours away so we usually take a few days off so we can spend time with everyone.

  38. Would love to win - your work is soooooo incredible! One of my favorite traditions is that Santa brings new PJs for e eryone on Christmas Eve while we are at church - love snuggling into new PJs!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Christmas tradition: When I was growing up, there were 2 musical bells that would hang in the doorways going into the kitchen and into the dining room. I would stand in the doorway looking up at the bells until someone came along to lift me up so I could pull down the string to start them playing "Jingle Bells". And don't you know that just this past Thanksgiving, 40-some-odd years later, my brother and I still fought over who got to pull down the string ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. What a generous giveaway Jess! It is stunning, as always! One of my favorite Christmas traditions is to put up the Christmas tree the weekend following Thanksgiving so we have the full amount of time to fully enjoy the twinkling of lights! :)

  50. Favorite holiday tradition is probably making Christmas cookies with my girls. When they were really little, their grandmother would make them matching little aprons and we would let them go to town with icing and sprinkles on the cookies. They were always a mess but they loved it. As they have gotten older, the aprons are no longer cool and they aren't covered in icing, but they still make cookies with me every year. :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. One of the things that I love about my family is that the kids love to dance! (and I love to dance!) There is hardly a holiday passes (any holiday) when the kids don't drag out the cd player and start up a dance party. Finally, I'm not the only one in the family who likes to rock out.

  57. We started a new tradition last year with my little one. We go shopping and he gets to pick out his own wrapping paper for Santa and Santa wraps all his gifts from Santa in his hand picked special paper. He loves it! He walked through the store showing everyone the Spongebob Christmas paper he chose and telling them all about how special it was becuase it was JUST FOR SANTAs gifts! Christmas morning he got up and shrieked SANTA USED MY PAPER! He has already asked me when we are going to pick out Santas paper this year.

  65. Congratulations on 1000 sales!

    I love your work.

    My family always had to hunt for the Christmas eve pj's that one of Santa's elves would hide for us while we were at church. The jammies always matched, even my Dad's! We still follow the same tradition with my 3 daughters. Even though the youngest is 18, they would be so disappointed if we didn't do it. Before we head off to bed we always put cookies, hot cocoa and carrots out for Santa and the reindeer.

  70. And a wonderful Christmas tradition in my family is that we all make time to have dinner at home together. My mum gets to have a day off (from doing housework), and sis makes her wonderful shepherd's pie. There aren't very many days in the year that we get together for a meal as a whole family.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Every year in the first week of the school holidays leading up to christmas, we invite family and close friends for a day of making gingerbread. I actually make the dough and have it all ready and then all the kids roll, cut and decorate their own shapes. Each year I buy some new cookie cutters to add to the fun. This year I got ninjabread men and gingerdead men. Our second tradition is we each buy a new decoration for the tree, so each piece is special and everyone knows who chose it. Michelle

  84. My oldest son, when he was 3 and before I had any other children, had a small blue bird beanie baby that he wanted to place on the tree. We put it near the top instead of a star well because we just didn't have a star yet. Every year when we open the storage box of ornaments I look for that one to place on the tree first, right at the top where it has been for the past 10 years. I love telling my younger children how we put that up there instead of a star and also it reminds me of a time when we were a young couple starting a family and starting our own holiday traditions.

    My husband and I love to pick a fresh Christmas tree just days before Christmas day. We always go on a snowy night.
    Everything is pretty with those big flakes slowly falling.
    There's a pleasant hush on those nights.
    We grab a hot chocolate and walk around the area touching trees, enjoying the incredible scent in the air.
    I love that night!!!! xoxo

  88. I only follow this lovely blog, not a twitter or facebook girl! Every Christmas, I buy one family ornament for our tree and my little girl is the only one who gets to decorate the tree with me!

    A holiday tradition - a long walk on Christmas eve, all of us after a wonderful family filled dinner.

    ReplyDelete
  91. OK. My favorite Christmas tradition is our Christmas Eve supper. We wait for the first star and then eat things we never cook during a year, all healthy and only with fish, no meat is allowed. I love beetroot soup with mushroom ravioli. Also, our whole family makes a crowd and we sing carols. My Grandma was the best cook and tradition keeper. Since she is gone, no Christmas feel real for me.

  96. Ever since we were little, my little sis and I would be so overwhelmed with anxious excitement that our parents began to allow us to exchange our gifts to one another just a tad early--late in the night on Christmas Eve. We've taken this tradition QUITE seriously over the years, and now that we are adults, it has many times turned into a sister sleepover of the best kind. Even a few years back, when I was celebrating my first year as an old married woman, we stuck to our guns, and had one of our best celebrations yet--watching old family videos, sharing memories, and sipping a glass of holiday cheer. I hope we have at least another thirty years of this tradition in us! :)

  109. I have so many favorite Christmas traditions - I love Christmas - but the one that is the most fun is Free stocking stuff. This was actually started out of desperation and is now everyones favorite part. It may be hard to explain but I'll try. My sister's husband passed away at a young age. Broke with teenagers - she somehow came up with the idea of saving things throughout the year that you get for free and filling the stocking with them - you know - like makeup samples or free pens LOL. So we started saving. You probably don't realize the funny things people give away, how much you can save in one year, and when people hear about this - they save all their free stuff for you too. Sometimes you get really good things. We sit around on Christmas eve and go through these stockings one item at a time and we laugh so hard (which was good medicine the first year) and share the story on how we scored that free item. I don't think I laugh as hard any other time of the year. This year I actually have a glass blown ornament shaped like a chicken wing (I am from the Buffalo area) It is so ugly - I know it will be the hit of the evening LOL So the goal is to get the funniest and the most valuable but the real goal is just to laugh. :) Thanks for the giveaway Jess - I love his necklace. if I win this "free item" it is staying in my stocking LOL - oh I just realized that my posts come up as Jane - It's me Jane McGrath :)

  110. My childhood Christmas holiday tradition was that we put our tree up, after it was cut from our farm's woods,on Christmas Eve. Off we went to bed with a naked tree. My sister, brother & I plotted ways to see Santa while we waited -awake-all night in our rooms with much anticipation.Having rooms on the 2nd floor allowed to watch out the window for the sleigh to land on the roof and by morning If we had slept at all we would awake before my dad came in from the morning milking and venture downstairs to find that magically our tree had been decorated beautifully.Twinkly and sparkly with lights and such. The cookies were eaten and a thank you note scrawled on a napkin. It was so magical, that thinking about it fills me with wonder even now.
