Holiday traditions?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what all you guys do for your holidays (Christmas, Hanukkah, etc.).

 

I go cross country to visit my family.

Also, I like to drive with my mom at night through the suburbs and look at all the people's outrageous Christmas decorations (lights are fun!!). I kind of feel like a stalker for driving past strangers' houses at 5mph and shining my headlights into their windows, but whatever.

My husband and I drive down to Illinois with my immediate family (mom and two sisters) to my grandma's house where we celebrate the 24th with my mom's family. It's such a cozy night: dinner, present opening and dessert. It's my favorite holiday to celebrate with my family.

 

On the 25th, my husband and I go to his family's house to open presents.

 

Then my birthday is on the 27th and my husband's birthday is on the 31st. The celebrations continue on all the way through January 1st every year! I love the whole season. :wub:

I generally go to New Zealand for Christmas and my family spend Christmas Day on our favourite beach. However, I don't actually have any relatives here, although most of my friends live here. :D

its not really a tradition, but it may become one this year.

 

We're inviting my Great Aunt over for a week (or two) and she'll have Christmas with us :3

It's so nice to have her, since she lives alone and what not. This'll be her first Chirstmas (in a long time) that she can be with family :3

We invite my grandma down to open gifts in the morning. Then eat breakfast and then deliver gifts to my neices/nephews. It used to be them come over here but our main room we hang in is sorta packed full with only a few adults in the room.

My family doesn't do much for Christmas anymore. We go to my stepaunt's house for dinner and my mom brings the dessert. After we eat I go downstairs and play video games with the kids while the adults sit upstairs and talk about boring adult things. I don't get to open any presents because my parents claim I'm "too old" for presents and have been since I turned 18, but I get to watch all the kids open theirs at least.

We invite my cousins over for Christmas Eve, and we drive to City Centre just to see the Christmas trees and the shops. Then, we sleep and the next day we open our presents in the morning and play some games. That night, we call some more friends over and have a Christmas Dinner.

Oh... And I also find a random toy in my room and use it as the tree topper. Our other angels always fall... This year, I placed my Star Catcher MLP with fabric wings on it. Not sure if it will stay since most of the time its one of my dolls. Lol.

Well, since I live away from home, I usually travel a few days before Christmas. It's painful - travelling in Australia during summer with no air-conditioning in the car is the worst.

 

Tomorrow (23rd December) my boyfriend and I are celebrating our own Christmas together. We usually go out to a nice restaurant for lunch and then we return home to exchange presents. After this, we say our goodbyes and we travel to our respective homes. We usually have to cart a million presents home for our parents - we spoil them!

 

When I was younger, Christmas Eve was spent babysitting my younger cousins whilst their parents were shopping for extra presents. I used to LOVE this! But since they have gotten older, there's no need to babysit. I now spend the time mucking around the house with my cat and budgie, and helping Mum with all the shopping and making desserts for the next day.

 

Mum always wakes Dad and I up horrendously early on Christmas Day. Like, 6am. I usually get out straight away, or she will dive bomb into my bed, and last time she did that, my bed collapsed and Dad had to put it back together. We then open out presents and get ready to visit my Mum's side of the family for the day.

 

On the 26th (Boxing Day in Australia) we spend the day with my Dad's family. We have a massive lunch at my Aunts house and we all catch up.

 

I no longer get presents from extended family - except my Aunt Judy, who always gives me soap. Every. Year. :P

 

Yes, my Christmas is usually crazy hectic.

      I dont really know where to post this, but heres my guess!
      Anyways, Christmas is coming up, and so,are new tamas
      I really want a V3, Gudetama and mostly a tamagotchi meets!
      This is when I need your help!
      Dad says that if I get all 3, then there wont be much more than that. I dont really care, but then fro yo will be shoving all her stuff in my face, while I have 3 plastic eggs :/
      So what should I do? I are not crazy over a gudetama, but still want one!
      And then, the meets is a bit expensive (around £50-70 on eBay) and then again, most of them are from japan.
      Help needed!

      Merry Christmas!
      I'm making this topic a little early. If you don't know the rules, check the group hatch discussion. The most important part, have some Christmas time fun!

      Merry Christmas!!!
      I was a little surprised to find no Christmas theme group hatch going on.
      I would like to start a group hatch this Friday the 22nd. Please let me know if you want to join!
      The more the merrier!
       
      Group Hatch Rules
      1. Anyone can join with any Tamagotchi they have
      2. The hatch is for one generation only. (your welcome to do more, but I'm only doing 1 generation.)
      3. you can start from any generation, (no resetting your tama)
      4. The most important rule! Try doing Christmas theme things with your Tama! Be creative with this one! Christmas themes can be virtual (on the tama itself) or in real life (in the environment)!

      (And there was another post about this but it's locked.) What things did you get for Christmas? I got: Headphones, ACNL amiibo cards, a 20$ Steam card, art kits, Japanese chocolate bears, and a toy gun.
       
      What about you?
