When I get up I wake my parents up and then I open my stocking, then I open my presents. I get new P.J.s every year. I love Christmas. My mom puts up the lights every year. Me, Ryley and my dad decorate the tree. I sneak downstairs and see the presents every year,

My Christmas Traditions

We hang the stockings by the fire with care. I can only open my stocking before my mom and dad wakeup. We set up our Christmas tree in the living room. I have to wait until seven o’clock until I can wake up my mom and dad and then we can go open our presents. I go to my grandma’s house every year for Christmas. Santa always delivers presents at my grandma’s house that are mine. We open one present after dinner. My whole family gets to pick a present to open.

My Christmas Traditions are to get a job to put the branches on the tree. We also make cookies and we in real life have one of the biggest stockings on the Island, andy I’m not joking.

In the morning my family wakes up and have our breakfast. We have toast or cereal.

For Christmas,

When I get up I open my stocking and when my parents get up we open our presents. After we’re done breakfast we go to my grandparents’ house and open presents there! After we’re done opening presents there, we play until it’s time for lunch. Then we go out for lunch and then we play until dinner and we have a ham or turkey dinner at my grandparents’ house.

Next year, I want to put boots at the end of my bed so they get filled too. I want to open a present on Christmas Eve.

I also always get my picture taken with Santa.

I hope my elf on the shelf comes back.

I can open one present on Christmas Eve morning. On Christmas Day I have a choice whether I can leave my P.J.s on or not. On Christmas Day I only get to open the presents (when) mom and dad wake up and we (eat) breakfast.

When we drive to my grandma’s house my cousins and my brother and I play soccer outside. Sometimes we play find the cell phone. We always stay up until midnight.

On Christmas Eve me and my mom and my brother make cookies for Santa. Me and my brother wake up really early in the morning and we get to open one present. We get to open the other ones when our parents are awake. Then we eat breakfast. Then my mom’s best friend comes over with her family and then we eat turkey for dinner with them. After I play with her daughter on our swings. Then I open the present she gets me and she opens the gift I get her. Then we all eat pumpkin pie.

My Christmas traditions are on Christmas morning we eat bacon, eggs and cinnamon buns! On Boxing day my whole family goes to Port Alberni to see my Oma! We also watch holiday fire while we open gifts.

My mom always bakes Breton brittle around the Christmas season! On Christmas Eve, me, my grandma and my brother go for a light walk and when we’re out Santa brings us new P.J.s! After we get home we do Santa Tracker on our big TV!

On Christmas morning, my cousins, my uncle, my aunt and my grandparents come. A tradition I’d like to have it to put up at least one Christmas decoration starting Dec. 1.

My Christmas traditions are we have an elf on the shelf, He is in a new place everyday and is doing something funny. We have too find him everyday. His name is Jack Frost.

We also go to Butchart Gardens and do the 12 days of Christmas scavenger hunt with our cousin. We also go to our grandma’s house or our nana’s house for turkey dinner.

I would like to open one present on Christmas Eve as a new tradition.

My Christmas Tradition

The family all help with the decorating. We put up a  tree with decorations and a snowflake garland.

On Christmas Eve we go to my oma and opa’s place, my mom’s mom and dad, for a big feast. We open presents after dinner, all of them.

We have a really good dinner with gravy. We have cake for dessert. Then we watch a movie and eat cookies and come and get some fruit, veggies, mean and cheese if we want. Then we come home and go straight to bed.

In the morning we can’t even go downstairs without mom. But we don’t have to wait for mom to whip up some food, we can just eat cereal. But dinner is fancy surprisingly. I have about  hmmm … four Christmases
