There is so much hateful commentary on Topix, let's do something positive. What is your favorite Christmas tradition in your family? Mine is putting up the Christmas tree while watching "White Christmas". I still get teary eyed at that movie.

My husband and I get up early on Christmas Day morning and light a candle for blessings for family and friends. Then we get busy and make homemade noodles to make chicken and noodles for the whole family. After a big lunch we watch our children and granchilden open gifts. We have done this every Christmas for 36 years.

The exact time and order varies from year to year, but there's always some key things that happen in our house.
We read from scripture about Christ's birth.
We take turns opening presents.
And we always watch "A Christmas Story" during the marathon every year om TBS.

Carolyn...are you from the midwest? We make noodles too (we call them nana noodles, because we learned this trasition from our Nana). I never heard of anyone else doing this unless they were from the midwest. we are from Indiana.

My Grandmother taught me how to make the noodles the same way her mother taught her. All the noodles were and are made and cut by hand. She said it was from love that made them so good. I am from Iowa.
Merry Christmas and God Bless.

I knew it! Same noodles and process...all passed down from generation to generation.

Just got back from Indiana and we also do the homemade chicken and noodles that Grandmother made. Also had my breaded tenderloin and the best cottage cheese anywhere. Our Christmas tradition is candy making and caramel corn. Both Grandmother's tradition! With 13 grands, soon to be 15, we do Christmas stockings. Go Hoosiers! PS. Did I forget to mention Hoosier Ham Salad and a congeald salad!

Family gets together, decorates the tree with beads and ornaments, attends Christmas Eve services at Church, head home while watching for Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer's glow in the sky, kids head for bed, Mom and Dad set out cookies and milk for Santa and carrots and celery for reindeer. Next morning children up at the crack of dawn… Yawn! Short night for Mom and Dad.
