❄ Hello Readers! ❄
I’m back today to tell you all about my favorite family holiday traditions! Now this first tradition I found out was very common from Day 8’s post about everyone’s Christmas Tree Reveals. My mom gets my brother and I a new ornament every year! I look forward to opening this present the most every year. My mom also writes the year on the bottom of each so I can always remember that year. Here are some of my favorites!
Another holiday tradition my family has, that i’m not so sure is common is what we eat for Christmas dinner. I’m pretty sure ham is the common Christmas feast? But we don’t do that. As Italians, pasta is basically our life. We eat homemade ravioli for dinner Every Christmas. My grandma, aunts and uncles all partake in the making of the ravioli a few weeks before Christmas. And, it’s not just cheese ravioli we eat, we have veal and spinach ravioli. Super strange, at least I think it is. For years I had no idea it was veal but I knew it was a ravioli flavor you don’t usually buy at the grocery store. Despite going most of my life not knowing what it was, it’s delicious.
Another of my family’s holiday traditions is that my dad’s whole side of the family gets together for a Christmas Eve party, and guys, don’t get too jealous but, Santa visits. I know, I know, it’s very exciting. We all hang out, eat a fantastic dinner with way too much food and get to get an early present from Santa all before going to bed on Christmas Eve. It’s great.
My family has so many more holiday traditions and I could go on and on about all of them, but I don’t want to bore ya’ll too much. Basically, we do the exact same thing every year for the holidays so it’s all tradition but i’m going to leave it there.
