  1. Jenny Leonard says:

    We have Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, because then we can have a special breakfast on Christmas Day, the children can eat all of their sweets and chocolates, and I don’t spend half the day in the kitchen!!

  2. Jane Willis says:

    One year I made chestnut stuffing balls that collapsed. One of the then children said they looked like reindeer poo. And since then they insist on reindeer poo wtih Christmas dinner – even they are now adults

  3. It sounds a bit sad but we like spotting the Coca-Cola red truck advert as it seems to mark the start of Christmas

  4. Michelle Fullerton says:

    one of my christmas traditions is new festive pyjamas & socks for me & the children on christmas eve :)

  5. carole waldron says:

    We all open our present together at 12 noon.

  6. nothing beats turkey at Christmas

  7. Sarah Robertson says:

    One of our traditions are the Xmas games. Now that my sister and I don’t live at home, we don’t get to play games as a family very often, so Xmas is a great time for us to do so. (Now we can add alcohol to the mix as well!) :)

  8. anne lewis says:

    opening presents at nans /grandads after dinner

  9. Anne Mancini-Smith says:

    Chocolate digestives with the first cup of tea on Christmas day morning

  10. Best Christmas tradition is a glass of mulled wine after midnight mass – warms you up and makes sure you get right off to sleep

  11. We used to have lots of traditions when I was younger, but now my Mum is no longer with us we are making an effort to try and keep them going and add some of our own.
    We always have Bucks Fizz on christmas morning, and its against the rules to clear up the wrapping paper as you go, you must make as big a mess a possible!

  12. Nikki Hayes says:

    One of our Christmas traditions is having Bucks Fizz (with sparkling wine rather than champagne as we aren’t made of money, lol) whilst we are opening our presents on Christmas morning. I hasten to add its just me and my husband, no children ;o)

  13. marie yeardley says:

    glass of port after breakfast, needed for the day ahead!!

  14. Oh Helen, this would come in really handy.

  15. Forgot the tradition bit! Always have the Christmas albums on shuffle as I get the vegetables prepared on Xmas day. Humiliating the teens with my singing is a real Xmas tradition here!

  16. Kim Drillingcourt says:

    bucks fizz with breakfast just to get the day started

  17. My mum still does a Christmas stocking for me and my sister – even though we are 33 and 34 years old!

    My sister and I still get a Christmas stocking – aka my dad’s old rugby socks, with a satsuma in the end. We’re now 39 & 41 but have had the same each Christmas since we were very young. My mum even sent this with my hubbie to be when we were away to get married in Jamaica 10 years ago!

  20. We have trifle on Christmas day and Christmas pudding on Boxing day.

  21. katarina lloyd says:

    Our Christmas Tradition is that we go to my uncle’s for Christmas Lunch – we each make a dish to take (starters/dessert etc) to help him and then we have to find the craziest game possible to play after dinner!

  22. Janice Beal says:

    I always do Christmas stockings for my boys – even though they are 31 and 27 – they insist Christmas wouldn’t be the same without them!

  23. Beth Scott says:

    New pyjamas for everyone is one of our traditions, the other is my mother’s Christmas cookies. She makes several batches and posts a box to me and my siblings where ever we are in the world. As both my brothers are in the armed forces she’s sent boxes to lots of different places but it’s not Christmas to us until that box shows up in the post

  24. jennifer Harris says:

  29. Caroline Hunter says:

    We all have new pyjamas on Christmas Eve and snuggle down watching tv until it’s time to go to bed.

  30. My favourite tradition is having breakfast of Cadbury’s chocolate fingers whilst opening our presents. We do presents one at a time, so we can see what each other has got, and the children usually stop for a bit to play with things as they open them – this means presents usually last a few days in our house!

  31. Christine Sunter says:

    We always do a 1000 piece jigsaw at Christmas! Its on a board and anyone can dip in and do a bit at any time!

  32. sue cotton says:

    When I make the Christmas cake, I soak the fruit in brandy fir three days and then everyone has a stir and makes a wish!

  33. Pat Stubbs says:

    Walk after christmas lunch and BEFORE presents

  34. Boxing Day is the ‘big day’ for us – all the family descend on my mum’s house & my mum and I feed them silly. Not very original but it’s set in stone – noone would dare miss it!


    We buy each other ‘joke’ presents costing no more than a pound. Last year I got some toilet rolls! We do have other presents of course.

  36. we make our own Christmas Crackers with personlised gifts

  37. Our tradition that we started about 7 years ago when out daughter was very small is to go to TGI fridays for christmas eve dinner, done that every year since so a bit of a tradition in our family now.

  46. opening prezzies after dinner

  47. Mark Fridlington says:

  53. playing cards

  54. Heather Haigh says:

    We all open gifts together just before a big Christmas lunch.

  55. Maya Russell says:

    We always decorate the tree all together, but since I’m so allergic to sharp pine needles, it’s tradition that I’ll put the decorations on hooks and pass them on for hanging.

  56. Susan Crosswaite says:

    We always open one present each late on Christmas Eve – this started when my son no longer believed in Father Christmas and couldn’t wait to open his gifts so he was allowed to open just one to keep him quiet!

  57. Home made stuffing !!

  58. Rainie Bish says:

    “Santa” leaves random lucky dip type presents on my parents Christmas tree. Everybody gets to pick one each late on Christmas afternoon. The gifts can vary from the useful to edible to very strange but that’s what makes it so much fun. It has grown over the years and now various cousins with their families and several friends all seem to make sure they are there for “Tree Present Time”. It’s my favourite time of the whole year

  59. Elizabeth Kidger says:

    An indian takeaway on christmas eve with the dining room adorned with a mixture of indian and christmas decorations. Lots of scented candles and bright colours. This has been going on since our local Indian started doing deliveries about 15 years ago and I call them the wise men from the east.

  78. Miss Tracy Hanson says:

    We open our presents before dinner except for sister/brother-in-law/niece/nephew/great-niece’s and then we open theirs afterwards. Being patient stems from when there was 13 of us for Christmas dinner (years ago) and we had to wait until after dinner for the rest of the presents. :) :D

  83. Julie Hogg says:

    Christmas Eve.. we always play family games and go out for a meal

  84. We drink home made mulled wine and east nibbles whilst decorating the tree. We don’t have a co-ordinated tree – everything on it has a meaning, everything from a ball from our honeymoon in Antigua, a ball from the first time I saw my favourite rock band to a disgustingly scruffy small stuffed tree that has puppy teethmarks in it from my old dog and a tiny stocking with Eeyore on that I cross stitched when I was ill. We talk about the memories and add something new each year – this year it’s a new bauble with a Lhasa Apso on it for our new puppy.

All of our family, and any single friends who aren’t with their families for Christmas know that they’re welcome here on Christmas Day and can either drop in for a short time or stay all day.

M and I are discovering our own Christmas traditions at the moment, and it looks like our first is that we turn one evening in early December over to Christmas, the tree and decorations go up, cards are written, presents wrapped.
