My family and I make gingerbread men, decorate the tree with the fire going, eat coffee cake and sausage for breakfast on Christmas morning, and then we have an oyster roast for lunch!

We have corn chowder for dinner on Christmas Eve, and exchange one present (pajamas!) each. The next morning, the youngest family member present gets to wake everyone up with a trumpet, followed by mimosas for the adults. For NYE, we decorate the Christmas tree with my boyfriend’s family, exchange gifts, and have vodka with pickles!

We always have a Mexican food dinner with my entire extended family on Christmas Eve. My Dad always made us drink a HUGE glass of orange juice (Sunny D to be exact) before we could go and see what Santa brought.

On Christmas Eve we would always drive to this fancy neighborhood that had amazing lights and we would listen to carols and drink hot cider. There was one house that looked just like my Barbie mansion, so that was always my favorite part!
