Aloha Friday...Christmas traditions

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and head on over to Island Life to post your link. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

What is your favorite Christmas tradition?

One of my favorite traditions that my husband and I started many years ago is an ornament for the Christmas tree.  Every year we find one ornament that representst that year and we buy it for our tree.  This makes it a lot of fun when decorating the tree because it reminds us of major things in our lives.  We now let the girls choose one too so they can start the tradition and our Christmas tree tells a story.

I would love to hear fun traditions that you have at Christmas...please post your comment. :)


  1. We really do not have any traditions except buy each of our children an ornament of their own every Christmas.

    Happy Friday.

  2. Our tradition is to put the Christmas tree together and have a dinner as a family.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Each one of my children have their own Christmas box. Each year they get to put their own ornaments on the tree. I usually make them a new ornament each year.

  4. How funny! My husband and I have the SAME tradition as you do! We started doing it the year that we got engaged. I think that it was because I loved the ornament that I found that year so I made it a tradition. We also always buy pewter ornaments with our childrens names engraved on them for each year.

  5. no real traditions.. YET..
    will soon change!
