Christmas Traditions

It seems that along with the usual traditions of Christmas, such as opening presents Christmas morning, many of us have unique traditions as well. In my family it has become a tradition to watch the movie Oscar when we have Christmas with my mom.

(This picture has nothing to do with the rest of this post. I just wanted to show off my snowman cheese ball.)

I barely remember the first time we watched it on Christmas. I know it's been more than 12 years because I hadn't started dating my husband yet the first time we watched it. We laughed so hard that we had to watch it again the next year. And somehow it has become something we strive to do every year.

I think maybe one of the things that makes it such a great tradition is that no one planned for it to become a tradition. It was just something that we enjoyed so much that we did it again. Then we found that we enjoyed it just as much the second time so we did it again. Before we knew it, it was just what we do.

So what are some unconventional traditions your family has?

Now if you have never watched the movie Oscar, get over to Netflix and add it to your queue.
