The Christmas holidays are a time when everyone has their traditions, ideas about what is most fun, relaxing and enjoyable.
From decorating the Christmas tree to leaving cookies for Santa, Christmas traditions offer great ways to celebrate the holiday season. To kick off the season we asked our Facebook followers to share their favourite Christmas traditions with us. Please feel free to share your festive tradition with us in the comment box below.
My favourite christmas tradition is when my mum makes the Christmas pudding we all stir it and made a wish. Now I live away from home my mum phones us when she makes the pudding. My daughter, husband and I each make our wishes down the phone as mum stirs the pudding mixture!

My favorite Christmas traditions are cooking and baking with my mom and opening gifts at midnight from Christmas Eve to Christmas. Spending the time cooking and baking with my mom is a lovely bonding experience. We listen to holiday songs on the radio and be jolly. The opening of gifts at midnight is something we've been doing my entire life. It's a tradition from back home in Brazil so I want to continue staying close to my roots.
My favourite Christmas tradition is a relatively new one, it's taking my one and only niece to see the reindeers! This is her third Christmas and she's mega excited.
It has to be getting up really early with the children to see if santa has been and watching them tear open their presents before making them scrambled egg and smoked salmon for breakfast smile emoticon it's all about the children being happy and making memories for me.
My favourite tradition is decorating table for Christmas dinner.
Visiting my grandparents and meeting relatives. Christmas spirit.

Getting to spend 2 whole days with my twin and the rest my family.
Opening pressies first thing, too exciting to wait.
This year we started a new tradition ... Placing the in memorium ornament on the tree where everyone can see it because that's where my mom would want to be since it is our first Xmas without her.
I am a child at heart, Christmas decorations, lights, carols, scents, Cooking and baking, family gathering and exchanging gifts, watching favorite Christmas shows, can't forget the snow, apple cider, cinnamon and eggnog, priceless moments and looks on everyone faces. Jesus Christ is the reason for the season.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2016.
