It is that time of year where everyone has their own family traditions. Family traditions are what makes the holidays so special. My family has a Christmas party every Christmas Eve. My mom and I spend all day preparing food and then at 6 pm my family shows up. We eat together and then sit around the Christmas tree to open up gifts. We then turn on the radio and dispatch tells all of the kids that the local airport saw Santa's sleigh and 8 tiny reindeer. They tell all the kids to rush home and crawl into bed before Santa arrives. It is so cute seeing my niece and nephews grab their coats and boots and rush out the door to make it home in time. Then on Christmas day, we make cinnamon buns and open presents. After that, we go to my stepsister's house in pajamas and hang out for a few hours. It is so fun to have a set schedule every year and to be able to see all of my family. That is the best part of the holidays!
