George Tamoes or Tamaes???: My Christmas tradition is to go to celebrate at our family members house. In my family, after we get there we get to play for a couple hours. When Santa comes we go downstairs, Santa gives us our presents and then we open them. Finally, we go to sleep. I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Olivia Pottinger: We decorate a tree, have a Christmas party and bake cookies for Christmas.

Maddie Benn: We put up a Christmas tree, decorate the tree with lights and an angel and then Santa brings presents.

Gavin Gouck: I decorate a Christmas tree and give people presents for the holiday. On Christmas I go to my friend Kalen’s house and eat over.

Ian Martin: Christmas is the best time of the year! My sister and I love decorating Christmas cookies. It is so much fun! We especially love cutting out the cookies shapes with cookie cutters. That is really fun too. First, my mom makes the dough. We sometimes help. Then we use cookie cutters to cut out the cookie dough. Next, the fun part, decorating the cookies! I usually put too many decorations on mine. Then our mom bakes the cookies. Finally, we eat them. They are delicious. I hope your Christmas tradition is as fun as mine.

Charlie Gibbons: My favorite Christmas tradition is the night before Christmas I read ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. I also decorate the tree. We open our presents.

Julianna LAST??: My favorite Christmas tradition is when we decorate the tree. We say goodbye to our Elf and we bake the cookies and it smells yummy! Mmm! It’s done and we leave cookies for Santa. I go to a church and then me and my daddy go to houses and sing. We get back and we eat cookies and we drink hot chocolate. Then at home we sing songs and put the star on the tree. Then we write our list and we wait for Christmas.

Christopher Violante: My favorite Christmas tradition is singing Christmas carols. After I open the presents, then we go to Grandma’s house and we eat cinnamon buns and cake. When I get home then I start singing Christmas carols. We knock on people doors and sing carols. The first door we sing Jingle Bells, then Rudolph and then Santa Claus is coming to Town. When we are done, we go home and pray. I hope you have a great Christmas.

Abigail Izzo: My favorite Christmas tradition is to decorate our Christmas tree! First, we run down the steps and watch my dad bring the Christmas tree to the dining room.
