Maybe we need to take just a second to discuss something very important…


This time of the year is full of family, friends, love, pretty lights, trees, presents, engagements, baby’s firsts, and lots of Facebook posts. Are you ready?


My holiday traditions are as follows:

Christmas Eve, I spend with my husband’s side of the family. We go to his grandpa’s house and eat. All of his aunts and uncles are there and we all play Dirty Santa.

Then we go stay the night at my grandparents’ house that night because Santa knows to find us there. We wake up in the morning and eat breakfast while my aunt goes to pick up my grandma from the nursing home. My parents, two of my mom’s sisters, my siblings, my grandparents, my husband and I open our gifts from Santa and then start making snacks and dips for when the rest of the family arrives that afternoon.

Then, we eat said snacks and dips, open presents, pass out stockings, play a crazy game that my uncle comes up with, pray, and hang out with the whole family.

I love Christmas and the holiday season!

I asked a few of the other Fluffeez™ team members if they had any Christmas traditions that they really like or are weird and I got a couple of responses:

“I sit down with my grandparents and a giant tin of popcorn and we watch Home Alone 2. I eat the cheese, my grandpa eats the caramel, and my grandma eats the butter.” – Brandon, our web developer

“I like opening one present on Christmas Eve.. and before I lived in an apartment, we would burn the Christmas tree the day after Christmas. That was fun.” – Rachel, our senior graphic designer


Do you have any unique plans or holiday traditions that you would like to share?? Please let me know in the comments!
