Heather Bares said...

One of my favorite traditions is eating Popeye's fried chicken with my parents on Christmas Eve. Not sure how it started but it is what we do every year on Christmas Eve.

Beverly said...

I love how everyone on both sides of my family have started coming to my house on Christmas Eve for dinner so my husband and I don't have to choose between families. I love all the tradition that surrounds this time of year and the togetherness. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and I love the products.

Alesk said...

My favorite tradition is decorating the Christmas tree with my son. I buy new stuff every year to make it a little more interesting (he has such a good memory, it's hard to recycle decorations!). But we always have to have a Mommy Bird, Daddy Bird and His own Bird - that never changes!

Ashleigh said...

Every year we make cookies from recipes from my great grandmother.

jackie said...

How cool are the bird houses! I am plum crazy for plum crazy! Best part of Christmas is we celebrate on Christmas Eve and as kids we always waited for midnight to open up the stockings and gifts from relatives. Then bedtime and Christmas day we opened what Santa left.

FitnessGirlNBassMaster said...

I got married a little over a year ago...so the holidays aren't completely ironed our and we have to "share" traditions. So this year we get to do a family tradition from my side...we're spending Christmas in Las Vegas :) Christmas in Vegas is amazing! The decor is to die for & the stores stay open :) We'll still do my other favorite tradition, which is attend Christmas Eve service...but it will just be in Las Vegas this year :)

Queen Kat said...

all of my holiday memories are best when my dad is there. No matter what we are doing, if he's there it's awesome. My time is running short on having him around and I can't wait to spend another holiday with him.

Kelsey_N said...

My favorite tradition On Christmas morning (in the past!) was when my sister and I would wake up extra early (because of course ... how could a kid sleep IN on Christmas?!) and sneak into the living room - we would empty out our stockings (this was before my mom started wrapping the gifts in there) and look at everything, then try our best to fit it all back in the same way. Then (and this still applies if we are at mom & dad's for Christmas) we make the coffee because the rule is: Mom & Dad do NOT get out of bed until their coffee is ready! Good memories.

My husband and I, our tradition is to read the Christmas story on Christmas Day before we open our gifts.

Susan said...

My favorite tradition is the Gold and Silver gift tradition that we started with our children 30 years ago. Every year in addition to a few gifts they receive a Gold Gift (one wrapped in gold paper that is picked out especially for them from me (Mom). It is really never anything on their list..it is just something that makes me think of them or an heirloom type item. The Gold gift is ofter their favorite gift. Dad wraps up the newly minted silver coins from that year in Silver paper..they have proof sets even from the year they were born.

picnic said...

Sophia said...

Decorating our tree with my 2 sweet girls. Something we can share in and be merry!

Thanks for the great chance at the prize...

Bevie G said...

These little birdhouses are sooo adorable! the minute I saw them I wanted to make one too! How cute would they be if feathers were used to cover the roof? Cute cute cute! Thanks for all the inspiration! And the plum Crazy stocking! LOVE IT! Our family always went way overboard on the stocking stuffers, after all they are the most fun to seek out. We would wrap each item and spend an hour or more unwrapping each little surprise on Christmas morning!

Casey Lu said...

Wow that Purple bird house is amazing!! Hard to find purple scrappy stuff and it is my favorite color!

My favorite holiday tradition is the week before Christmas my hubby's entire family gets together and makes dozens and dozens of cookies starting with Candy Cane cookies, Cherry Winks, Sugar Cookies, and more. That way each mini family within our family gets dozens of cookies to enjoy! Also on Christmas Eve we open one gift from each other and it is usually new pajamas and a small toy or book. The kids love it and so do I!

CINDI said...

Christmas 2003 my daughter was 2(almost 3) and the gas on the oven got screwed up so the turkey for dinner wasn't cooked. Everyone was starving, so we had Dessert first so no one expired from the wait! LOL
And our favorite tradition was born.
The kids (and grow ups) all love having dessert first, my Dad says it's like "getting away with something!"
I hope i win!! I haven't had a stocking in a long time!!!

CINDI said...

I should have added I LOVE the Plum Crazy line too!
Purple is my favorite color!!!

Kim Rose said...

My absolute favorite tradition is setting up my Christmas tree. My Mother loved Christmas and each year she would set up a different themed tree. She taught each of my sister's and myself how to decorate a tree so it was perfect. I lost my Mom a year ago so trimming the tree is a bit heartwrenching for me now but I still love it.
The product give away is amazing. Thanks for the chance. You guys are awesome!!!

Love, Chloe said...

Years ago when my mother found out that she had cancer she wanted to make the holidays extra special for us (there 8 of us plus our significant others) so that we would have a lot of special memories of and with her. My mother was a Fashionista! She was always setting trends around where we lived. So she started a tradition of formal Christmas dinners with a 'fashion show' everyone would dress up to the Ts and do their 'thing' at the end of the night after all the kids have opened their presents the adults got to 'play' my mother even bought trophies and ribbons to hand out to the winners and runnerups. She made up all kinds of titles too. Most creative, most noticeable change, etc so that we wouldn't feel left out. It was always so fun searching for the 'perfect' dress the holidays. We still carry on that tradition with my nieces and nephews. We always have fun remembering those memories of my mom. And she also started us playing family bingo after all presnets were opened and everyone was too stuffed to do anything but were still too excited to sleep. Sorry for such a long post but itjust brought up all these memories. Thanks for letting me share. Melynda

Rhonda Kay said...

We began new traditions 3 years ago after my Mama died and I look forward to celebrating them again for a 4th year. My in-laws come stay with us for 2 1/2 weeks and we jump into the season with a few annual activities. We have lunch for just the girls (my mother-in-law, my daughter, a couple of her lifelong friends that feel like my own, my sister, and my sister's mother-in-law) at a cozy little tearoom. Our whole family sees a Christmas movie in the theater after having dinner out together one night (this is where my husband, son, dad, and father-in-law get to join us!). The guys catch a hockey game together and also go to Independence Bowl pep rally the night before the game. We go to Natchitoches to see the Christmas lights along the river. We have dinner on Christmas Eve with the entire family and kick it off with a special Christmas cocktail and a toast. We made the decision 3 years ago to stop exchanging gifts and make charitable donations instead. Last year we adopted a family who lost everything in an apartment fire. We have no commercial shopping stress and concentrate on enjoying our time with loved ones - our traditions also make for GREAT scrapbook pages!!! I really adore all your products, so thanks for sharing your creativity!

Katherine said...

Going to church on Christmas Eve. with my family.

Kristi Patteson said...

My favorite tradition is making a bed for baby Jesus. Each time I catch my kids doing something kind or Christ-like, I let them put a piece of straw into the manger. Then on Christmas morning, baby Jesus shows up sleeping on the nice pile of straw they've made.

Stacy said...

My favoite tradition is hiding the Christmas pickle in our Christmas tree for my 2 girls to find. My husband bought the pickle our first time out shopping for decorations. He thought it was a funny ornament and got it to make me mad about a pickle on the tree because shopping for ornaments was not fun for him. Now my girls love finding it in the tree and he says every year are'nt you glad I bought that pickle! LOL!

Tina N. said...

My favorite tradition as an adult is Christmas Eve when we get together with all of our extended family to exchange gifts and to look at all of the goodies we put in each other's stocking.

Jesus is the reason for the season!

tina nichol

Tanya said...

Wow, that stocking is brimming full of goodness! One of my fave traditions is setting up the tree, turning on christmas music, and relaxing with a cup of eggnog :)

Cheryl Sanders said...

There are 2 things I love about the holidays.
1. Decorating the tree, which started with my grandmother, who I swear had that tree marked in some way that she knew where every ornament went. Used to take us a month to get everything right. My own tree is comparison is a lot more easy going.
2. The giving whether to family, friends, toys for tots, whichever. I love seeing the smiles and hearing the joy by phone (our farthest gifts go to Germany.

Hinke said...

My favorite holiday tradition is making gingerbread houses. The whole family united around the table. Singing, creating and having fun. And when the houses are finished, we gather around the fireplace with hot chocolate and talk about the past year.

NickelNook said...

Wow...I just read through the list of everyone elses traditions and I'm all teary-eyed! So many wonderful traditions at this time of year! We keep many traditions in our home...the baking, shopping, gift giving & rceiving, the eating, and special times spent with family & friends. Through it all we focus on the fact that we are celebrating the birth of Christ! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win such a fantastic stocking full of goodies!

Gwen said...

My favorite tradition is cold cut sandwiches on homemade rolls on Christmas Eve, followed by watching "Miracle on 34th Street" together as a family.

Rebecca said...

Eating sugar cookies and listening to the Boston Pops while decorating the tree :)

AndiD said...

My fave tradition is that my sister & I go to my dad's house on the night before Christmas Eve and have our holiday with him that night. We have a crab leg and artichoke feast and spend the night to do our Christmas the next morning. My sister is 24 and still leaves a letter to Santa Clause out with cookies and milk, and now my 3 kids come and do it all with us too.

AndiD

Candace said...

oooooh, gorgeous little houses!!! My favorite holiday tradition is wrapping presents by the tree, drinking a cup of hot chocolate, while listening to Christmas music.

Buncobuddy said...

In the "olden days," Catholics were not supposed to eat meat on Christmas Eve. We still carry on that tradition and have a feast of FISH! We all love it. Happy Holidays!

thecolonelsdaughter said...

our favorite holiday tradition is one which started with my oldest son (12) years ago. when he finally realized who santa was... santa would leave a "real" small christmas tree on the door step for him - ring the bell - and fly off into the sky with all of his reindeer. as he started growing so did the size of the tree. he outgrew the "idea" of santa, although he still gets a "santa tree" - so, the tradition has continued with our 3 year old. the excitement in both of their eyes, the wonder of looking for santa and his reindeer and the excited "bye santa, thank you!" is a wonderful beginning to our christmas. "jesus is the reason for the season"

scrappygal said...

My favorite holiday tradition was running into my brother's room and jumping up and down on his bed to wake him up Christmas morning. Morning was not his favorite time,but this was the only time that I could get away with torturing him with song, dance and leaps on his bed. Good times ;0)
Now that I am a parent, I have children that do the same thing to me. Christmas Karma?

Cariena said...

the best X'mas tradition i have here in South Africa is to go to the beach the whole day on the 24th of December. then everyone cleans up nicley and we read the Nativity Story while the sun is setting and then just before it is dark, we do the gifts - little kids can't wait that long after a whole day in the sun, sea and sand!! i have blogged and scrapped all your wonderful layouts from when you were in SA, and LOVE the stamp you gave me - I use it all the time!

Avital said...

My favorite Haunkkah tradition is lighting up the candles and singing the carols and prayers with my parents and sisters.

Elaine A said...

These birdhouses are just so beautiful. What beautiful designs and colors they are. A tradition I miss is one we used to do when my son was about 3 years old and continued (believe it or not, until he was 12). He would leave a note that he wrote (I did it when he was little & I still have all the notes) along with a drawing he made, an empty glass and Santa's favorite cookies (really his Daddy's) on the table. He would then leave sugar cubes on the window sill in the kitchen for the reindeer. His note would direct Santa to open the fridge and help himself to milk and the cookies on the table. In the morning he would rush in and get all excited because the sugar cubes were gone and all the cookies except about 4 which Santa left for him. But what really excited him was the note that Santa left him. He would actually run to look for the note before even looking or opening his presents.
Now this part of the tradition we still do. In the morning I serve danishes, rolls and coffee or hot chocolate. We then take our things into the living room, light up the tree and start to open gifts. One gift at a time for each person, for example, I open a gift (ooh & aahh), then my son, then my husband and any other family members that were staying with us. Then we start the same sequence with the next gift. We found that this allowed each gift to be appreciated and not just opened, tossed on the side and a grab for another one in a mad rush. Thirty something years later, we still do the same thing.

~~Mia~~ said...

omgosh ~ okay first, amazing giveaway, second ~ adorable birdhouses and third ~ one of my fave christmas traditions is decorating the tree...sounds simple but i love it, we turn (crank up actually) the christmas music on for the first time when we decorate the tree and we dance and sing (or at least i do) and we just love the moment and the season! LOVE IT!

Holly in SC said...

We always deliver gifts to friends & neighbors on Christmas eve, and my kids are allowed to open one gift before bedtime ~ just like my parents let me when I was little. On Christmas day, we always go to my Mom's for the day :)

mustangkayla said...

Those birdhouses are just adorable! What a fabulous stocking! My favorite tradition is the family games Christmas Eve night! We have so much fun staying up late spending time together.

Nitasha said...

This is the best stocking I've ever seen-- Glitz-tastic. My favorite holiday tradition is baking cookies with my kiddos and by baking I mean buying pre-bought Pillsbury cookie dough--LOL!!! I'm no Martha, but our little cookie tradition is still fun, especially when we sit some out for Santa!

Charlene K. said...

My friends & I have a cookie recipe swap and enjoy the goodies and each other's company & we play games. We also come home with a goodie bag of cookies and a hand full of great new recipes.

carol said...

My husband & I started a tradition our 1st Christmas together. We get new PJ's to open Christmas Eve. When the kids were little we would look at lights with Christmas music playing in the car & open PJ's when we got home. They couldn't wait to get into them, as then Santa would soon be there. Now we have a race to see who can put their PJ's on the quickest. We just celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary.

Stacia said...

Besides getting time to scrapbook???? (Yes at least between Christmas & New Years I do get time! :D)

I'd have to say baking cookies & making chocolate suckers with my kids. The suckers are the 1 item we let them make for their gift to their friends, with 7kids you have to find something cost effective, especially when they want to give something to their entire class at school, at church, & 1/2 the neighborhood!

Vicki G said...

I love traveling to Texas to spend the holidays with my family. The kids can't wait for the trip every year. The line if plum fab!

Scrap2day said...

My favorite tradition is still the family dinner. I love having all of my girls home and laughing at the table..
Nothing beats your family and laughter during the Holidays!

Kristie said...

My favorite holiday tradition is my family Christmas get together. This year we will be hosting 32 people for our party. One of my favorite traditions at that party is our Christmas stockings, everyone there has a stocking with their name on it. When the time comes, my husband always plays Santa and hands out the stockings, oldest (Mom now 85) to youngest (great nephew Oliver now 6 months old) It is so much fun, you never know what you will be getting in that stocking.

Iris Uy said...

OMG those bird houses are so pretty! We just started a holiday tradition a few years ago where my daughter get to pick a treat for the 12 days of Christmas every morning. She loves that. I look forward to doing the same with my baby once she is old enough to appreciate it.

beautiful package!

Deborah said...

Our favorite holiday tradition is to spend Christmas at home with family and then travel the day after Christmas by car to a place where kids can see Capitol buildings and take pictures of them in front of it. Last year we were able to take pictures of them in front of 2 Capitols.

Amanda Ann said...

Mine is each member of the family choosing a new ornament for the tree. It is fun to see what we have chosen through the years.

Breezy Studios said...

LOVE THIS GIVEAWAY!!!! My favorite color is purple and these are too cute for words!!!! My favorite tradition is that my mom would read a Christmas book to our family the whole month of December and we would finish the book on Christmas Eve. I have passed it on to my family and my mom still does this tradition with her beautiful grand babies!!!

Teresa Wilkins said...

My favorite tradition is only a few years old. When my first grandchild was born, I wanted to have a special way to celebrate with just the two of us. I have a big red drawstring Santa bag with his name on it. I collect fun things all year long for the bag. Christmas morning, after all the other presents are opened and the wrapping paper is being picked up, he and I sneak away to open the "Nanny" bag. Now I have two grandsons and each has a "Nanny" bag. I love the "we" time that is spent with my grandsons. Oh, they are 6 and 2 years old!

Sarah's Nonsense said...

Eating tamales on Christmas Eve!

Cathy said...

We have tons of traditions....but one that I'm very much looking forward to is TIME OFF WORK. My kids & I all work at/go to the same school so when they're off, then so am I - thus begins 2 great weeks of Jammie-days, lazy starts, big pots of coffee (for me) and video game tournaments (also for me LOL). Looking at that stocking of goodies (and drooling) reminds me that it's been ages since I've done a layout and I'm itchy to get some time to scrap this Christmas.

Pick me ;)

Terena said...

Ok, those birdhouses are WAY TOO CUTE!!!! Love it, what a great idea!

Jenn said...

those little houses are too cute, love the purple!

my favorite tradition is picking out the tree, going and finding the right one every year. It's so fun to do with my baby girls now too!

warm cup of java said...

Our favourite Christmas tradition is playing a dice game on Christmas eve with the family. Not only does it gather the family together it keeps them busy and preoccuppied to be so wond up about a joly man coming!
Merry Glitz-mas girls!

dmb321 said...

Every Thanksgiving I plant Amerilys and Papper white bulbs in short vintage pottery. By Christmas they are starting to bloom and they smell wonderful.

Jody Waters said...

My entire family draws names and keeps it secret for a stocking exchange. Each stocking must be handmade and stuffed with no more than $15 worth of stuff. It is so much fun every year to see what everyone has made... esp. the guys!

connie said...

I love making gingerbread houses with the grandchildren and this year having them paint plates for Santa's cookies.

cassaundra99 said...

My favorite holiday tradition is midnight mass. I love the intamacy and warmth of church on Christmas.

Yvonne said...

I think my favorite Holiday tradition is decoration the tree and then having milk and cookies with my daughter while enjoying the bubble lights and all of our hard work:)
Love the plum crazy line!
Hope all the Glitz Girls and their families have some very happy holiday times!

Sheryl - Skylar & Maci's Noni :} said...

Wow! What a gorgeous & generous stocking! Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity to win! The main tradition that I look forward to is reading the story of Jesus from the bible and listening to special songs picked to reiterate why we have Christmas. I am starting a new tradition this year with my granddaughters who are 3 and 1 and building gingerbread houses! I'm so looking forward to it and spending time with them! Again thank you, and I pray you all have a very blessed Christmas!

Maureen said...

I love decorating the christmas and reliving the memories of each ornament !!

Anonymous said...

We look forward to our mother trimming the tree. On Christmas morning we exchange one gift before we go over to our cousin for Christmas breakfast with the entire family. We eat, exchange gifts and fellowship. Afterwards we come home and finish unwrapping gifts and visit friends

Jennifer Haltom said...

Spending the Christmas holidays with family & friends...just enjoying the season.

Keri said...

We used to have to all wait on the stairs until our parents got up and went down to finish up, then they would take a picture of us all sitting on the stairs. I love seeing those pictures now.

LeslieJo said...

My husband and I celebrate each Christmas together, that is the best tradition! But, we are expecting our first child in a few months and I cannot wait to start new traditions next year!

Audrey Bianco said...

Going to candlelight service at church is one of my favorite traditions!

Anonymous said...

Going to church on Christmas Eve and hearing the choir sing. There is something about hearing Christmas carols at church on the eve of Jesus's birth that put my life in perspective during the holidays!

Traci said...

One of my favorite traditions, and one I have brought from my childhood is pizza on Christmas Eve. We used to hit Pizza Hut on Christmas Eve before Christmas Eve church service but here where I live in Texas none of the restauraunts are open so make homemade pizza for the family! It's a fun tradition that we all look forward to every year. I love all the Glitz yummies! How cool it it were under my tree at Christmas!

Michelle P said...

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is going Christmas Caroling on the New Orleans Street Cars. I haven't done this since Hurricane Katrina, but our church group used to go every year and it was soooo much fun!! Really puts you in the Christmas Spirit!

heatherbell said...

No "fancy theme" tree in our house. I love putting up our tree filled with homemade ornaments!

One of my favorite traditions is having a firework contest with the neighbors each year. We have a big show in the neighborhood each year.

Karen said...

One of my favorite traditions is decorating the tree with my youngest son, who is now 15, but still likes to help out Mom with the tree! We also like to bake cookies together....his favorite are the gingerbread men!

Scrappin' Affair said...

My favorite holiday tradition starts with decorating the tree! It is always alot of fun to remember each ornament and the time in our lives that made that one special. Even now, with my grandma gone for many years, I can see the tree that she used to put up every year and the memories of all the ornaments that she had on her tree that are now on mine. My children love to hear the stories year after year. Happy Holidays everyone.

Crystal Schaar said...

There are so many in my family, which is why Christmas is still my favorite Holiday. As a child, I was able to open one gift the night before. That was exciting. My stocking ended Christmas the next day. I never felt like Christmas was over until the stocking was empty. We always had a special coffee cake and lots of Christmas music. So special. Hope everyone has a great Holiday season.

millermall said...

My favorite holiday tradition started with my first child and I've carried it on with my second - we invite a handful of my daughter's friends over (and their moms) and we bake Christmas cookies. We bake all day and split the goodies among all of us. We have so much fun!

chipndalefan said...

I take my dog to see Santa at the mall and get her picture taken and then I take her out on Christmas eve to see the decorations. Believe it or not but she loves seeing the houses all decorated. I know it's time to head home when she curls up on my Mom's lap and buries her head. We're usually out about an hour or so. I also love to shop the day after Thanksgiving and this year I got my Mom to go with me!

pamala said...

Gorgeous birdhouses, and that stocking looks so fun and fabulous!
My fav holiday tradition is having clam chowder with my family on Christmas Eve, and watching cheesy movies after church. Love spending that time with them, even though my kids are now adults.

Gina said...

fave thing to do is bake lots of yummy Christmas treats with my 2 girls :) Thanks for the chance!

Taryn said...

One tradition we have is baking tons of Christmas cookies! Each year we make about 12 different kinds and give them away as gifts to friends and neighbors.
(Those bird houses are gorgeous!)

Stephanie A said...

2 favorite traditions: having the kids' Santa picture taken for the "Santa Book"(I now have to pay them-they're teens) & Christmas Eve--attending church, having a special dinner, sitting by the fire and having my husband read Luke 2 to the family.

Patti's Scrapinings said...

my fav. tradition is reading The Night Before Christmas to my kids on Christmas Eve. My 17 & 18 year old still like to hear me read that story. Then I allow the kids to open up one present on Christmas Eve right before bed.

Michele K. said...

My favorite is baking with my kids and letting them go crazy with the icing on Santa's cookies :)

Heather Folvik said...

Christmas was always a time filled with family - this is the first Christmas since my Grandmother has passed away but I think to keep her with us this year I will make apple pies and tourtiere (french meat pie) using her recipe. It was always out tradition to do this on Christmas eve day and even though she is no longer with us I will still do it, so my kids will always remember her.

Nancy W said...

Incredible Bird Houses! I love having my family over to celebrate and watch the kids open all their gifts. Then we play games, it's always a good time! Hugs from Conroe, TX!

My favorite holiday tradition is taking lots of photos(including the big group photo that everyone grumbles about, but later always ask for a copy of it). LOL!!.

ScrappinCricut said...

My favorite holiday tradition is putting up our ornament tree. It is an old brass wire ornament display that I purchased years ago and we hang all of our special ornaments on it every year! The children just love to help me get all of their special handmade ornaments on it each year. It sits on our dinning room sideboard and is as festive as can be!

Tina said...

I have a couple favorite traditions. I love going as a family to go cut our Christmas tree. Another one I love now that the kids can do it, is gingerbread houses. It is such great family time!!!

Thanks for offering such a great giveaway!!

Tammy said...

Thanks Glitz Girls for such a fantastic give away!
Happy Wishes & Merry Holidays

Bev said...

My favourite tradition is the kids opening their presents before breakfast of crossiants with ham, cheese and pineapple

Maria said...

My favorite Christmas tradition would have to be attending midnight mass on Christmas Eve, and catching a movie on Christmas day with all of us going in our P.J's. The kids get a kick out of it.

JgWM said...

Wow what a stocking!!! and it is my favorite collection.

One of our traditions was the children were able to open one present on christmas eve. We tried to make sure that one of the gifts was a game or movie that one of family had asked for. Then we could all have some thing to do together for the evening.

Have a wonderful holiday season with your family!!!

Ink Artist said...

ps love Glitz products

the cummard family said...

Cummards define traditions! One of my favorite things about marrying into the family! If I have to pick one for Christmas, it has to be none other than caroling. As hard and col as it is with small kids and getting them in and out of carseats. Nothing can compare to the looks on the faces of those we carefully pick to carol to. We gather at my in-laws before and pick out our Santa hats and jingle bells and make our rounds. Each stop is given a
plate of goddies and the melodies sung by each young and old LeBaron relative. After we return the hats and bells and chat around fire barrels. All while sipping on home made hot cocoa and donuts. I mean seriously, old fashion traditions always win!

I Love that all my children and grandchildren are able to come on Christmas Day for a special Christmas Dinner. This tradition started when my kids were small, my Mom was sick and it was hard for her to do a dinner. My Dad was always taking care of her, and was always busy, so we started having s Special Christmas Dinner. My Mom Dad, and my Grandma all would come down and enjoy Christmas, spend the day and have Christmas Dinner. Even through my Mom, Dad and Grandma are all gone, this is something I've been able to keep going now, even with my kids all married and with families of their own, we always manage to get together this one special day all at the same time. I Love the Christmas Spirit and the gift of having family at home. I know that I'm Blessed because my family all live close enough to make it home for Christmas.

I just love getting a new special ornament for our tree! This year it's going to be a purple/silver tree! Thanks for the chance to win! Merry Christmas! Feliz Natal!

Krafty Wahine said...

Wow, we have many holiday traditions...we drive around and look at Christmas lights, the four of us for Christmas Eve dinner, Grandma and Grandpa home over Christmas morning for breakfast and opening presents (they drive one hour to get here) are a few of my favorites.

Tami said...

I love opening all the goodies in my stocking on Christmas morning. We always have Dad's homemade eggnog on Christmas Eve and usually go to church. thank you. Love your products!!

Moxy77 said...

I love getting to open one present on Christmas eve and then when all the presents are opened on Christmas morning and dinner is finished, getting to make the rounds to all my relatives and see what all they got and then eating all there good pies and sweets. I would love to win this stocking. Thanks Melissa

at Christmas I think of those who aren't there anymore and visit the graes and leave a memorial. At the house I enjoy the warmth between my sons and mine new partner and together we will have the christmasdinner with after that a game. and home made treats

Every year we celebrate with the birds. We decorate a tree outside with all kinds of birdseed and peanutbutter and fruit decorations for the birds. It is fun to see the different feathered friends that come to share Christmas with us.

Grace said...

Over the Moon fabulous giveaway!! My favorite holiday tradition is makeing these very complicated Italian cookies with my mom. I take off from work and it is an all day process sitting on chairs and a big wood board on our laps rolling filling and decorating, my 80 year old Dad is the oven man and we order Pizza for dinner! Hugs Grace

Donna VW said...

I love the bird houses!

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is our church's giving tree. You pick a tag and it tells you the age of a person and what they would like. The gifts are for families in need. I really enjoy shopping for these gifts. I like the idea of a totally anonymous gift for someone that really needs it. It breaks my heart though when it is a little child and they ask for underwear or socks. That is when I like to add something unexpected in the package.

Pooch said...

My favourite holiday tradition is making homemade mincemeat. Everyone loves my mince pies! I also make some wicked Sloe Gin!

Kerry said...

WOW what a fabulous giveaway and those birdhouses are just gorgeous - Michelle is so talented.

My favourite tradition is leaving a mince pie out for Santa and a carrot for Rudolph on christmas eve.

CRICKET said...

well i would like 2 tell a little story there is 3 of us girls 2 years apart and i was the baby i remember this very well i was 5 and my sisters and i was sooo not thankful for our gifts that we only got 2 keep one thing and had 2 go give it 2 the kids dowm the road down a dark road with a wood bridge was some broken down homes with very very poor kids that every time we rode by we felt sooo sorry for them well after that every time we rode by we thought about what we did so the next year me and my sisters thought we did not want 2 have 2 give our gifts away so we were thankful and we thought we could guarante that so we asked if we could get some gifts for them and my mom thought about it and told us well how about this u can ((((you can pick a gift before u open your gifts and u will not know what it is until u g give it 2 a child and see just how happy one gift will make someone that will not get anything and that is what we did and 4 then on we took a gift each of us 2 the kids and we were so thankful for what we got and i have my own son and it has always been a tradition 4 us 2 take one thing under the tree with each persons name on it and donate 2 someone that is less fortunate than us and i hope my son will do the same and keep this tradition going in our family and by the way the rest of my family does this 2.................sorry this is soo long i just wanted 2 tell the story behind what started this..........AND ALSO I LOVE GLITZ ANY THING AND EVERY THING U GUYS MAKE OR SHOULD I SAY GALS MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR

2synical said...

My family and I spend the day watching Christmas Vacation over and over again...we play games and I get to play with all of my new scrapbook toys (that i'm sure santa will bring) ;)

Lissa said...

My fave tradition is taking the entire month of December off from our normal schooling (we're homeschoolers) to just focus on creating and togetherness as a family. We learn as much as we can about different CHristmas traditions around the world and makes lots of goodies and crafts to share with family, friends and those in need.

AndreaA said...

hooney1969One of my favorite traditions are to put bubble lights on our Christmas tree.
As a little girl my Sister and I use to sit in front of the tree and watch those bubble lights for hours on end.

Aims said...

the kids opening up gifts and playing with them for hours afterwards....and the tradition of watching a movie with grandma and grandpa.

meghancrum said...

I love decorating gingerbread houses with girlfriends, we tend to eat most of the candy but that makes it fun too!

Melissa Haavind said...

Day leading up to Christmas as a family we would drive around the town to see on the Christmas lights on the houses & yards.

My favorite tradition is decorating the tree with all of ny childrens past art and ornament creations. It is so great to look back and see the little handprints or their signatures from years ago. I miss them as little ones but it is so wonderful to see them grow up too! Happy holidays to all!!

Charisma3103 said...

I love those bird houses they are to adorable. The tradition we have is I put up the tree and decorate it while everyone sits on their Butts and watches lol

Veronica said...

Our favorite tradition is picking out our Christmas tree and taking pics of the dogs with their reindeer antlers on!

Heather said...

Love the birdhouses! My 15 year old loves Glitz! I'd have to share with her if I won, but that would be ok. My favorite holiday tradition is "feeding the reindeer". We make reindeer foof from Oatmeal and glitter(glitter to attract them and oatmeal to fuel them for their flight). Then the kids sprinkle it in the yard after dark on Christmas Eve!

Cassie said...

My favorite holiday tradition is the white elephant gift exchange that my family does every year on Hanukkah. It is so fun and we have had the same set of jams circulating for years.

Dana Tatar {datatar} said...

My favorite holiday tradition is playing Secret Santa. There is something so exciting about chosing a name out of a hat and doing some stealth shopping.

LOLena said...

Plum birdhouse is gorgeous. My favorite was always the stocking at our house too...that's why i always put good stuff inside there for my boys. My Mom always put a Whitman's chocolate sampler box in ours every year so i carry on the tradition. Thanks Glitz Girls for the chance to get one of your stockings! Happy Holidays!

LOLena said...

Don't see my post so i will try again. Because of my Mother's poor health i inherited the large Christmas dinner meal every year. It is tradition i will continue to do even now that she is no longer with us. It is always warm here and smells like cinnamon and ham and turkey. Yum.

Louie said...

My favorite holiday tradition is counting down the days till Christmas using a Christmas tree and ornament wall hanging that my mother and grandmother made when I was small. The little ornaments are each handcrafted of felt, beads and sequins - there are snowmen, angels, bulbs and on Christmas Day there is a cute Santa to put at the top of the tree. I adored this tradtion when I was small and now this wall hanging is in my entry way and the kids still look forward to getting it out every year. I never need to remind them to add an ornament in the morning. So special and heart warming.

My family and I live in an area that has a Celebration in Lights (basically you drive thru this beautiful park covered in gorgeous Christmas designs done entirely in lights. ) Every year on Christmas night we drive thru it. It is absolutely gorgeous and every year there is a different theme.

Ande L said...

On Christmas Eve our entire family gathers together at my Aunt's house. We each bring a dish to pass, exchange gifts with one another, and then settle in for a long night of family board games. It's one of my favorite traditions because everyone is so happy, interacting with one another, and having fun.

Erin said...

Thanks for the fab giveaway! My favorite tradition is opening one gift at a time starting with the youngest family member to the oldest.

Angelica said...

Totally love Glitz!!
My favorite tradition is opening one present at midnight!! we open the rest Christmas morning!!

Scrappin Kitty said...

one of my fave Christmas traditions is all of us singing Christmas carols everytime we get in the car to go anywhere. The radio doesn't even get turned on the whole month of Dec, and we all have a blast with it, especially when we don't know all of the words to the carol, so make up our own.

gina said...

The best Christmas we've had were hunting for the right Christmas tree each year with my children when they were small and with my husband.Crazy things happened,like a frenzy to find the right tree. From hitting my head on the pole that holds the trees up to look at. Picking a tree and then someone else is looking at the same tree but we got it first. Making cookies, hoping I was off work to be home with them, watching them open gifts, and screaming that this is just what I wanted... To live those times again just for one moment..

Anonymous said...

Every year my whole family gets together. We buy for all the kids not yet graduated from high school (almost 20 now). My Dad reaches under the tree and one by one delivers the gifts as we watch the babies to young adults unwrap and enjoy their gifts. It is great!

Krystle said...

My favorite tradition is having my sisters and I wait unstairs while my mom (errr Santa) got everything set up, then being told to go downstairs (no peeking) and get surprised by the full stockings, Christmas music, and abundant gifts!

Netty said...

My favorite holiday tradition is that we put up the Christmas tree the weekend before Christmas. My children love doing this and get excited. I will be making hot cocoa with Marshmellows and playing music.

Jelly said...

Our holiday tradition starts with putting 150 Christmas newsletters and Christmas cards in envelopes and sealing them. My kids are very happy to help... something about putting stamps on envelopes that are being sent to all over the world. :) I hope they'll continue to be this enthusiastic because it's a lot of work to do just on my own!

Rosita said...

my favorite holiday tradition is telling my kids the stories of special ornaments. Like the ones made out of legos which dd had put in a muffin tin and put in the oven. I didn't know about anything in the oven, and preheated it for a cake...they melted together and made some neat colors/shapes. and then there are the ones Grandma made, and the ones Mama crocheted...

Joy said...

Glitz Girls, I love your products! You have identified yourselves very well because you're designs are definitely set apart from the rest and so unique. Love the flair!

My favorite holiday tradition is making gingerbread people with my mom. She is the best cook and baker! She cuts no corners, and everything is made from scratch. Delicious! We always make both boy and girl cookies, and the most fun is decorating them. We laugh, we share, we have such holiday fun!

Mom and I used to make cookies and candies each year to take to co-workers and friends at their jobs. Also people like the Postman, newspaper delivery people. We would wrap up Holiday decorated paper plates and I would make small gift cards to go on the ribbons that thanked each person or group for their help or service during the year. Mom has since gone to Heaven, but I have continued the tradition in her memory, and still enjoy doing so! It's a fun tradition that makes alot of people very happy during the Holidays, including the givers!

LaMaMaLa said...

My favorite tradition....well, my parents always go crazy with seafood, so we eat crab legs and seafood crepes for dinner! I think thats my favorite!

Kara said...

My favorite tradition is that DH and I spend christmas together, just the two of us, and we have so much fun. Christmas Eve we have a romantic dinner and watch A Christmas Carol, then we go to bed and somehow during the night we each manage to fill the stockings without waking each other up. Christmas morning we open stockings, have a decadent breakfast, then find the fireplace channel on TV, open the tree presents, and spend the rest of the day in jammies just playing with our new 'toys' and enjoying the time together.

Paula G said...

My favorite Christmas tradition is our family cookie day - I am so fortunate that 4 generations of my family are able to get together and share lots of fun conversation and laughter while we bake. I always take lots of photos and these are some of my favorite pictures to look back on.

Jenny M said...

My favorite tradition is Christmas pj's. We all get new pj's Christmas Eve to wear that night.

Love the giveaway!

We always bake and make candy - I love baking. We always make pumpkin bread, cranberry orange bread, sugar cookies and fudge. Then we have carried on my husband's family tradition of swedish meatballs on Christmas Eve. Yum.

Ana said...

I just got married this year and still don't have children, but this year my husband and I decided to start our own tradition so that we can pass it on when we have children: we are going to begin making our own x-mas tree ornament! Whether it be baking clay ornaments or decorating glass spheres, we are giong to start this and pass it on! We are excited!

Ms. Cheryl said...

This is the second year for my family's newest tradition. We meet once a week for some fun and we exchange one gift each. Tomorrow night is our Monopoly game night and I got them each a tee shirt with thier names on them. The letters look like they were cut from the monopoly property deeds.Waay cool. We will have a movie night to see the Chipmunk's Squeakwell and thier gift will be a movie card tucked inside a "potty pocket"( a toilet paper tube covered and embellished). One week we don't have anything special planned yet, to be announced. The last day will be our traditional Christmas day but we have to do it on Christmas Eve morning because as a CCU nurse I have to work Christmas day this year. Last year we had a concert night and we may do that again.
I want the Plum Crazy line so bad I can hardly stand it. All my fingers and toes are crossed. Thanks, ms.cheryl

Theresa Grdina said...

Wow....I love having all three of my daughters (ages 23, 21, and 18) get their stockings on Christmas morning and hop onto my DH's and my bed! They rifle through their stocking and then we get up and head for the tree!!! This year, all 3 girls will be home. *sigh* it's going to be a piece of heaven!

Bella said...

My favorite tradition was Christmas Eve at my grandparents house with my huge Italian family. I would bring all my scrapbooking stuff there, and all the kids would create their own ornament. Each kid would put their ornament on the tree and after dinner, we all gathered around the tree. My grandma/nana would pick her favorite ornament off the tree and whoever made that ornament would get a $100 bill. Imagine that excitement when you're a kid!!! After that we managed to eat tons of desserts, fruit and chestnuts, even though we were so full from dinner. To this day, we still carry on with that tradition. Everyone looks forward to it and all I can say is thank goodness for scrapbooking! I've even managed to get several of the girls addicted to scrapbooking through the years! :) Merry Christmas to all and hoping 2010 will be filled with love, peace and happiness.

scrapper al said...

What wonderful stories! We really don't have any traditions in our family so I'll share a memory instead. One year, my dad got a deal on three(!) Christmas trees so we had fun decorating each one differently. I'm pretty sure we ran out of ornaments that year, lol.

Lindsy C said...

Ever since I was little I have always been the one to set out the nativity display in our house. It came from my grandma...it is an old cardboard stable with a glittered star (we've had to re-glitter it 2 times!), a red Christmas light that - when plugged in - glows inside the stable, and a lot of plastic/porcelein figurines. I always have to choose which ones to put out because over the years we've accumulated a lot of different wisemen, mangers, baby Jesus' and shepherds! lol. I always take my time putting each piece in the exact 'right' place each season. I even put gold garland inside the stable to look like hay! It is a very special tradition for me every year :D

Daniela/Neliz said...

My best x-mas tradition is decorating the tree :D I just love it. When the tree is up THEN its x-mas for me.

The Miners said...

Christmas morning breakfast with pancakes then diving into the presents with my kids!

Renata Pacheco said...

My favourite traditions is to see the kids opening theirs presents below the Christma's Tree!

katarinas mama said...

We do a brother-sister gift exchange between my three kids on Christmas Eve. It helps take away the frenzy of Christmas Morning and they spend so much time selecting and making their gifts.

Lucinda said...

My favorite traditions include making gingerbread houses and acting out the nativity with all the nieces and nephews!

Amy Megan said...

My favorite holiday tradition is taking out my Christmas music box collection and playing each song before putting the music boxes on display. Then, each night in December, I get to enjoy the sweet sounds over and over again. Often I'll be in a different room and hear one of the music boxes playing, because the whole family loves to wind them up and listen to the pretty sounds that only a music box can make.

kim c said...

favorite tradition is candlelight service on Christmas eve. i don't attend church as often as i'd like, but this is a Must every year.

btw...super love the new olivia line. i've picked up a couple of sheets already. merry Christmas.

Cassie said...

My favorite tradition is getting pajamas on Christmas Eve. The kids just go crazy because they get to open one present.

jackie said...

I'm gliting the town with your link! I've gone plum crazy! Love it.

jackie said...

Ok, yes, snowing in Pearland/Houston, TEXAS! One of the best traditions was letting my daughter put out the cookies and milk for Santa! She's 21 now, but still follows tradition for fun!

.lyndsey. said...

I would have to say my favorite holiday tradition would be getting together with my family for the special christmas eve service at church and then getting up super early to join everyone at my grandmother's house for a home-cooked breakfast followed up with my granddad playing santa claus. Always cherish these times!

wendipooh13 said...

Tina Gentry said...

Wow, talk about brightenng someone's Christmas - love the stocking goodies! It's hard to choose 1 favorite Christmas tradition, but I'd have to say participating in the Pick An Angel program is mine. It's very rewarding to help a child have a nice Christmas, and each year I try to give a little more.

L84AROPIN said...

The women in my family get together and spend two days in the kitchen making chocolates, cookies, caramels, and pies, usually on the weekend before Christmas. Then we make plates and deliver them to friends and neighbors. I love all that girl time (and the chocolates)!!

MICHELLE said...

My favorite holiday tradition is Christmas day in general. I'm always the 1st one up and do mandatory wake ups for everyone! I'm 22 and STILL do this LOL! Mom & Dad make me wait until other family members come over before I can even touch the presents! It kills me!! LOL Then we have a big Christmas dinner :) We used to always have the day with grandpa, but he's passed away. Grandma now lives in the same city so she's now incorporated into the day :)

Michele said...

My favorite tradition is sitting around the fireplace on christmas eve exchanging 1 gift with my sister. When we were little, we would beg to open the presents before we went to bed. Of course mom and dad so no because we had to wait for santa. When we got old enough, we diecided to start exchanging the gifts we bought each other. It has become our special time with each other.

Gigikay said...

My fav tradition is giving an ornament to each child and grandchild each year. This was done for me and now I do it. I am now 60 so we have a lot of ornaments. Then as we decorate the tree together the memories flow and we talk about them. Each ornament has a meaning for the person that has happened during the year. The year each grandchild was born I made an ornament with a note rolled up inside and then added glitter and other small items. The note was opened up as they got older and read to them. It told them about my excitment of their birth and some of my hopes for them.

Canadian Candy said...

Wow How do I pick just one favorite tradition? Over the years we've come to enjoy several traditions. As my kids are now older, we've started a couple new traditions about 10 years ago and counting!. Our traditions are alittle different, and can't have one without the other, so about 10 years ago, when our kids were old enough to understand and see how much fun anticipation can be, we decided to make christmas last ALL day. Instead of a huge paper ripping contest, all at once, one after another, we each open one gift every 60 minutes. We all sit and watch each person open their gift, then we would continue on watching everyone.

My kids REALLY love doing this, christmas literally lasts ALL day.. Sometimes well into the early evening lol Thats the lucky one with the most gifts. Even at 17, 20 and 22, they get just as excited about it as they did when they were 4, 7 and 9 lol. Not sure which one does it, but someone always runs into the kitchen and sets the timer on the stove cause when that rings its a mad dash to the living room. At the same time when we decided to make christmas all day long, we also decided to make it alittle more fun, so we draw names and the name that you picked was the person who you decided which present he/she gets to open next!! Its so much fun, of course if they got to pick their own gifts, they would always go for the biggest box, but in our house, you have to wait till your gift decider finds the gift for you and hands it to you. So no matter how bad you want to open the big one, you have to wait till your gift decider says you can. lol Its quite funny to watch. I"m not sure what I enjoy the most, watching the excitement as the clock counts down, and the yelling of how many minutes are left by one of the kids.. to all sitting down together, watching one gift at a time get opened. If I have to pick my most favorite, and the most favorite of my kids, it would be opening the gifts 1 hour at a time.
Christmas lasts forever in our house!!

My favorite Christmas tradtion is taking the kids for a drive down "candlestick lane" ( 2 blocks of houses super decorated for Christmas) on Christmas Eve. My parents started this tradtion when I was little and I have passed it on to my kids. Even now that they are all in college they still insist we go every year!

Sandra said...

Our favorite tradition is buying the boys a Christmas Ornament that goes with whatever they are into that year. I have everything from Choo-choo trains on my tree to football ornaments to a little wedding couple when one got married. I am hoping to have a little stork ornament to add this year or next..... Maybe?

With our families living in a different country, I have to say that our favorite is having family members with us for Christmas. This year for the 1st time in 9 years we are going to our families to spend Christmas. Love the stocking and thanks for the chance to win - MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE -HO, HO, HO ,,,,

Mark said...

My favorite tradition is buying my daughters matching pajama's to wear on Christmas Eve. They are 15 and 10 and the 5 year age difference makes for some drama when the 15 year old has to wear Tinkerbell jammies. This year I find some cute "punk" pj pants I am going to match with some black t-shirts that I will rock-out with some iron-ons. Just to appease the oldest.

ktepesch said...

How can I choose just one favorite memory from this time of year? I love every memory and family tradition that we have. Here are just a few of my most looked forward to traditions. Baking Christmas cookies with the kids. It is funny how my husband never fails to get in a flour fight with the kids. We always go out to dinner, for Chinese, on Christmas Eve with my husband's family. Oh and how could I forget.....getting the whole family, my husband, my son, my 2 daughter and myself, and piling up in our bed to watch Christmas classic cartoons at night! This year now that the younger one are old enough I plan on starting a new tradition. Making our own Christmas ornaments out of cinnamon dough or salt dough. Merry Christmas and may you all have a blessed Holiday season!

My favorite tradition is drinking 1/2 cranberry and 1/2 ginger ale in my mom's 'good' glasses on Christmas morning...we thought we were so cool growing up drinking this!

CindyB said...

My favorite holiday tradition is having tons of local BBQ and all the fixings on hand as family and friends come into town. Always a big hit!

AMANDA JACKSON said...

Christmas is my fave time of year as I love all things glitzy and sparkly. Our family used to decorate a pillow case instead of a stocking and me and my sister used to always say every year we would wake each other up if "he" had been and eat the chocolate we got left but every year we felt sick with excitement and couldnt manage even one chunk!! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win this stocking as the papers would match the photos I've yet to take of me in my new purple Christmas outfit and new accessories! This year I've spent so much time scrapping old memories that I forgot to make new ones. This Christmas therefore, I intend to PARTY and then SCRAP!!

My family loves to read a portion of the Christmas story from the Bible. This last year for the first time, my 9 year old asked if she could do some of the reading. This is the child who will not read in public or even respond to a simple "Hello" from friends without turning every shade of red. So, u can guess that my reaction was to be in a state of total shock! Now...this was an awesome scrapbook moment! This was also the beginning of new Christmas tradition, she has decided to give us a devotion that she has worked on all by herself. The Christmas season has really changed her from a shy 9 year old to a tender "Christ" filled 10 year old young lady. I am very thankful for this time of year! I hope everyone as an awesome Christmas!

Every year i make a gingerbread house iwth my oldest son, the day before we put up the tree. The next day, the tree goes up, we play Christmas music while we work, and then myself, husband, and now 3 kids sit down and decorate our own ornaments to add to the tree.
