Open Thread: What are your Holiday Traditions?

Merry Christmas Happy Early Lunar New Year by a couple of months Happy Holidays, from all of us at! Our family being the standard Chinese converted-Baptists ripped apart by parental divorce and family problems, our family traditions have been less the sitting around eating Christmas Ham and steamed rice, and more taking my mom out to the Elephant Bar for lunch. I am, however, eagerly looking forward to Sunday, where a bunch of bloggers – past and present – will meet up for a nice dinner. Hopefully that’ll be a nice tradition.

But enough about me — what about you? As a lot of us our children of immigrants that don’t celebrate Christmas in the traditional way, what are your family traditions? Leave a comment below and join in on the conversation!
