Non-Traditional Holiday Traditions You’ll Love!
Does your family have a non-traditional holiday tradition you love? We asked this question on Facebook and got some amazing answers. Check out these 10 fun non-traditional holiday traditions!
Mia H: My husband's family has a tradition of having pizza for dinner on Christmas Eve and leaving a slice out for Santa instead of cookies. Because “Santa might appreciate something different than cookies.”
Nicky T: When my daughter was little, she was scared of the idea of Santa. So we started using the concept of Gru & the Minions. We leave out bananas and candy canes for the minions when they come with Gru to leave presents. She's almost six and we still do this every year!
Elizabeth W: We invite all of my son's friends whose parents don't want them around or they don't approve of their life choices/styles over for Thanksgiving dinner. It's very old school. No electronics allowed. They come in and put their devices in a bowl. Then we sit around playing cards or board games. It's a lot of fun!
Kalya C: Every year my mom and I go shopping at a 24/7 Walgreen's late at night on Christmas Eve for last minute Christmas gifts. When my daughter gets a little older I'll bring her with, too.
Sandra D: We have homemade lasagna made by my Catholic-Italian mom. It has sausage in it. Oh, did I mention this is for Hanukkah?!
Jennifer D: Stir Fry-day! My family eats some form of stir fry/ Chinese food the day before Thanksgiving every year.
Constance H: I don't love this, but it is definitely non-traditional. My husband’s family has oyster stew for BREAKFAST Christmas morning!!!
Rebecca B: Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve we would throw a tablecloth on the living room floor and eat a meal of hors-d'oeuvres.
Kattie A: We have Chinese takeout and watch Jurassic Park on Christmas Day.
Jera W: We have a snowman on the 4th of July! We make a snowman during winter and keep it until July. Then we have a snowball fight!
