Holiday Ritual

Holiday Ritual

Every year for the last 10 years or so, my family cross over the Mason-Dixie Line into the South to celebrate the holidays with my aunt and cousins. When we were younger, our Christmas morning would be like many other families: us kids anxiously waiting outside the living room for that moment when our parents gave us the go and we caught the first glimpse of the trees with all the presents underneath and wrapped pretty.

Now that we're older we still get up early, but instead of diving right into present opening we head to Einstein Bros Bagels and get our breakfast and coffee fix before heading back home. Of course, no Christmas would be right without our usual cinnamon roll post-presents and lasagna dinner later on! Talk about carbo-loading! ;)

Does your family have a Christmas morning ritual or something unique that you do for the holidays?
