My favorite tradition is one my husband and I have held since before we were married, but it has grown and is more fun now that the kids (ages 3 and 4) are here.

Every Christmas Eve, we get in the car, turn on some fun Christmas tunes, and drive around looking at lights. Delaware County has some GREAT decorations. We all have fun picking out our favorites and sing along to the songs.

One big bonus - driving around in the dark really helps calm down the kids... It makes falling asleep on the big night MUCH easier!

I love to visit Dutch Wonderland during the holidays. My son loves to play in the cold and drink hot chocolate. The lights are so wonderful to see. I

I love cinnamon smell during holidays season. Also, I love all the lights and decorations everywhere.  My little one is asking me a lot of questions about Christmas and it is so nice to share these moments with her! You just want to smile because everything make you feel well! This is so nice! I Love Christmas time and I would like everyone to be happy at least for a moment :-)

Some of the things we like to do around Christmas are going to the mall to see Santa and have the kids' picture taken with him, we started going to Sesame Place for their Very Furry Christmas Event, which is a ton of fun, driving around our town, and the towns nearby, to check out everyone's Christmas lights and decorations, and putting up our Christmas tree on Christmas Eve. The kids also enjoy watching the Christmas programs on television and playing in the snow, of course! There are tons of things to do with the family during the Christmas season, and we enjoy all of them :)

We love to go out and cut our tree down. Found Wata farms in Quakertown last year and loved it. Definitely going back this year!

We go to Longwood Gardens. It is a just a magical experience for all ages.

We love Ambler our small little town! Santa comes on a train next week, we all walk to boro hall and light the tree and then can sit on his lap. Very fun - MAGICAL!

Tree trimming is my favorite thing to do around the holidays...Longwood Gardens is amazing...Doing things for others make this time of year even better

Since I am a working mom, I take off a day before the holidays to spend it with my boys having Christmas fun around the area. Last year we did Longwood Gardens and this year we are planning Macys Downtown! (I can remember as a child waiting in line at Wanamakers to see the Dickens Village and I cannot wait to experience it with my kids!

We take the train to the city and go to the Macy's Christmas Light Show then Dicken's Village and dinner. I remember my parents taking me as a child and want to pass on the tradition to my children.

For the 2nd year we will do the combo pass to Hershey & Dutch Wonderland-CANNOT beat a full day at both parks for $19.25 a person!!!!! Especially great for younger kids (ours are 2,5,7). We also try to do local attractions, our chuch Christmas Bazaar, local holiday parade, and The "real" Santa who is at the Court at King of Prussia.

Our children are 2 (years) and 4 mos. We started a new tradition this year of taking the kids to Shadybrook Farm in Yardley. They have an awesome drive thru light display. After driving through we stopped inside had their pic taken with Santa and then roasted marshmellows by the fire. It was great. We are definitely making this a yearly tradition!

My husband and I have two girls, ages 5 and 2. They are both so excited about Christmas this year and would love to see this show! Max and Ruby is one of their favorites. As for our traditions, we make sure to visit Santa each year at the Montgomery Mall. My parents have started a tradition of taking all of their grandkids on the North Pole Express in New Hope, which is a lot of fun. We also go to Peddlers Village every Black Friday to look at the lights and ride the carousel. We recently moved to Chalfont and plan to make Santa's arrival on a horse drawn sleigh another tradition. I love the sense of community this time of year :-)

Went to see Santa at Christkindlmrkt Bethlehem. He is a great Santa and it's a fun tradition we started with our 2 yr old daughter last year. We also checked out Dutch Winter Wonderland this year and had a great time! For lights, we love Koziars Christmas Village!

Our family visits Peddlers Village for their annual lighting and Gingerbread House display ... and Santa walking around (kids actually got to high five him this year- usually too many people), We go to Tabora Farms in Hilltown for hot chocolate and other goodies often, We always go to Perkasies Tree Lighting & Santa on the tippy top of the firetruck. Great memories, and so much more with having young children! Matthew & Maggie write (well, relay) what they want and our Elves on the Shelf "sam & lucille" take them bck to Santa. Today they work up to the their Elves binging in the Cheeto's container! Family Christmas Eve get together, and Christmas in the cabin. Can't wait for Christmas! We love Max & Ruby, loveee the animation and wonderful colors! Also it's nice b/c I have one of each as well, so they feel like they are apart of the story... ohhh Christmas tree from Bob White Farm!
