Holiday Traditions!

Christmas Christmas time is here, Time for love... time for cheer!  I am totally stoked about Christmas!  I can hardly wait.  Christmas is by FAAAAR my fave holiday.  I love it because of all the music and the cheer and the good deeds and the over all sentiment.  Traditions for me include decorating a tree, Christmas carols/ music non stop.  As a kid we used to go caroling.  Now we make candy... pecan logs, turtles, chocolate covered cherries, and personal fave- Divinity!  Tastes like heaven!  Whit and I started a new tradition, making a gingerbread house.  So excited for that.  We are running behind schedule this year.  I am embarrassed to even admit it actually, usually the tree goes up the day after Thanksgiving if not the day of!  It's time to whip into shape, I and I declare today the day. 
Since my father passed away, I have made it a point to spend Christmas with my mother and sister in Denver.  My sis has 4 gorgeous children, two of which have birthdays surrounding Christmas.  So it's nice to make the trip.  We usually make tamales, and watch a new Christmas movie that comes out in theaters.  We get together with family in Denver,and  have a party.  For Dinner we fry a turkey, sooooooooooooo yum!  I leave in less than two weeks, and I can't wait.  What are your holiday traditions?
I nabbed this idea from In Joy and Sorrow  Don't forget to enter her yummy giveaway!

My husband is practically begging to fry a turkey. "Can we? Can we?" I guess I'll have to let him have it one of these days!
