    I remember dressing up my son in a Santa outfit and taking pictures of him next to the Christmas tree.

  2. Kelly D says

    Our tradition is my kids help me decorate the tree every year, and my memory is for my son’s first Christmas we took him out to visit my brother. He was only 3 months old and so cute.

  3. Sara Floyd says

    This year will be my daughter’s first Chistmas! I hope we have a lot of traditions this year

  4. Stephanie Phelps says

    I remember my oldest sons first Christmas I was so excited and when the time came he only wanted to play with the boxes and paper! We let the kids open one present on Christmas eve and then in the ,morning I wake them up about 5 am to hot chocolate and very loud Christmas music!

  5. D SCHMIDT says

    My favorite memory is baking sugar cookies with my children over christmas and my youngest son trying to play with the tinsel.

  6. liz says

    Our first son was born in August through the gift of adoption. We had tried for many many years to have a child. This made that “first” Christmas our most memorable by far. Since then we have welcomed a daughter 2 years after in November…another son in August and another in March. So we have had a “first” 4 times so far:) Hoping for another “1st Christmas” next year;)

  7. Jessie C. says

    The first holiday of our baby we celebrated with a huge family get-together and took tons of pictures.

  8. Margaret Smith says

    We try to get our kids matching pajamas every Christmas, so on Christmas morning they look adorable.

  9. sara haaf says

    We make the same cookies every year and my son’s first xmas we spent with extended family and he was fascinated by the christmas lights.

  10. Jessica To says

    We had my whole family over for my son’s first Christmas. He was more interested in watching his cousins than the presents.

  11. Jessica says

    Last year was my daughter’s first Christmas. She loved playing with wrapping paper and getting tastes of Christmas desserts.

  12. Pam O says

    My son enjoyed the paper and ribbons more than the gifts on his first Christmas morning. He played with boxes and paper for hours.

  13. sara s says

    We give an ornament on St Nicholas day. This is starting to be one of my favorite traditions.

  14. Tari Lawson says

    We put the boys in the car, pop in a Christmas CD and go out looking at local light displays.
    My son’s first Christmas, he played with the bows on the packages instead of his toys.

  15. rayraycartucci says

    My Jack’s first Christmas was so special. His picture was on the front page of our towns paper. He was sitting in Santa’s lap. Now he won’t go near Santa…he is too scared. Last year when we took him to see Santa he said” no thanks I don’t need nothing” teehee.

  17. Christine says

    My favorite, and the funniest, was that my daughter was more interested in the bows than the actual gifts.
    Thanks for the chance!

  18. Linda Stewart says

    Elf on The Shelf has become a loved tradition. I also take time to make a different fun treat with each of the boys. Patience is my virtue :)

  19. jennifer says

    Every year, we go to church on Christmas Eve with the whole family and then drink hot cocoa before bed. I think this year’s Christmas will be my favorite memory since my 1 year old will now be able to enjoy it with his older brother!

  20. Cynthia R says

    got special ics done with santa and individually and bought a special first christmas ornament.

  21. rachel travis says

    We sit around the tree CHristmas Eve and read the Christmas story from the Bible and drink hot chocolate!

    Our favorite tradition is sharing cookie recipes and bringing them all together for everyone to have some of each. And the family gets together and celebrate’s Jesus’ birthday!

  23. beth shepherd says

    We have a tradition to make candy and cookies with the kids every year. I love putting on their first Christmas outfit and taking lots of pics.

  24. Melissa M says

    Every year we get the kids new pjs, new movie, and a new blanket and let them open it on Christmas Eve.

  25. says

    We do a pretty simple Christmas and spend it mostly with family. To be honest I don’t really remember any of my kids’ “first” Christmas except I have this one photo of my second child on his knees staring in wonder at an ornament on the tree (at my mom’s where he could actually reach it) and it’s so precious! He was 9 months old at the time.

  26. Alycia says

    We always put up the tree and decorations the Saturday after Thanksgiving, go to the same family’s house every year for Christmas Eve, and Christmas morning have a late brunch! It’s so much fun to have so much family time.

  27. Brittney House says

    For my son’s first Christmas I took him to Santa for pictures. We also like to host talent shows every Christmas when the family comes together.

  28. Jennifer Marie says

    My son had more fun playin with the wrapping paper than his presents on his first Christmas.

  29. Nadine L says

    Our biggest tradition is going to my aunt’s house for a big family get together on Christmas Eve. My Mom had 17 brothers and sisters , so between the, their spouses, kids, grandkids etc… it’s always a huge turnout and lots of fun

    On Christmas morning we put a lit candle in a cupcake, place it in front of the manger and sing Happy Birthday to baby Jesus.

    On Christmas Eve we drive around looking at Christmas lights and then come home and drink eggnog

    We open up on present on Christmas Eve, a new set of pajamas already washed and ready to go. We then watch a movie on the couch as a family in our new pajamas with some hot cocoa and popcorn!

  33. jaimee wood says

    our favorite tradition is driving up to the snow each year and cutting down our Christmas tree and then playing. This year, we brought friends and had even more fun.

  34. Katherine says

    I remember my 3 year old trying to wake up his baby sister on her first Christmas morning. She didn’t care, but he was so cute!!

  35. Christine Mayfield says

    Our family tradition is to let the kids decorate sugar cookies. They get to put as much icing on as they want and it is always fun to watch their creations

  36. Stephanie Larison says

    We have both sides of the family come over for a nice big dinner, then open presents. Tons of pics are taken, I definitely want to hold onto those memories, and I love to scrapbook, so they’ll be remembered forever. They sure don’t stay little very long.

  37. Paula Tavernie says

    Our tradition is we each get to open one gift from under the tree! I remember when my kids were younger they had a smile on their face that would make my heart glow!! We are excited about starting our tradition with my grandson! We have also started the Elf tradition with the grandbabies this year!!
