Warm milk and cookies

Some people think Christmas is about giving and receiving, but it’s a lot more than that. Although those things are great, some people would rather decorate a tree, bake cookies, build gingerbread houses, or sip some eggnog. Whatever you do on christmas it’s gotta be somewhat enjoyable or fun. Some traditions might be better than others, but there’s gotta be a top 3.

1. Baking Christmas cookies. I think baking Christmas cookies is easily one of the top and most favored thing to do around Christmas time. Not only do you bake them, but you can decorate them to your liking. The main thing christmas cookies are known for is eating them, but another popular thing with these cookies is giving them to Santa. Even if you don’t eat all the cookies, you can save them for however long you want.

2. The Elf on the Shelf. The Elf on the Shelf is one of the most classic things to do around Christmas time. Some families give their elf it’s own name, and possibly theme. The Elf’s purpose is to make kids behave good and not get on santa’s naughty list. This Elf will watch the house during the day, but when everyone’s sleeping he goes to the North Pole to report everyone’s behavior.

3. Making gingerbread house. Some people may make gingerbread houses to eat them or to just build them. Now see, when making a gingerbread house you can do it solo or with some family. Gingerbread houses are filled with great tasting snacks and candy. The best part of building a gingerbread house is when your done, you get to eat it.
