God Jul!

Getting out my Christmas decorations this weekend, (aka raiding my Mom's basement storage closet) reiterated the fact that the tradition in Christmas is what makes this time of year so comforting and merry.  For years our customary d├ęcor has consisted of Swedish "Tomtes".  My Grandma Ingrid always had a grouping in her home.  My mom started me on my own collection this year, but basically everything else jolly had to be swiped from her castoffs.  I always love the different ways families celebrate the holidays.  From a Chinese gift exchange to midnight mass, all families have their unique twist to what makes the holidays distinctivley their own.  What do you all do to celebrate the season?
