Make My Saturday Sweet - Blog Hop #55

Welcome to my weekend blog hop! Here you get to link your favorite post of the week and share it with other bloggers. Just remember to visit the last two links before yours and leave a comment and make their Saturday sweet!

Today I'm sharing some of my favorite Christmas photos. My own hop doesn't have a theme, so you are welcome to link your family friendly blog below.

The theme on Friendship Friday is "Holiday Fun."

What is my favorite holiday? That's a hard question! I love all of the big holidays and even birthdays when cheerful decorations, scrumptious food and dear family members are involved. These kinds of celebrations make me the happiest. If I have to pick just one, then I'd say, "Christmas!"

Share a favorite holiday tradition old or new. My favorite family tradition at Christmas time is opening one present on Christmas Eve. My parents  began this tradition when we were kids, because we lived part of our growing up years in Germany. Many Europeans open all their presents on Christmas Eve, often waiting until midnight to do so. I liked that we could focus on one present that night and then wake up on Christmas morning to many brightly wrapped Christmas presents. If we woke up to a white Christmas, that was even cooler. I still do this with our kids. They open one at night and then the rest in the morning. Most of our Christmases have been in South Africa, where it's summertime at that time of the year, so there's no chance of a white Christmas.
