From baking and presents to movies and games, what are your Christmas Eve traditions?

Christmas Eve is around the corner, and every family has its own tried-and-true tradition. We want to know about those Christmas Eve traditions you celebrate with loved ones.

Does everyone gather around the living room and open gifts before Santa has a chance to drop down the chimney? Does you stand outside with Uncle Joe in freezing temperatures while he barbecues steaks for everyone? Do you get dressed up and go out for a movie and a fast food burger? Or do you make tamales and play board games in between batches?

No tradition is too strange or simple or grand. Share your stories and photos of the traditions by e-mailing Lodi Living Editor Lauren Nelson at laurenn@lodinews.com or call 369-7035.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
