There's nothing quite as traditional as celebrating the holidays the way your family has for years. But sometimes, it's fun to mix things up a little, to add your own twist and create new traditions.
We want to know: What are your family Christmas traditions, and how have you changed traditions in your family? Do you hand out roses in the hallway instead of mistletoe? Do you have a spaghetti dinner instead of prime rib or turkey? Maybe you hang lights on a fake palm tree instead of a traditional Christmas tree, or get out of town together and make it a tradition to boycott the holiday. Whatever you do — interesting, weird or unique — we want to know.
Send your newfangled Christmas tradition stories and photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Lodi Living Editor Lauren Nelson at 209-369-7035.
