The holiday season is a time which brings family and friends together with many different types of traditions.  We asked The WAVE’s on-air hosts to answer a series sentences or questions about the holidays.

Today’s sentence to complete is My favorite holiday tradition is…

Pat Prescott: “…wrapping gifts, cooking and listening to music on Christmas eve.”

Talaya Trigueros: “…actually on Christmas Eve when we as Latinos really celebrate. I make traditional New Mexico Pozole and Bizcochitos (anise sugar cookies) and we eat Mexican and Salvadorian tamales. All the kids get a present and us adults exchange White Elephant gifts. Then everyone goes home and waits for the Santa Clause arrival of which those gifts are cheerily opened on Christmas morning!”

Deborah Howell: “…having the eldest female in the family read the Christmas story aloud from the Bible while we all gather around her feet . Also, I really loved caroling when I lived in Minnesota. Our little chorale would go from hospital to retirement homes and also around regular neighborhoods, singing and hopefully bringing some joy. It was cold, and people would open up their homes to us and sometimes offer hot cider. Lovely!!”

Keri Tombazian: “…Christmas carols and hymns at candlelight services Christmas Eve then going out to dinner at a local restaurant with the kids and a couple of cherished friends whose families are far away. It gives us a break before the hustle and bustle of Christmas morning at my mother’s and hosting Christmas dinner.”

Bill Dudley: “…cruising other neighborhoods to see their lights. Watching A Charlie Brown Christmas”

Mike Sakellarides: “…the holiday meals my mother prepared for our family. For Greeks a roast leg of lamb is just as appropriate as a turkey or the tradition my wife’s family enjoyed: a nice Polish ham!”

Brie Tennis: “…watching my husband and daughter put up “Snow Town”. It’s a village they created with ceramic houses, roads, people ice skating, medical facilities and more. Super fun and cute!”

Marina Wilson: “…baking yummy Sicilian cookies from recipes that my Grandma handed down to me. We used to bake them together every year and I still do that even though she is gone. She is now filling Heaven with the smell of Anise, Hazelnut, Almond and Chocolate for the Angels.”

Tomorrow we learn the answer to ‘My favorite holiday memory is…’
