Christmas Traditions as an Adult

Before I go into my Christmas tradition as an adult, I need some help. How do you get the sentences and paragraghs to separate on this stupid new blogger??? I have tried everything and it still just goes on and on and on like the Energizer Bunny!Lol Now I would like to share my adult Christmas tradition. As I told you we celebrated Christmas Eve and then just went to Grandma's on Christmas Day. Well then I got married! Yikes I didn't know there was any other way until my darling hubby informed me that we were not celebrating Christmas on Christmas Eve!!! Well I was flabbergasted but he finally won out in the end. And by this time my grandparents were too old to go on Christmas Eve so we would go there first to celebrate with them, then go to my inlaws and celebrate with them and then to my Mom's and have the ham and tea and open gifts with her and my brothers. Then on Christmas morning my kids would come down and find what Santa had left them. And my Mom would come over and see what they got. So it worked out really well. Since my Mom passed everyone comes to my house. Instead of ham sandwiches, everyone brings a side dish and dessert and we have supper. My brother and my nieces and nephews come too so we have a good time. Then when they go home to celebrate with their other families, we open presents with our kids and grandkids. They get sooo excited to see what they are going to get. Then we just sit around and talk and snack until they have to go home. On Christmas Day we get up early and go see what our grandkids got from Santa and then they go to their other families for dinner. But they come by afterwards and snack and we have a good time. I don't really think it matters when you celebrate Christmas as long as it is with family or friends with lots of love to share and memories to make. Christmas is all about honoring Christ's birth and the love he gave and still gives us with his sacrifice. So I hope everyone in blogger land has a very Happy and Blessed Christmas and gets to share it in your special way with your family and friends!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!! Tomorrow I'll tell you a funny about Christmas.

Hi Val! LOVE hearing about others Christmas Celebrations! We're a Christmas Day kind of family!
Not sure what's wrong but you may need to look at your format (where you see the lines) when making a new post. Check and see which one you've clicked on. The format at the very bottom shows no paragraphs and I'm thinking that's the one you've clicked on.
Stop by my blog as I received my gifts!! THANK YOU for them!!
And have a very Merry Christmas!
