Spending time with family and playing the game Skyrim. I enjoy the cold winter theme landscapes that remind me of the season. I like to get some snacks and cozy in for some game playing . I also love my mom’s lasagna, which is a tradition for our Christmas meal.

I made my own tradition – I have a group of family and friends come over and we make our own margaritas based on the holiday.

Just this Thanksgiving my father was here from Congo, so we had a really amazing time together. It was the first Thanksgiving in 11 years.

Doesn’t matter what the holiday, anytime I can gather with family and hangout and catch up. There is no better tradition in my opinion.

The white elephant exchange at Christmas. Because nobody knows what they will get – it may be a fun gift, a great gift or something you have been wanting. It’s a huge surprise – I love surprises!

We go to church and come back the next day and have a big family reunion with the members of the church, then we all cook together, barbecue style, and then we all eat together.
