A Southern Girls Guide to Christmas Traditions

My favorite holiday post form 2014!

Depending on where you live in our great country you celebrate the holidays with different traditions. I am always looking to find new and fun things to do with my family for the holidays. To help me with this the ladies of Southern Girl Blogging Community wanted to share a couple of the best Christmas traditions we have in the South.

Food is BIG during the holidays. Whether it is the cookies you bake or the drinks you make, here are some awesome Christmas traditions from great Southern Bloggers

Over at A Mindful Mom Kristen shares her Easy and Festive Christmas Eats. With things like Santa pancakes and Peanut Butter Reindeer treats, how can you go wrong!

For the dinner course, Sarah Sofia Productions shared her Mama’s Cranberry and Apple Dish: A Thanksgiving and Christmas Tradition. We used this in our house this Thanksgiving and it was AMAZING!

Every party needs more than just egg nog, how about a Hot Chocolate Bar! Over at My Big Fat Happy Life, Paris shared Assembling a Hot Chocolate Bar. This will be a huge hit at our New Year’s Eve Party this year.

Lastly, if you like chocolate but are looking for something a little different? What about Mocha Punch – It’s a family Tradition over at An Allie Event. It is requested for breakfast every Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. This sounds like the perfect start to the day to me, especially if the kids are waking you up at 5am to see if Santa has come.

Along with all of this glorious southern food comes awesome parities, beautiful décor and everything else!

The holidays are all about filling your home with wonderful fragrance. I will be the first to admit I have never seen these before but I am now dying to try these amazing Orange and Clove Pomanders. They are brought to us by Chelsea at Not a Passing Fancy. The tradition was passed down from her mom and grandmother, I can imagine the smell just reading this post and bonus, they are really pretty!

Sarah Sofia Productions is all about parities and decor. This Inspiration for the Holiday Season: Santa Claus is Coming to Town Party is perfect for kids from 1 to 92. She also takes us around her beautiful home with Inspiration for the Holiday Season: Trimming the tree and Christmas Decor and Decor and Tradition. I dream about my halls decked like this every year.

On Run to Radiance, Tania takes us on a Christmas Traditions Blog Tour. She shares probably the most awesome and unique Christmas tradition of them all. Check it out!

Lastly, your very own MOMentous Moms share the Christmas traditions Momentous Moms Style we have each and every year. It is a wonderful hodgepodge of Yule tide cheer and some traditions which I am sure you are familiar with.

So, if you want to add a bit of Southern Girls sass to your Christmas Traditions check out these amazing posts.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

  3. I’m in Florida and our tradition is a mixture of my husbands family and then my polish/german traditions. We usually eat the same thing on Christmas Day as we do on thanksgiving.
