We asked, you answered! Check out these wonderful Christmas traditions from our Bridgeway Academy parents and students!

I live in the desert and there is this huge cactus garden outside of a chocolate factory. Every Christmas they light up the cactus garden with thousands of lights. My family goes to walk through it and we get some chocolate. It’s called Ethel M chocolate factory. This year I’m waiting for my big sister to come home on Thursday so we can go. Maddy K

We all get dressed in our pajamas, take our blankets and favorite stuffed animal, make hot chocolate, and drive around and look at all the pretty Christmas lights on Christmas Eve. Michele P.

We are starting a new tradition this year… Everyone gets to open a gift on Christmas Eve, that includes pajamas and a favorite snack. Then later we’ll also receive a book and a movie. Cara S.

Instead of cookies, Santa gets cake. It’s my second child’s birthday on Christmas Eve, so we started that 15 years ago. Jamie S.

We celebrate a traditional Thanksgiving with extended family which we love- just not the menu.Christmas is just the four of us. Our tradition is dining on NY strips, baked potatoes, and asparagus. Deborah G.
