Christmas Traditions

This is a re-post from a couple of years ago, but I think that it is a fun way to start off the season by sharing some of our favorite Christmas Traditions!

  This is a lengthy post, but you have all weekend…right? :) 

One of our Christmas traditions that we do is to donate blankets and quilts to one of our local hospitals.  We start this in November or even before.  I try to make a few quilted quilts and then we all tie several fringed fleece blankets. (click on link for tutorial on how to make these easy fleece blankets)  This year I did a few quilted quilts for our ward Humanitarian Project.

Christmas Candy Roundup

I thought that it would be fun to just do a round-up of some of our family’s favorite Christmas candies!  Some of these recipes go way back and some are pretty new, but they have all become favorites!  

Of course most anything with sugar in it, is a favorite around here! :)

I have fond memories of making candy for the holidays with my mom.  We used to make all kinds of fondant and dip our own chocolates, we would make BIG batches of it and give it away to all of our friends.  I also remember making anise candy, fudge, caramels and peanut brittle, those were great times and we had fun doing it all together!  It still brings back good memories when I make them for my family now.

I don’t dip my own chocolates anymore but I do make fudge and peanut clusters, they are two of my favorite Christmas candies!
