Holiday Giveaway: Celebrate Family Traditions with Hickory Farms

My family has many traditions, but not many go back as far as the holiday tradition of serving Hickory Farms. As far back as I can remember when I was a kid, the whole family got excited when mom served up our Hickory Farms favorites on Christmas day. I have carried on that same tradition with my own family. There’s nothing quite like noshing on some Summer Sausage and Farmhouse Cheddar in afternoon, after everyone has finished opening their gifts.

    Our favorite tradition is going to church on Christmas Eve and singing Silent Night while everyone is holding a candle – it is magical!

  2. Marti Parks says

    Our favorite tradition is getting up before dawn and making coffee and gathering in the living room to see what Santa brought. Even though my son is 22 years old we still check for gifts from Santa. 😉

  4. Jennifer Mae Hiles says

    On the Saturday after Thanksgiving we take the whole day to put up decorations, write our Christmas lists and bake cookies. It’s a great family day.

  5. Marie says

    On Christmas Eve we pack up hot chocolate and cookies and wear PJ’s and go for a drive to see the Christmas lights! The kids love it!

  6. Christy says

    Well, one of mine is staying up till midnight on New Years. We make lots of food, and toast the New Year in with Sparkling Cider

  7. Cindy Merrill says

    I remember making molasses popcorn balls when I was growing up- so I can’t WAIT for my Grandkids to visit this year- never mind the mess: Just seeing their smiles while they’re munching will be worth the effort.

  8. Mary Dailey says

    We make sure we go all over town to see the Christmas lights. We eat out and then take a ride, especially in one area where they actually compete to see who can have the most lights! It’s so much fun!

  9. Dena S. says

    What is your family’s favorite holiday tradition? eating hickory farms while watching holiday movies. I like crackers with fancy mustard, some sausage and cheese.

  10. says

    The women and older kids get together the Sunday before Christmas and bake lots of cookies and candies. We then divide them into trays to give to friends and loved ones. Thanks.

  11. Debbie Welchert says

    We live in a small town so we love going into the city and driving around and looking at Christmas lights with the whole family. It’s so much fun and we really love doing it.

  12. Karen d says

    My tradition is to dress up as Santa on Christmas Eve to visit the homes of my grandchildren and the children I care for to lave gifts as they spy on me from a distance.

  15. Bo says

    We decorate the tree together – every trip we take, we buy an ornament and while decorating the tree we reminisce on the trips!

  16. Colleen says

    After we open presents on Christmas morning, we eat waffles with strawberries and vanilla ice cream. And warm syrup. It’s such a treat and has become so synonymous with Christmas in our family. And as my brothers and I have each grown up, gotten married, and had kids of our own, this has become a tradition that the kids just love (who wouldn’t love to have ice cream for breakfast? :-) ).

  17. courtney hennagir says

    we always go to the arboretum to see the christmas lights in the gardens and then go home and get warm by snuggling up together and watching a movie.

  18. Dominique says

    We do a massive amount of holiday baking every Christmas. Every Christmas morning I make Coquito (a Puerto Rican style egg nog) and serve it in our special little Christmas mugs to have while we open our presents. And my dad’s family had their own little tradition of having Snowballs with egg nog on Christmas while watching whatever was the designated Christmas movie of that particular year; and he passed that on to us. The snowballs are those little balls of vanilla ice cream, I think they’re dipped in white chocolate or some sort of icing, and then rolled in coconut. They come in a holiday box of 6 I think, with little red candles. And it’s just not Christmas without my mom’s Christmas Surprise (dessert- a lot of junk is eaten around the holidays in my family lol). (Nikki Marie on rafflecopter)

  19. Lisa Burke Cook says

    On the Saturday after Thanksgiving we go to the Christmas tree farm and pick and cut down our tree and decorated it and the house as we drink Egg nogg and eat homemade cookies.

  20. Sue Hull says

    My daughter and her boyfriend help me put up all my Christmas lights the first wkend of Dec. I’m getting more this yr so I’ll have more to put up outside and inside. We all go to my mom’s house on Christmas morning for breakfast and gifts. It’s always a great Christmas being with my family. Thank you for the yummy giveaway! :)

  21. krista grandstaff says

  24. says

    Going out to look at the lights on Christmas eve, Santa makes an extra (early) visit while we’re out and leaves pjs, blankies, slippers, a movie, a game and a HF set so we have our munchies which we serve with some of our own homemade goodies. :)

  25. says

    Every year, we make an ornament for the grandma’s using a pic of the kids. That way they have a new ornament every year, documenting the growth from the last year!

    I would have to say it would be decorating the tree together on Christmas Eve and then opening 1 present from a family member that night! They think they are rebels!! LOL

  27. Annette Robertson (Paredes) says

    We open one gift every eve and it is a pair of Christmas pjs. Then we sip hot cocoa and read Twas the Night before Christmas to the kids.
