Happy first day of December! Can you believe it’s already the last month of 2016? I wanted to end this year with a bang so I’m beyond excited to announce that starting today, I’ll be kicking off the first official day of the 12 DAYS of CHRIS-elle! (See what I did there?)

From December 1st-12th, I’ll be posting a blog post every day featuring some of my favorite brands and highlighting my favorite goodies for the holidays. The coolest part? At the end of the 12 Days of CHRIS-elle, one lucky reader will win all of my favorites from each of the 12 days! To enter, simply leave a comment on each of the 12 blog posts to win!

So, it’s official. I’m completely obsessed with Rexy. I mean, how adorable is this dino sweater and bag from Coach? My everyday style is generally more sleek and refined, but every once in a while you need to have a little fun, right? And what’s more fun than wearing a playful graphic sweater during the holidays? Side note: I would say that this look (bow and all!) is completely inspired by my little Clo-Clo! It has the perfect little punch of whimsy, just in time for all of the holiday festivities. Not only is this sweater super soft and cozy but something about bringing out your inner child fits right into this time of year. But, if having Rexy on your sweater is too much, try adding a playful charm or two to your accessories! It’s an easy way to introduce it into your wardrobe. 

So, what do you think? Would you guys rock this bag? It’s the first giveaway item for the 12 Days! Thanks to our partnership with Coach, we were able to make a generous donation to the amazing Baby2Baby! PS: check out Day 2 HERE!

  • Leslie says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is opening presents on Christmas day! #12DaysGiveaway

  • Elizabeth S says:

    My mother is in charge of cooking Christmas Eve and she always picks a recipe that she’s never tried before. The problem is she always underestimates how long the meal will take to cook! One year she tried lamb chop. Another year it was prime rib. It’s possible this year’s main course will be deep fried turkey. I don’t even want to begin thinking of ways in which that could go wrong. Some years we haven’t sat down so eat until 10 or 11 o’clock. The family, of course, has no trouble keeping occupied as long as the champagne is flowing. We’re busy playing charades and secretly opening gifts before dinner instead of waiting until we’re all siting around the tree. I guess my favorite tradition is the predictable chaos of it all. People running around the house hungry (and drinking and empty stomachs)….not one person thinks to take photos…..lack of sleep, because obviously we’re up early the next day for more presents….it’s stressful and pandemonium and crazy and fun and so worth it all in the end…..

  • Jae says:

    OH, can’t forget to mention the New Year’s bow to the parents. What comes after that is too sweet to miss: money envelops!

  • Jae says:

    My family’s traditional each year is a yummy dinner by mama Suh on Christmas Day, then sharing gifts while eating cake and desserts. A photo-op is a must.

    Gathering by the foot of the tree!

  • Ngoc says:

    Family gathering and eating none stop.

  • Rosaura says:

    Another of my fav holiday tradition is also the gift giving. More of choosing a gift for each of my family members. Funny items, things they really need or just cool additions they can use. We are really blessed we can celebrate the holidays like this <3

    My favorite holiday tradition is cooking special meals with my grandmother that we only make during the holiday season. Since we only eat these special dishes during this time, the time we wait in the rest of the year is worth it. <3

  • Jessica H. says:

    My favorite holiday tradition was to gather at my grandmother’s house, meeting every single one of the extended family members including those who live overseas. Too bad I missed this tradition in the past 4 years because I moved to USA (I was born and grow up in Indonesia). So I’m looking forward til the day I can gather with the whole extended family again!

    #12daysofgiveaways

  • Natalie says:

    My favorite tradition is gathering at grandma’s house. Some of us live a little far from home and the holidays are the few times when everyone come together. I believe the favorite of it all is the prepping and cooking with grandma overlooking everyone and calling out what they’re doing wrong in the kitchen lol.

  • Rachel says:

    Spending time with family, eating all the time, and opening gifts!

  • Tania Dawood says:

    My favorite christmas tradition is having a fresh real christmas tree, growing up we would always have a real christmas tree that smell, brings back so many memories. I am a single mom of three teens girls and we have started our very own christmas tradition. we swop gifts the night before christmas, I cook a big dinner and desert and they usually end up making me laugh until I cry. My girls bring me so much joy and it is because of them and their support that I was able to finally walk away from my bad marriage. My girls give me the strength to never lose hope as a single mom and to never give up. They give my life meaning. Love your snaps and love Clo Clo she is so cute!!!

    Hi Chriselle
    Aww I love that dino sweater and clutch on you! I just came to Sacramento from Vietnam just months ago so I really haven’t gotten any fun sweaters like that, I should probably go look around.
    Our country’s tradition unfortunately doesn’t includes Christmas 🙁 But every year, my mom would put up a tree with me for some ‘festive vibes’ as she called it :))) This year would be the first year for me to experience a ‘real’ Christmas with my host family, I’m really looking forward to it ~ ♡

  • Cass tang says:

    My fave Xmas tradition is pulling the crackers at the dinner table. Ain’t no party without a good crackin’ 😀

  • My favorite holiday tradition is definitely “the wishing tree”. 🌲☃️❄️ It started sometime around third grade. The night before Christmas, I’d lay on the ground in front of the Christmas tree and make a wish. It started out super simple at first, “Santa please please please can I have the Barbie doll that swims with dolphins and comes with two little dolphin friends.” (Yes, that was actually a thing 😬 and yes, I did really want it 😂). But as I got older my wishes would get a lot deeper. “Please can Jake text me today.” ❤️ or “Can you help me get straight A’s next semester.” 👼🏼🙏🏻
    I’m not sure why because I’m old enough to know that Santa 🎅🏼 isn’t coming to visit me anymore but to this day I’ll still leave a wish under the Christmas tree just in case because traditions are traditions 🎄 🙏🏻🎅🏼❄️☃️ (Hopefully I’ll be able to do this with my own family in the future 👶🏼👸🏼👱🏻👧🏼👦🏼).

  • maria chen says:

    Secret santa.. although it’s not a tradition fo my family but I always hope to do it one day!

  • Leslie says:

    A family tradition for us is to make tamelas every Christmas. However, something that I started new with my son is to make a ginger bread house and bake cookies during Christmas Eve. This is something I didn’t do with my family, so I feel that starting new traditions with my son is great.

  • Andrea Nguyen says:

    It has to be decorating the Christmas tree. When we were little my sister and I used to always fight to see who gets to put the star on top of the tree. It’s a must have tradition!!!

  • Aiza Manalaysay says:

    One of the Holiday tradition we do is every new yrs eve our family have to be at home, ‘y mom would light incense, would turn all the lights on, we would make all kinds of noises (like sings or bang the doors 😊) we would coins on the table and have 12 kinds of round fruits on our dining table. It says it brings good luck to the family.

  • Aiza Manalaysay says:

    The best Christmas gift I’ve ever received is my daughter. I think being a mom is the best present you’ll ever get. It’s a gift from God. Because he entrusted you a precious baby, a responsibility that he knows you are capable of fulfilling. Her name is Blaire ☺️

    I think the best gift would be when our whole family gets together for Christmas and New Years. Our close family fly inter state to be able to spend time together with us. I honestly look forward to it every year it’s so fun when all of us are together sharing everything over hot chocolate and tea in the back patio.

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and new year ! Much love xo

    • Alicia J says:

      Our holiday tradition is when we have family coming to over from inter state every year to spend time with us for Christmas and New Years !

  • MilaM says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is on Christmas Eve. My Italian family makes the feast of the seven fishes, in which you have to serve seven fishes in one way or another for good luck in the New Year, and we also make respellis. They are essentially fried potato bread, and it is such a fun holiday surrounded by my family whom I adore.

  • Shuyu Cao says:

    A favorite holiday tradition is calling the family back in China. I grew up with just my parents here so I’m always lonely and I am thankful for the moments I have with the family back home, even for just a telephone call. #12DaysGiveaway

  • Sarah Traurig says:

    This is actually a new tradition that I have started in the last couple years. I always noticed how stressed out my mom would be around christmas time preparing the family meals so early on I started helping out my mom in every way I could in the kitchen. In the recent years, I have taken the task upon myself to prepare our christmas dinner. This way I can finally give my mom the chance to enjoy christmas to the fullest without the stress and I also get to explore my second passion (cooking after fashion) by trying new recipes for my Family to enjoy. Every year for the past 5 years I have cooked these dinners and have enjoyed how my entire family sits together filling the house with joy and full bellies.

  • Vanessa Loh says:

    One of my most favourite christmas traditions is to put up christmas trees and decorate it with my siblings. I have a lot of fun every year as we rarely spend time together due to work and etc, therefore every moment spent putting up lights and decorations together is really meaningful and I enjoy it really much!

  • Slavka says:

    Light up the Advent candles every Sunday.. candles are 4 in total..

  • Joanne says:

    Growing up my brother and I would sleep under the twinkling lights of our Christmas tree Christmas eve’s eve. Then on Christmas Eve we’d stay up until midnight and open up our presents. Was fun staying past bedtime, hanging out, watching movies.

  • Brandy C says:

    Hi Chriselle!

    My favorite holiday tradition is quite a “traditional” one, but I just love it when my extended family gather on Christmas Eve to welcome Christmas together. It’s not often when the whole family gets together, but when we do, we forget all the bickering throughout the year and have a great time together!

  • Jeana Lim says:

    Attending our candlelit Christmas Eve service and watching all the plays and cantata that everyone has been preparing for. I enjoy watching my sons holding the candlestick and the luminescent of their faces as they are mesmerized by watching the light flicker.

    Yes. I love solid bags with quirky details!

    *It’s part of my religion as a Catholic to go to Church on the 24th (before midnight). Everyone in the community gathers, songs completely fill our small church and the priest’s sermon about Christmas. The whole vibe just feels, I don’t how how to describe it, but it’s really heart-warming.

    Since going up in a Asian household, I’ve never really had a Christmas tradition except just going to church. But ever since I met my boyfriend who’s Spanish, his family is big on Christmas. The part I enjoyed the most is waking up early, still I’m pyjamas and exchanging gifts. Seeing everyone so happy is amazing.

  • Domitille says:

    I think I love the Dino sweater…

    My favorite tradition during Christmas is when we all my family are around the piano, me playing violon are all singing all traditional Christmas songs. It is always good memories and a sweet time together. And after we remember that finally all people got happy and everyone was here. 👼

  • Geena says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is to decorate to Christmas Tree. I am usually doing this with my dad, my cats are jumping all around decorations, the music is playing and my dad is joking like he always do. My mother and sister are always running away because they hate doing it, but i love it. I can be closer to my dad more that 1 day of the year (we are that type of people who decorate Chistmas Tree in the actual Christmas). Ufortunately, in this year we won’t have Christmas Tree… my mum wants to create home-made “Tree” using a wodden house and some figures and lamps.

    Chriselle you are my idol and i want to be as beauty as you…!

    IDK why but is says to me that i already wrote this comment

  • I love that our family always gathers together on Christmas Eve night, and have a simple wine or beer night with a couple of nibbles. Then on Christmas Day, we all just help each other cook different dishes in a small kitchen and enjoy each other’s company. It’s awesome the our friends come over too:) it’s so fun hosting and preparing together as a family to bless others with food and a great time😎

  • Colette says:

    Reading Christmas stories on Christmas Eve.

  • Alexa says:

    My family has many holiday traditions, but my favorite is probably making omelettes for breakfast and watching A Christmas Story all day on Christmas when it airs 24/7. We’ve done it since I was little so the movie always makes me think of my family, and the smell of bacon reminds me of Christmas morning haha. 🙂

    Favorite holiday tradition is our annual secret Santa exchange. Not for the gift giving but it’s fun to see the thought and care each person put into the gift for our person. We draw names after Thanksgiving dinner and we get together around Christmas for the exchange. This year, since I’ve gotten married and we moved, this will be my first year away from my family so we’re doing it via FaceTime for the exchange. I’m excited for the change!

  • Mariana says:

    My family does this weird thing where we eat a Christmas lunch/dinner on December 24th, we are usually done eating pretty early so we spend the rest of the evening together. We rarely spend time together so even if it’s playing with the dogs, watching a movie or simply talking this is a once-a-year thing that I’ll always cherish.

  • Miranda says:

    When I was a wee thing, the Christmas tree decorating party for sure! We didn’t normally do “parties” for the family, but this was one that stuck (and I have a hunch it was because it was one of the few times we were able to pig out on chips and eggnog). Now? The fact that my mum still sends me advent calendars through the postman.

    It’s always a nice and fun time especially when you can see the beautiful decorated tree when you finish 🙂

  • Ananda Wattimena says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is getting together with my dad’s side of the family 😊

  • Would be such a fun item to have in the wardrobe!

    Where I come from we celebrate Christmas eve, on the 24th, not Chsritmas morning. My favourite tradition is probably during the afternoon on the 24th, where my cousins and I are decorating the tree, watching Disney’s Christmas Show, and eating christmas sweets. It’s always such a great time!

  • Kim says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is staying up until midnight on Christmas Eve, and opening presents right at midnight. The best part is getting to spend time with my family while we wait up for the clock to strike midnight. The night usually consists of lots and lots of board games, and maybe alcohol. 😉

  • Saerom says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is going to this street near my hometown where EVERY SINGLE house participates in Christmas lighting. Every year there is a community competition and we go over to vote for the best houses. And every year, my family go and point out what the houses added or changed this year.

  • Imola says:

    My fav tradition is baking the same cookies with my mum every year 🙂

  • Laurmi Faye says:

    My favorite tradition is having a pajama breakfast/brunch party with my family and friends on Christmas day! We would have tons of food, play games, and somehow we would always end up doing karaoke. Like an old saying (well for my family anyways), “It ain’t a party without karaoke.”

  • Ana Maria says:

    Hi Chriselle,
    You’re an amazing source of inspiration, so happy that I found your blog. For me, holidays are the family time and Christmas is the most important day in all year. I feel like December in itself is the month of giving joy and love to all the people that we have in our lives. I wish you happy holidays!

    Kind regards,
    Ana Maria

  • Prisilla Cope says:

    Decorating for the Christmas season after Thanksgiving. Singing Christmas Carols….participating in Posadas…..drinking hot cocoa …eating soup…fresh pinto beans with real butter… (like my great-grandma used to make)…and donating blankets to my daughters school….so many things….grateful for. Thank you.

  • Jenny says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is one my dad started. We fill each other’s stockings with gag gifts/inside jokes. It’s a blast coming up with new and creative ideas each year, and always so much fun seeing what’s inside each of our stockings every year.

  • annie says:

    Very cool zip bag, reminds me of the cartoon The Land Before Time. I love that movie growing up! We watch a movie every Christmas after a big feast and this was one of them. More recently we’re watched the Lord of the Rings Triliogy and then the Harry Potter series. We’ve got some great families memories around movies and Christmas.

  • Rajaa says:

    Love this!! My favorite thing about the holiday season is the simple joy of being surrounded by the people you love. Even if we aren’t doing anything particularly special, just being in their presence is a treat in itself. Hope everyone has a happy holiday!

  • Anny says:

    My favorite tradition is my family’s annual banquet.

  • Stephanie H says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is putting up the Christmas tree and ornaments with my family and decorating the house! It’s become even more meaningful now that I live in a different state, and I always look forward to go home for the holidays.

  • KimberlyWong says:

    Hey Chriselle!!

    My favourite holiday tradition would be giving. Every end of the year, my family would tidy up our wardrobes. We’ll clear out the clothes that are out-sized and don’t normally wear. We put them in a bag and give them away to the homeless and orphanages. You’ll see their faces light up and it makes you happier. It’s the act of giving that we love doing for the holiday. It doesn’t have to cost anything. It can be bags you don’t use anymore, lending a helping hand to the elderly, be a listening ear to those that are heartbroken or just simply giving hugs to those around you. I believed that only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have. For it is more blessed to give than to receive.

    Love,
    Kim <3

  • Ann says:

  • Cynthia Z says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is Secret Santa! We just started doing this after a few of us graduated from college and this is the perfect way for my broke siblings and I to celebrate without digging into our savings. We cap the limit as well so we don’t overspend no matter who we get!

    Oooh maybe a mother-daughter matching outfit idea? Hehehe sorry.

    Hmm I have a very small family and it’s never quite peaceful. However, in some way, a Christmas miracle if you will, my siblings cease their cold war and all is well.
    It’s not what one would usually think of as a tradition, but then again I doubt anyone has a family as crazy as mine. 😉

  • Dieu says:

    Dear Chriselle,
    In this season we don’t celebrate Christmas because in our religion we don’t celebrate them. But in our school every Christmas season we decorate our room with different themes of Christmas.This year we decorated our room with the regular Red-Green Christmas theme and it was so fun because all of the materials we used were indigenous and everything was recycled. Decorating is my favorite tradition because the fun and enjoyment decorating with your friends and classmates is so amazing!

    xoxo,
    Nurul

  • Christina says:

    I once read, “The Best Gift..is An Anonymous Gift”. I found out that this is true ! My daughter and I leave ‘anonymous elf gifts’ on friends & neighbors doorsteps. We leave chocolates, goodies, and other small treasures at their door….then make a get-away! We crack up laughing & would make horrible burglars !

  • Rachel Proto says:

    Making Arancini- Italian rice balls with my family!

    I love visiting our local ice skating rink in the winter and taking my nieces and nephews with me!! I also love walking through neighborhoods with all the crazy Christmas decorations!

  • Mariel says:

    My favorite thing about the holidays is having family over. Most of us live in the same state, but the ones that don’t always come, we all get together and celebrate those amazing days, we cherish family and union and that for us is the most important thing!
    Also one of my favorite traditions is gathering food, clothes and other stuff for people who don’t have shelter, we usually go to general hospitals where you can find homeless people but also, people who ended up spending the holidays in a hospital with a sick loved one. It’s so special to bring them food, for some their first of the day, and clothes that help minimize the cold, there was this girl once who was wearing sandals on a crazy cold day, luckily I had some socks with me for her.

  • Vuyiswa says:

    Well… I’m actually from South Africa and so our Christmas traditions are a little different to the Cozy, winter traditional Christmas that many Americans have. When it’s Christmas in South Africa, it’s always very hot and we all go to the beach and have a braai (Or as you would call it… a Barbeque) and dance and listen to music under the night skies. That is definitely my favorite tradition.

  • Jane Pham says:

Family, togetherness, and a love towards everyone this holiday season.

  • Chelsey K says:

    Baking cookies will always be my favorite Christmas tradition. It’s harder to get everyone together to do it, now that three of my sisters are married and two of them have a child of their own, but it’s something we look forward to as soon as winter begins. This year was the first year my oldest niece was able to join us for baking and decorating, and it was so much fun to have all seven of us in the kitchen together for a day. I’m pretty sure my niece was more excited about “coloring” the cookies with sprinkles than she was eating them afterward!

  • Etta says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is definitely where all my family members gather at our house on Christmas day to pass out Christmas presents. We have everyone’s presents gathered under the Christmas tree then we call out each present’s name and have my little cousins run around passing the present to the family memeber the present is meant for. There are always so much laughters and jokes exchange throughout this session. I love it how its a time where my entire family gathers together for this special event.

I love sushi so I would have that, my parents would have samgyupsal, and my brother would have everything (because he’ll eat anything). I guess that would be my favorite tradition 🙂

  • Kate says:

    Favorite holiday tradition: volunteering at a nursing home xmas morning. My family used to go visit a nursing home and sing carols and do crafts with all of the people who lived there on the morning of xmas. Only a few of them had anyone come visit them and they sang along with us and talked with us for a couple hours. We’d always bring family friends with us too and share the love and experience. Truly one of my favorite experiences for the holidays, It really helps to bring out the spirit of the season, much like being light of heart and playful. I think that child-like heart and attitude is exactly what we need during these times – which is why these dino goodies are especially festive and fun!

I love spending the holidays with my in-laws, but I’m a little disappointed that they have a fake tree with no ornaments. Even though my husband and I live in an apartment too small for a tree, I’ve started collecting ornaments so I can one day share many family stories with our children.

  • Cristina says:

    I grew up opening Christmas presents on the very first hour of the new year. Those where our Christmas and new year presents. I loved it, i remember as a child i would try to stay awake till midnight so i can get my present from Santa. Of course i knew that they were presents from my parents and not actually santa, i used to get a bsg of chocolate every time. We were so poor so it was all they could afford. Its such a touching tradition for me. I hope i can carry it on in my family.

    We don’t have a specific holiday tradition, but my sister, brother and I are always away from home due to school or work so it’s always difficult to visit home at the same time and rare for all members of the family to be at home at once.

    My favorite holiday tradition is waking up on Christmas Day to watch ‘A Christmas Story’ after a night of being with family (we’re a big one). Just cuddled up in my blanket in PJs with a hot chocolate in hand with my family in the living room.

  • Carol says:

    We always have our big holiday dinner and open presents on Christmas Eve, when it’s dark out and the lights look so pretty. This way my husband and I have Christmas Day free though and our tradition is to spend it in our pajamas watching movies and eating snacks. It’s my favorite day of the whole year!

  • Susana Gamez says:

    Yayyyyy Dino bag is so cool, i want it 🙂

  • Roseanne says:

    My favorite Holiday tradition is being able to spend time with my family at my cousin’s house. Everyone is always busy with working, etc. and the Holidays is pretty much the only time we’re all off of work and can really spend quality time with one another so it’s always great knowing that we’ll be spending time with one another on Christmas Eve through Christmas Day. We are able to bring food and have a feast, play fun games, and just enjoying one another’s company. Definitely a Holiday tradition I look forward to each year!

  • Laura says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is to eat Pandoro – a Christmas speciality of northern Italy and so my home land – with all my dearest!

  • Hristina Stoimenovska says:

    I’m from Macedonia so we celebrate Christmas on January 7th (like the Russians). My favorite tradition is the bread with the penny ( gold or silver ). On Christmas Eve (January 6th) we gather all family and we break the bread into pieces, the one who found the penny is believed that will be the luckiest one.

  • Lorraine Y. says:

    My favourite holiday tradition has got to be decorating the house according to different festivities. We have gone from being really traditional with the decorations to incorporating elements that are more chic throughout the years. As our family went through rough patches for the past few years, we stopped decorating the house all together because no one had the mood to do so. So glad to say that we’re finally resuming this tradition this year, as it meant that we have persevered through difficult times and can now celebrate the joyful occasions together as a stronger family ❤️ xxx

  • Barbara says:

    My favourite tradition is to make traditional biscuits, called Bretele, with my mother – we usually offer them to our family and friends afterwards!

    Merry Christmas!

  • Etta says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is watching The Nightmare Before Christmas every Christmas eve with my sister whilst drinking tea and eating gingerbread!! Merry Christmas Chriselle xx

    Hello~ My favorite holiday tradition is making sure I buy what I need on Black Friday! I also love watching the snow fall by the window with a warm Tibetan Tea and playing Christmas carol in the background. Oh one more thing, I love doing Secret Santa with my friends. Christmas is a wonderful holiday. Although my family doesn’t celebrate Christmas holiday, for some reason, seeing beautiful decors and Christmas tree makes me happy!

    “I don’t think I can take that kind of rejection” .

  • Katrina says:

    The dino sweater and bag are adorable! My favorite tradition is our Christmas morning stocking hunt. Since I was around 5, our parents had us running around the house gathering clues to where our stocking were hidden, and despite the fact that my sister and I are now in our 20’s, we’re still spending Christmas morning searching and decoding.

  • Teresa says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is to spend all day at the movie theater on Christmas Day. Since me and my sister are adults now (and the Santa Clais jig is up), we can spend Christmas doing a movie marathon with family 🙂

  • Angela says:

    My favorite Holiday tradition (hmmmm this one’s kind of hard🤔) but I think it’ll be lighting up the Christmas tree and drinking hot cocoa with cookies at night, watching it all lit up😍.

  • Angela says:

    My favorite Christmas song is most probably The Twelve Days of Christmas, it’s fun and genius, and most people don’t know, but that song is actually a coded.

    My favourite holiday traditions all have to do with spending time with my family. My very favourite is going to a tree farm, picking a tree, getting out all the Christmas decorations, and decorating everything! Another are the family vacations since we usually go somewhere after Christmas, sometimes somewhere hot or back to our hometown.

  • Maezie Noval says:

    My favorite Christmas memory is all the times I spent Christmas as a child in California. I’ve lived in Florida for a while and most of my family lives in California. Florida with friends for the holidays is fun, but nothing says Christmas more than being with Family <3.

  • Nicole says:

    Hi Chriselle!

    One of my favourite holiday tradition is on Christmas, we will have all my family members write down what they think will happen either in their own lives or someone else’s within the family and then place them into a jar. We then open it up on the next festive season, and see if it comes true. It’s kind of a fun family activity that we do enjoy. 🙂

  • Eamay says:

    Opening one present on Christmas eve also the embarrassing family pictures.

    Hi Chriselle!
    I love that purse, it’s just the kind of elegant and fun item I would go to!
    I have been a fan of yours for years now and your style just keeps getting better and better, it’s incredible 😍

    Anyway, my favorite tradition is to eat my mom’s ravioli cavolo e funghi on Christmas. We never have a really heavy meal, it’s usually those wonderful ravioli (I’m sure you’re familiar with this kind of pasta 😉), maybe a second course and panettone in the end (a typical Milanese Christmas dessert!)

    Love you,

    Giulia

  • Matty says:

    My favourite holiday tradition is putting up our family Christmas tree. My sister, mom and I play Christmas music and decorate the tree together. It’s been a yearly tradition and this year my husband joined as well!

  • Liza says:

    I’m from Ukraine and here we don’t have so many christmas traditions as in USA, but I do love go to my grandparent’s house for a few days and just sit down near the chimney, without phones and internet and see the snow falling down outside the window. And I do this every year, so can call it my own “tradition” 😉

  • Mavis Guo says:

    Wow Chriselle, this is such a creative idea! I love your look in this post! Enter me pls! <3

    We dont have a real tradition for Christmas. Every year, we are visiting my dad’s mom for Christmas eve and my mom’s mom for the first Christmas day.
    I wish you a wonderful day! 🙂

  • Kris says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is each of us in my family picking out one new ornament for our Christmas tree. We do this every year. As we are decorating the Christmas tree it’s fun & nostalgic to look through and hang each ornament and to remember what happened that year or what my son or daughter was into or what their interests were at that time when picking out that particular ornament. It brings about great conversations while decorating our tree!

  • Vivian says:

    My absolute favorite holiday tradition has to be decorating the Christmas tree with my family. I remember helping my mom from a very young age and when my kid brothers were able to decorate with us too. It’s one of the few things we still do as a family and it’s usually a lot of fun because my very loud family is also very hysterical so we always have a great time.

  • Zuzana says:

    I have so much favourite Holiday memories. I love everything about Christmas time. Best holiday memories are from my childhood when me, my parents and my siblings lived together and prepared Christmas dinner, made Christmas tree, listened carols. Outside was snowing and everithing looked like from the fairy tale. Then we went to church for mass to say thanks for everything, for each other 🙂
    I wish you all great, happy Christmas time 🙂

  • Shradha Ninawe says:

    Every year my friends & I spend one night sleeping on the living room floor under the lighted tree, listening to holiday music. We talk about Christmas, and the previous year and talk about our goals for the coming year. It’s wonderful to have loved ones to share the experience with.

  • Christine says:

    One of my favorite Christmas traditions is having champagne and chocolate log cake with my family.

  • Leslie Nguyen says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is baking up a storm with my mom and aunties on Christmas Eve. I’m talking cakes and sugar cookies, homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream. I love it and look forward to it every year.

  • Khandu says:

    My favourite holiday tradition apart from getting on flight and traveling back home, is actually being with family and having a happy homemade meal prepared by my mother( the best cook) As I spend most of my holiday in Bhutan, and since Bhutan is a Buddhist country, Christmas is not celebrated as grand as in other English countries but we still do have our festives in December that we celebrate. Having said that we do have a happy dinner with happy people around with some delicious cake marking Christmas celebration and then the young ones go out ( clubbing) while the old ones stay home with the little ones (more like attack of grandparents)
    😘😘💕💕
    Lots of love from Bhutan 🇧🇹

  • Valerie Eckert says:

    My family is of German heritage so on christmas we leave a pickle ornament out for Santa to hide in our tree. In the morning the first person to spot the pickle gets to open the first gift!

  • kerry says:

    Hey Chriselle, LOVE THAT JUMPER 🙂
    My favourite Christmas tradition would be opening one present on Christmas eve, which usually is from our grandparents and its a new pair of slippers lol, so we get new slippers every year hehehe

  • TK says:

    All time favorite holiday tradition occurs the day after Thanksgiving. Switch Pandora to the holiday playlist and “dress” up the tree. Once everything is in its place, turn on the Christmas tree lights and pop open a bottle of bubbly!

    Love the whimsical & cute makeup look!

  • Kristine Yvet says:

    I loveeeeeee your outfit!!! It’s so perf and looks so cozy!! My favorite holiday tradition is probably FRIENDMAS! We are all in our pjs and we start off with having brunch together in a fancy restaurant in our pjs, THEN we go back to one of our friends houses and we play games, do our secret santa, and bake/cook with each other. It’s really a lot of fun and it’s so hard nowadays to get people together on a single day because everyone is so busy with college and work. I’m very thankful for my friends, and they are the reason I love coming back home to my hometown!!

  • Debbie says:

    Growing up we didn’t have much. I remember one year I asked for an alarm clock. I know silly right? And can you guess what I got? Yes, and alarm clock. 🙂

  • Payton Ward says:

    One of my most cherished Christmas traditions is decorating the Christmas tree. Every year since I can remember, my parents would give my three sisters and I a little box to unwrap and there would be a new ornament for each one of us. Then we would pull out the old ornaments a name something we were thankful for that reminded us of that said ornament all while watching ” How the Grinch Stole Christmas ” and sipping hot cocoa🎄❤️

    XoXo

  • Ashley says:

    Yay! My favorite holiday tradition is putting up the christmas tree exactly on November 1st. I like having my tree up for at least 2 months before I take it down. I can feel the Christmas spirit once my tree is up.

  • Fanny says:

    My favorite holiday tradition is shopping after thanksgiving.

  • Jennifer Furtado says:

    I found you Chriselle on Instagram originally. Very cool blog, you have created an empire. Pretty awesome. I like the bag but don’t know if I could rock the dinosaur, I would regift it. Lol.

  • Sunny says:

    Awkward, I started with day 3 of 12 days of Chriselle to post lol. So my official 2nd post ever! This is fun 😆 So in my family, a holiday tradition would be at least one good gag gift! I remember one year my brother wrapped a HUGE box and it was super heavy too! And when I opened it, it was just water bottles 😂😂😂 too funny!

  • Milena Berestko says:

    Hello! I come from Poland and my ultimately favorite tradition is eating 12 dishes with my entire family after the firs start lights on December 24th. The food is delicious and those meals are prepared by my mother and me just once a year, which adds a mystical taste and pleasure to eat it with all family members. After that we sing Christmas Carols and go to church at midnight where we pray and sing about the God and his birth. Christmas are definitely my favorite among all holidays.
    I wish everyone happy X-mas!!🎄💋

    Hi Chriselle! Thanks so much for your generosity <3 Feels so blessed to be part of this giveaway. My favourite holiday tradition is shopping for gifts for my friends and family to show our appreciation and love for one another, and having a gift exchange. Also, to have a pot bless with friends and family to bond and keep each other updated with how the year has been.

  • Paola says:

    I have been a Coach fan for years!
    A holiday tradition that I always like and continue to is going to the Giving Tree at the mall and each of us children would select a gift for someone less fortunate. My mother would give us each money and we would select the gifts based on what the recipient asked for. My mother would have a “giving wrapping party with our cousins” and we would decorate and wrap the gifts. Some of the stories were heartbreaking – elderly people requesting socks or simple hygiene items.
