christmas traditions

Is it too early to post about Christmas?

My daughter is just over four and I am ready to start her with the family food traditions. I want her to be a part of preparing the goodies. She loves to be in the kitchen. We have great fun together. Her biggest punishment is "get out of mommy's kitchen."
My sister and I have loads of food memories from Granny's house during our childhood. Granny always had Chex mix, peppermint bark, Toll House cookies, Cherry-coconut bars. The best was Christmas morning brunch, a tradition we have continued after Granny's passing.
What do you and yours do for the holidays? What goodies do you keep in the house that would normally be off-limits? What are the last things you want to eat before ringing in the New Year?
