I don't have lots of holiday favorites.
But there are some traditions that I hold dear.
1. lighting the menorah
My poor little menorah is all covered with wax, now that the eight nights of Chanukah are over. DH found some colorful, striped candles - they were so pretty. I'll have to look for them again next year!
2. watching the Nutcracker
My mom used to take my sister and me to Lincoln Center every year when we were kids, to watch the Nutcracker ballet. It was beautiful. I was always amazed how the tree grew bigger and bigger! Now I see multiple ballets on the Ovation Channel! I just love the traditional ones.
3. getting together with family
The family, at least those who are here in Oklahoma, get together around the holidays. Every Sunday my mom cooks dinner for the family (meals have always been a special time for us). It's a treat for me to sit around the dinner table with her and BB when I visit. And of course we exchange presents for the holidays.
4. buying a Hallmark ornament
I've always wanted to collect Christmas ornaments but didn't have any reason to until I got married. My DH isn't religious but he likes to decorate the house. And I like to get one special ornament to mark each year. We have a collection now!
