“They built the Christmas decorations and outside decorations too. My favorite decoration is the three candy canes in my yard.”

It is once again that time of year

where loved ones come from far and near

to spread a bit of Christmas cheer

to all the ones that they hold dear.

These kids at Destin Elementary School are excited for the holiday break. Children from each grade shared the favorite holiday tradition that they share with their families and friends every year.

Emilyn Kilpatrick, 6 years old said:

“I like to spend time with the people that come to celebrate Christmas with us. My cousin Grace and my other cousins and my Uncle Mel and Aunt Mona.”

Emma Johnson, 9 years old said.

“In the morning, when nobody is awake, if you are the first one awake and your stocking is full, it’s fair game! We have this tradition because my grandma had nine brothers and sisters and they had to fight for everything, I have a big family.”
