As Thanksgiving retreats into the rearview mirror, and we barrel toward Christmas and Hanukkah, and then the New Year, I want to hear all about your favorite holiday traditions — does your family make a specific craft every holiday season? Do you cook one specific dessert every year? Do you go to a latke party where guests judge who’s made the best batch? (I know someone who does this.) Is one of you making one of those fruit cakes that percolates in a closet for a year? Do you buy hilarious Christmas ornaments on vacation? Does someone you know hold a traditionally goofy (or wild!) holiday party? Do you chuck it all and go to an all-inclusive resort until the new year? Do you do something unusual every holiday season — like annually throw out all your undies and buy new ones, or something? Tell us everything.
