What special holiday traditions are
you looking forward to the most?
“This is the first Christmas w/o my Dad, who died at age 95 1/2 this past January, so we’re looking forward to a large gathering on the 25th. The tradition is for baking Stollen, a German Christmas bread that we have at brunch. We make the dough the night before and let it rise overnight. Then we get up early and bake the loaves, to go along with the rest of the brunch: scrambled eggs w/mushrooms and herbs, fruit cup, hot chocolate and really good coffee. This year we’re expecting at least fifteen people for brunch, perhaps a few more, if a couple of cousins can make it. It’s going to be a very nice day.” – Nina Hartley
“Every Holiday season I enjoy ‘Peacock Lane’, which is a tour of house that have gone all out for the holiday season with decorations and lights. Plus every Christmas Eve, my chosen family and I get all dolled in an evening gown, enjoy an elegant dinner, and go to ‘The Nutcracker’. We end the night with opening one present and having egg nog cocktails or hot toddies.” – Sophia St. James
“Living in San Francisco, our holidays are in the Summer (Pride and Folsom Street Fair). A recent midwinter tradition, and it’s Santa focused, is going to Marlena’s bar in Hayes Valley, near Civic Center in SF. Marlena is one of the, how do you say this politely… senior Drag Queen’s in the area. She decorates the bar in December with countless Santa dolls and ornaments. And by countless, I mean it. The bar tender last week said they added 300 more this year and I have no idea where they can put more. But it always gets me in the Christmas spirit.” – Ian Sparks
“The annual Angel’s Christmas party for the kids in my pueblo in Mexico! This year we have 80 kids coming to the party. It makes me so happy to be able to give them something to remember every year. I am a very fortunate person and to be able to share and see the joy, well I cannot put in words. This year we have Santa, a clown and an elf. Happy Holidays to everyone and I hope the New Year brings you amazing happiness.” – Buck Angel
“Playing the Beatles Monopoly Game with some of my family. Instead of money, the banker deals Love; instead of properties, there are concerts; and the playing pieces are things like Maxwell’s Silver Hammer. When I play, I am the Walrus, coocoo ca choo!” – Jiz Lee
“Sweet potato curry latkes, Channukah stockings (filled by Channukah Goblins), decorating our holiday shrubbery and seeing a new movie on Christmas day while everyone else is opening presents!” – Shanna Katz
“The tradition I’m looking forward to most is simple: time set aside to visit my family. I can’t make any excuses because no one shoots porn on Christmas. I miss my family and really just want to spend some time with them.” – Danny Wylde
“I look forward to enjoying a quiet, reflective solstice and spending time with my family over Christmas.” – Tobi Hill-Meyer
“The special holiday traditions are I am looking forward to the most are spending time with my family, decorating, and most of all giving gifts. I try to be a thoughtful gift giver, and my favorite part of gift giving is watching the recipient open it. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and amazing 2012.” – April Flores
“Being with super fun cousins – lots of them! – for a couple of days…lots of laughter, great food, and all around silliness. What a great departure from all the stuff we have to deal with in our regular work-a-day lives!” – Candida Royalle
“My partner and I just moved in together and we are excited to create a whole new set of holiday traditions just for us, including the most important of all – Christmas Sex, complete with x-mas slow jams and themed outfits. Oh yeah, we are keeping the birth of Christ classy!” – JD
“Since moving to Philadelphia from Florida, my boyfriend and I have started the tradition of spending Christmas day in our pajamas. While we love and miss our families, spending Christmas day in the comfiest way possible is awesome! We take it slow, make lots of food and just enjoy each other all day long. Best tradition EVER!” – Ginger
