This is not about family traditions, but traditions of YOURS, personally.

Every year, I buy a Garfield day-to-day wall calendar before the new year starts; it makes for a nice accoutrement in my room, and gives me my daily dose of Garfield.

During the Holidays, I conduct my own game show marathon; that's where I watch a bunch of game show episodes for fun. :D

Each year, the first sight of snow as a kid I'd say to myself "the club is officially closed" because as kids, the neighborhood had this boys club that I'd chill at with the neighbors and in the winter it'd be closed. So every year since this first sight of snow, it's the first thing that comes into my mind when I see it falling to the ground. Also for Christmas, every year I'd get a Christmas calender chapstick in my Christmas stocking. The oldest is from like, 1995 (1994 xmas). Well many years pass, I keep them in my stocking and they just stayed there. Each year so it's like a collection I don't touch. It turned into a tradition I guess. Another is that it used to be a tradition for me to always have McDonalds on Halloween, since fast food is kind of a rarity for me, and Pizza hut near Christmas... but I broke that this year (didn't have any). I do however, eat one candy bar a year and I had one for Halloween. Those are all the ones I can think of for now.

I celebrate the arrival of Spring with Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana".
On the last day of daylight savings time I bid the sun farewell by watching the sunset (unless it's rainy, in which case I just grumble and b*tch about it all day). Which reminds me--I have plans tomorrow evening. :(
I consider my birthday an official personal holiday and will not lift a finger unless it's an emergency!

Every year around the Christmas season I listen to and sing the song "Ding Fries Are Done". I've been doing this for several years.

There are other certain songs that I will only listen to during certain times of the year, and I don't mean Christmas songs. Summer is the only time I will listen to "Endless Summer" by Siria, "Ocean Avenue" by Yellowcard, and "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None the Richer. Winter is the only time I will listen to "Say It Right" by Nelly Furtado.

The Christmas bath. Every Christmas day I end up with more toiletries and bath bombs than I know what to do with. I never use them during the next year but on Christmas morning I do pick out my favourite bath bomb and perfume/body spray and have a long bath. Then wear either the pyjamas I've had (I always without fail receive new pyjamas) or if I've had a new t-shirt I'll wear that. Plus any jewellery or make-up I've received.

Most of those things don't get used again (apart from the clothes) but I always look forward to my bath and pamper.
