WE ASKED JBER...

What is your favorite holiday tradition? 

Watching holiday movies in a certain order.

Even when I’m separated from my family, we watch them on the same night, so it’s like watching them together.

We start with “Holiday Inn” on Thanksgiving and end with “It’s a Wonderful Life” on Christmas Eve.

Lt Col Jennifer Mack , Commander

What is your favorite holiday tradition? 

Getting up super early and making monkey bread.

The aroma from the brown sugar and cinnamon lights the house up.

Everyone gathers to enjoy the fresh bread, hot chocolate, and sing carols.

To have dinner on Christmas Eve with family and staying up until midnight to open our presents.

Spending quality time with my parents and little sister, whether it be cooking or watching my sister open her presents.

Nigel Floyd , Buckner Fitness Center

What is your favorite holiday tradition? 

Mine is a little different than normal, we get up early and travel somewhere new.

Last year we went out exploring Palmer and the year before that we were in Paris!

We just pick somewhere random on our adventure list and go.
