And the winner is:
We light candles in lanterns every night of Advent and say a short liturgy together. We also spread out the gift giving/opening over the twelve days of Christmas rather than one big hurrah where things get lost and ignored.Both of these things slow us down in a season where it is entirely too easy to rush around.

Thanks for the entries, everyone! I loved reading them and was inspired by your traditions!
