Tradition! 8 In-The-Know Locals Share Their Most Special Holiday Customs

Holiday traditions, whether they're silly or sentimental, are our favorite all-natural upper — they make you feel all warm and fuzzy, brighten your spirits, and create the feeling of connection, even when you're far from home. While we have our own list of must-dos around this time of year, we're always more than a little curious to see how others celebrate. Okay, okay, so we're a bit nosy — but you'll thank us when you're adopting these heartwarming (and hilarious) traditions for yourself. We tapped some D.C. residents who are shaking up the scene in a major way, whether it's a chef on a winning streak or a tireless — and on-top-of-her-game — media guru. They've shared their most-loved holiday traditions with us, and we're delighted to share them with you before we OD on cuteness. That's just how we roll — always sharing and caring!
