One that my Mom did and I plan to start is every Christmas morning she would have an array of candy set out on the coffee table. I'm sure we had enough candy in our stockings but we munched on it all day... it consisted of chocolate covered peanut clusters, cinnamon santas or trees, orange sticks and other stuff. I won't put as much out but I liked this tradition. One that I don't plan on carrying out is that we had to wait till after breakfast to open gifts....the anticipation was a killer. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
