As Christmas Day and Hanukkah loom near, Midlothian High School students don their Santa hats and prepare for the joyous holiday. During this time of year, students look forward to enjoying their favorite holiday traditions. Each student, along with families and friends, practice a different tradition unique to their holiday celebration. From placing ornaments on a hand-picked Christmas tree and adding a big star on top, to hiding the Christmas pickle ornament for the kids to look for on Christmas morning, numerous traditions exist in the Midlothian community.
