The Big Question: What's your favorite winter tradition?

Rose Wong for NPR

We want to hear from you about the big (and small) questions that shape our lives. Then, we want to put you on the air. Each month, we ask a new question, collect your recorded responses, and air some of them on All Things Considered with host Peter Biello.

With winter upon us, many of us have special things we do to celebrate the season. Maybe you go sledding with friends from the neighborhood. Maybe this is the time of year you make a cherished family recipe. Or maybe this is your time to sit back, relax and do nothing at all.

So that's this month’s Big Question: What's your favorite winter tradition?
