It's not a Christmas tradition, not a Chanukah tradition, if you are the only one looking forward to it. Why not retire the worn out ones this year and try something new?
If everyone looks forward to the new one next December, keep it. If not, keep experimenting.
The great traditions are the ones that build excitement in advance and memories to savor after the holiday has passed, and there is no way to predict which ones will have meaning for you and yours.
