American Idol finalists Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo are eager to begin their own holiday traditions as a married couple for the first time this year.
"We've already been decorating, and it's been a lot of fun because we're creating our own traditions," Young told PEOPLE at Sunday's annual Hollywood Christmas Parade. "We have a blank slate. It's kind of weird."
The newlyweds, who have been married for six months, decided to have their Thanksgiving dinner guests decorate Christmas stockings after eating their turkey this year.
"After we had our Thanksgiving meal, we sat down, and we surprised all of our guests," DeGarmo, 26, tells PEOPLE. "And we had them decorate their stocking, so they could have a stocking either to take home or to leave at our house."

Just over four months into his marriage to Justin Mikita, Jesse Tyler Ferguson happily admits that he has yet to abandon that coveted honeymoon phase.
But like many newly married couples, the two are finding it increasingly hard to ignore the pitter-patter of just about any feet.
"We're baby crazy right now," the Modern Family star told PEOPLE while hosting the grand opening of the couple's Tie the Knot store at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles on Thursday.
"We see kids with families walking around, and if those parents look away for too long, someone has to hold us back to not steal them."

Some holiday traditions are too important to not do yourself – and when it comes to picking out a Christmas tree, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux don't put on airs.
The glamorous pair ventured out of their sprawling Bel Air mansion to personally pick out a tree – in this case a 10-ft. Noble Fir from Mr. Greentrees in Beverly Hills that Theroux paid for.
"Jen picks her own Christmas tree every year," says a witness. "It's a tradition for her. She's very specific about the tree that she wants. "
At the tree lot, "Jen was in a great mood and took her time to pick out the perfect tree," says the witness. "Justin helped her and she found a beautiful one."

The former Victoria's Secret model – who announced her separation from Orlando Bloom after three years of marriage this fall – is rumored to be dating Aussie billionaire James Packer.
Packer, 46, is a casino mogul and an insider tells PEOPLE he and Kerr, 30, "are definitely seeing each other." (Though a Kerr source says the two are strictly friends.)
In September, Packer announced that he had separated from his wife, Erica Baxter. The two were married in 2007 in a lavish ceremony on the French Riviera. They have three children: Indigo, 5, Jackson Lloyd, 3, and 15-month-old Emmanuelle Sheelah.

A day after admitting in court that she had used cocaine and marijuana in the past, Nigella Lawson said Thursday that she was embarrassed but wanted to come clean about the drug use.

"I am not proud of the fact that I have taken drugs, but that does not make me a drug addict or a habitual drug user," she added.
