The Holidays: Fun Family Holiday Traditions

Traditions are an important part of the holiday season and since there’s only about two weeks left until Christmas, I thought I’d share with you some of my holiday traditions. We didn’t celebrate the holidays when I was growing up so most of these I made tradition for my own family and hopefully my kid will keep a few of them for her family.

Decorating the Tree - We usually put the tree up together about a month before Christmas and decorate it with all the ornaments we’ve collected over the years. Except for the fillers, each ornament is a symbolic representation of us and/or holds a special memory. 

Decorating the House - I don’t know why, but I’m not really into decorating the outside of my home. Instead, I deck the halls, doorways and living room with poinsettias and a few other holiday trinkets we've collected over the years.

Card Exchange - This is probably one of my favorite of all my holiday traditions, exchanging holiday cards, handmade ornaments, and recipes with people from all over the world really helps you get in the holiday spirit. This year I received cards from Isle Of Man, Germany, France, Australia, Trinidad, Canada and all over the United States.

Holiday Photos - This is especially precious when the kiddos are little, they grow up so quick so it’s important to capture photos of them every chance you get. Christmas photos also make great personalized gifts.

Holiday Movie Binge - Lounging around watching classic holiday movies is definitely something we all should partake in at least once a year.

Baking Cookies - We attempt making gingerbread houses a couple of times but we suck at it. Instead, we bake cookies.

Christmas Morning Breakfast - Our individual schedules are so crazy, we hardly ever get to eat breakfast together anymore so we look forward to Christmas breakfast every year. The guy normally handles this and it comes with the works. 

P.s. I’m curious...

What’s your family’s favorite holiday tradition?
What’s your favorite Christmas movie?
What’s your favorite Christmas song?

Mine would be exchanging holiday cards, Home Alone, and Santa Baby by Ariana Grande. Please share yours below.

Happy Holidays!
