Holiday Traditions

There are so many ways to get in the holiday spirt that doesn't have to involve gift giving. In my house, holiday traditions are a big deal. Christmas is my fathers favorite day of the year and all of our traditions have been past down through many generations. My favorite tradition of ours is cutting our own Christmas tree. Even when I was a little girl we never bought a tree from a store. We would get our permits months ahead of time and I would count down the days on my calendar (as I said Christmas is a big deal in my family). We would drive to the mountains, pick a tree and spend all night decorating it and listening to Christmas music. These are some other traditions we follow if you need inspiration to create your own memories this holiday season:

  • Making/decorating a gingerbread house
  • Opening Christmas PJ's on Christmas Eve
  • Elf on the shelf 
  • Mail a letter to Santa (but keep it)
  • (In normal years) Take a picture with Santa 

No matter what the tradition you can't beat the memories you will have with your family! Happy Holidays!
