The holiday season is the perfect time to think about creating family traditions. Whether it’s decorating the tree on Christmas Eve or having friends and family over for a special holiday brunch; you can create memories that will last a lifetime.
You may be newlyweds, blending two families together, or simply looking for new ways to bring meaning to your holiday season. In any case below you’ll find some food for thought when it comes to creating your own family traditions.
Copy traditions from your childhood:
Start with your favorite memories and recreate those traditions in your own home. For instance, your mother may have hosted a cookie exchange each year for family members. You can copy those traditions with your own twist-perhaps bringing together friends and their children to create gingerbread houses.
