Christmas Traditions~
Are you getting ready.. are your children excited?? Mine are...and traditions are important. One of our family's favorite traditions is going to Oma's house on Christmas Eve. Another is decorating our tree together.
Including traditions during the holidays can bring families together and give children something to look forward to each Christmas.
This year, we are going to start a couple more simple additions.
If your family doesn't have a Christmas Eve Tradition, I think this one sounds lovely~
Spend Christmas Eve under the tree. Have a picnic next to your Christmas tree. Get cold cuts, cheese, bread, condiments, and sparkling apple cider at the grocery store. Put the food out on nice holiday platters and lay out a blanket next to the tree. Enjoy a simple dinner next to the Christmas tree as a family. This is something fun that children will love.
The next two are simple ones that I am going to add to our household this year.
Make breakfast together on Christmas morning. Elongate the Christmas experience by having the children help make breakfast on Christmas morning. Wait to open up the presents after breakfast is finished. Cinnamon rolls baking in the oven will make the entire house smell festive.
