Welcome to the 12 days of Christmas family traditions!
The 12 days of Christmas family traditions series is designed to give you and your family some fun ways to connect over the Christmas season. Christmas looks a little different this year. You may not be able to do some of the normal festivities because they have been cancelled.
However, this season can still be filled with beautiful moments.
In fact, this season can be viewed as a gift. A slower period and time to focus in on what family traditions we already have and may want to add in.
12 Days of Christmas Family Traditions
Over the next twelve days, I will be sharing simple family traditions. This post will serve as a home for links to all of the ideas.
The goal is not that you would do all of these, but that you would pick a couple. Or maybe, one of the ideas will spur on a unique idea of your own!
I am a big fan of traditions and have always loved the traditions of my own family growing up. We still have the traditional monkey bread with a quiche or egg dish every time we celebrate Christmas with my parents and siblings.
Often, it is the little moments of family togetherness that brings about a tradition within your home.
We can get trapped in thinking we need these elaborate traditions, but this is simply not true. Your kids just want moments together. It can be driving around looking at lights together or watching a movie with hot chocolate. The key with this is to do what works best for your family.
Take time today and make a list of any traditions your family may already have. Circle or highlight any that you definitely want to do. Then look at the calendar and pencil these in.
