The holiday season is about more than just gift giving and receiving; it’s a time for you and your family to create traditions and memories that last a lifetime. Decorating the tree, a holiday cookie bake, and Christmas movie nights can all become holiday traditions that get passed down from generation to generation. If you’re looking for fun holiday activities that can become your family’s next tradition, check out the following list created with inspiration from Country Living.
Pick a New Ornament as a Family
The Christmas tree tradition started in Germany in the 16th century. Each year, millions of families across the world keep the tradition going by choosing, preparing, and decorating the tree together as a family. Here’s an idea, gather your family together after Thanksgiving dinner and pick a special ornament for your tree. Keep it up five, ten, twenty years down the road, and you’ll have a very special collection your entire family will cherish.
Homemade Hot Chocolate Night
This is a delicious tradition for those cold winter nights spending time with your family, cuddled up in front of the fireplace watching Christmas movies. Create a family recipe and break it out on special nights like putting up the tree, Christmas light drives, movie nights, and even leave a cup out for Santa on Christmas eve. Try this amazing slow cooker hot chocolate recipe. Add special ingredients to make it your own!
Toy Drive Time
Make a tradition out of doing good for others this Christmas. There’s a lot of truth to the saying, “It’s better to give than receive.” Instill these values into your holiday routine and you will learn the true meaning of Christmas while teaching your kids a valuable life lesson.
