This is our first Christmas in the new-to-us house, so we’re thinking about new Christmas traditions here.
For one thing, now we have a formal living room and family room to decorate. So, while the tree is in the family room, I got to add some personal favorite Christmas touches to our living room.
Something new I’ve done this year is to give each person their own basket for presents. As the kids get presents from friends and family, they place them in their own special basket. (As an added bonus for me, this keeps the presents organized and not all over the floor!)
We’re still keeping some old traditions, too. For example, the kids know that before Santa can bring them new gifts, they have to go through their toys and donate those with which they no longer play.
And we always read The Night Before Christmas before bedtime on Christmas Eve.
It’s the mixture of old and new traditions that I love.
What’s your favorite Christmas or holiday tradition? We’d love for you to share it below.
