I got something and now I need your input. My last post was a cry for help…and help I got. Tam suggested a holiday post so here goes.
I have a new family, and so now I have the chance of starting new holiday family traditions. With the holidays quickly approaching, I want to know what YOUR traditions are.
Enjoy home cooked or purchase pre-prepared food and enjoy time with family?
Travel or have guests come to your house?
Best china or disposable for easy clean up?
Do you decorate the whole house, or just wait until Christmas?
Ever worked at a homeless shelter or soup kitchen on Thanksgiving? Would you bring young kids or wait till they are older?
Open gifts Christmas Eve or wait till morning?
Leave out cookies and milk and a carrot, or depend on all the other families in the world to feed Santa and Rudolph on Christmas Eve?
Midnight service or early?
Ever visit another church on Christmas Eve?
How do you teach your kids that it’s not about getting presents? What traditions do you have to teach giving and helping?
Share a good holiday story or share one family tradition from your childhood that you will NOT continue as an adult or parent.
Thanks and lets have fun!
