Are you looking for fun family traditions to start with your family? Here’s a list of Christmas traditions to help you create priceless memories with your family.
Christmas is by far my favorite holiday! I love shopping for other people and seeing the smiles on their faces when they open their gifts on Christmas morning. Like any other family, our family has things that we do every year for Christmas. These are the 4 Christmas traditions that our family loves:
1. Taking pictures with Santa
Tatiana loves taking pictures with Santa! Last year was our first year meeting Santa and she was a little scared. This year she couldn’t get enough of him and took pictures with him twice. These photos are perfect for those beloved Christmas cards that you mail out every year.
2. Making ornaments
This is probably my favorite Christmas tradition of them all. I love making these ornaments because not only is it a fun craft for the family, but it is a great keepsake as well. Christmas crafts are always a huge hit with the kids.
3. Elf on the Shelf
Who doesn’t playing a little game of Elf on the Shelf? We love hiding Sparkles and letting Tatiana find her. She’s always so excited to find Sparkles.
4. Open one gift on Christmas Eve
Every night on Christmas Eve, everyone is allowed to open one gift. It’s always pj’s so I never get excited, but Tatiana hasn’t caught on to this tradition yet so it’s still fun seeing the smile on her face.
