Cookie decorating, gingerbread house constructing, tree decorating, pictures with Santa, holiday movies. These are all common traditions that many households, including my own, participate in each holiday season. From the weekend after Thanksgiving, through the countdown to the New Year, families across the world enjoy completing the same things they have done every year. But what if things change for your family. What if your kids get older, or there’s a change in where you celebrate, or any number of different scenarios arise and you’re looking for a change? Well you’re in luck! I’ve dug up a few ideas for new traditions you might want to give a whirl. Some of them sound so fantastic I may give them a try myself: giving back, a hot cocoa bar, holiday journaling and a neighborhood lights car trip. Others, well…. let’s just say I don’t think we’ll be integrating any time soon. But hey, to each his own!
