Our Christmas Traditions

We love Christmas at the house. It seems every year, we add a little more to our ever growing list of traditions. Below are some of our family Christmas traditions.

  1. We make decorating the tree a family event. My husband makes hot chocolate and we play Christmas music. The boys love it.
  2. I make our own Christmas cards to send to our family and friends.
  3. Every year we make the boys go through their toys and clothes and donate to our local church for needy families.
  4. We take the boys for a walk, they collect pine cones. We decorate and use them as ornaments.
  5. Christmas Eve, the boys bake cookies and write a letter to Santa.
  6. My husband reads Twas a night before Christmas to the boys.
  7. We make a Christmas playlist with our favorite Christmas songs. Some of the songs on our playlist this year are: The Christmas Song by Hootie & The Blowfish, What Child Is This by Andrea Bocelli and Mary J Blige, O Come O Come Emmanuel by Enya, and The Twelve Days of Christmas by the cast of Phineas & Ferb.
  8. My husband and the boys always wear their ugly plaid pants on Christmas Day.

Merry Christmas!

From our family to yours

    How nice to share apart of your Christmas and family with us. My mom and dad are no longer with me and I miss them. Thank you for reminding me that there are still “families” and family traditions that will be for another generation. Love is seen throughout your traditions. Continue and know that family is love and the traditions that make it remain even after some lights shine no more..love Vondetta
