Christmas is one of the best times of the year to spend time with friends and family. With people taking vacations and kids getting school off there are plenty of activities to participate in during the holiday season. Family fun Christmas traditions aren’t uncommon in many households but perhaps you would like to try something different or add to your list of Christmas traditions?
We have come up with a small list of Family fun Christmas traditions that you can enjoy with friends and family for this holiday season.
1. Sing a Song
Bursting into a song, whether you’re making up your own Christmas lyrics or caroling with friends and family, is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit. Sending recordable cards, caroling at local nursing homes or individual houses, and singing at holiday parties are a sure way to spread the joy of holiday songs to others. Give it a try and you’ll be “fa-la-la-ing” before you know it.
2. Visit a Tree Farm
Begin your family’s holiday celebrations off right by dressing warm, bringing hot cocoa or warm apple cider, and going to a nearby Christmas tree farm to scout for the perfect Christmas tree. The use of artificial trees over the years has faded this tradition out a bit but it’s a great way to spend valuable time with friends and family.
Throw together your holiday cheer by getting together with family members to bake cookies and decorate them. Giving children tasks such as blending ingredients, measuring, and making shapes with cookie cutters will surely keep the kids occupied while having fun at the same time. At the point when the treats are cooled, the best part is decorating them. Bring out the colored frostings, sprinkles, and little confections, and watch everybody’s creative ability take off as you make delicious cookies. Make certain to spare a couple of cookies for yourself – they’ll be gone before you know it.
4. Personalize a Christmas Ornament
Guarantee that you and your family smile each time you stroll by the Christmas tree by decorating it with your most loved recollections. Personalizing an ornament is easier than you may think. You could display a most loved photograph of your grandchild or your pet in a ornament with a homemade photo frame. You could scribble down important names, dates, or other things on write-on ornaments. Visiting your local crafts store can give you many different ideas for personalizing your own ornament as well.
5. Get pictures taken
Whether you’re wearing your favorite Christmas sweater or holiday pajamas, use those digital devices to strike a pose and snap pictures with your friends and family during holiday gatherings. You could take the picture at the same location every year to make it a yearly tradition.
6. Start a Christmas Eve Tradition
Christmas Eve is a great time to set up an annual tradition. Reading favorite holiday stories can be a great way to spend time with friends and family. Passing the book around or designating one family member as the reader can quickly become a great family tradition. A Christmas Eve dinner or breakfast could become a holiday tradition as well.
