Christmas traditions are something that we all cherish and remember throughout our lives. Take some time this year and make some new Christmas traditions with your family. I have put together a list of twelve simple Christmas tradition ideas for moms.
1.) Use the 12 days of Christmas theme and give out inexpensive gifts to your kids for each of the twelve days of Christmas.
2.) Put together a family photo Christmas book for each Christmas.
3.) Have a special Christmas movie night with Christmas food.
4.) Put together Christmas goody bags for your family and friends. Include candy, stickers, and a small craft for each child in the family.
5.) Make a gingerbread house together. Let each person pick out a pack of their favorite candy to decorate the gingerbread house with.
6.) Make your own holiday greeting cards.
7.) Go Christmas caroling in your neighborhood at a family member’s home.
8.) Volunteer, sponsor a soldier overseas, or donate good used toys and clothes to less fortunate families.
9.) Make at least one new ornament per person in the family each year to place on the Christmas tree.
10.) Let your child pick out and purchase an inexpensive gift for a child in need.
11.) Make your own garland out of nuts, fruit, greeting cards, popcorn, or candy and hang them on your tree.
12.) Make a favorite Christmas recipe together. Splurge on ingredients for the recipe. Choose something extra tasty even if it is expensive or full of fat.
I hope these twelve simple Christmas tradition ideas bring joy to your family each and every year to come.
