I love holiday traditions! I am so excited to start our own family traditions and continue ones from our childhood that we loved. When I was young, every year at Christmas we did an ornament exchange, baked Jesus a birthday cake, left a note and food for Santa, and got to open one gift on Christmas Eve which was always a set of pj’s to wear that night. I feel like I’ve come up with a new idea every day and I need to start narrowing them down to the best.
Some of my ideas:
-Buying a bag similar to this one that Santa leaves out for Brady each and every year. Maybe it will hold a certain thing each year or maybe we will always make it the last present he opens.
–Elf on the shelf. Am I the only person that’s never heard of this? It seems like such a cute idea.
-Baking and taking treats to our family and friends
-Going out to pick and cut down a real tree
-Buying Brady a special ornament each year
I’m sure I’ll probably come up with even more ideas before Christmas! Do you all have any awesome holiday traditions I should add to the list? What were your favs when you were young?
