Christmas traditions are something that we all cherish and remember throughout our lives. Take some time this year and create new Christmas traditions with your family. I’ve put together a list of twelve easy Christmas tradition ideas for moms.
1.) Use the 12 Days of Christmas theme and give your children inexpensive gifts for each of the twelve days of Christmas.
2.) Prepare a Christmas book with family photos for each Christmas.
3.) Have a special Christmas movie night with Christmas food.
4.) Prepare Christmas gift 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 choose a package of their favorite treats to decorate the gingerbread house.
6.) Make your own Christmas greeting cards.
7.) Go singing Christmas carols in your neighborhood at a family member’s home.
8.) Volunteer, sponsor a soldier overseas, or donate used toys and clothing to less fortunate families.
9.) Make at least one new ornament per person in the family each year to put on the Christmas tree.
10.) Let your child choose and buy an inexpensive gift for a child in need.
11.) Make your own garland out of nuts, fruits, greeting cards, popcorn or candy and hang them on your tree.
12.) Make a favorite Christmas recipe together. Splurge on the recipe ingredients. Choose something very tasty, even if it is expensive or full of fat.
I hope these twelve simple Christmas tradition ideas bring joy to your family for all the years to come.
