10 Christmas Traditions to Start This Year

10 CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS TO START THIS YEAR

Looking for ways to slow down the busy holiday season and create lasting memories? Sit down as a family and have each person pick out one activity to do together between now and Christmas. 

1. Watch Christmas Movies in Your PJs

Get in your PJs, snuggle up on the couch, and turn on a Christmas movie favorite. 

2. Make Christmas Cookies  

Bake Christmas cookies, then decorate them with frosting and sprinkles. 

3. Have an Indoor Snowball Fight

Fold some socks up into a ball, make forts, and have an indoor snowball fight. 

4. Christmas Service Project 

Do something to bring others some Christmas cheer. Make cookies and deliver them to a neighbor, go caroling at a nursing home, take treats to a local fire or police station orshovel someone's driveway. 

5. Christmas Book Advent 

Hit up Goodwill or wrap books you already own and allow the kids to open one book each night leading up to Christmas and read it together before bedtime. 

6. Make a Gingerbread House  

Start from scratch or use a kit to create a gingerbread house. 

7. Make Your Own Snow

Play in the snow without having to bundle up. Choose one of these recipes to make your own snow. 

8. Christmas Crafts

Whether it be ornaments, snowflakes, or Christmas cards, choose a Christmas-themed craft to make together. 

9. Have a Christmas Campout 

Spend the evening around the Christmas tree. Get out the sleeping bags, make a tent, string some Christmas lights, turn on the fireplace, and make some indoor smores

10. Create your own version of the Polar Express

Pick a random night during December and surprise the kids with a ticket to "The Polar Express." Print out golden tickets and place them on their pillows. Instead of going to bed, hop in the car in PJs, eat holiday-themed popcorn, drink hot cocoa, blast Christmas music, and drive around to see Christmas lights.
