Every family looks forward to family Christmas gatherings. Traditions bring families together. They give a feeling of security, comfort, and belonging. And most importantly they help strengthen family values. And what’s a better time to execute all of these things than during Christmas?
One way to add even more flavor to your family Christmas gatherings is to tie in your gifts exchanges with something else. For example, let’s say that we’ve decided to make it a family Christmas where we give each family member a special toy or other small gift that they will love. One of the most popular Christmas gift exchange ideas for this is the “One Christmas” game. Here are some unique and fun family Christmas traditions for you to try out this Christmas.
First of all, let’s talk about decorating the Christmas tree. The holidays are all about having a grand Christmas tree. Decorating the tree gives families a chance to get really creative and really spend some time together.
One great tradition to add to your Christmas holiday basket this year is the “One Christmas” game. Set up a little table in the corner of the room. Have everyone pass out $1 bills. One person at the table points out a family member and asks them if they would like a Christmas gift basket. Each person places a dollar bill into their basket, and the first person to find the true gift wins a Christmas gift.
Another fun family Christmas traditions for the holidays is to look forward to what Christmas might have in store for you. What might be a good theme for the holidays this year? It’s time to start thinking about the possibilities for Christmas decorations. It may be a good idea to look at what we used to decorate our houses when we were children. What pieces of decorating tools and materials can we use to create unique, whimsical yet traditional looking decorations for our homes?
One great tradition to look forward to with your family on Christmas day is the yearly tradition of Christmas carols. If you grew up listening to these songs, then it’s likely that you will want to pass them along to your children when they’re grown. There are many Christmas carols that can be sung during the season, so don’t worry if you don’t know any.
There is also another holiday bucket list tradition that you might be able to take part in with the whole family. Instead of just placing a few lights on the door, or the Christmas tree, you can start putting lights all over your house and making sure that each light represents a holiday that belongs to your family. This means that you can make the whole house light up or just the trees and some of the front porch.
Another tradition that you and your kids should definitely be taking part in is decorating the house before dinner on Christmas Eve. This sounds really boring, but you’ll be surprised how much fun it can be! You’ll have so much fun decorating the house that you may not even remember what you did on Christmas morning. For most families, the kids will start gathering accessories for their own Christmas tree right after dinner. This means that the whole family can gather around the table and work on their Christmas tree together. Everyone gets to see how their decorations are coming together, which means that you can look back on the whole process with a smile every year.
If you have a movie night at home, then you need to make sure that you take the family out for a movie night. The kids are going to love this idea, and you may get so into watching the movies that you’ll forget about Christmas! Take the entire family out for a good movie night, and then make sure that you all spend some time together. Every year, you can look back at that movie night fondly and remember what a special Christmas day it was for you and the family.
Another fun tradition that you and your kids can get involved in is baking Christmas cookies. This is actually a really cute tradition that you can make yourself if you’re feeling up to the challenge. All you need is some delicious Christmas cookie recipes and you’re good to go. All you need to decorate the cookies is some chocolate and some decorations that match the Christmas theme, which will make it easy to put together a successful tradition.
Of course, these are just a few traditions that you can incorporate into your family Christmas ritual. For more ideas, you can look through some of the fabulous Christmas decorating books that are available at your local book store or online. There are also many wonderful Christmas themed crafts that you can make with your children. And, if you want to get creative, then you can always decorate your tree in a unique and personal way. You can add decorations that you find around the Christmas tree stand or that you make yourself.
