When you think back on all of your previous Christmas holidays, you probably remembered your Christmas traditions. Most families have at least one Christmas tradition that has been passed on down from generation to generation. These traditions are what make the holiday so sentimental. But as time goes on, you may be looking to add more traditions to this special holiday. Here are 4 Christmas traditions to try this year.
Christmas Eve Pajamas
This is a common Christmas tradition. Everyone in the family gets a new set of PJs that they can wear on Christmas Eve. Matching PJs are perfect for a quick family snapshot before opening presents on Christmas morning! You can even add fuzzy slippers or cute eyemasks.
Dinner and a Light Show
Eat out at a restaurant that is open on Christmas Eve, then on the way home drive around town looking at all of the Christmas decorations and lights. Bring a playlist of Christmas carols for a family show on the road. Everyone in the family will love getting involved and singing along to those merry Christmas tunes.
Christmas Eve Movie Night
There’s no better night to snuggle up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa then on Christmas Eve. How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Christmas Story, and Home Alone are just three movies that the whole family will love. It’s a great way to distract the kids from the excitement of opening presents in the morning.
Snacks for Santa and the Reindeer
After dinner, have the children help you prepare some goodies for Santa Claus. You can take it an extra step by having the kids leave some carrots out for Santa’s reindeer. The kids will love getting involved, and once you have left out the goodies, it’s a perfect opportunity to send the kids off to bed.
Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or any relative, these are the best Christmas traditions to try this year. Everyone can get in on the fun and work towards making this holiday season more festive than ever. What’s your favorite Christmas tradition?
