Family traditions define who we are. They give us something steady and safe in a confusing world. They bring us closer together, help us recall the past, and create memories. This is especially true of kids, who find security and a sense of belonging in family activities. Here are a few Christmas traditions I’ve found meaningful and worth passing on.
Bake Cookies with Kids
Enjoy Old, but Meaningful Displays
Gather with Family, Friends, and Pets
Read Christmas Stories
Keep Family Cultural Celebrations
Find someone who is away from family, friends, or home and plan to be with them for some part of the Christmas season. Donate to your local food bank, visit the homebound, or those in care facilities. Look for ways to share the joy.
