What are your family Christmas traditions??
When I was growing up we just did the exchanging of gifts on Christmas morning and then had a big dinner that day. Now the DS is 3 soon to be 4 and I'd like to start some traditions that he we always reflect on. Here are some of my ideas:
Baking a birthday cake for Jesus - DS love to help me bake!
Saving change in a cider jug throughout the year to use to help the less fortunated at Christmas. We always have mulled cider on Christmas Eve and I think this would be kind of neat!
We have kicked around the idea of a mini parade in our subdivision including the residents riding mowers, go karts etc. (DH thinks I am looney!) I do have some support from other neighbors though - give me honest opinions on this.
Christmas Eve has always been celebrated at our house for the last 10 years and I suppose this will continue.
Anyone care to share?
