Christmas Traditions to Start

Everyone has their own way of celebrating the holidays. Traditions if you will. Mine is we set the tree up as a family, we get to open up one gift on Christmas eve, Santa fills our stockings and we get a few larger gifts that don’t fit in our stockings that are unwrapped from Santa, its almost guaranteed that we will get a new tooth brush with tooth paste in our stockings, we aren’t allowed to go near the tree or our stockings until everyone is awake and then after everyone has gone through the stockings we sort out the presents under the tree and take turns opening our gifts. I’ve gathered a few ideas and activities that you might want to add to your own traditions.

You can watch Santa’s reindeer anytime of day or night, and you can see Santa feed them at schedule times each day.

Tickets to the Christmas Light Express

Kind of inspired by the Polar Express, print off some golden tickets and one night before bed time drive around town to see all the Christmas lights.

To keep the anticipation going Christmas morning, don’t label any of the gifts, wrap gifts in different paper for each person, and stash a piece of the paper in the bottom of their stocking to discover which presents are theirs’.
Santa Prints

This one will should be fun for the kids, take a cutout of a boot print and sprinkle flour, powder sugar, or baking soda around the cutout, and adding some sparkly glitter will add a touch of magic to it.
