Give Your Family Something to Look Forward to With a New Tradition

Have you or your family fallen in to what can be described as a Christmas rut? Turning to the same old and almost obligatory standard gift giving habits year in and year out? It sounds like you may need to revive the festive spirit of the holidays with a new Christmas tradition that your family can call its own. Here is how it works.

The sooner you introduce something new and uplifting to you and your family's Christmas festivities, the happier and more fulfilled you and they will be. It goes without saying, that for most Christmas revelers, the tendency to fall in to a predictable pattern of celebrating the same Christmas traditions each and every year is very commonplace. Of course there is nothing wrong with that. But what if you were able to bring a newer kind of smile to your family faces by being able to get them involved in something they can look forward to each Christmas holiday season?

Here is just a small list of new Christmas traditions to consider:

- Choose a new Christmas time only recipe that they family will love. Of course, the first year you try this is the test. If you do not get consensus on the popularity of the dish, just try another one. Now, you have to stick to the tradition by not making it any other time of the year other than Christmas. You promise?

- Have your kids pick out a very special ornament each year. It will mean more to them when they look at the tree as each year passes to see ornaments from years past and what it meant to them.

- If you have crafty kids, even better than picking out a store bought ornament would be to give them the tools to make hand crafted ornaments or hand painted ornaments. This can be done quite inexpensively as well.

- Another possibility for an ornament theme is to start a tradition of handing down some of your ornaments each year to your grown children. Perhaps they are out on their own for the first time and cannot afford to put a lot of money in to tree trimming. So, why not help them out and bring back wonderful holiday memories for them at the same time?

- Get your children involved in outdoor home decorating and lighting. Be careful when it comes to electricity, but letting one, both, or all of them flip the switch that turns on the Christmas lights can be quite a thrill.

See, when you give it a little thought, it is quite easy to come up with some great ideas for a new family Christmas tradition that you all can enjoy. Merry Christmas! Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/2323632
