We all know why family holiday traditions are important -- they help your little unit feel extra close and make the days feel extra fun (even magical) for your kids. Whether you’ve got a new(ish) family and are looking for new ideas or you’re just sick of the same old cookies-and-carols routine, we've got fun, creative traditions you can make your own.
Take the Same Picture Each Year!
In front of your tree, on your front porch, in front of the fireplace or next to that oak tree in your backyard -- pick a spot to take a family photo and keep taking it every year! You can coordinate oufits, wear Santa hats, include the family pup or make silly faces -- but the best part is that in ten years, you can watch your toddler turn into a teen and your baby into a big kid!
