Holiday Traditions –

We don’t have very many traditions in our family, and as my children are reaching the age that they are at now, I have been trying to build and make our own for them to enjoy in the future..

One of the main ones has to be a new pair of pj’s on Christmas eve, hot chocolate or some milk and the best Christmas film, in my opinion of course The Muppet’s Christmas Carol before heading to bed.. Which I then break into my tradition of rush wrapping everything in the small space of time I have left.


My family has a tradition for Christmas day, once dinner has been eaten we move the tables out the way and sit down to share out the presents, I don’t know why we’ve done this but I find that it keeps the magic in the day a lot longer, the children might be impatient but I hope that once they get older they’ll see what I mean.

Not many, but they are ours and I love having them.. and each year we are going to keep adding little ones here and there to make sure our children have a magic time.

What are your families traditions?

Until next time

    I love the idea of leaving the presents until later! We used to have a family tradition of monopoly but we don’t play t any more as it caused too many arguments haha!
