If you are a new parent or just want to build a Christmas celebration that you have built, trying to be creative with a new family tradition can be a small struggle.
There is nothing like Christmas from a child's point of view, and you do not want these short years to be in vain.
So that raises the question: How do you make your holiday season special and something your kids expect all year long?
The answer lies in the formation of a special family tradition that you do from year to year.
In addition to the time for cakes, shopping, and endless circles "Let it Snow" on the radio, Christmas is the season to spend time with family.
From chopping down a Christmas tree to watching a special holiday to watch over Santa Claus, there are many ways to add extra magic to your Christmas every December and to build family memories that will last a lifetime.
Do not be afraid to embrace a cheering holiday. Limit the appropriate Christmas sweater, check out holiday lighting displays, and start a new holiday tradition this year with these 10 festive ideas.
During the holiday season, it can be very easy to wrap up in our own world.
Between Christmas shopping, attending countless parties, and trying to juggle family time with other life commitments, the true meaning of Christmas can be lost.
Take time this year (and every year) to give back.
Ask your child to research and donate to a local charity, go to a nursing home and read with a parent, or volunteer at a local homeless or food shelter.
This small act of kindness will teach your children to give more than they want.
Cut Your Own Tree
Artificial Christmas trees that are comfortable and headed to many trees can be an unforgettable event, but nothing like cutting down your own pine trees.
Find the closest christmas tree farm, take a chainsaw, and go hunt down your living room entertainment center.
Your child will be happy to help pick the perfect tree, and seeing you cut it will turn you into a holiday hero.
And you can start telling the origin of the Christmas tree, its history, and its relationship with christmas, which can be said to make no sense and nothing to do
Count Down to Christmas With an Advent Calendar
Get your family pumped for Christmas by counting down to the big day together.
There are dozens of different ways to create a twist on the Advent calendar.
Make a chain of paper and every day write a Bible verse, vacation-themed activity, or charity to do in anticipation of Christmas.
Or, encourage reading with an Adventist calendar and read it every night.
There are also more traditional calendars, such as those filled with chocolates or small toys that you can open every morning.
Which is somehow nothing to do. Maybe you will not find a verse in the Bible that tells about christmas, christmas tree let alone Santa Claus.
Decorate the House Together
Before you begin decorating, have your children choose new ornaments each year to enable them to express their personality in the tree.
Then, as you decorate the house, set up a child-friendly snack like a meatball, and a Christmas cake (of course).
Give your children the freedom to hang decorations on the trees, set up holiday villages, and put stockings on the fireplace.
Do not worry if it's not perfect - you can always clean up the decor later.
And do not forget you tell how Christmas can be synonymous with Christmas tree and Santa Claus.
Embrace the Elves on the Rack
Keep your kids on tiptoe this holiday season and have them maintain good behavior by naming Elves on the Rack.
Based on the best-selling picture book, the scout elf was sent by Santa Claus to spy on children throughout December and report back on good (or bad) behavior.
Sure, they're a little creepy, but there are also dozens of ways to be creative with these elves and make them interactive for your kids.
Elf, Santa, Christmas tree, where did that come from?
Have a Movie Night
On this winter night, what sounds more interesting than curling up on the couch with the family, lighting a fire in the fireplace, and watching a Christmas movie?
Whether you're following a classic Claymation marathon movie like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and The Year Without a Santa Claus, go to the old school with It's a Wonderful Life, or decide to watch some weird sci-fi movies on holiday, have a movie night with hot cocoa, kettle corn, and plenty of blankets are a very festive (and cheap!) way to celebrate.
Well, at least your Christmas night is quite memorable for your family, although christmas has nothing to do with trees, elves, and Santa.
Open One Present on Christmas Eve
The anticipation of opening gifts on Christmas morning has made the children awake on Christmas Eve for centuries.
Helps reduce excitement by choosing a small gift and allowing your child to open it on December 24th.
New pajamas for them to wear on Christmas morning, a book to help put them to sleep, or a new movie to watch are all the perfect Christmas-before-Christmas gifts.
At least your kids are entertained, with the gifts they receive, but once more tell the truth behind all the christmas celebrations.
Take in the Lights
Some things bring more cheer to the environment than elaborate Christmas lights.
Load the family in the car one night and drive around the nearest crazy city.
While in the car, play christmas music and drink some pepper lattes or hot juice.
If you want to shake your Christmas light shades, make a Christmas light bingo card (stuffed with stuff like blowing Santas, candy canes, and caroler) and anyone who will get an early Christmas present!
You yourself also confused what the relationship lights, trees, elves, saints and other Christmas trinkets that have absolutely nothing to do.
Track Santa on Christmas Eve
Santa Claus is coming to town on Christmas Eve, but when does he arrive at your house?
Tune to Santa NORAD Tracker to keep track of Kris Kringle.
As she approaches your town, be sure to enter the children and say good night.
Santa Claus will not come if they are not in their beds!
Yes, another lie you make to just make your children happy, but it's good you are honest that none of it.
Wear Ugly Sweaters Together
There are lots of cheap things about the Christmas season, but really embrace the holiday side by dressing up with the same Miss Mama.
Whether you're wearing it for your family gathering, as you do for your holiday shopping, or for your Christmas card photo, the same dress will surely be welcomed by everyone around you.
The celebration of the day lied to the children of the world began.
