Finding Your Holiday Tradition
Here at Shutterfly, we understand well that some families have traditions that span generations. However, if your family is growing and you don't have any traditions to fall back on, especially around the holidays, what do you do? In addition to building a collection of traditional ornaments, here are a few things you can do to build lasting memories and traditions with your family.
Expand Your Cultural Horizons
Whether you come from a specific heritage or have a blended background, there are many different cultures with fun holiday traditions you can incorporate into your own activities. Some are more represented then you might think and serve as a wonderful learning experience for the whole family.
In Africa, Kwanzaa is a common winter celebration involving harvest foods. Homes are decorated in fruits and vegetables to celebrate a good bounty. You can place some fruit in a personalized catch-all tray for everyone to enjoy at any time of day. There's the added benefit of these foods being available if you've been trying to get someone in your household to eat healthier.
Chinese New Year is another fun celebration you can add to your family traditions. You can customize traditional ornaments of bright red depicting a mythical Chinese dragon. Children can especially have fun with this holiday as it features firecrackers.
12 Days of Inspiration
The 12 Days of Christmas is a common holiday song that many people learn at a young age. While the song features a list of gifts given during the season, the 12 days can represent any activity you want. Make a calendar specially for your 12 days and pick any of these fun activities.
12 Days of Baking: Try a new recipe every day.
12 Days of Exercise: Expand your existing routine with new activities.
12 Days of Giving: Find a local charity to volunteer with.
12 Days of Reading: Pick a book you haven't made time to read yet.
12 Days of Cleaning: Get your house ready for those holiday parties.
The Idea Jar
If none of these are appealing, get a personalized mason jar where everyone in the home can put their suggestions for a new tradition. Draw one every few days and brainstorm how to make it happen. Even if you don't pick a lasting one, you've already started the process of making a new tradition.
