This year it’s our first Christmas as a family and I’m really keen to start some Christmas traditions. Where do you start what ones are best !! I thought I would put it to my fellow bloggers to give me some inspiration on what traditions we could start .
The one that came up the most was the Christmas Eve box and I love the idea of this . Packed full of little treats to get both yourself and your little ones excited .
We do Christmas Eve boxes for the little ones – new pjs, new christmas dvd, hot chocolate and a Christmas book. Treat breakfast on Christmas Day and lots of family time. Oh and we HAVE to watch the Queen!
Last year was our first family Christmas, so I started the tradition of a Christmas Eve box. Includes the usual pjs, dvd, hot chocolate and book, but I also put in a tree decoration with Alfie’s name and the year on. This year I will buy a new decoration with his name and the year on and plan to do this every year now. I also happen to take a beautiful photo of Daddy and Alfie putting the star on the tree – so I plan to take one every year of that as well. A rather random one but we always have pigs in blankets and hot sausage rolls to eat whilst opening our presents!
This is our first Christmas too. We’re doing a Christmas Eve box and 12 days of Christmas where we will read A different Christmas/Winter themed book every night before bed.
I also found a lot of people don’t just do one Christmas tradition they do multiple.
I love Christmas!! We have elf on the shelf (and I make props and crafts to sell too) also xmas eve box…. first weekend of December we decorate the tree, xmas songs mince pies and mulled wine etc
