With the holidays in full swing, it’s time to start celebrating with new holiday traditions. From an exciting bake off to volunteering your time, there is a multitude of different traditions that you can add to your existing traditions for more fun this holiday! Check out these six holiday traditions that you can try out this season!
Nothing screams happy holidays more then baking your favorite holiday cookies! Instead of just a day of baking, you can hold a fun bake-off to make things more fun! From testing different recipes to decorating cookies, the friendly competition will get everyone excited. The best part is all the cookies you’ll have to sample after the bake-off is done!
Make a Yearly Ornament
Grab a bunch of crafting supplies and gather the whole family to each make a new ornament for the holiday. Remember all your past holidays with this fun keepsake. You also don’t have to limit your creativity with just making ornaments. Instead, just sit down and make crafts like wreaths, garland, or table centerpieces with the family that get everyone ready for the upcoming festivities!
Holiday Movie Night
Have each person write down a list of his or her favorite holiday movies and get ready to have quite the festive movie night. Put on your PJs, get comfortable and snuggle up for the night by watching your favorite holiday movies with the whole family! This is bound to get everyone in the holiday mood and spread the cheer.
Volunteer Your Time
The holidays aren’t just for gathering and celebrating with friends and family, it’s also a time for giving back. Set some time aside and visit a local soup kitchen, food bank, or senior citizen center and spend some time giving back. This is a great way to get the whole family involved while spreading holiday cheer to others!
Watch a Holiday Performance
There are plenty of holiday shows and performances going on during the holiday season. Keep your eyes open for local events that put on a classic holiday performance that the whole family can watch and enjoy!
Cookie swaps have become very popular and they are a great way to spread holiday cheer with friends and family. Whether you’ve been invited to a cookie swap or you are thinking about hosting one, it’ll be a fun tradition for everyone to participate in. Have your family, friends, and neighbors make some of their favorite holiday cookies to share for the swap and make a day out of the cookie swap! Everyone will enjoy this holiday tradition!
