family christmas traditions

I have a 5month old, its a little early to start family traditions, but I was just wondering what are some fun things your family does that the kids, or the whole family enjoys?

  • My parents got a new ornament for our christmas tree every year for each of us kids, when we got married and started our own families they gave us our ornaments to use on our tree, and I do the same with my kids, its really nice to be able to have something like that

  • Making a snow man with his daddy and eating snow flake shape pancakes with the family ...we use to have a big tree but now only have a little 4 ft one fiber optic, it's ok but not the same baby is 19 now and was saying how he wants to have the big tree again so we can hang all the stuff on it....I miss that to. Always keep it going matter what you start with.

  • I also buy an ornament for each of my kids. I'll give them when they move out or marry. Live in California in an area where it doesn't snow. So starting in December whe go ice skating in a small town in the foothills. We stop and have a nice warm dinner and hot choclate on the way home. It's lot's of fun and many memories have been started there.
