Favorite Holiday Traditions

Traditions are a staple in our family during the holidays. They are paths that we go through to know where we are going and where we’ve come from. They are intentional events and celebrations of what we want our children to learn, and how we want to teach them to celebrate.

‘Everyday’ and ‘especially’ traditions in a family are an important part of that teaching… Traditions are a vital way of displaying our greatest treasure, of showing what—Who—is most important to us.” 

We love to celebrate as a family. Traditions take our celebrations to a deeper level. They help form us as a family. They form lasting memories that our children will take with them for the rest of their life, and hopefully, one day pass down to their own families.

Creating our own traditions has always been a priority. We have taken some from my family (like Christmas eve pizza night), and some from my husbands. In this way we recognize where we have come from, and are able to share with our children and friends what is important in our life.

‘Our celebrations work good in our own live and in other people whose lives touch ours…
