The holiday season can be such a busy time of year between putting up the Christmas tree, decorating your home, shopping for gifts, holiday baking, menu planning, cleaning and holiday parties. It can sometimes be challenging to make time to actually enjoy this wonderful season.
With the holidays becoming more and more commercial, we thought it would be fun to compile a list of classic holiday traditions for your family to enjoy this holiday season.
These activities will take you away from the busy shopping malls and give you time to spend with your loved ones. They may also help you remember why this is such a magical and joyous time of the year and to appreciate the holiday season even more. Plus they are earth-friendly! And that is smart!
To quote Edna Ferber, "Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling."
