I grew up with family traditions with my siblings and to this day they don't let us break them when we are together for holidays! Most all of them are pretty traditonal and I like the sense of unity and routine (surprise surprise!) they bring.
Except for the circus----pretty random! When I was small the circus was always in town on Thanksgiving weekend. It was awesome.
I want to have our little family's own traditions too.
Here's our short list:
Watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade
Attend Christmas Eve service
Make a birthday cake for Jesus and sing Happy Birthday
That's it --- it's so short!
I'm looking for help to think of ideas, so leave a comment and tell me your family's favorite tradition!
