A Lunachick Holiday: Top Christmas Traditions





I cannot believe it is already only 5 days away from Christmas! You might be trying to think of ways to make this Christmas one to remember. One way to make this time of year extra special is by starting traditions that your family can continue in years to come. I will share with you some of my favorites that have made Christmas a time to look forward to every year. 
  
1.       Christmas Eve game night.

This is an easy one! Pull out your favorite board games and round up all of the family. If you want to get super creative and festive, you could get small prizes for the winners of the game. Prizes could be as small as chocolates or as big as $5 gift cards to different restaurants or stores. Have fun with this! You could do a Christmas style scavenger hunt or any games that you know your family loves!

2.       Christmas morning breakfast and gift exchange. 


My family loves this one! All of the kids get a chance to open gifts and play with their cousins. The adults get a chance to enjoy each other’s company and FOOD! Breakfast is so easy to make. If a few people pitch in, it can be done in no time! There is nothing like chowing down on Christmas morning surrounded by family.

3.       A Christmas movie.

This is one that I really hope my family can pick up! You can almost guarantee that there are new movies in theaters around this time every year. Pick one and get out with the people closest to you. This is a good way to break up the day if you are in a relationship. You can do breakfast or dinner with one family and a movie with the other. Ideas people, ideas.

4.       Christmas Eve Annual Party

My family makes this a thing. It’s big for us. We rent out a venue and everyone brings a dish. We play games, have crafts for the kids, do karaoke, and of course we eat! It’s so much fun to get dressed up for the holidays. If you don’t want it to be a dressy thing, you could make it an ugly sweater party- ugliest sweater gets a prize! This is great because it leaves Christmas as an open day to relax.




5.       Family Volunteering

Here is another one that I really hope my family can get into more often! If you happen to have your big event on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning, all of the family could volunteer to serve food at a homeless shelter for Christmas dinner. Another great idea is to have the kids choose a few of their old toys to donate and drop off the bags of toys together. I think this reinforces the idea that Christmas truly is about love and giving back, not receiving. 

6.       Christmas Eve Slumber Party

Everyone gets in their comfiest pajamas, we pop some popcorn, we make some cocoa and we watch movies and just enjoy each other’s company. This is such a fun thing to do! We all sleep downstairs in the living room and wake up early to open up gifts. 

7.       Caroling

This is one that you could do with friends and family. Send out an e-mail with the words to a few of your favorite Carols and then get together and go caroling in your neighborhood. Afterwards, treat the group to some hot cocoa. This is especially fun for the little ones and it costs nothing!

8.       See the lights!

Here in Colorado, there are the zoo lights that you can attend every year. But you don’t need some great display! Just look up neighborhoods with the best lights up, hop in the car, and take a drive! Put on some Christmas tunes and enjoy!

I hope this gave you some ideas on how to make this Christmas one to remember! Let me know in the comments if you plan on trying one or if you have your own that you love! Also, please subscribe and join us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/lunachicks.org! I hope this helps J
As always with love,
