New Holiday Traditions to Start This Year

While your family likely already has some favorite traditions, it’s always fun to do something new and different. Why not start a new holiday tradition for some extra fun this year? Here are a few fun traditions that you may want to start doing this holiday season.

Holiday Caroling with Friends and Family
The music of the season is so much fun, so consider adding it to your holiday by doing some caroling with friends and family. Have a caroling party and gather around the tree or your piano to sing together or consider going out through your neighborhood or a local nursing home to spread some cheer through holiday songs.

White Elephant Gift Giving
Make it tons of fun by coming up with a fun twist to a white elephant exchange. For example, have everyone buy a funny gift to exchange. Another idea is to have everyone wrap something they already own so no one spends money. Make the focus on fun instead of spending money with this new tradition.

Cookie Baking Party
Another fun holiday tradition you may want to start this year is a cookie baking party. Get everyone together, bake up as many cookies as you can, and then split up the cookies. It’s a great way to increase the variation in holiday cookies, and it’s tons of fun when you’re all doing it together.

Secret Santa for a Family in Need
Do you know a family in your community that could use a little help this holiday season? Why not start a tradition of giving? Gift cards, food, and toys are all great gifts to know. If you know them well, you can be more personal in the gift choices. Have someone they don’t know drop off the gifts and enjoying doing a random act of kindness. It’s also a great way to teach your kids or grandkids about the magic of giving during the holidays.

Traditions are so much fun, and they foster togetherness during this wonderful time of year. Try one of these new traditions this holiday season, or let us know about your favorite holiday tradition.
