Blogmas Day 13: Christmas Traditions 🎄

Hey my friends!

I cannot believe we are two weeks away from Christmas. Are you ready? I’m not. Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. When I think about this time of the year, I think about certain traditions that I don’t necessarily follow, but I know people that follow just about every one of them.

Of course it’s a tradition to have a Christmas tree in your home. Are you a fake tree or real tree lover? I personally love a fake tree. I grew up with a fake tree and as an adult I favor a fake tree as well. I just cannot get into the maintainance of a real tree, but we can talk about in another blogmas post.

Eggnog

Eggnog is a definite must have for Christmas. It screams tradition for me.

Mistletoe

Ok, so I don’t follow this tradition, but I definitely think it is a cute one.

Gingerbread House

I love the whole tradition of making a gingerbread house with your children. God willing, I will be blessed to have a child to start this tradition with.

Christmas Carols

Ok so I don’t know about you, but I love singing Christmas songs right after Thanksgiving all the way through Christmas day. My radio station in my car is set to the Christmas station.

What are some of the traditions that are a must for your Christmas season?

Blogmas Day 12: Make Your Christmas Day Special!

Hey my friends!

What will you be doing this Christmas holiday? With travel restrictions and the limitations on gatherings, we need to find some activities that will still make it a fun and memorable day.

Here is what you can do for a low-key Christmas day:

Get dressed for the occasion and have dinner

What do I mean you might ask? Just because you’re staying home with either one other person or your significant other and/or children, doesn’t mean you can’t get dress in your Christmas outfit you would have normally worn if it was a huge family gathering. Let me tell you, getting dressed makes you feel so much better than just sitting around in loungewear.

Sit at the dining room table

Create a beautiful table landscape for your Christmas dinner. Don’t just have dinner and sit in the family room watching tv.

Dessert Time

After you’re done with dinner, let’s change into our matching loungewear and make a fun dessert everyone can participate in.

The dessert doesn’t have to be anything complicated. You can create gingerbread ice cream sandwiches. You can make the cookie from scratch or use store bought cookie dough.

You can also simply create an ice cream sundae bar using all the traditional flavors of Christmas such as gingerbread, cinammon, peppermint, etc;

Whatever you do this Holiday Season, stay healthy and safe 💋
