Christmas traditions to start this year


With Christmas around the corner I have put together a list of traditions that you may want to start with your family this December that you can carry on throughout the years. Christmas is by far my favourite time of year and having children makes it even more magical. I hope your all having a great December so far 🙂

  • Putting the Christmas tree up as a family – There is no better tradition to get into the Christmas spirit and make memories with your loved ones than all decorating the tree together.
  • Make gingerbread houses.
