I’m always really interested to learn how other people celebrate Christmas. The build up for some people is massive and for others it is ‘just another day’. Each to their own, and all that!
In the spirit of being festive I have spoke to a load of lovely bloggers to find out about their Christmas traditions. I’m going to be sharing a number of different Christmas traditions with you – I hope I give somebody some inspiration!
New Christmas pyjamas for the kids. We’ve made it a tradition now. (I say we, it’s all me!) – Pink Pear Bear
A letter to Father Christmas – Real Mum Review
Every year we visit a beautiful local garden centre and choose one new bauble each, our tree might be mismatched but we love this tradition – Adventures In Websterland
I love making popcorn garlands (they can be put outside for the birds too) to hang on the tree – Mummy & Moose
We always go ice skating! So many lovely rinks to choose from in London, but Somerset House is our favourite. – Truly Madly Kids
Our favourite tradition is ‘Christmas tree day’. My son’s birthday is 23rd December so we don’t do Christmas Eve boxes but on the 1st we put up the tree and have a festive breakfast, everyone gets a box with Xmas clothes, PJS, books, toys and treats for the festive season – and advent calendars. Then we play Christmas music and dress up in Xmas clothes to put up the tree. When the house is decorated we all cuddle up to watch the Polar Express with a hot chocolate. – Nomipalony
We collect a new Christmas tree decoration that summarizes the year – Adventures of Adam
We always head off ‘on a quest to find snow’ the evening that the kids break up for their Christmas Hols … we load the dogs, children and luggage in the car, drive through the EuroTunnel and head for the Alps, or Black Forest – somewhere with Christmas markets, and enough snow to make a snowman. Then we return home in time for Christmas Eve … we always watch Polar Express in our PJs, drink hot chocolate, wear new PJs and slippers, and cuddle up under cosy blankets. Then we send them to bed and we get the port out! – Kidz Cruises
I have really enjoyed hearing about lots of different Christmas traditions. For me, it would have to be placing the star on top of the Christmas tree with my husband. We listen to our Top 10 Christmas songs and it always feels so festive and special.
