The Holidays are all about tradition, and about spending time with those you love. And while traditions rooted in the past are comforting, that doesn’t mean they always have to stay the same. It’s never too late to introduce a new Christmas tradition to the holiday season, and these are just a few ideas for traditions your family will love during the Holidays.
Cut Down a Christmas Tree
Who among us doesn’t have fond memories of trudging out into a snowy field with dad and his trusty bow saw in search of the perfect Christmas tree? Or listening to our fathers curse under their breath while attempting to tie the chosen tree tree to the roof of the car? Anybody?
In all seriousness, cutting down a Christmas tree is half nostalgic tradition and half maddening chore, but we’ve never met anyone who regretted it. There really is something about it that makes Christmas more special. Kids love getting to pick out a tree, and at the very least it will provide great family memories and a good laugh or two further down the road. And there’s nothing like that fresh-cut-tree smell.
