12 Days of Christmas - Day Nine

On the ninth day of Christmas, The Costa Group shares with thee: 9 holiday traditions you can start this year.

If you’re anything like me, your fondest memories of the holiday season aren’t the gifts you received when you were a kid, they’re the memories of the fun things you did with your loved ones.

Holiday traditions have been shown to be more memorable than gifts as people grow up. Not to say that your children won’t forever love and appreciate that sweet iPad you got them last year, but if you want to give them great memories that will last a lifetime, the experiences you share together are your best bet.

Whether you need a few great activities to begin with your family, or you’re just looking for a new one, we’ve got you covered. Here are 9 holiday traditions you can start this year:

  • Watch a holiday movie
  • Plan a special meal
  • Take a family picture
  • Bake cookies
  • Feed Santa’s reindeer
  • Pick out a tree
  • Wear matching pajamas
  • Donate toys
  • Have a wrapping paper tube sword fight

Now get out there and make some memories!
