The holidays are here and I’m sharing some fun ideas for Christmas. Nothing is more amazing than seeing the spark of awe and excitement on a child’s face as they rush downstairs to see what Santa has brought!  Memories of Christmas morning from my childhood are some of my most favorite… opening presents, stockings stuffed with trinkets,  posing for pictures with all my shiny new toys.  Make your children’s Christmas mornings even more memorable by creating a Christmas tradition like matching holiday pajamas, letters from Santa, Christmas themed breakfast pancakes…. anything that your kids will love and think of as they grow older and one day share with children of their own.

Ideas for Christmas

Christmas traditions make the holidays even more special. What traditions do you celebrate with your family? Here are a few holiday traditions we love……

  • Wear your Christmas pajamas. Matching family pajamas are fun for the holidays and make for great family holiday pictures
  • Stockings first. Start with opening your stockings to see what small surprises Santa has brung. Checkout our list of stocking stuffer ideas 
  • Christmas breakfast. Waking up to the smell of cinnamon rolls in the oven is one of my favorite childhood memories. Whether it’s pancakes and bacon, waffles or whatever your family loves, create a memory with starting Christmas morning off with a special breakfast.
  • Note from Santa. My kids love finding a surprise from Santa by the cookie crumbs and empty milk glass.
  • Morning prayer. Start Christmas morning off with a prayer to give thanks and remember what Christmas is truly all about.
