Kids like the newest fad, newest Wii game, newest music CD, newest popular book and so on. However, when it comes to traditions like Christmas, kids want to carry on favorite family traditions like cutting their own Christmas tree and putting the angel on top, hanging their favorite ornaments, polishing grandma’s menorah, caroling with family and friends, or hanging up their old stocking. Traditions remind us that there are some things in life that are meant to last.
This year, continue your favorite family traditions and challenge your kids to come up with a new one as part of your homechool curricula. Tell them to write down their idea and include why it should be a new holiday tradition. As a family, vote to see what the new tradition will be.
