Family Traditions

This time of year, I start reminiscing on the fall and winter traditions we have.

In October, we celebrate birthdays. We dress up on Halloween. We carve pumpkins. Some years, we go trick-or-treating, other years, we go to fall festivals. But, we always dress up on Halloween.

In November and December, we celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas. No matter where we are, or who we are celebrating with, we always try to do something fun together, as a family. A lot of times, this includes glow stick dance parties at night. Or just extra family movie nights, watching holiday movies.

I’ve learned that no matter what- it’s important to add in some fun!

What are some holidays you celebrate? What traditions do you have?
