Day 12 – Decorate and Enjoy!

by StephBuckwalter on December 15, 2012

Although it can be a chore, there’s something special about decorating for the holidays. No matter what your family does for the holidays, you can intentionally reinforce the family traditions you grew up with or create some of your own.

Christmas Decor

Here are some ways to create special memories for the Christmas holiday:

  • Decorate the whole house with one theme.
  • Buy special ornaments one year with each person’s name or the year.
  • Make homemade ornaments.
  • Make homemade gifts for each other one year.
  • Bake together.
  • Work through an Advent Calendar.
  • Work at a food shelter in the days leading up to Christmas.
  • Use your strings of lights in a completely new way this year.
  • Drape string along a wall and hang your Christmas cards on the string for all to see.
  • Design a special combination of spices and nature items to create a signature holiday potpourri.

There are so many more things you can do to decorate and create memories. Let your imagination soar. The important thing is to do things with each other and for others.
