Now that the holiday season is quickly approaching, we wanted to cover some basics of what families can do to enjoy Christmas morning with a new holiday tradition. Below you’ll find some of our favorite Christmas traditions that any family can enjoy on Christmas morning with their kids and spouse no matter the weather outside.
Christmas Breakfast in Bed
One of our favorites, which can be done with minimal effort, is making each family member’s breakfast and bringing it to them in bed. This doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll need to make a gourmet meal but if your kids like pancakes or waffles, why not surprise them one morning by putting a little extra love in their breakfast with sprinkles or chocolate syrup?
Pajamas in December
Who doesn’t love a little pampering in the morning before the rush and stress of Christmas gifts and Santa? With this tradition, anyone can go out and purchase new pajamas or buy some for someone they’ll be spending the holiday season with. Then simply set a day so everyone can wear their pajamas all day long to breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Christmas books with hot cocoa or tea by the tree
It’s no secret that an ideal way to spend any cold December morning is with a cup of hot chocolate and the warmth of a fire. With this simple tradition, you can curl up by the tree with your family after breakfast and read some Christmas books. The only downside is that it’s over much too quickly!
Christmas Eve stockings for kids
Although it may be hard to get children excited about being in bed before Santa comes, if you have younger kids who are still up for it, you can create a fun Christmas Eve tradition by filling their stockings before they go to bed. If you’re able, even include some chocolate gold coins in their stockings (chocolate tastes better than coal and they will be more excited about waking up with them on Christmas morning!)
Caroling is not only a holiday tradition but it’s one that brings family together. It can be competitive, trying to see who can sing the loudest or harmony-focused with everyone singing every other line. Either way, caroling is an activity where anyone in the family can participate and have fun while you are all spending quality time together.
Christmas Breakfast for Dinner
If you have a night before Christmas where you know you won’t want to wake up early, why not make it a tradition to have breakfast for dinner? For those who are gluten-free or don’t eat pork, this is especially ideal because breakfast food tends to be lighter and healthier.
In conclusion, the holiday season is a special time that families spend together, so why not create some traditions that can be done year after year? Enjoying Christmas morning is one of the most wonderful parts of the holidays, so don’t forget to take advantage of this beautiful time spent with loved ones!
