I am curious to know if your family has any holiday traditions for Thanksgiving or Christmas. I’ve always wanted to gather different traditions from different families just to learn what they do and why they do it. We have a tradition where starting in January we keep this mason jar and write down great things that happened to us throughout the year, fold it up and drop it in the jar. Then on New Year’s eve, we read all of the great things from the year. We started this a few years ago and it really reminds us of the important things that happened that maybe we didn’t remember even happened that year. It also made us grateful to reflect back on the good things.
I’ve heard of families getting together every year to chop down a Christmas tree on the eldest member cutting the turkey first on Thanksgiving. Please share what your family traditions are.
