Creating Christmas Traditions

One custom that is easy to maintain every year is the traditional Christmas meal. Try keeping the main dish and a few special side dishes the same each year, while adding variety elsewhere. Ask members of the family to contribute the same dish each year and make it a staple on your table, like Aunt Alice's Famous Maple Snickerdoodles and Uncle John's Orange-Candied Sweet Potatoes.

It's fun for the kids when you include them in choosing and making food for the holidays. Make a tradition out of it and give your children the freedom to choose one item to make each year. To teach them the spirit of giving, make gifting homemade cookies to neighbors or the elderly part of your annual Christmas celebration.
