The Championship Fathering blog by Carey Casey
Growing up, a Casey family Christmas tradition always happened early in December…
That’s one of my cherished holiday memories. What about you? Were there things you did each year? And maybe some you’ve continued with your kids? Please share either below or at our Facebook page.
Traditions help to make family time special, and that’s really true during holidays. So make sure and celebrate those traditions that are unique to your family Tweet this! , whether they involve Christmas cards or not. And I would add a suggestion based on my experiences:
Find some traditions that build togetherness and that will allow your family to work as a team. Maybe going to a Christmas tree farm. Trimming the tree. Wrapping gifts for a needy family. Maybe your town or neighborhood has some family-oriented activities. Get everyone involved. Don’t forget all the Christmas music and snacks associated with this time of year.
And then let us know about your family’s teamwork, togetherness and traditions.
