Christmas is coming. My sons are so excited, and so am I. I love Christmas – the decorations, the carols, the family time, the traditions, the food…everything that makes this festive time of the year so magical. I love giving and receiving presents, but I want my children to grow up knowing that Christmas isn’t just about presents and Santa.
I’m not doing a big PR Christmas giveaway and I’m not going to tell you what the must-have toys are going to be this year. I can’t think of a list of things I’d like to find under my Christmas tree, because I have everything I want and need already.
I’ve been wracking my brains to come up with a tradition to start with my kids that they will always remember. I’ve read lots of lovely ideas online and I’m going to pinch plenty of them because I want our family Christmases to be filled with quirky things that create our own unique family Christmas. But I’ve decided to start a very special tradition this year that I hope will encourage my kids to grow into thoughtful, caring adults.
