Christmas is my favorite time of year!
There is something truly magical about this Season that I just fall in love with. It represents so much; family, our Savior’s birth, togetherness and giving.
Each year we purpose out of our busy schedule to do one activity a day as a family. Some years are more hectic than others, so we repeat some of the activities, like the craft, game or movie night. The point is to just do something…..anything, focusing on the idea of being together. When my youngest was just born I actually made this huge calendar with construction paper, envelopes, and glitter. I then filled each envelope with an activity. As you can see it has been well loved through the years, and is one of my kids favorite Christmas traditions.
