Let’s Chat Christmas Traditions!
On this episode of the Memories and Moments podcast I’m sharing my 5 Favorite Christmas Traditions (spoiler alert they are super easy and barely require prep!). I am also addressing why I value creating memories and traditions with my family so much. I was asked the question, “why bother if they won’t remember or show they care anyway?” and it made me stop and think through some of these things. I kept coming back to, they are listening and they are remembering even if they don’t know how to show it yet. I can ask Evie about something we did and she’ll tell me all about it…even if I remember it being a bust. She has excitment in her voice and that’s what matters to me. In no way am I doing these things and making memories a priority to prove something to someone. The experiences and moments I think of and create give me joy, and they bring my family joy, and that’s important to me. I want them to look back and be proud of their childhoods and of their mom who did what she could in the time that she had to make it magical for them.
So my advice is to start. Just try something and see what happens. Do it again, and you’ve got yourself a tradition. It’s that simple. Challenge, accepted!
