Don’t you LOVE holiday traditions? Christmas is filled with family traditions like taking pictures with Santa, decorating the Christmas tree, making sugar cookies, and viewing holiday lights. We just did the last one last night! We drove around and walked with some friends to look at all the elaborate light displays. After we came home I started thinking about what a nice tradition it is to enjoy the lights as a family and how I can play up the event next year with some fun Christmas Light activities! I think these would be great to do throughout the week that you plan on going out to build up some anticipation of the traditional event 🙂
