Thrifty Christmas - Part 11

Earlier today I was thinking about all the fun things we did in our family for Christmas. Some of them were thrifty some of them not so much. But either way, we did have a lot of fun during the Christmas season.

Here are some of the fun things I remember doing as a child that did not cost a lot of money.

  • We would sting popcorn for our tree.
  • We would all help with making and decorating the cookies.
  • Christmas Eve we would watch holiday movies, play games and eat lots of homemade goodies until it was time to leave for Midnight Mass.
  • Play in the snow (a lot) with our cousins.
  • Help wrap gifts.
  • Go ice skating.
  • Read lots of Christmas themed books while eating popcorn.
  • Cuddling by the fire.

I hope that some of these ideas help to give your family the same warm memories I have from my childhood.

What are some of the traditions that you hope to carry on with your own kids, grandchildren or nieces/nephews?
