One of the neatest things for my husband and I as we've started to have children (an 19-month old and one on the way) is creating our own family traditions. Before kids, we always ended up going to one of our parents' houses, joining in their family celebration. While we both enjoyed being with our respective families, we've entered a new phase: staying at our home and beginning our own traditions.
We're not sure exactly what those will be, or what we want to do, but the very idea of deciding for ourselves how to celebrate (in our case, Christmas) is a novel one. So far we haven't nailed too much down, but each year we add something, taking ideas from our parents and coming up with our own. Is anyone else enjoying the freedom to establish new holiday traditions this year?
