Weeks 13 & 14: Family Traditions & New Years
[ ] Holiday Reflections – Before we get into some fun family tradition ideas for the next two weeks, take some time to sit down and fill out the Holiday Reflections form provided. While it is still fresh in your mind, write down your thoughts about the holiday season. Keep this in your notebook so you can look it over when you begin your holiday planning next year!
[ ] After Christmas Family Tradition Ideas – Following the Holiday Reflections form, you will find lots of neat ideas for creating some meaningful family traditions during the two weeks following Christmas. We realize that this section may not apply to those that travel over the holidays, but we wanted to provide some ideas to bridge the gap between Christmas and getting back into your regular schedule in the New Year. While all of these ideas may not be spiritual in nature, they do provide a way to build relationships as a family and some memories that will last a lifetime. I have provided a form you can use to schedule some “Family Traditions” during the two weeks following Christmas Day. I have also included a divider page that you can keep all your “Family Traditions” ideas and plans behind in your notebook. Enjoy!
Accountability: Once you have completed this list, come back here and tell us about it! Let’s encourage each other to plug away at these “to do’s” now so that our holidays can be less stressful and more focused on Jesus!
This post concludes the Countdown to Christmas series. I pray it has been a blessing to you as you prepared for and enjoyed the holidays with family and friends.
