Whether it’s an annual holiday party or decorating to get in the spirit of the season, holiday traditions are a great way to bring the family together and spend quality time with friends and loved ones. We cherish the fond memories of our annual traditions, but there’s nothing more fun than making new ones.

What Makes Holiday Traditions Important?
Holiday traditions are more than just about bringing people together, they represent a part of what makes you and your family special. Creating new traditions means celebrating what’s important to you and what brings everyone together for the holidays. So if you’re looking for new traditions that will create long-lasting holiday memories, try one of these great ideas.
Baking Holiday Treats
Nothing brings everyone together like the intoxicating smell of fresh holiday cookies straight from the oven. Since the kitchen is a natural gathering spot, it’s the perfect place to start something new with your family. Baking cookies is a great activity for all ages and with an easy to make, versatile dough you can create everything from candy canes to ginger bread people. You can even let everyone show their holiday spirit by decorating their own cookies.
Enjoy Holiday Lights
Holiday lights make the season merry and bright, and admiring all the ways people celebrate the season is a great way to enjoy the festive spirit. So pile everyone into the car, turn on your favorite holiday songs, and find your favorite displays. For an added treat, bring along hot cocoa or cider to sip on while you enjoy the lights.
Hold a Holiday Party
The holidays are about celebrating the spirit of giving and bringing people together, and there’s no better way to show friends and loved ones how important they are than with a holiday party. Have everyone bring a dish by hosting a holiday potluck, that way friends and family get the opportunity to share their traditions with others to enjoy. With everything from appetizers to desserts, there’s plenty of options to explore to make sure your party spreads plenty of holiday cheer.
