Simple Holiday Traditions

The holidays are upon us, and that means a lot of us moms are extra busy. With shopping for presents, planning a holiday menu, grocery shopping, prepping our houses for guests and of course creating all the holiday magic for our little ones, it is easy to let the hustle and bustle of the season overwhelm us. However, I don’t want January 1st to strike as I look back realizing I didn’t make the most of this special time of year with my family. So, this year, I am making an effort to take more time to slow down and make family memories even out of the simplest holiday traditions.

My 5 Favorite Simple Holiday Traditions:

Decorating the Tree
Baking Christmas Cookies
Diving around to Look at Christmas Lights
Writing Letters to Santa
Family Movie Nights

Having a family movie night around the Christmas tree has to be my absolute favorite way to spend time during the holiday season. It’s a laid-back way to get everyone in the house together and in the holiday spirit. As a child, I remember watching holiday movies with my Nana, as we would curl up and eat a bowl of Cheerios on the couch. The traditions I had with my Nana are close to my heart plus they are some of the simplest yet most meaningful, so I have made sure to continue them with my own children. This year we have been doing it while enjoying one of our favorite cereals, Cheerios, with a new yummy twist! Walmart now has Maple Cheerios!

Maple Cheerios!

What better way to add to your holiday fun than with a bowl of Cheerios that are sweetened with real maple syrup! I have been stocking up on these family size boxes of gluten-free deliciousness during every trip to Walmart because my family of 5 has been loving Maple Cheerios for breakfast, school snacks, and of course during our movie nights.

Another Cheerio flavor my family has been eating up is Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios, these are perfect when you want something a little sweeter.

  4. When I was younger I remember we would always go to a friends house for NYE. It was such a fun time. Us kids would listen to the music countdown of the year, while the parents were downstairs enjoying adult time. Then right before 12 we would all get together and have a big toast. It was just fun.
