*I remember myself as a grumpy teenager who didn’t feel like decorating the tree anymore, but hopefully your children will be different!
Baking? Crafts? Candles? Decorating?
Christmas is so much more than just “Santa”. It’s about transmitting our favourite childhood traditions and making new ones.
Watch the video below, shot in 2017, and try to picture these small kids now. I don’t know about you, but it makes me emotional. I know for a fact that these photos are treasured now even more than when they first saw them.
Don’t wait to document these traditions if they’re important to you.
I’m a big Christmas lover and get excited as much as the kids. I’ve been known to make my mum’s Christmas pudding as early as October. I love the excitement and joy it brings to the kids and the constant chatter of what Santa is going to bring.
I love the cosiness and the magic of Christmas lights and candles. I can’t wait to share the excitement with my daughter this year.
I love everything about Christmas. Christmas music and dancing around the kitchen to it with the girls, baking with the girls, Christmas shopping…
I love it all. The cosiness, the spices, the baking, the decorating. We don’t have very put-together themes, we have decorations made by the children or collected by us. We bake gingerbread cookies and cakes and make mulled apple juice.
If those moments are precious to you now, think about what they’ll mean to your children someday.
