Blog ~ News and Updates on Hearndon Homes

November 27th, 2018

The holidays are all about Family and Friends and the merriment and enjoyment of the holidays is even greater when we reenact a ritual with those we love. While some family Christmas traditions remain the same year after year, it’s never too late to start a new tradition with family and friends. This holiday season, make new memories and start a few fresh family traditions that you’ll look forward to year after year.

Bake Cookies
Baking cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve is a tradition many families hold dear, but cookies are perfect anytime during the holidays. Bake cookies for friends and family and store them in decorative tins—they are tasty gifts to send home with guests and holiday visitors. Make it a family affair, and enlist the kids’ help with baking and decorating gingerbread cookies.

Hang an Annual Ornament
Purchase or let kids craft an ornament each year. You’ll be able to look back on every holiday that your family has spent together, and the tree will be filled with heirlooms that you can pass on to your kids for their future trees.

Donate Toys
To make way for the presents Santa will bring and help children understand the importance of generosity, donate toys to an organization in your community that is collecting during the holiday season.

Give Back
Volunteer as a family at your community’s food bank this season, or find another opportunity in your town to give back together.

Have a Hot Cocoa and S’mores Night
Don’t forget the marshmallows! If it’s a cold December night, light a fire in the chimney, grab a mug of hot chocolate, and make a pile of s’mores in the kitchen.

See the Holiday Lights
Step one: Bundle up and pile in the car. Step two: Drive around town to look at the houses covered in holiday lights. Step three: Ooh and aah.

Wear Matching Pajamas
For the whole family, of course. It’s a photo op waiting to happen.
