Every family has their own Yuletide traditions they look forward to bringing back each year. In my house that means playing board games on Christmas Eve and watching our favorite classic holidayfilm,A Christmas Story.
That said, there are some universal customs that we all look forward toas we count down to December 25th. Whether it’s hitting the mall to visit Saint Nick himself or just enjoying the decor surrounding you on the streets, the world justfeels a little cheerieraround this time of year.
Unfortunately, some of the most beloved past times have become, well, things of the past with modern practices taking their place. It’s a shame considering most of these forgotten traditions revolve around spending more quality time with your family.
Take a look to see what you and yourloved ones can do this year to embrace the charm from holidays of the past.
