There are a few holiday traditions that we hold dear in the Correale household. As a parent of four kids, I saved all of their hand-made ornaments and holiday items and pulled them out each holiday to decorate the Christmas tree. Even though all my children are grown, they love to look at the crafts and remember each one of them.
As next week is Thanksgiving, I wanted to check in with you and hear about your family’s holiday traditions. As a family of six, we never lived near relatives, and we created our own. All my children are grown and scattered, and we are fortunate that we still enjoy engaging in family togetherness. We participate in activities where we are spending time together at home. We play games, laugh, do puzzles, watch a movie, and eat a lot together! I also like to use the time after Thanksgiving to set up the house for the Christmas holiday; this ensures that my kids are involved and that I have help, a double bonus!
