Everything you need to do on Christmas with Kids !!

Jingle bells are all set to be hung on the Christmas trees, their chimes can be heard when the breeze blows. Snowflakes will cover the rooftop and floor of the houses because it is going to be super cold on Christmas day.As a Convent school student, Christmas was always special for me.We had crib making competition,carol singing, Christmas plays . For an entire week ,there were no studies,the entire school was decorated and massive preparations a month before. At home also I decorated the Christmas tree, the stockings and my parents used to keep chocolates inside the stocking.For a very long time, I believed that Santa used to actually fill it and brought gifts for me in the night.

5 Essential Christmas traditions to follow

 

Here are some Christmas traditions to follow as a family

Decorate the Tree together

Decorating a Christmas Tree with all sorts of stuff like the orchids, bells, balls, ribbons, small gifts, trees and of course lights!!Put the Christmas carols and enjoy adding ornaments to the tree to make it look the best.

Bake the Christmas cake

Christmas Cake is the most important Christmas Tradition to follow. The dark , rich, fruity cake bursting with flavours and spice is the most recommended one.Icing it with icing sugar make tree or stars on top just to give a good presentation. A lot of Nuts and Chocolates for the kids, Well!! To spoil them completely with food, gifts and games, friends , nuts and chocolates are just some add-ons, isn’t it?? Some Cheese, cookies, crackers are also worth mentioning .

Hang the stockings

You can create your own stockings or buy them from the market but hanging them the night before is a must. Fill in them a whole lot of stuff for kids like a small puzzle set, lego , hot wheel cars,yo-yo, crayons set,a fun toothbrush etc. My parents always did this for me and this is the first year I would be doing it for Nirvik, really excited about it.

  1. Thanks for sharing all that you consider wonderful about Christmas. It’s not unlike our North American Christmases. And it sounds like you’ve never lost that ‘magical’ feeling about Christmas.

    • Oh!!Thats wonderful…i always wish i celebrate Christmas with my American friends just to see is it different with what we do here in India, but thanks for sharing the insight 🙂
      Have a great day 🙂

  2. I also still have to decide the gifts for my family. I got late this time as was tied up with some things. Although my girls are grown up now and know that santa is not real, they still expect gifts from us. Today only I took out the christmas tree for them to decorate. Thanks a lot Richa for writing for #MondayMommyMoments. 🙂
