New Holiday Traditions It's never to late to start a new tradition especially with your family. Traditions make you feel a part of something special, they create memories and make a connection to the past. Our family started a new tradition three years ago and now we look forward to it every year. We create a decoration each Christmas. The fun part is deciding what to make and then spending the time together creating it. Its always those handmade decorations you save forever or at least until they fall apart.
