i like to take my kids out to look at the christmas lights. this is my "thing" i like to do ever year. hubby doesn't always come (not his thing?!)although he did enjoy watching their little faces light up and hearing their comments and questions last year. the kids and i have a great time! i've always loved looking at the light displays, but it's so much fun to watch and listen to my little ones! i'm not sure about where you live, but it doesn't get dark around here until a LOT later in the summer, so i did find, and do find, that the ones 2 & under haven't exactly "lasted", but they still get to see 'some'.
i've also started our own little family tradition, where i let them choose a small tree decoration each year, and also we make one each together. the kids have so much fun and it can be so simple!...on my eldest's 1st christmas, i made "footprint angels". i placed his footprint centrally facing downwards (to make the body) and then again, at angles from the sides at the heel, to make the wings (i hope this makes sense!) then i drew around them and added bits with a pen and even glitter.... but there are plenty of things that you can make, just let your imagination run wild!!!
anyway, i hope i've helped! let us know what you decide to make "your" family christmas traditions...? wink
