A Simple Christmas Tradition
My earliest memories of Christmas are very simple. One thing my parents were always great at was creating memories with us that didn't actually cost a lot of money. We would watch the rainstorms from our garage, play board games, take walks together (rain or shine), and from Thanksgiving to sometime in January we would all hop in the car and drive around the neighborhood looking at Christmas lights and listening to Christmas music.
My kids love the lights, whether their on our tree or the house across the street, so we've carried on this tradition. It's such a simple and creative way to entertain the kids for an hour or two without spending any money - unless you decide to treat yourself to a latte like I often do! :)
