5 Ways to Share Your Childhood Christmas Memories with Your Family.

November 11, 2018 2 min read

With Christmas just around the corner, we are just itching to start our annual family tradition of pajama Christmas movie marathons!

Christmas movies have always had a special place in our hearts and have taught us things like the importance of family over work (Elf) orensuring to always have the “hap, hap, happiest Christmas” - Clark (National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation). With so many Christmas movies to choose from, it’s never too early to start.

Here are 5 great ways to share your childhood Christmas memories with your family.

1. Show them your favorite winter activities

Christmas is a time filled with plenty of joy, laughter, and happiness, especially for children. Whether it’s simply building a snowman in your backyard or taking a ride up to the old winter cabin, sharing your favorite winter activities with your kids is a great way to give them a glimpse into your special childhood memories.

2. Pick a Christmas tree together

Nothing symbolizes the beginning of Christmas quite like picking out a Christmas tree. This simple, yet meaningful task is always a great way to kick off the holiday season together as a family.

3. Decorate the house

Decorating your house is a great way to bring the family together to add a magical touch to the holidays. Besides Christmas isn’t quite Christmas without them! Bring out old ornaments and get everyone together to take part in the magic of making Christmas what it is.

4. Recreate Christmas Recipes Together

Remember when you helped grandma make some goodies for Christmas dinner? Well, now you can share those memories with your children! Whether you’re re-creating old dishes or starting new ones together as a family, get together and make family traditions come to life in the kitchen!

5. Watch Classic Christmas Movies

It’s no secret we absolutely adore Christmas movies here at IndieKIDS! Sharing a movie on a comfy couch filled with the people that we love with hot chocolate in hand is one of our all-time favorite Christmas traditions to share with our family.

Each week from now until Christmas we'll be sharing our beloved Christmas classics with you and the lessons we’ve taken from them. These movies hold a special place in our hearts which is why indieKIDS has made matching shirts for all our favorite Christmas movies to help make these moments even more special!
