Here Are Some Family Christmas Traditions That Bring Families Close Together

         Everyone has there own traditions of their own that brought them closer as a family. There are different types of traditions which include decorating the tree together while listening to Christmas music, picking out a tree together as a family while drinking hot cider, and watching Christmas movies through the month of December.

         First you will want to pick out your Christmas tree. When you go to get a real tree, the best tips  are to find a tree that is full and to find a tree that has no branches at the bottom of it. That way when you cut it down, it will not be lop sided and crooked. While you are at the Christmas tree farm, it is a good idea to always get a cup of hot apple cider. That way while you are looking for the perfect Christmas tree, you will warm up with this hot drink. And do not forget to get a candy cane, if they have any, before you leave. Picking out a tree together brings you closer together because you work as a family to find that perfect tree you all agree on.

         Next, you will want to decorate the tree. But first you have to put it up when you get home. While you are decorating the Christmas tree, listening to Christmas music while you put up the ornaments will start to put you in a Christmas mood. It is always a great idea to have a different person put the tree topper on the tree every year. That way every one has a chance to do it.  It is not a bad idea to hang up ornaments that you made when you where a child. You get to reminisce about the past and start to remember when and where you did it. Memories always bring families closer together because you laugh and you can cry depending on the memories. They could be tears of joy and happiness.

         The last thing you do that very same day is to start watching Christmas movies together that night. Watching Christmas movies will help you get further into the Christmas spirit and will help your family to get to know your taste in movies. When you get to know each other, that will bring you closer together as a family.

         Families doing traditions like these bring families closer together because you work as a team and it helps to build that relationship.
