This isn't a list of the exact ways we celebrate, but more of a list of holidays or celebrations we can develop traditions for. It was a good starting point as we discussed as a family and as a couple what traditions we want to incorporate into our family life.
In addition to the month-by-month traditions, I love the less calendar scheduled traditions, the books before bed time, the weekly family nights on Monday nights, the family culture nights.
What traditions does your family enjoy?
