Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year when everyone is decked up with high spirit and enthusiasm. It is not just about the festival but the excitement of the New Year adds on to the realm. And to top it up, if you are recently married then there is much more a reason to celebrate and enjoy your togetherness. For a magical tint to the occasion, we have listed here 7 ways to make the most of occasion and start new family traditions of your own.
1) Carry forward family traditions
Its the best time to relive your childhood fantasies. Recall all those things that made Christmas special for you as child and find ways to twine them into your adult lives. It could be decorating your house with your favorite stuffs, preparing all the junk food that you would love to have but would refrain on a regular basis and restrict to just a few important occasions or watching out your favorite movie.
2) Start your own customs
Following age old traditions in your family is fun, but since you are starting your own family and creating your own new home, it is a nice idea to pick a few things that you can put into practice every year creating a tradition of your own. It could be as small as opening a secret gift on Christmas Eve to making a special meal of something that you two would enjoy as a couple.
3) Reorganize your memories
With the year-end approaching, it’s a great time to have a look back on how the year went by! Celebrate it, get your memories printed in photos, frame them and hang it around the places where you can cherish them and let them speak a story of yours that was created during the year.
4) Sing a Carol
You might not be an expert singer to be a part of the carol team, but singing old holiday carols in the comfort of your own living room has its own charm. This can be a part of your own tradition list, adding some romance to your life.
5) Plan your “WE” time
It can sometimes be a little tough to prioritize your relationship amidst all the festivities, family gatherings and celebrations. Make sure to set aside some time that’s for just the two of you, when you can reconnect without distractions, recollect on the past year, and plan together for the coming year.
6) Be crazy in your clicks
Surely you would love to pose as a perfect couple in all your clicks, but clicking a few goofy pics that are more humorous will bring a smile on your face year after year at every glance. Let your humorous and lighter side reflect through your pics to cherish forever.
7) Plan your travel and family commitments
In case you are travelling to celebrate your Christmas with your loved ones, you can still plan your personal time. Make a reservation at your favorite restaurant a few days in advance, so that you can get some alone time. In case your family lives nearby, you can plan mornings alone with your partner and evenings could be a family affair.
