It seems everywhere I look Christmas is letting us know it will be upon us before we know it. The stores seem to fill there shelves with Christmas overload as soon as Halloween is over. Yes it is officially beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

It has got me thinking about Christmas traditions, and how we tend to follow the traditions of what our family has always done, but I am questioning is this the tradition I actually want to carry on with my own little family of five? I asked my hubby the other day, and we both agreed that we would like to think more about what Christmas means to us, and the memories we want to create with our little ones before they grow up and have families of their own. Now I realise that is quite a few years away yet! Still, I can not help but think that now is the time we should really be thinking if the traditions we are creating are really the ones we want to be, or if we should be thinking of our own ideas, rather than just following in our parents footsteps?

What do you do for Christmas? Do you have your own traditions, or do you do what your family has always done for generations? Please share your thoughts and the traditions you love with me in the comment section below, I would love to get some fresh ideas.
