Fun Holiday Ideas For Families
Ideas for Holiday Parties, Gifts And Games!

Fun Holiday Ideas are a huge part of our own family Christmas traditions. When the kids were small it was the whole Santa thing. Now as they are older it is the joy of having them all home together for a few days. For over 25 years, we have all gone to Maryland to spend Christmas with my family. I got all my shopping done early and sent the gifts home with my parents at Thanksgiving. Grandma, God Bless her, would then wrap each and every present. 

As a result, while everyone else is madly dashing to the stores between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I had my shopping all done. This gave me the time to create some great family traditions that have held up since the kids were little. It truly has been my Mom's greatest Christmas gift to me! So take a look at some of the fun holiday ideas below. There are a lot of them so keep on scrolling down!
