Holiday traditions are often the glue in a family. Unfortunately, the holidays (and our sense of tradition and perfectionism) can sometimes bring unnecessary stress into our lives. It doesn’t have to be that way though. Not if we remember WHY we are celebrating the holiday and WHAT we really hope to achieve in our family through the traditions. Some traditions, if they bring unnecessary baggage and grief, are best thrown out! So be intentional when choosing what traditions and holidays you will take on in your own family. Leave room for adaptations, entirely new traditions and even stripped down or canceled traditions.
For where your treasure is; there your heart will be also.
