Growing up we always remember the fun activities we did every year during Christmas. We remember things like caroling, baking cookies, sending Christmas cards and being kissed under the mistletoe Every family has their own traditions and traditions are different in countries around the world. We want to hear what your favorite traditions are. Who knows we just might want to start them with our own families and friends.
Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas!

I really love this idea. I always go this route when I can't decide what to buy for a child, or if I'm buying something for a child I don't know very well. I usually prefer to use baskets over bags, because you can get more in each basket.

Art supplies, candy, and little toys are always good choices. I made one for my niece for Christmas last year and she loved it! She's a total chocoholic so I packed it with Hershey's Kisses and M&Ms. She's also an aspiring artist so I gave her a set of these Oil Paints from UtrechtArt.com. For toys I went with an old classic, pink ink+legos">Legos!

would be great to take some of these bags to your local food pantry!  What a treat that would be for a shild in need! What a fabulous way to teach your children the true spirit of christmas and giving.

As a young child I remember going to my grandparents home on Christmas Eve.  We were always so excited.  Grandma and Grandpa always had a beautifully decorated tree with one major difference.  Taped all over the tree were brand new crispy $1.00 bills.  I remember watching the tree and wispering with my brothers and cousins about what we were going to do with this wonderful windfall.  After dinner and all other gifts were opened each of us grandkids would get to pick $10.00 off the tree.  When I was young this was a huge amount of money for a child to get and we thought we much be the luckiest kids in the world!.  My grandkids are spread all over the country so I do not get the opportunity to do this for them but my brother does it for his grandchildren.  Even though $10.00 does not go nearly as far as it did back in my youth, the grandchildren love the tradition as much as we did!

Create goody bags for all of the children. Each family donates fruit, candy, and small trinkets to put into the bags. Each paper bag is decorated with paints, crayons, glitter and other decorative articles. Our children have enjoyed these bags so much that they suggested preparing bags for the youth in their church groups. This Christmas we plan on taking it a step further and include nursing homes and others within the community.

On Christmas Eve, we bake a cake and decorate it as a birthday cake. After dinner, we sing Happy Birthday to Jesus and enjoy!

Select a special family to treat this year, one that would appreciate being remembered during the holidays. Each night have a "Christmas Pixie" activity for the family. Give them a gift with a special note or do something for them. Try to keep it a secret from the family receiving your gifts of love. some families do this for the 12 days before Christmas and call it the "Twelve Days of Christmas", using the popular English carol as a guide for their gifts.

I buy clear Christmas balls and let the kids enjoy painting them. When they are finished we hang them on the tree.
