When it comes to the holidays, we all have our traditions. Some of our include putting up our decorations the Saturday after Thanksgiving; getting to go out to eat a week before Christmas (the kids were jammies) and then we drive and look at lights. And for use, it is heading to Hallmark to pick up the keepsake ornaments for the series we have for our children.
We started collecting ornaments for our children when they were born. That way, when they are on their own and have holidays with their families, they can take with them memories from Christmas’s past. Yeah – I’m a sap that way! When it comes to the holidays, make sure you keep it fun. Our friends at Hallmark have a few ideas for you:
Make Your Tree a Fun Place to Be
Transform your Christmas tree from a holiday decoration to a “family tree.” With more than 300 new Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments to choose from, you can tell your family’s story on every branch. Reminisce over old times, celebrate “firsts,” and capture your kids’ passions.
Make sure you remember special events during the year such as Baby’s First Christmas, Your New Home or even an ornament commerating the year. You might also want to check out one of the newest FUN ornaments – “The Mischievous Hiding Elves.” With bendable arms and legs, these two elves (Jingle and Jangle) join hands. Then parents can separate Jingle and Jangle and hide them in separate spots on the tree for their little helpers to find and put back together.
Bring Holiday Tales to Life
Reading holiday classics as a family is a beloved tradition, and now, families can add a new twist — bringing story time to life with Jingle the Husky Pup Interactive Storybook and Story Buddy. Jingle, a plush husky, responds with a bark, whimper or song when key phrases are read from his corresponding book.
Whether you’re far away or side-by-side, you can always share a Christmas story with loved ones, thanks to Hallmark Recordable Storybooks. This year, Hallmark Recordable Storybooks not only record a reader’s voice directly into the book; they now feature music! You can read or sing one of six holiday classics — including three new titles —and participate in holiday story time with loved ones even if distance causes them to be apart. Hallmark also offers more than 15 any day titles, such as Goodnight Moon, Disney’s Lightning McQueen, and All the Ways I Love You, allowing your gift to keep giving any day of the year.
Whatever you do, just make it memorable. It is not about spending money – it is about making the memories that you will cherish forever.
