Customs and Traditions #31Days

Yesterday we talked about our families’ religious and cultural backgrounds. Continuing in that sort of realm, today’s topic is customs and traditions. Does your family have a lot of family specific customs? Do you always eat the same things on certain holidays for example? Or go to the same vacation spot each year? Have something special you do on birthdays? You can share religious customs and traditions as well. There may be a lot of them!

In my family, most of our customs and traditions are based around the Jewish holidays. I have shared many of them on this blog in the past!

Feel free to tell me about your family’s customs and traditions in the comments or by leaving a link to your post!

Behind on the series? Catch up here! Please note that tomorrow’s post will not be up until 8 PM due to my religious observance on Saturdays!

Since having Reagan we are starting to make our own traditions and customs. I didn't celebrate the holidays as a kid so now that I do, it's fun putting our own traditions in place. Like watching one Christmas movie each night leading to Christmas, Elf on the Shelf, etc.
Apple picking in the fall.
Now that we are moving I'm sure we will find some new things to do with her too.

I think if I celebrated Christmas I'd be into that elf on the shelf thing! it looks fun!

I am so with Lanaya that since having the kids, we too have made our own traditions with so many holidays like the Elf on the Shelf, going Pumpkin Picking for Halloween and many more now. We will totally incorporate church and religious aspects as they get older, but right now I guess it is more about the kid aspects of these holidays with our traditions.

that's the way to do it!

Combined the last two days; so many of our traditions are built around the holidays and seasons of the Church year.

Another advantage of the Google search engine is
that it so good at putting the most relevant sites at the top of the
results list. Page titles, body copy and other elements all
play a role. Make your content easy to read, with your key word or phrase included at least once on the page.
