The holidays have always been my favorite. My family went above and beyond for them and I knew it meant my family would all get together and we’d have a great time.
Now that I have my own little family, I get to share that love with them!
I want them to see how much fun it is to make Thanksgiving dinner, decorate for fall, pick the perfect gifts for loved ones, and check off our holiday bucket lists!
As my kids have gotten older, I’m starting to see how our multiracial family has put a unique spin on the holidays. We’re always looking for ways to blend our cultures into our little family. I want my boys to see how fun it is to figure out what the holidays mean to us.

Try Out A New Tradition
Some families can feel pressure to bring in all the traditions they had growing up, but the holidays is a great time to try out something new. Think of a fun new tradition to start for your own family. You don’t have to stick to a routine because it’s what you’ve always done.
Embrace your own family and put your spin on the holidays!
You may even be surprised to find out you’ve already started one! Maybe you make the same thing ever Christmas morning or you you started making your famous dish for Thanksgiving. Sometimes the best traditions happen without even trying.
