Traditions within a family are always so much fun. But there is something so special about those created during the Christmas holiday season. Family traditions can be simple or they can be extravagant. They can be expensive to incorporate or they don’t have to cost anything at all. Whether you have a complete repertoire of traditions and are looking for a few new ideas or are looking to implement some traditions for the very first time, here are some amazing traditions that your family will absolutely love.
Take Family Photos
Take a family photo on or around Christmas with the family every year. Gather the whole family around the Christmas tree, the holiday table, or in the backyard and watch how everyone changes from year to year. You don’t realize the power of a good camera until you want gorgeous pictures of your family. Purchasing a good camera from Buydig.com is one of the best choices you’ll ever make for your family.

Watch Holiday Movies
When your family gets together for the holidays, watch your favorite Christmas movies. Or spend Christmas Eve watching home movies of past family Christmas celebrations on your new TV!
Make these fitness watches and trackers your signature gift of the season for everyone on your list. Then have everyone work off the holiday dinner together with a nice brisk walk or run. Make a competition out of it by comparing steps and calories burned.
Checking it Twice
Have kids and teens alike create their wish lists on a new laptop. Or make it a yearly tradition to sit down together to send email thank you notes for their gifts from grandparents and friends.
Use the Google Home Smart Speaker to start a tradition of everyone requesting their favorite holiday songs to sing together. Request a new recipe to bake together on Christmas Eve.
Continue the tradition of tracking Santa together on Christmas Eve. The kids can follow his route from anywhere on a new tablet.
Sing Christmas Carols
Break out the vintage vinyls and play them on the Audio-Technica Turntable and let the kiddos sing along to the favorites of the older generations in the family. This will spark some storytelling from grands and great-grandparents along the way as well.
Memories on Film- Use your camcorder to capture the family caroling through the neighborhood. Record the little ones reciting the Christmas list for Santa and then capture the reactions on Christmas morning. Start a tradition of watching these memories together the following Christmas Eve.
Acts of Kindness- Create and print holiday cards and artwork to deliver to shut-ins or send to military unable to be home with their families. After capturing special moments on camera, print them out on your printer from Buydig.com and insert into creative handmade ornaments to be placed on the tree. Making a new ornament for the tree each year is a delightful way to spend time connecting with the kids during the holidays.
