I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but each month we have gotten into somewhat of a routine of writing an article like this at the beginning of the month. When the word of the month was cozy, we wrote about 28 ways to make your life and home more cozy. When the word of the month was empowerment, we wrote about 21 ideas for empowered living. These articles have started to serve as our initial brainstorming of ideas for the month. They are a good jumping off point for our monthly theme.
With that in mind, while planning out December content, most of it being centered around tradition, we as a team have been thinking about the traditions we have in our own lives, around the holidays and throughout the entire year. What was interesting to notice is that many of us have traditions that we didn’t even necessarily call traditions. Many of us partake in events and activities each year that we’ve been doing for the past several years. Well, technically, if you’re doing something repeatedly each year, it can be seen as a tradition. So I guess we all have more traditions in our lives than we maybe think.
Indeed, a tradition is defined like this:
Tradition: the transmission of customs or beliefs from generation to generation
Of course, traditions play an even bigger role over the holidays. Holidays spent with dear friends and family have a deeper meaning than just a regular day, so these traditions mean that much more, even the simplest of ones.
We hope you’ll join us this month in bringing more tradition into your life! Below you’ll find 13 ways to bring more tradition into your life all December long and beyond.
