    At what age

    Advertisements
    did you start your holiday traditions with your child(ren)? I think I'm going to start them all this year, even though Caden won't be old enough to remember. That way he will have all the pictures later to go with the memories from when he is older.
    Growing up our holiday traditions were VERY important to us as a family, and I want to continue that for my son.


    Do you think that is a little overkill? Should I wait until he is old enough to remember? What did you do with your family?

    I think if you want to do it, and you can afford to do it, why not? I think traditions are great, and when he is old enough to know what is going on, you will already have everything established. Kids out grow the holidays so quickly anymore, why not enjoy the time you can?

    Well, he's not here yet but I plan on starting them right away. I would find it very odd to not do the usual holiday traditions just because my child wont remember them. It's all about making those memories & starting that tradition with your family.

    I started from the very first Christmas, even though my oldest was only 11 days old.

    Traditions are important and I love introducing them to the kids as soon as possible.

    We started with them last year. Emma was 2 1/2 and Maddie was 5 months old. But, we knew Emma would start to understand and we wanted her to really be into it this year.

    I plan on starting traditions right away for everything I don't think it's overkill at all. Traditions are as much for the kids as they are for the parents IMO.

    be cool.

    Why wait? He may not remember it, but you will.

    We kept our traditions the same once the kids were born, we didn't change anything really.

    What kind of traditions do you mean?
