Here are some unique Christmas traditions that you can do with your family to create the Christmas Spirit as well as special memories. Christmas Books 1.  Christmas Books Wrap up 25 Christmas books and unwrap one and read it every night until Christmas. It's a wonderful way to get have your children practice as well as get in the Christmas spirit. Stocking Letters 2.  Stocking Letter by Keri Have each member of your family write notes to each other, including parents, and put them in each other’s stockings. They are to write one letter a day and make sure that they end up writing at least one letter to each family member. You get to read them on Christmas morning. I think this is such a wonderful tradition because it's nice for siblings to focus on the positive things they like about each other. Wish Bottle 3.  Wish Bottle by Dawn Make a Wish Bottle for your family tree out of anything, like a repurposed an old spice bottle and decorated it. You hang your little Wish Bottle on your Christmas tree. Inside, rolled up, is a small piece of paper that you can jot down your wishes for Christmas just for that special someone to walk by and see! They can pull your wish list out, tuck it in their pocket and then leave theirs for you!
