Today, I’m super excited to be sharing at iMOM, a group dedicated to helping women love their family well — sharing articles, periscopes and all kinds of resources. You can connect with them on Facebook here and find lots of their resources on Pinterest here.

As soon as the calendar turns to December, my family starts craving Christmas cookies. So we always set aside one night when everyone’s home to mix, bake, and decorate dozens of sugar cookies. We use the same recipe my mom used when I was growing up and many of the same cookie cutters. I set out colored bowls of frosting, sprinkles, and candies and when all the cookies are frosted, we take the annual picture of our creations.
December is full of these kinds of family traditions. They’re part of what make this month so special.
Rituals and traditions are important. They don’t just mark the time of year; they help form a strong and unique family bond. And while family traditions take a bit of planning, they’re so worth it. Here are the top five reasons it’s good for families to make and keep traditions.
