Welcome to the holiday season! Is it crazy already?? Are you trying to figure out how to make it meaningful while still getting dinner on the table and presents under the tree? For some reason, I’m having a really hard time getting into the holiday mood this year. We’re heading up to Iowa for Christmas, so we haven’t put any decorations up – no tree, no wreath, nothing! I suppose that’s a big reason why I’m not really feeling it?! But, I know when we get off the plane, we’ll be knee deep in Christmas and it’ll be wonderful. Because my husband’s family is Scandinavian, we’ve learned many of their holiday traditions and have incorporated them into ours. I love that my kids have grown up with holiday traditions from Norway and Sweden!
Celebrating Holiday Traditions from Around the World
Do you celebrate any holiday traditions from around the world in your family? Along with our Scandinavian holiday traditions, this past Christmas we also added a little bit of Iceland to our holiday traditions! We visited Iceland a couple of summers ago and really enjoyed it there. So, last year we decided to add a little piece of their culture into ours.
So, this holiday season, if you’d like to give a little bit of an international flair to your holiday celebrations, I’ve got just the thing to help you! Here’s my 12 Days of Christmas ~ Travel Edition! There are 12 days and 12 different countries to explore. Each day you’ll read about a tradition from another country and how it came to be.
