What my kids cherish most about holiday rituals

Minimalist Holidays

As we continue to search for the holiday "sweet spot" -- that mix of celebration and simplicity that ends up feeling special, not exhausting -- it's worth thinking about what makes holiday rituals meaningful for your kids.

In my next post in the Minimalist Holidays series, I've identified the two things that make our holiday traditions special, and they're surprisingly simple and affordable (often, free).

I also pulled a few highlights from one of my favorite Parent Hacks posts from a while back, in which we all shared our favorite holiday traditions. Fun to read through those again!
