Tip #2: Create Your Own Traditions

As families change and grow, traditions change as well. For example, if you are a working woman who had a stay-at-home mother, instead of trying to reproduce the exact old-fashioned holiday of your childhood, do only what you can. As long as you do them with a joyful heart, the meals, decorations, and celebrations you create will become your family's cherished rituals.

If you are divorced, be as harmonious and generous as you can with your ex. It will be the best gift you give to your kids this year. If you are single or far away from your family, invite others into your home and give the words "extended family" new meaning.
