    The best holidays we remember from our childhood were magical and filled with memories of family and friends. Unfortunately, our traditions have changed and have led us to months of debt after purchasing the ultimate gifts each year for our loved ones. Many of us will spend several months following the holidays with the burden of trying to pay off these purchase made during the holiday season. The added financial stress can be devastating to our health and relationships. 

    The holiday season season does not have to be a constant drain on your finances and bank account. 

    This time of the year is the perfect season to start holiday traditions with your family. These traditions do not have to be extravagant. By choosing meaningful items and experiences, you can recreate that holiday magic you remember regardless of the hustle and bustle everyone else is experiencing. 

    Here are a few ideas of low cost holiday traditions to spark your imagination:

    1. Family pajamas are a fun way to bond together for either a cozy night in enjoying the tree or for just relaxing together on Christmas morning. Old Navy offers great deals on pajamas that won’t break the bank.
    2. A Christmas Eve family night can consist of traditional or new holiday movies, family games, and your favorite family snacks. We always look forward to Christmas Eve in with perogies and Monopoly. 
    3. How about a weekend baking and decorating Christmas cookies together? Cookies also make great gifts for your favorite neighbors and friends on a cute plate or box with a fancy bow.
    4. Holiday music always sets the scene for a relaxing and memorable day with the family. Create a Spotify playlist as a family and use the new scan tool on Spotify to share on everyone’s devices. You can even add this to your Christmas cards and send share the spirit of the season with your list.
    5. Many neighborhoods and towns make maps of the best Christmas light displays in the area. Hop in the car with some hot chocolate, and few snacks and the family and go for a drive enjoying your family time together. Or better yet, make a scavenger hunt game out of finding items like a Grinch, a snowflake, a reindeer, etc. 

    The best traditions don’t have to cost and arm and a leg or require elaborate planning this holiday season. As your children grow up and have families of their own, they will remember these experiences and share them with their own families along with creating traditions of their own.
