Santa gets milk and cookies, but what about the poor reindeer? When I was a kid we used to put out carrots for the reindeer to munch on, but I love this fun twist: mix together oatmeal and glitter or sprinkles and spread it out for Santa's reindeer to enjoy while he's busy delivering presents.

Once I was married, I was naively shocked to realize that my holiday traditions weren't necessarily the same as my husband's traditions. We slowly worked to figure out how to combine our traditions, but it wasn't until our son came along that we realized it was truly up to us to create his traditions. He's a little on the young side for understanding Christmas (not quite two years old), but that's the perfect time to start. (That way if we mess up or don't like it, he'll never know!) Now we just need to come up with what our traditions are going to be. Here are a few fun and unique holiday traditions we may start this year.
