Happy 2015! Today is the first day of a new year and we are looking forward to an exciting and bright new year! Now that the Christmas holiday buzz has ended and the excitement from last night’s festivities have died down, you might find yourself quietly relaxing at home with the family today. If that is the case, why not make today extra special by creating new family traditions and spending quality time together.
Traditions are something fun to create and celebrate every year. The activities don’t have to cost much and can be as simple as a movie night with the whole gang. Whatever you choose, make sure to get the whole family involved from little to big. Check out the 3 traditions below that will help you celebrate new years day with the whole family:
Today is the perfect day to throw on warm a jacket and head out for a walk with the family. While it may seem like a simple tradition, going on a family walk is a great way to get some exercise while making new memories. Take this time to review the fun memories of Christmas, create new years resolutions for each member of the family and make sure to snap some pictures to commemorate the first day of a new year! When the family is all tuckered out and ready to go home, share warm drinks in front of your Valor Fireplace to keep warm and keep the conversation going.
While it might be the first day of a new year, there is no reason to close the book on 2014 just yet! Gather up the whole family and grab all of your photo albums and photos. Spend the day flipping through special photos and have each family member help to create a new photo album that shows off this past year. It’s a great way to highlight the best parts of the year and at the end of the day you’ll have a special book of memories to enjoy for years to come!
Last but certainly not least, if you’re looking for a warm indoor activity why not let the kids do the cooking? Spend the day in the kitchen making breakfast, lunch and dinner and have the whole family get involved. Make it a fun experience by having a Christmas leftover food challenge where everyone can cook only using leftovers or try to recreate some family favorite meals with the kids in charge. Not only will this give the adults a bit of a break, it’s a great way to spend the day together and eat up some tasty treats!
We hope you enjoy the beginning of the new year and find a way to celebrate close to home and keep warm in front of your Valor Fireplace.
