Celebrate Family Holiday Traditions in a Chic and Modern Way
Each holiday season, families across the nation send Christmas cards, search for stocking-shaped cookie cutters and line up to see Santa at the mall—all in the name of holiday traditions. While these cherished activities never go out of style, it can be fun to mix up your family's traditions to give a chic, modern twist to your classic Christmas cards, carols and cookies. Read on for some great tips for updating your family's parties, d´cor and Christmas cards this year.
The first step in modernizing traditional holiday activities involves redefining your family's style—have your children outgrown visits with Santa and the parade of cartoon characters you've traditionally had on your Christmas cards? Schedule a shoot with a photographer at the beach, on the slopes or in the botanical gardens this year and opt for a sleek and stylish photo Christmas card instead. You could even encourage your teenagers to send their own cool, personalized Christmas cards to their groups of friends to save them the utter embarrassment of sending a family photo on a Christmas card to their peers.
No matter what your family's holiday traditions are, it's important to let them evolve as your family grows and changes—otherwise, you might end up with the same cartoons on your Christmas cards year after year! 'Tis the season to showcase your style, so have some fun and give your celebration a fun, modern twist.
