Browse wonderful traditions ideas to celebrate with your
family. Traditions are an important piece of any strong family.
They help create family stories and shape family histories.

Family TV Night
For some people, watching television is thought of as a negative, but for my family, we've turned it into a positive. I don't allow my children to watch hours upon hours of unsupervised TV. Instead I take...
Barn Dance
We live on a farmette with a few barns that we do not use for farming purposes. Several years ago we decided to turn our annual family reunion into an annual Hoe Down and Barn Dance. We wrap the...
The Family (bundt cake) Recipe
Long after the bundt cake trend went cold, I found our old bundt pan tucked in a dusty corner of the kitchen cabinets. Chris, my son, was curious about the odd shaped pan, so I tried to explain the...
Farm to Market Days
Summer may begin in June but, for many parts of the country, gardens don’t reach their peak until August. Modern grocery stores manage to keep us satisfied with produce year round, but there is...
Create an Heirloom Family Cookbook
Two of my most prized possessions are my mother's old cookbook and my grandmother's recipe box. I love thumbing through the tattered cards and reminiscing. I learned to cook, side by side, with my...
Cookies and Recollections; A Great Conversation Starter
Last winter, my kids and I dug into my grandmother’s old tin recipe box in search of a treasured family cookie recipe that my mother and grandmother used to make. Later, my girls and I put together baskets...
Breakfast for Dinner
Once a month we put a special date on our family calendar, "Breakfast for Dinner". When that day arrives, everyone is expected to put on their pajamas when they get home from work or school and we...
Our Vacation Fund
The Vacation Fund is a tradition that started soon after we got married. We didn't have a lot of money, but we wanted to be able to make an annual vacation part of our marriage. I suggested that we...
Camping Memories Caught on Film
My wife and I have been camping together since we met 12 years ago. We've always made it a tradition to take a photo of ourselves next to our tent. (We either set a timer or ask a neighboring camper to take the...
A College Football Tradition
Ever since I can remember my family has had season tickets for the Wisconsin Badger football games. Since we live somewhat near the stadium our house fills up with friends and family to tailgate and...
Saturday Morning Donuts
It's always been a tradition in our house to get fresh bakery every Saturday morning. The kids all put in their "orders" on Friday evening before bed. Sometimes it's a chocolate donut with sprinkles, sometimes...
Try a New Recipe
We have a tradition that we try one new recipe each month. I felt that I was always making the same meals week after week and it was getting boring for both me and my family. I decided to spice things up a...
Writing with Grandma
My sons and their families all live in other states. I visit each family at least twice a year (sometime more often). I am a writer, and to make certain that I communicate with my pre-teen...
The Longest Night of the Year
My family and I have always celebrated the longest night of the year on December 22nd. We eat dinner by candlelight, make a small backyard yard bonfire (with marshmallows, of course). No one is allowed to turn on a...
Family Tea Time at Our House
Tea time at our house is unique. Everyone has their own cup, mug, or sippy cup to enjoy our yummy tea. I even found a basketball mug for my son at Goodwill. It may not look fancy or even nice, but we have fun...
