Christmas In Our Hearts: 5 Moms and their Christmas TraditionsChristmas is a special time for many wonderful things — including well-loved family traditions.
Mommy Nadia De Leon, researcher for an NGO, mom to Rio, 2.5 years old:
"We stopped decorating our family's home (except for a roll of Christmas lights on our gate) when we were already adults. My husband and I continued my family's 'no-decor tradition' at home until our precious son Rio was born almost three years ago. Only then did our home have a Christmas tree again!
"We pledged to make our Christmas tree reflect the best parts of our year as a family. During Rio's first Christmas, we made a DIY tree out of cardboard and reused Rio's baptism decorations, since we considered his baptism as the highlight of our year.
Last year, we had a white tree covered with red, gold and alphabet blocks as decorations because it was the year when we introduced letters to our boy. This year, we are working on our book-themed Christmas tree! Throughout the year, we worked hard as a family to teach Rio to love books. We patiently collected books and made sure we had reading time with him every day.
"We plan to make this a yearly family tradition until Rio thinks of a new and better one. I can't wait for the time when he can join us in our yearly brainstorming and in the actual setting up of the tree.
"Christmas is a time for thanksgiving and we want to remember the things we should be grateful for through our very special family Christmas tree."ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOWCONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos1 of 3 NEXT
