Family traditions can give us comfort and help us build stronger relationships with our children, parents, spouse, and other family members.
To make sure younger generations are able to carry on the traditions that we hold dear, it’s important to preserve family traditions and not let the traditions fade over time.
One of my favorite Holiday family traditions is going over to my grandparents’ house. We usually go over on the 23rd and stay until the 26th. I have so many wonderful memories of our holidays and of our quality time together as a family.
The best part of this family tradition is the holiday movie marathon we have each year. We pull out all of the new and old classics and grab a bowl our favorite snack mix while we let the films roll.
Our favorite snack is this super easy Honeycomb® trail mix. You can whip it up in only a few minutes.
All you need is a box of Honeycomb Cereal, and a few other tasty ingredients. I added pretzels, almonds, cashews, raisins, and M&Ms to this latest batch.
Sometimes I add popcorn or marshmallows too – my daughter loves some marshmallows. And popcorn. Basically any snack foods — she’s rarely seen without some sort of snack in her hand.
Whenever I make this trail mix it brings back all my favorite memories.
It’s not only great for family movie marathons, it’s also a great snack for school lunch (my 9-year-old son loves taking some in his lunch box) and it’s a nice power-up on my daughter’s breaks between dance classes.
My kids recently told me that they can’t wait for Christmas so we can enjoy our favorite tradition. That makes me so happy because it’s something I’ve always looked forward to and now they do too.
Since we’re such movie enthusiasts, we’re really excited to see the movie SING© in theaters starting December 21, 2016. It looks like such a cute movie so I know the kids and I will enjoy it.

Keeping your family traditions alive is important. It’s the legacy you will leave for your children, and the traditions you keep alive now form the foundation for the traditions they will one day keep alive with the families they create.
It takes effort, yes. But it’s truly worth it.
I want to hear from you!
