Creating Family Traditions

Image
The days of summer break are coming to a close and thoughts of a new school year are on many of our minds. I saw this article on the Today Show parents page and wanted to share it:
http://www.today.com/parents/family-time-5-easy-ways-create-family-traditions-t39746 
I like this article because it explains that now is a great time to begin a family tradition, before school starts and life gets even busier than it already is. It also reinforces the fact that family traditions don't have to be elaborate or expensive to be effective--the repetition of a tradition is comforting and reinforces family bonds. Families create and strengthen family history when they participate in family traditions and it's never too late to begin them. 
I would love to hear about a favorite family tradition you have or if you are going to try any new traditions!
