Family Holiday Traditions

Take a look over these family Christmas traditions that aim for quality over quantity! Books, charity, food, and experiences are the common thread. Which ones will you adopt for your family and friends? 

(PS: AFPLS can help with 'experiences'. You can check out free passesto Georgia State Parks and Atlanta Zoo. Ask at the circulation desk.)

“This is how we do presents: Something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read and then Santa’s gift (something special).” ― Christine Simpson

“We try to do presents that are all experiences and spending time together. We do get a few extra presents that my son wants. We give books about what experiences we are doing. We always give as a present one ornament for our tree, which my son will get when he goes off and has his own. We always pick a charity in giving back and donate to them. We make cinnamon rolls, which my son loves. They are a treat during the holidays.” ― Kathy Fulham    read more
