Start Your Own Holiday Traditions

Holiday traditions make for fond memories and great stories. Traditional holiday meals and rituals from your past are a great place to start, but it’s fun to get creative and make some holiday traditions unique to your family. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Plan a potluck dinner party

Potluck dinner parties are great family fun, easy to put together and the host doesn’t end up spending most of the night in the kitchen. Ask each family you invite to bring a dish. Specify what type of dish (i.e. pasta side dish, veggie appetizer, main dish, etc.) and let everyone know how many people they will need to serve. (Don't forget to ask everyone to bring recipe cards for the dish they are bringing!)

At dinner, keep things simple by setting the table buffet style. Collect all the recipe cards and send each family home with a “mini” cookbook from the evening.
