Top 5 Christmas Traditions that Help Make the Holidays Memorable

-ajoyfulchristianteen ⭐

Christmas is a special holiday, filled with love, family, joy, giving and sometimes gifts. While there are so many things that make this day special, there is nothing like the Christmas traditions. These activities that many people do each year to celebrate can make amazing memories and allow for quality time with our families and friends.

Let’s take a look at some of my favorite Christmas traditions ! ⭐️

Decorating the Christmas Tree

Every year, me and Goodmommy never forget to set up a festive Christmas tree. It’s just so satisfying to add our personality to it with unique ornaments and garlands to add a little texture. And that final angel or star on top wraps it all together like a bow does a gift. To me, Christmas trees are one of the best ways to light up our home with the Spirit of Christmas.

Christmas Movie Marathon

Sitting on the couch, binging classic and new Christmas movies is definitely a favorite in my house! The nostalgia that I get, and the laughter that it causes is so memorable, and a huge part of the reason for why it’s a tradition. Hallmark Christmas movies are our favorites to splurge on as soon as November begins!

Advent Calendars

I think that advent calendars are so whimsical, and bring even more excitement to the holidays as you wait for Christmas Day to arrive. The suspense from not knowing what trinket you’ll receive next makes them so fun to have. Especially as a family.

Gingerbread Houses

A good gingerbread house can definitely be a joy, especially when you have a close family member or friend by your side. Sure, they can be a little tricky, and messy, to put together, but it’s super fun to look at your work, when you’re done. And the best part? They’re edible, of course!

Christmas Dinner

When Christmas Day finally arrives, the anticipation is over. Me and my whole family get together, and we have a wonderful Christmas dinner. A huge part of Christmas is spending time with family, so any tradition that centers around my loved ones is one of my favorites.


Christmas traditions are simply ways that we celebrate the Christmas season. To be honest, these examples are just a glimpse of the many things that you can do with your family this time of year. The list is almost endless with many festive possibilities!

Have a blessed day, y’all! ✨

3 Creative Ways to Make Brownies that Taste Like Christmas | Blogmas Day 6

3 Creative Ways to Make Brownies that Taste like Christmas

Happy Wednesday, y’all! I don’t know if you guys have heard yet, but today is National Brownie Day! Brownies are a dessert fit for any time of the year. They’re fudgy, slightly crunchy, and moist, if they’re made right. But, we don’t want just any brownie. We want a brownie that screams “Christmas!”

I wanted to share the brownie mix that I like to use to make delicious brownies. It’s from a brand called Ghiradelli, specifically the Double Chocolate Premium Brownie Mix. It includes chocolate chips, which make the brownie melt in your mouth. Perfect for National Brownie Day!

Keep on reading for some creative things that you can do to make your brownies reflect the Christmas spirit! ✨

1. Incorporate Classic Holiday Flavors

You know those flavors that effortlessly say “Christmas?” Peppermint, pumpkin, raspberry, ginger, and caramel are just a few examples. Incorporate one of these flavors into a brownie, and see what you think. Adding a flavor that compliments this time of year along with chocolate can make a really sweet treat!

2. Use Innovative Shapes

While the taste of a brownie is super important, cutting them into creative shapes can make them even more of a joy to eat. Use your creativity when shaping your brownies into different forms like a Christmas tree, heart, star, or candy cane. And don’t be afraid to decorate! If you do, they will surely add some Christmas color to your dinner table.

3. Make Cheesecake Brownies

One of my favorite holiday desserts, or desserts in general, is cheesecake. It’s creamy, simple, and a classic that never gets old. But what about a brownie cheesecake? Sounds delicious! While both are great on their own, I’m sure that they would be even better together!

Oh great! Now I want some chocolate, lol. Hopefully, you now have some creative ideas to help you elevate your brownies and make them scream “Christmas!”

Have an amazing day, y’all! ✨

My Favorite Christmas Desserts

Christmas is right around the corner, and even though there’s so much that I enjoy about the winter holiday, I must say that I always enjoy Christmas desserts. And, although there are many desserts that I love to eat during the holidays, I wanted to share three of them with you all, today!

So, here are some of My Favorite Christmas Desserts! ✨

Red Velvet Cheesecake

I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of this amazing dessert but if you like either red velvet cake or cheesecake, you are bound to love red velvet cheesecake! It’s the perfect duo, and it gives you that soft and creamy texture with a crumble from the cheesecake. It just melts into your mouth, and I’d recommend it to anyone who loves dessert.

Pumpkin/Sweet Potato Pie

Ahh. Classic pumpkin pie. Sweet potato and/or pumpkin pie are some of my favorite desserts to eat all year round, but especially so when it comes closer to the holidays. Even if pumpkin or potato pie isn’t on your table this Christmas, it’s never too late, and that’s why this dessert will always be one of my favorites.

Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls are yet another holiday classic that I’ve always loved. They’re sweet and have that festive yet crisp taste that is great in fall and winter. Not only that, but I love how you can make different types of cinnamon rolls…and eat them for breakfast on Christmas morning. Just don’t eat too many, lol.

I hope I didn’t make you all too hungry while sharing some of My Favorite Christmas Desserts! The truth is, dessert and food in general is a part of Christmas, and it’s important that we remember to give God all the glory, not only on Christmas, but every day.
