5 Ways to Commemorate Christmas in Your New Home

5 Ways to Commemorate Christmas in Your New Home

Commemorating your first Christmas in a new home is a special and memorable experience. How will you celebrate? Here are five ideas to help make the occasion meaningful:

Shop for the Perfect Tree

A new home requires the perfect tree. If your new home is in Cross Creek West, make a day of it and visit Dewberry Farm to cut your own Christmas tree. If you prefer artificial trees, shop for one that better fits your new home such as a taller tree to enhance your new two-story ceilings. While you’re out, don’t forget to pick up a wreath to grace your new front door.

Start a New Tradition

Begin a new Christmas tradition in your new home. This could be something simple like reading a favorite holiday story, watching a specific Christmas movie or going for a festive neighborhood walk. Don’t forget to check out Christmas events in your new community. Plan to attend a tree lighting ceremony, parade, concert or theatrical performance — one or more of them could become a cherished family tradition.

Host a Holiday Gathering

A great way to celebrate your first Christmas in your new home is to host a holiday celebration. It does not have to be anything elaborate. Host a cookie exchange or a tree-trimming party. Provide snacks and a hot chocolate bar then let everyone mingle. After the party, go caroling around the neighborhood.

Create a Special Ornament

Craft or purchase a special ornament that symbolizes your first Christmas in your new home. Take a photo of the family in front of your home and put it in an ornament-sized frame to hang on the tree. Paint your last name on a miniature house. Anything that reminds you of the day you moved in will be meaningful.

Capture the Moment

Document your first Christmas in your new home with photos and video. Moments like decorating the tree, hanging Christmas stockings and putting milk and cookies out for Santa. Don’t just post the pictures on social media, purchase a special album, print pictures and document every Christmas you spend in your new home.
