Simply put, “Making Memories & Creating Traditions” will be a group of posts this holiday season offering ideas with the sole purpose of doing exactly that: making memories and creating traditions with your loved ones. It’s important to step back from the craziness of the holidays – and life – and do something together that will always be treasured, and possibly start a new annual tradition. Sappy sounding? Sure. Sentimental? In the best way. Will it be worth it? You betcha. Cheers!

Symbolizing good fortune and good wishes, floating lanterns make for a great activity during the holiday season or welcoming the new year. Yes. It will require everyone to bundle up and head to a safe location for the release. But with friends and family at your side, seeing the lanterns float away in the sky will be worth it. Not only will this create a lasting memory, especially with the younger ones, but hopefully the start of a great tradition. (And once the lanterns are released, pull out some cookies and warm beverages to enjoy on the ride – or walk – home.)
