With the last day of Hanukkah right around the corner (January 1st!), family plans are being made and final touches in holiday decor are being displayed. And on the spiritual side, items of great importance and significance have been carefully selected to adorn our homes. For many, the addition of the Mezuzah Scroll affixed to the doorway serves as not only a great reminder of the importance of faith, but also a faithful greeting to our friends and family who may enter. For this reason, we love the modern twist that Apeloig Collection has taken on the traditional Mezuzah.

With the holidays in full swing there is no better time to start crafting and creating traditions. It pretty much goes without saying that a huge part of the Christmas tree is the ornaments we adorn it with. Why not make those ornaments yourself? Gather everyone in the family (no age is too young or too old) to make these fun and creative ornaments with minimal supplies.
One of the most beloved traditions during the winter holiday season is baking and decorating cookies. While we love the fun of it– mixing the ingredients, using the cookie cutters, watching them as they grow in the oven and, of course the best part, decorating them–let’s face it, we don’t love all the sugar involved and the effect it can have on our kids. We would hate to take away that favorite pastime, and don’t forget we need to leave cookies out for Santa. So, say goodbye to the sugar-filled toppings and hello to a healthier alternative to the traditional decorating.
As the end of the calendar year nears, many people make New Year’s resolutions. This year, why not start a new tradition and write letters to yourself instead? In one letter, do a year in review and take some time to reflect on the best moments of the year and all that you’ve accomplished. And then, for the second letter, try a different approach: write a letter to your future self as your future self. Then at the end of the year you can look back and see just how much you achieved!
Family Traditions are a wonderful way to create lasting memories for your little ones to always look back to once they grow. Does your family take the time to write down or share things you are thankful for during the holidays? We have a few ideas for you to make this into a fun tradition to enjoy each and every year throughout your children’s growing years.
Your child has learned to love their Elf on a Shelf friend over the past month or so. It has almost become a part of the family, so instead of leaving your children with a sense of doom as the Elf “reports” back to Santa if they’ve been naughty or nice, choose to start a new fun tradition every Christmas Eve – the elf gift.
Like a baby shower is used to celebrate a new baby and gift the parents with the things they might need to raise baby, a blessingway ceremony is a way to honor the mom-to-be and to celebrate this very special moment in her life. We have put together some wonderful traditional and modern elements to help you plan a blessingway ceremony.
As we creep further into the fall season, many of us who are newer families are yearning to start fun traditions with our children that will leave a lasting impression on them into adulthood. What better way to do this than by starting a fall tradition bucket list?
