Sunday morning, as the family piled in our bed to watch fishing on the Outdoor Life Network, I realized that this was one of our silly family traditions. Most Sunday mornings before we start getting ready for church, we turn a crazy hunting or fishing show on the television and lay in bed and drink our coffee. The kids love it, and I now look forward to what we'll see on this time. My favorite is the shark fishing competition.
It made me think of other unintentional traditions we have. For example, we cook a frozen pizza for dinner every Sunday night and eat it on the floor in front of the television while watch ing America's Funniest Home Videos! It's just a given. But we didn't just one day say, "we're going to do this every Sunday night!" It evolved.
I think it's awesome to have things you do regularly with your family that are special. I had many fun traditions growing up and it's fun to try and incorporate those into my kids lives. I hope many more unique and special traditions come about every year! I'm sure they'll change with the seasons of life we go through too.
What kind of traditions have you settled into with your family?
