I’ve probably spent at least one evening each year of my life driving around looking at Christmas lights, so that in itself is special enough to make it a family tradition! But then, a couple years ago, I found the golden Christmas Express tickets from Confessions of a Homeschooler. And it turned what was once a “special” night into something almost ”magical”. It really is the little things in life, isn’t it?
One evening before Christmas, while my kiddos head off for their evening baths, I sneak into their rooms and leave a golden ticket and a silver bell on top of their pajamas.
And when they return to find it, the neighbors may actually be able to hear their shrieks! For they know that instead of heading to bed, we’ll head to the car with snacks and hot cocoa and sing Christmas carols while we cruise the neighborhoods to get a glimpse of all the Christmas light displays. So simple, but so memorable!
