Cupid’s Advice:

Is this your first holiday with your loved ones? Are you curious about the ways to begin new traditions with your family? You don’t have to start with a completely blank slate unless you choose to do so. You can always just build on some of the activities you already love. Cupid is here to help:

1. Talk about what’s important:¬†Sit down and have a talk with your significant other about the traditions you would like to introduce to your new family. You and your partner can incorporate some of the things you did during the holidays along with some of the activities he/she was raised to do. Building on the traditions you already have can make it easier for you and your honey to create new ones.
