With the Summer Holidays and Christmas coming up so soon it’s got me thinking more and more about family traditions!

In our family we have a raft of ones we have gathered either purposely or accidentally over the past 13 years.  Some we do throughout the year and some are about Christmas and the Holidays.

It feels good to have/make family traditions even more so in a Single Parent family.  I think it gives Miss 13 a greater sense of family, connection, is something a bit ‘special’, it’s something she can rely on and we do also have loads of fun with them :-)

So I thought I would share some of our different family traditions here:

 

10 Unique & different Family traditions from a Single Parent family

 

1. Milk Shakes at Midnight on the eve of your Birthday (& 1 present)

At midnight on the eve of my daughters Birthday every year, I wake her up, wish her Happy Birthday and ask her if she wants to get up for a Midnight Milkshake.
She always wants to and it’s a special unique way to start the Birthday.
While drinking the Milkshake, I also give her one little present from her stash…then she crawls back into bed in Milky sleepy birthday dreamyness!
