Holiday Traditions | It’s Starting to Feel A Lot Like Christmas

Holiday Traditions | It’s Starting to Feel A Lot Like Christmas post thumbnail image

This post was made possible thanks to my friends at Voortman Bakery. I was provided with the products to facilitate this review.

This week I received a call from my mom telling me that some of our family members are already starting to fly in for the holidays … What!. It is crazy to think that November is here and the holiday celebrations are about to start. My birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s are just a couple of weeks away. 

Why Holiday Traditions are Important

Holiday traditions are important because they bring a sense of familiarity and comfort to individuals and families. They also provide an opportunity for people to connect with their cultural or religious roots and pass down those traditions to future generations. Additionally, holiday traditions often involve spending quality time with loved ones and creating cherished memories.

We are a big family and most of us don’t live around the corner from each other so, some family members have to travel long distances to come and spend a little time together either before or after the holidays as their job permits. And since this is the sweetest time of the year I always like to stock up on Voortman Bakery Cookies.

How We Keep Traditions Alive.

Something we always do during this season and has become our little family tradition and I try to keep up with it, is decorating our cookies at home. It would be easier to go to the store and get them ready but, this is the time I have to spend quality time with my kids as well.

The perfect time to teach them about sharing love with sweet actions and to giving without expecting anything in return. That’s how we built a strong family unit.  As you can see Daniela gets pretty excited for this tradition. I used to do it with my son too but he is a teenager now… if you know what I mean by that… 🙁  #thestruggleisreal.

Gifting Away

We decorate our wafer cookies to take to church, to gift to family or even to leave a platter at our dinner table. They are the perfect afternoon snack. Voortman cookies wafer are so delicious we can’t stop eating them… lol 

Voortman Cookies is a great choice because they use high-quality ingredients, have a wide variety of flavors, and are committed to producing delicious and wholesome cookies. Plus, their cookies are free from artificial colors and flavors, making them a healthier option.

The only problem with decorating with Dani is that it’s impossible to stop her from eating them…., Hey! but I can’t blame her.

A beautiful and delicious platter for home-decorated cookies will always look perfect on your table or a platter to giveaway when you are visiting family or friends is also a great idea.
