What are your holiday family traditions?
We all have them.
Some of us eat specific meals. Some of us play certain games. Some of us hang underwear on wreaths.
Whatever it might be, your family tradition is much more valuable than you might think.

Along with that, it can honor your family's heritage while people move across the globe.
As Justin Worsham of The Dad Podcast emphasized, it also creates a strong family identity. Traditions give each family member something they can look to as their own, unique thing.
