november 2012 – traditions – monthly theme post listing

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you from the United States!! To the rest of you, Happy Thursday! 🙂

Below are the posts for our November 2012 Monthly Theme Post topic, “Traditions.” Enjoy!

Suggested Prompts:

  • How do you choose which traditions to create/follow in your family?
  • Are your traditions based on your family history, culture, religion, or some combination of the three?
  • What is your favorite tradition for your kid(s)? Did you also do it as a child?
  • Do you have a set plan of traditions you want to introduce, or do you just “go with the flow?”
  • How do you reconcile differences of opinion between you and your partner or you and your extended family in what the tradition “should” be for your child?
