We are all so busy with the holidays and keeping up with routines is difficult, but I could not let this time of year go by without wishing all of you who take the time to read this blog and that the information here gives you the encouragement to create your family museum. And there is no better time than now to start. Take plenty of pictures capturing the moments of surprise and delight. Save some of the gift tags and bits of wrapping paper to make a collage or start a scrap book starting with this day and for all the future Christmases. This is especially a good idea for the children. When the inevitable boredom seeps into their day, help them to start a memory book, filled with photos, bits & pieces of Christmas wrappings, a personal story about all the people they shared this holiday with, the places they visited, and some of the things they did. It is so easy to forget past events and by keeping a personal journal in whatever form you wish, the words you write will keep those memories alive forever.
Here are a few photos from my family Christmas holiday. Living in a town with a colonial living history museum offers an array of holiday magic, from brilliant fireworks to handmade decorations. My family and I enjoy going to museums this time of year because they usually display artifacts from Christmases past.
Again I wish you & your family a
