We all have traditions we like to take part in around the holidays, whether it’s visiting the live nativity, driving around to look at decorations or the yearly photo with Santa Claus. As kids, my sister and I looked forward to watching the holiday films on television and I enjoy the fact that they’ve played year after year, and now my children can enjoy these same films. My most favorite one of all was Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and that television movie tradition was second only to meeting and chatting with Santa as Christmas drew near.
The film was first broadcast 50 years ago and is a favorite among children and adults to this day. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is the longest-running and highest-rated holiday TV special of all time, and it is inarguably a beloved part of the American holiday tradition.

My favorite holiday traditions are making Christmas ornaments for the Christmas tree with my child! We make cinnamon applesauce or salt dough ornaments every year. It’s one of my favorite things to do with my son! Plus we all go and pick out a Christmas tree together and decorate it together. There is so much wonderful stuff we do all together, it is my favorite time of the year.
