But the magical parts, the parts that they’ll remember and perhaps even insist on doing when they become parents years from now, might not involve so much rushing or busy-ness.

If you’re hoping to capture some of the holiday spirit into new family traditions this year, this list is a magical place to start. Use the arrows above the image to browse through the ideas.
