Mom of 6 and raising a grandson for 8 years who will be 10, I learned long ago it was about creating memories & lasting traditions same thing every year makes something to look forward to. Baking 12 days of cookies, theres always a bake sale here, finding and cutting down the tree, decorating tree strung alot of popcorn to give to birds. 12 days of crafting, always do a needy child or better a family getting there list done as you would do for your own, orphan children in foster care, even when Santa fades, and it does, doing the same things the holiday don't seem so lost without Santa. It will be the traditions that make it special. When my kids (first 6 were small oldest now 44). I'd get a used roll $1.00 of clean newsprint from local newspaper printing business and Christmas cookie cutters finger paint they would make rolls of wrapping paper to send to Santa to wrap gifts, & some for me for them, I never gave Santa all the credit. With the grandson I do Elf on the shelf, Its been a hit on many levels, elf Charlie has taught many things regarding feelings, kindness, we had an estrangement problem . Best wishes
