A New Christmas Tradition
Christmas is almost here! Even with the ever-changing temperatures, I absolutely LOVE this time of year. October- December is my most favorite time of the year! The weather so far this December has been warm, cold, colder…and possibly back to warm for a few days, predicting 60 degrees for Christmas Day!
Most of us all have our special holiday traditions; baking cookies and Christmas candy, exchanging gifts, ugly sweater parties etc. Our family usually spends Christmas Eve baking Christmas cookies for Santa and decorating gingerbread houses. I would love to add a family kickball game to that list! Last year the weather was warm enough we went out and played kickball on Christmas, kids and adults. With the heat wave moving in Christmas weekend (anything above 32 degrees feels like a heat wave these days) I plan on taking advantage of the warmer temps to keep the Christmas Kickball Tradition going! Last year we had a blast! I think the adults might have had more fun than the kids. J

The adults have no mercy!
Being active doesn’t have to mean being in a boring, smelly gym all day. (I’m not a fan of gyms J) More importantly we are showing our children how to live an active lifestyle. And kickball is a great game for all skill levels and all ages.
If you already get out and get active over the Christmas Holiday please feel free to share. And if not, I encourage you to get out and discover a fun active Christmas Tradition. Our health is the best gift we can give ourselves! J
