Fun Family Tradition Idea  Create a “store” where you can take snacks from while watching your favorite Christmas movies. Set up the family snack bar before you start to watch your movie. Set out favorite candy, drinks and snacks. If you have some extra time make some popcorn and top with melted butter, top with some drizzled chocolate, and mix in mini M&Ms, sprinkles, or mini marshmallows.
