MONTHLY Traditions....are those traditions that you do once a month with your family. Sometimes we don't think about them being traditions because they are just part of our "normal" routine.
(By Anonymous) Once a month for FHE we make it a service night. We go serve in the community or in our ward. We have gone to the Ronald McDonald House to cook dinner, made blankets for foster children, gone to a retirement home to visit the people there, raked leaves for elderly people in the ward, planted flowers for widowed sisters in the ward dropped off treats and notes to Primary/Sunday school teachers etc. I always love it when the kids come up with a new idea of who to serve. It makes me realize they have learned to really enjoy service!!
(By Anonymous) We have a tradition where every holiday we make roll out sugar cookies and decorate them and take them to friends and neighbors. I like to do even the smaller holidays like St. Patrick's Day and Cinco de Mayo etc. it just gets everybody in a festive mood.
(By Mary) I didn't realize that this was a tradition until I was sitting in class today. Last Saturday night I put a roast in the crockpot. When my son smelled it Sunday morning he said, "Is it Fast Sunday today?" I never realized that he associated our monthly roast with Fast Sunday.
