For as long as I have known her (40+ years), my wife has made sugar cookies at Halloween. When our first granddaughter was born in October eleven years ago, we started the tradition of having the grandkids decorate Halloween cookies a few days before Halloween.
Those first few years she received a lot of help from us. But it wasn’t long before she could handle the cookies, frosting, and various candies we brought all by herself. Later, when her brother and sister were born, she would help them decorate like we had helped her. This fairly inexpensive tradition has been fun for them and for us.
What simple traditions do you have that bring joy to you and others?
