Tips for Newlyweds to Make the Most of Their First Holiday Season Together 

The holidays are the perfect time to start a new tradition as a newly married couple. This is especially true if you and your partner have both moved out of your family homes and are beginning to build a life together. With all the hustle and bustle of planning for the upcoming holiday season, it can take time to figure out where to start. 

Here are some tips on how you can make the most out of your first holiday season together as a married couple. 

Create New Traditions Together 

It’s important to create traditions that reflect who you are as individuals but also as a couple. Maybe there’s something from one person’s childhood home they want to bring into their love nest or an activity both partners want to do, like baking together or caroling around the neighborhood. There’s no wrong way to celebrate! Talk with each other about what is important for each of you and find ways to incorporate those things into your holiday celebration. 

Visit Family & Friends 

No matter how far away they may be, it’s important that you find time to gather with family and friends this holiday season. Whether you’re traveling near or far, try organizing a potluck dinner so everyone can contribute something special or arrange a virtual get-together for a fun moment reliving past holidays and traditions. 

If possible, you could also plan an activity like ice skating or decorating cookies with family members before or after dinner! 

Take Time For Reflection 

With all the running around during this time of year, don’t forget to take time out for yourselves! A great way to do this is by scheduling some alone moments where each partner can write down five things they feel grateful for thus far in their marriage – maybe it was something funny your partner said during dinner last night or when they surprised you with flowers on your anniversary. It doesn’t have to be anything big—just take some time throughout the day (or even a week) for reflection and gratitude.
