We didn’t have many holiday traditions growing up. It just really was not my family’s thing. But now that I have my own family, I love creating family traditions for us to enjoy year after year. And to hopefully pass down to the next generation. This year we are starting a new family tradition with Reindeer In Here.
What is Reindeer In Here? I’m glad you’re curious! First, it’s a fun family tradition you can include your children in. And with this tradition, your child gets a new friend that they can carry around all December long. In fact, it’s encouraged!
Reindeer In Here was born out of the mind of Adam Reed and brought to life with illustrations by Izzy Bean. Each kit includes one reindeer and one book. Inside the book unfold the story of the reindeer and how he came to be our house guest for the month of December.
See, Santa did not know what every little boy and girl wanted for the holidays. He was fully aware some children were unable to write letters so he wanted a different way to get to the know them. So Santa asked everyone at the North Pole for suggestions on how he could do this. And one little reindeer with different size antlers stood up and gave him this suggestion, give every little boy or girl a reindeer for the month of December. The reindeer can explore a new place with the child every day and then report back to Santa each night. The reindeer also gets to really know the children because they get to be carried around and go everywhere the child goes as well as get tons of hugs and kisses daily! This helps the reindeer really get to know the children and provide a thorough report to Santa.
When it’s Christmas Eve night the children must kiss their reindeer goodnight and place him/her next to the Christmas tree. That way, when Santa arrives, the reindeer can show him where to place the presents and then help Santa with the rest of the night. But don’t fret, your reindeer will be back next December 1st for new adventures and to make new memories.
I love this tradition because the children get to snuggles, hug and kiss the reindeer. They actually get to carry their reindeer around and interact with it. I think it’s a great way to keep your child active, festive and having fun during the holidays. And if you have more than one child, don’t stress, you can purchase an extra reindeer so each child can have one.
