Home for the Holidays: Family Traditions to Start Now

The holidays are a special time to get together with family and friends and celebrate the year. Being home and together for the holidays can be even more important for military families. Here are a few traditions you can start now and celebrate for years to come – and living in a new home at Homestead makes it even easier.

Make a special treat. Whether you love sugar cookies, pecan pie or grandma’s special stuffing, making your favorite holiday recipe is the perfect way to spend time together, especially if you have young ones that love to help in the kitchen.

Share the love. Maybe you went a little overboard with the cookies. At Homestead, you’ll be surrounded by friendly neighbors who you can share your treats with. You could even make a giving plate and see how far the love goes!

Attend a community event. Homestead’s Lifestyle Director plans a year-round calendar of events and activities for residents, including some awesome holiday parties! It can become a family to tradition to attend the yearly potluck or have a family picture taken with Santa.

Invite some guests. Odds are, you probably have some friends or family wanting to visit around the holidays. An extra bedroom or upstairs loft in your new home at Homestead makes it a breeze to entertain guests every year!

Have your favorite meal. Not the best chef? In Schertz you’ll find plenty of mouth-watering restaurants just a short drive from Homestead. Instead of cooking a big meal, take everyone out and spend more time enjoying each other’s company!

Go to a local event. All around Homestead, you’ll find plenty of holiday events to go to. The main event in Schertz is Holidazzle, but you’ll find plenty to do in New Braunfels, too.

Keep it simple. The holidays can be hectic, so sometimes it’s nice to keep things easy. Invite some neighbors over for dinner, or make it a potluck so you don’t have to cook a big meal. Relaxing with your Homestead family could be your new favorite tradition.
