As the holidays approach, families are either upholding old traditions or creating new ones.
In this month’s Ladies Home Journal, First Lady Michelle Obama reveals the holiday activities that take place at the White House and how she celebrated the holidays as a kid.
“Christmas has always been a special time in my household,” Michelle Obama says in the December/January issue. “Growing up, we lived in a little-bitty apartment, but my mom put her heart and soul into decorating that house.”
With two daughters of their own, the First Family have made their own holiday traditions that liven up the White House.
“I’ve hula-hooped, done a dog trick with (pet pooch) Bo and read poems,” she said. “The kids will sing or put on plays. The President and some of the other dads will get together and do a song.”
Another tradition that endures is holiday cooking.
“Sasha is our big cookie maker,” her mom says. “It’s one of the major activities the girls do when they have friends over.”
