Is this the first year that you’re spending the holidays in 2 separate homes after going through a separation/divorce? The family unit may have changed, but Christmas in the eyes of our children is still that special time of year that brings something good to everyone.

As long as it doesn’t become a tug of war around who gets to be with the children for what part of the holiday, then new traditions can become just as special as the old ones.

Plan in advance & communicate in advance (even if that means through emails to one another), but the key is to come to an agreement that includes both of you spending some time with your children over the holidays.
