Making House Cleaning a Tradition

The holidays are full of traditions. Some are classic and shared by many people around the nation, but some are special, unique, and just for you and your family. Chances are, if you have traditions in your family, they are important to you and you make a point to include your traditions in your holiday celebration.

Here’s an idea that will keep your house cleaning going during the holidays and get the whole family willingly involved in housekeeping!

But Cleaning, a Tradition?

It might sound strange at first, but if you break out the mop and dustpan as soon as spring appears, it’s more familiar than you think! Just like spring cleaning is a tradition for many, cleaning during the holidays can become one for you and your family.

The best way to make cleaning a tradition is to combine it with something you already do every year, such as decorate or bake. If you decorate your home for the holidays, add cleaning onto it as the first step—you want to decorate a clean house anyway, and you might as well get everyone involved!

Keep it light-hearted as you work. Talk about holiday memories and about how wonderful your home will look once it’s clean. Put on your favorite cleaning or holiday music, and don’t be surprised if you catch someone playing karaoke with a duster! 

The key to making cleaning a tradition is to make it fun and memorable. Make it something you do every year that creates excitement as you gear up for the holidays, and encourage closeness while you work together. It’s a great start to the holidays, and as you start to pull out decorations once the house is clean, you’ll already be together to reminisce over your holiday collection!
