December is the perfect time of the year to indulge in some special Christmas traditions with your loved ones, whether that’s making festive memories or treating the kids to a treat or two.
We love discovering new ideas for ways to feel truly festive with the family, and our latest find won’t disappoint!
The North Pole Christmas breakfast is the sweetest treat your children could dream of and a lovely way to welcome in the festive season.
You can even combine this Christmas tradition with elf on the shelf, as many families start both of these on the same day as a way to welcome their mischievous festive friend!
What is a North Pole Christmas breakfast?
The North Pole Christmas breakfast is traditionally a complete blow out to celebrate the beginning of the festive season, so prepare yourself for some hyped-up children! To get the whole family really in the Christmas mood it’s nice to theme all of the food and decor to look as Christmassy as possible. You can let your imagination run wild with decorations (but don’t worry, we have some tips to help you too).
Now, this isn’t going to be the healthiest of breakfasts so it’s worth reminding your kids that this is a special tradition that only happens once a year, to justify why they get to eat all their favourite foods for breakfast!
Typically families enjoy their North Pole Christmas breakfast on either the first day or first weekend of December, as an introduction to the most festive month of the year. Of course, picking the first weekend of December gives you more time to enjoy your celebrations!
How to decorate your North Pole Christmas breakfast
Decorate whatever room you’re planning to have your Christmas feast in to give your new tradition a really special feel. Whether you do this as a surprise for the kids or let them help, they will absolutely love it!
Some families like to recreate the North Pole itself and pick icy colours like blues, whites and silvers, and sprinkle snow and silver glitter around. Others prefer a more traditional approach and favour colours like red, green and gold.
