5 traditions for a child’s first Christmas

Valeria Leshchenko

This Christmas is unusual, because it is the first for your child and you in a new role for yourself. Make it unforgettable!

Traditions for the first Christmas of a child

Of course, the sleep and nutrition regimen of babies should not be disturbed during the New Year holidays and he is unlikely to remember how he spent his first Christmas in his life, but for this in the modern world there are smartphones that take excellent photos and video.

Christmas photo session

Dress up your child as Santa, Snow Maiden or Snowman and go to a family photo session. Even dad will be interested. For bright pictures, you can invite relatives. In any case, do you remember when you and your husband took normal photos and not selfies? Consider that you have a reason.

The first gift

At Christmas, guests will come and will definitely give the baby clothes and toys, and he needs a special gift from his parents. This is his first Christmas present! Let’s do this: dad gives, and mom shoots on video. And here’s a tip: a musical instrument is a bad idea, as the child will want to play it day and night, so it’s unlikely that you can watch a Christmas series in silence.

Pajama party

Christmas is a family holiday, so you can do without uncomfortable outfits by having a pajama party. Christmas pajamas are adorable no matter your age. Try to find a family set. And, perhaps, the most cozy Christmas is waiting for you!

Photo with Santa

Even if dad becomes Santa for a while. It is important. The first Christmas and the first acquaintance with Grandfather, who will now come every year. However, this is a good manipulation tradition, especially from the age of 2: if you behave well, Santa will bring a gift and take a photo with you.

Personalized gift sock

It’s the child’s first Christmas, which means he should have a personalized gift sock that usually hangs over the fireplace in anticipation of Santa. The child will grow up, and the sock will remind of his childhood. Fashion for such things does not change, because these are such warm memories.

Peeping into Santa’s bag

Children are like children, but their gifts are different: small the American will get an expensive toy, and the Mexican will get a papier-mâché piñata to beat with a bat. What else is given to children in different countries and why — we tell in this material and get inspired by the holiday.

In the States, it is customary to give expensive gifts, as family gatherings are rare. Christmas is the most important occasion for Americans to gather in one place and give each other something valuable and practical.

Every gift in the United States is accompanied by a purchase receipt, but not to brag about the value, but so that the gift can be exchanged or returned to the store — suddenly it won’t work. Such a tradition differs from the Russian one — in our country it is considered bad form to show the price. If you have ever washed the glue from the price tag or painted over it with a black marker, you definitely understand what it is about.

It’s the other way around here: the British are not used to spending large sums on Christmas gifts — instead they buy inexpensive souvenirs.

In some families, gifts are distributed by lot right at the celebration. At the same time, it is not so much the price of the gift that is important, but the attention to the person. Therefore, children mainly receive key rings, figurines, tea cups, toys and all kinds of accessories for Christmas.


In Mexico they love the New Year as much as in Russia: for nine days everyone forgets about work and school and organizes folk festivals. The most common gift given to children here is piñata , a large Mexican papier-mâché toy that resembles an animal, a star, or an ordinary geometric figure. Inside the gift is a surprise in the form of sweets, cookies or crackers. The child is blindfolded and blindly hits a piñata suspended above the floor with a bat. This toy symbolizes the sins that can be got rid of only by breaking it.


Despite the absence of snow and other usual Christmas and New Year attributes, Indians are happy to celebrate the New Year in their own way: with lush and long garlands of flowers, paper lanterns in houses and on the streets, generous distribution of sweets to friends and unfamiliar, presenting small homemade gifts: talismans of the year, postcards, caskets and other pleasant little things.


«Akhali Tseli» — Georgian New Year — an incredible variety of national traditions. This is the Georgian Santa Claus — Tovlis Babua, the Georgian New Year tree — chichilaki, as well as a symbolic step through the threshold of your Mekvle house — a person who promises you happiness in the new year, and, of course, a rich Georgian New Year’s table. The holiday is not complete without dancing and wine, which flows like a river and is drunk from a wide variety of glasses, horns and earthenware vessels. But the most sacred thing is the singing on New Year’s Eve «Mravalzhamier» — a traditional Georgian drinking song, which is performed in polyphony.

Tovlis Babua (“Snow Grandfather”) brings gifts to children in a large bag decorated with bells, which is always full of churchkhela, gozinaki, sweets and various dried fruits. The Georgian Santa Claus does not have a granddaughter.

Traditional Christmas tree — chichilaki — a small snow-white tree made of hazel branches, decorated with sweets and berries. After the holidays, the tree is burned and the ashes are scattered to the wind to get rid of the troubles and hardships of the past year.


At midnight, church bells and chiming clocks announce the arrival of the New Year. Celebrations on the streets start as early as 9 pm, so that even the youngest children can enjoy the fireworks and the atmosphere of magic before their parents send them to bed.

In Australia, there is a Santa who appears in a very original way: on a surfboard, dressed in a bathing suit, but with a beard and in a cap familiar to everyone. He has a colleague named Sveg Men — a funny little man who moves in a chariot, accompanied by a Dingo dog. It is customary for both to leave sweets and milk for the night.

Australians give their loved ones what they want, and a receipt is usually attached to the gift so that the person can return the gift to the store if they do not like it.
