As we get closer to the holidays, I am in full planning mode.  I think we are going to have a relatively quiet Christmas; however, I still like to make all the fixings for my family too.  One thing we never do without is punch.  We always have a punch recipe for the holidays.

I decided to make this Cranberry Orange Punch for Christmas because it’s just absolutely beautiful, plus it’s tasty too.  It’s also perfect for adults and kids.  I know my kids feel like they are grown-ups when they get to enjoy a glass of punch with us.

My kids and I headed to Walmart to pick up all we needed to make our punch.  It literally cost less than $10 to make this tasty drink and it will serve many.  One thing to note is that this holiday season is that when you purchase specially-marked 7UP, Canada Dry, or Squirt at Walmart, a donation will be made to The Salvation Army.  That’s a great way to easily spread the holiday cheer this season.

We are really striving to teach our kids more about giving (especially as they get older) and to really understand a little bit more about what it means to have hard times or to need a little help.  I have friends that volunteer each year to ring the bell with The Salvation Army and that’s something that I feel like as a family we need to participate in, too.  I am planning to look into it this year and try to get involved; especially for our kids, but also for us adults.  We sometimes need a reminder and a change of perspective.  It’s easy to fall into our own routine and family life, and then forget about those that may not be as fortunate. What a wonderful tradition to have as a family!

Even now, one thing we always do is shop for a Salvation Army Angel Tree Child. This year I think I’d love to do a bit more to spread some holiday cheer – wouldn’t you?
