In today’s world, keeping Christ in Christmas is no easy task. Smartphones, reality TV and cat videos on the internet consume most of our free time. It’s important for us to take a step back on Christmas and realize what we are celebrating. This is especially true for children. They need proper education and guidance from the start. Christmas is a celebration of Jesus’ birthday and not a gift-giving extravaganza!
Yes, Christ shouldn’t be the only focus on Christmas, but celebrating his birthday should be the central theme. This means more cookies, eggnog and honey glazed ham for all! A quality celebration is full of love, sharing, smiles and big hugs!
Try to implement some of these ideas to make Christmas more significant for the entire family.
#1 A Nativity Set should be placed front row and center.
Place your nativity set in a spot where everyone will see it. It will remind all your guests what they are celebrating.
#2 Give Jesus his own special stocking.
Set up a stocking especially for Jesus and fill it with offerings to Christ. This thoughtful gesture sends a special message to Christ.
