Many families still want to cut down their own Christmas tree, instead of buying those plastic ones in shopping malls. Hunting for a tree is a really fun family activity. There may be a local tree farm nearby, or you need to travel a few more miles. No matter how near or how far, there is always an additional glee in everyones heart thinking that the holiday tree the living room was cut down by Mom and Dad.
Jesus is there to remind you always that joy is the answer and that if you will but seek it, the things you desire in life will move to rendezvous with you. Here is the thing, by focusing on the realities that bring your emotions down and away from the joy that Jesus pointed us to, life attracts undesirable experiences that pull you from the energies of joy.
If your kids are old enough to decide for themselves which decorations they like to put up in their rooms, then give them the freedom to do so. With you beside, let them shop for the Christmas decorations of their choice. Just remember to take snapshots of each of the family activities during the holidays, to have a lasting memory of the season.
Why this time of the year is different is because so much of humanity is placing their attention on the goodness, the happiness and the love that is brewing. And if you understand that you can align with that massive energy force, you can ride the wave of workability. You do this by freeing yourself of any reason to be feeling less than happy. You just keep moving in that direction.
When you hear a Christmas carol, you cant help but be reminded of those happy Christmas times during your childhood. What particular childhood memories are brought back every year? The ones you can think of are most likely the traditional ways of celebrating Christmas. Children these days will surely enjoy a few traditional holiday celebrations that your parents established yearly when you were young. Maybe you can decorate cookies with your kids. Maybe you can try to whip up a few treats with the help of your kids. There are always ways to recreate those special holiday family traditions and let your kids experience them.
If you as a child often spent delightful hours in the kitchen with your Mom preparing Christmas dinner, your kids too will surely take pleasure in helping you out in the kitchen. They dont have to help you with the baking; they can make their own treats like putting frosting on the cake or making chocolate covered pretzels.
