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.
So this year take the joy the season evokes and get inside it by sharing it. Learn Jesus as the happy and joyful life force He is. After all Jesus was the absolute emotional mix of whatever God represents for anyone.
Everything you ever got in your life, whether it was a situation, or circumstance or an event or physical reality, it was always preceded by thoughts. There was no physicalness to its reality, and it began with a thought. What you desire is becoming when you are happy. It is moving into manifested reality. And it is the state of joy that allows for it to show up. This is what Jesus meant when He so often said ask and it is given and believe it and it shall be.
Yuletide wouldnt be complete without the good old Christmas carols. If you are planning to hand out giveaways to your visitors dropping by this holiday season to greet your family, a CD recording of your family singing carols will be a great idea. You can also decorate the CD case with copies of your pictures with holiday greetings written as well. You can make this a yearly family tradition, each CD containing a different set of Christmas tunes the entire family recorded.
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.
