Do you really need a Christmas tree, a wreath, and fairy lights? Is a Christmas playlist really necessary? Do you really need six types of Christmas cookies? Taking on everything at once and trying to control every detail will just cause unnecessary stress. Every family has their own traditions and special requirements - so stop and think about what matters most. Is it the decorations? The food? The people? Make a list of the three most important details for Christmas, and focus on them first and foremost. The other little details arent as important as you having a stress-free day and a good time!
On the outset, Jesus had one message - that the purpose of life is the pursuit of joy. There is nothing more and nothing less. Without a single spoken word, Jesus, born of no worldly riches, brought the experience of joy to the world.
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.
Christmas celebration is not a one day celebration. It is celebrated for a month. Preparation for the Christmas plays a vital role in the celebration. The houses are cleaned and white washed. The curtains and the older cloth are made new or changed. A Christmas tree is set up during this season.
