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.
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.
No matter what activities are done during the festive Christmas season, the most important thing to consider is having fun and lasting memories with your family members. What is more enjoyable than Enjoying the Christmas Season with your family? After all, isnt family what the holidays are all about? There are a lot of things that you can do to make this holiday season extra special for everyone in the family. Some are traditional, and some are unconventional, but solemn and fun, nonetheless. How you celebrated your holiday when you were a kid might also be treasured by your kids today.
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.
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.
If there is an annual holiday tree lane in your community, you can drive down the street each year and let your kids enjoy the sight of elaborately decorated houses and Christmas trees. If the weather permits, everyone can enjoy a stroll. The entire family can also get some inspiration here, about what decorations to hang on the tree back home. Making this part of the family tradition will let the kids see how other homes celebrate their Christmas.
