There are absolutely no negatives is the messages of Jesus. In fact nothing surrounding the ideas associated with Jesus was to make anyone feel bad. Unfortunately mans interpretations led to institutionalized structures of pain and suffering, a necessary path to eternal happiness.
Christmas doesnt have to be elaborate to be enjoyable. A simple BBQ or casual meal with family will do just fine - as will just one gift per person. Good music, good company and plenty of food is enough to keep most people happy.
Everyone is expected to share their things with the less fortunate during the Christmas season. This season tells us that God loves us. God is dealing us with love. This season proves us that god loves us unconditionally that he took the form of man. The dew which falls in December is a source of freshness; it helps us to renew our drooping spirits.
If youre cooking for a lot of people, chances are your kitchen (and fridge) just wont be able to cope with the volume of food required. Not to mention, trying to cook and prepare everything yourself can be a huge burden. By delegating certain tasks or meals to different family members or friends, you can make your job much simpler. Let other family members take care of cold dishes like salads and desserts so you can focus on the hot dishes and save room in your kitchen. Remember, you dont have to do it all yourself - youre always entitled to ask for help from friends and family!
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.
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.
