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.
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!
May this Christmas season bring joy, happiness, peace and prosperity to one and all.
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.
