The snow showers are falling. The hills and lanes are covered with a white sheet of snow. The bells are echoing and the skies are filled with glittering star. It is Christmas. Christmas season comes once a year. It brings a bundle of joy and gay. Christmas is the birthday of the divine son. God took the form of man to save people from sin.

You will conceive by the power of the Holy Spirit and give birth to a child (Luke 1:28:38).
With gift shopping, preparing the house for visitors, cooking and baking to organise, you probably have a lot to juggle as Christmas approaches. Being prepared before the Christmas rush hits will save you a lot of time and stress - allowing you to relax and enjoy the holiday season. Do some of your Christmas food shopping in October or November, buy presents early or order them online, and make a list of what needs to be done. Ticking tasks off your list gradually throughout November and December will ensure an easy, stress-free Christmas.
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!
The easiest way to make what I am talking about here real is to look and keep looking for the evidence that joy is all around you, and when you begin than process, you will begin to see small things happening all around you. Dont stop, keep looking and feeling the better feelings that come with it.
For many people, Christmas is a time to celebrate, relax and enjoy family time.

To ensure you can enjoy the holiday season, take a look at these tips to ensure you have an organised Christmas season.
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.
