Keep it simple
This Christmas, give yourself plenty of time to prepare and dont worry if something goes wrong. After all, Christmas is not about where you spend it, or what you do - its about who youre with!
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.
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.
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.
So this year take the joy the season evokes and get inside it by sharing it. Learn Jesus as the happy and joyful life force He is. After all Jesus was the absolute emotional mix of whatever God represents for anyone.
