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 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.
Yuletide wouldnt be complete without the good old Christmas carols. If you are planning to hand out giveaways to your visitors dropping by this holiday season to greet your family, a CD recording of your family singing carols will be a great idea. You can also decorate the CD case with copies of your pictures with holiday greetings written as well. You can make this a yearly family tradition, each CD containing a different set of Christmas tunes the entire family recorded.
May this Christmas season bring joy, happiness, peace and prosperity to one and all.
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. According to the Gospel, one day the angel Gabriel came to a virgin named Mary at Nazareth and greeted her hail full of Gods grace! You will conceive by the power of the Holy Spirit and give birth to a child (Luke 1:28:38).
Jesus is there to remind you always that joy is the answer and that if you will but seek it, the things you desire in life will move to rendezvous with you. Here is the thing, by focusing on the realities that bring your emotions down and away from the joy that Jesus pointed us to, life attracts undesirable experiences that pull you from the energies of joy.
