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.
Ask, or want or desire and it is given to you.
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!
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.
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!
Three wise men came to visit Jesus. The star led them. They adored and offered gifts of gold, Frankincense and myrrh. On Christmas day the churches and the houses set up a cribs, symbolizing the naturally scene. On Christmas it is a custom to hang a star outside the house or church to remember the tail star which appeared on Christmas day.
