If you as a child often spent delightful hours in the kitchen with your Mom preparing Christmas dinner, your kids too will surely take pleasure in helping you out in the kitchen. They dont have to help you with the baking; they can make their own treats like putting frosting on the cake or making chocolate covered pretzels.
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.
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.
When you hear a Christmas carol, you cant help but be reminded of those happy Christmas times during your childhood. What particular childhood memories are brought back every year? The ones you can think of are most likely the traditional ways of celebrating Christmas. Children these days will surely enjoy a few traditional holiday celebrations that your parents established yearly when you were young. Maybe you can decorate cookies with your kids. Maybe you can try to whip up a few treats with the help of your kids. There are always ways to recreate those special holiday family traditions and let your kids experience them.
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.
Christmas celebration is not a one day celebration. It is celebrated for a month. Preparation for the Christmas plays a vital role in the celebration. The houses are cleaned and white washed. The curtains and the older cloth are made new or changed. A Christmas tree is set up during this season.
