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.
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.

Just remember to take snapshots of each of the family activities during the holidays, to have a lasting memory of the season.

Hot cocoa is another family tradition that your kids will surely love to experience. Let the kids have small cups of cocoa each night during the Christmas season. You can garnish each cup with stuff like marshmallows or whipped cream. Imagine the eyes of your kids light up as they have their hot and yummy hot cocoa in bed every night!
