What do you do to keep CHRIST in CHRISTMAS? It seems that there is so much commercialism out in the world that it’s sometimes difficult to concentrate on the most important ingredient of Christmas. Christ. Without Christ, there wouldn’t be Christmas. Today I am here to help you put Him back in your Christmas celebration.
I said in the post on Monday that I like to read specific books about Christmas starting Thanksgiving night. This is my second Christmas book this year, so I’m ahead of the game this year! Yay me!
To bring the true meaning of the season to my family, we have always read the Christmas story, the real one, on Christmas morning, before we open presents. Another thing we did as they were growing up is make neighbor gifts of some kind and delivering them around town the week of Christmas. Everyone decided who we were delivering these gifts to and then when we did the deliveries, the kids would take turns running to the door with the gift. It was a fun night for sure, followed by a good cup of hot chocolate and a treat.
I bought these branches at JoAnn too. You could use a regular tree branch, but I’m living in an apartment and I didn’t think they would love it if I broke their tree. If you use a regular tree branch, you could spray paint it to make it bright and cheery.
