It’s that time of year again! Climb up to the attic, pull out the boxes, clear off the mantle and hang up the Christmas wreath! There’s something magical about the glitter and bows, the change in mood that Christmas tree lights bring, and especially the memories that our children’s handmade ornaments bring to our mind.
THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS:
So, what’s some of your favorite things that you pull out just for Christmas? Homemade stockings, an heirloom snow globe, a nativity set, or a perfect tree? Have you told your kids what Christmas was like when you were a kid? Do they know what your favorite ornament is? Do you play Christmas music and teach your kids the words to the oldies?
Christmas traditions don’t have to be forced, just let them happen naturally as you get out ornaments and decorations. Turn off the tv after dinner tonight and let the sharing begin. Serve hot chocolate in the living room under the tree lights. Take silly pics with the Christmas lights outside. Make a countdown paper chain for the days of December. Pick a favorite Christmas song to sing every morning on the way to school.
Christmas and families…the most wonderful time of the year!Post Categories: Christmas | No comments yet |
