What does Christmas mean to your family? Is it about spending time together, opening presents on Christmas morning or celebrating various family traditions? Christmas has many meanings to different people, but for our family, we celebrate Jesus’s birthday. Yes, we still do Santa and the Elf on the Shelf and buy each other presents, but our main focus is on celebrating the birth of Jesus who came to earth many, many years ago.
It’s easy to forget about the Reason for the season in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. With all the time it takes to shop for loved ones, decorate the tree, prepare the holiday meal and make cookies for family and friends, I am exhausted. That’s why I like to look for little things to remind myself and my family about the true meaning of Christmas.
