Everyone is expected to share their things with the less fortunate during the Christmas season. This season tells us that God loves us. God is dealing us with love. This season proves us that god loves us unconditionally that he took the form of man. The dew which falls in December is a source of freshness; it helps us to renew our drooping spirits.
To make the Christmas tree cutting more fun, why not pack warm treats in a picnic basket and have a snack right where you intend to get your tree? If picnicking is not your style, you can stop by a restaurant. Or, after the tree is safely back home, everyone can drive to the nearest shopping mall to purchase ornaments and series lights to decorate the tree, or like most of us, get down the box of ornaments stored in the attic.
Christmas doesnt have to be elaborate to be enjoyable. A simple BBQ or casual meal with family will do just fine - as will just one gift per person. Good music, good company and plenty of food is enough to keep most people happy.
Everything you ever got in your life, whether it was a situation, or circumstance or an event or physical reality, it was always preceded by thoughts. There was no physicalness to its reality, and it began with a thought. What you desire is becoming when you are happy. It is moving into manifested reality. And it is the state of joy that allows for it to show up. This is what Jesus meant when He so often said ask and it is given and believe it and it shall be.
Many families still want to cut down their own Christmas tree, instead of buying those plastic ones in shopping malls. Hunting for a tree is a really fun family activity. There may be a local tree farm nearby, or you need to travel a few more miles. No matter how near or how far, there is always an additional glee in everyones heart thinking that the holiday tree the living room was cut down by Mom and Dad.
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.
