There are absolutely no negatives is the messages of Jesus. In fact nothing surrounding the ideas associated with Jesus was to make anyone feel bad. Unfortunately mans interpretations led to institutionalized structures of pain and suffering, a necessary path to eternal happiness.
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.
If there is an annual holiday tree lane in your community, you can drive down the street each year and let your kids enjoy the sight of elaborately decorated houses and Christmas trees. If the weather permits, everyone can enjoy a stroll. The entire family can also get some inspiration here, about what decorations to hang on the tree back home. Making this part of the family tradition will let the kids see how other homes celebrate their Christmas.
If you as a child often spent delightful hours in the kitchen with your Mom preparing Christmas dinner, your kids too will surely take pleasure in helping you out in the kitchen. They dont have to help you with the baking; they can make their own treats like putting frosting on the cake or making chocolate covered pretzels.
Why this time of the year is different is because so much of humanity is placing their attention on the goodness, the happiness and the love that is brewing. And if you understand that you can align with that massive energy force, you can ride the wave of workability. You do this by freeing yourself of any reason to be feeling less than happy. You just keep moving in that direction.
