Few months later Joseph and Mary came to Bethlehem. They stayed in a cowshed. That night Mary gave birth to Jesus. At that time shepherds were watching the sheep in the field. Gods angel appeared to them and announced that a savior was born. The shepherds went and adored the divine son. At the birth of Jesus a tail start appeared in the sky.
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.
Hot cocoa is another family tradition that your kids will surely love to experience. Let the kids have small cups of cocoa each night during the Christmas season. You can garnish each cup with stuff like marshmallows or whipped cream. Imagine the eyes of your kids light up as they have their hot and yummy hot cocoa in bed every night!
So this year take the joy the season evokes and get inside it by sharing it. Learn Jesus as the happy and joyful life force He is. After all Jesus was the absolute emotional mix of whatever God represents for anyone.
On the outset, Jesus had one message - that the purpose of life is the pursuit of joy. There is nothing more and nothing less. Without a single spoken word, Jesus, born of no worldly riches, brought the experience of joy to the world.
Yuletide wouldnt be complete without the good old Christmas carols. If you are planning to hand out giveaways to your visitors dropping by this holiday season to greet your family, a CD recording of your family singing carols will be a great idea. You can also decorate the CD case with copies of your pictures with holiday greetings written as well. You can make this a yearly family tradition, each CD containing a different set of Christmas tunes the entire family recorded.
