Joy is the dominant emotion of the Christmas season. The emotion is such a strong vibration that when you are aligned with it, you experience your life as magical and wonderful. When things are not working as you would like, when you are feeling less than happy, you are simply misaligned. When you fall into a state of bliss, magic happens. I say, when you fall into it because so few are skilled at the knowing of how to set up the condition in which it is natural.
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.
It neednt be just a replay from the past. Suppose we caught up to the clearest understanding of the message of Jesus and by doing so change everything. When He said, Ask and it is given, it was literal and when we learn how this works you will wonder why it was you never were taught this at a younger age.
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.
When you hear a Christmas carol, you cant help but be reminded of those happy Christmas times during your childhood. What particular childhood memories are brought back every year? The ones you can think of are most likely the traditional ways of celebrating Christmas. Children these days will surely enjoy a few traditional holiday celebrations that your parents established yearly when you were young. Maybe you can decorate cookies with your kids. Maybe you can try to whip up a few treats with the help of your kids. There are always ways to recreate those special holiday family traditions and let your kids experience them.
