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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The easiest way to make what I am talking about here real is to look and keep looking for the evidence that joy is all around you, and when you begin than process, you will begin to see small things happening all around you. Dont stop, keep looking and feeling the better feelings that come with it.
