What comes to mind when you think about Christmas? Do the words presents, money, debt, food come to mind? Does your family get together every Christmas? It should be about spending time together as a family. Some people are rushing to the stores to get the newest electronic item for their child. People are looking for the best deals. Couples go broke because they want to show their love by getting fancy presents to each other or their children. There some couples that do not buy each other a gift or they may just buy a gift for the house itself.
Warning My opinion: Christmas is Jesus Birthday, as he is the reason for the Season.
Spend time with your family while the kids are on Christmas break
Donate some toys to Toys for tots or another worthy cause for the season. Maybe have the kids get rid of some of their toys they do not play anymore and explain there are kids around that do not have many toys that could use those toys.
Attend a Christmas Eve church service together as a family
Drive to see some Christmas lights as a family that may be in the area
Read some Christmas stories or the original Christmas to your children days before Christmas
Go to a soup kitchen/food pantry and help pass out food to those that are less fortunate than your own family. Your family will feel good because they are doing something good for others.
Do some Christmas caroling with a group at a nursing home.
Remember just because you may have money does not mean you have to spend a great deal to have a great Christmas.
Christmas should be about family. A time to get together and enjoy the time you have together. A family watches and smiles as the little open or tear the wrapping paper off the gifts. One day your family may not get together anymore. It may be because everyone is busy or because matriarch is gone. These should not be reasons why the family stops getting together. Make sure you tell them you appreciate them during this time of year. Christmas is not always about money and what you get, it can be about family.
