With barely a month left for Christmas, is it any wonder that smiles are wider and happiness is in the air? Christmas heralds the birth of unconditonal love, as it did two thousand years ago, when Jesus Christ came to earth. The birth of baby Jesus is a symbol of a new awakening, the dawn of hope, that will save the world of its evils.
Christmas season brings about a flurry of activity in every household. Many families like to plan their vacation in advance so that they do not miss out on the best deals. Some like to invite their dear ones over for Christmas, while others travel to far off places to enjoy the best of Christmas.
Christmas shopping has begun with shoppers making a beeline for the early bird discounts. If you are buying gifts for your friends and family, start now, so that you can make the most of your resources. Also plan your Christmas menu, if you intend to call friends and family over for a meal.
Get into the Christmas spirit with the holiday classics. My favorite is Elf, that always puts me in a cheerful mood. Kids will enjoy watching Home Alone, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, White Christmas, and Scrooge. Get your kids to make Christmas decorations at home. Help them send out Christmas cards with beautiful Christmas sayings written on them.
Share the story of A Christmas Story to teach young kids the values of selflessness and love. Christmas is all about sharing, so get the young ones started early in life. If you like, you can even take them to a charitable home, where they can donate their old toys and clothes. A good deed will make them feel proud.
