The Christmas season is arguably one of the best times of the year. Especially as a young child, some of the fondest memories will be made this time of year.
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying all of the beautiful decorations surrounding you and enjoying family during this season, but Jesus should be at the center of all of our hearts and minds during the Christmas season.
Below we’ve compiled a few ways to keep Jesus at the heart of the Christmas season.
Add a Nativity Scene
A nativity scene is a great way to have a daily reminder for you and your family of the real reason for the Christmas season. Take the time to explain to your children what the nativity scene is and what it’s displaying.
Doing this will help your kids get a better grasp on the events that happened on the first Christmas.
Take Time with the Christmas Story
Most families open their bibles and read the Christmas story on Christmas morning before tearing into their presents, but how many read it more often during the month of December? Read this story multiple times and come up with questions to ask your kids at the end of each time.
By Christmas day, your kids will truly understand and grasp why we are celebrating Christmas.
Christ-Centered Christmas Cards
A very easy and relaxed way to share the true message of Christmas is to send out some appropriately themed Christmas cards. Most families pose for pictures and send those out, but why don’t you try sending out a card that’s more Christ like this year?
Maybe add an important part of scripture to your card this year along with the photo of your posing family.
Wear Christian Christmas Clothing
It’s not uncommon to wear festive clothing this time of year, why don’t you try tossing in some Christian-based Christmas clothes in your wardrobe this year? You could even go as far as getting your entire family matching ensembles and go out and spread the word about Jesus’s love and the real reason for Christmas.
Keeping the real reason for celebrating close to heart around the holiday season is important for you and your family. Teaching your kids, the true reason now will encourage them to teach others in the future.
