What are your plans for the coming Christmas season? A few months or days from now, we will be celebrating again another Christmas season.
This is a yearly or annual celebration commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ. It’s a religious and traditional way of celebration by countless people all around the globe. It’s a sacred religious holiday, and it’s the most favorite holiday by many families, including our family because it’s a season of thanksgiving and sharing. Though we must share our blessings even without any occasion, the spirit of Christmas season is truly a unique one.
The thought of Christmas season for our family are not the material things that each one will be receiving, but it’s the presence and love that we share to one another.
Here are some ideas on how to feel and spend the spirit of Christmas!
My oldest son will always tell me this, please Mom, can we decorate now? Christmas season is near! This is important to kids as they love seeing Christmas decorations because it adds to how they feel, and we all know that kids are fun of fantasies and magical thoughts. Simple decorations can do, and I’m confident if you have kids, they will love it too.
This is also a very jolly thing for kids! They love surprises, they thought as if someone invisible out there put some coins, candies or any small presents (gifts) to the Christmas sock, but in fact their loved ones were the ones who did it.
Here in our country, we often celebrate the Christmas Eve by attending the midnight mass first. Time to thank the almighty for all the blessings in our life. It may not be a perfect year, we experienced difficult times, but there are things that we should always be thankful for! The gift of life, love, and family.
Then, after the mass the family will eat together, we call it the “Noche Buena”. Whatever food is present at the table, the thought of eating a meal with your loved ones this once in a year Christmas gathering is such a big blessing already.
After eating, we will give our prepared Christmas gifts and play some games for entertainment and to keep the moment alive and happy. Kids and kids at heart loves this so much!
We have our own and unique ways on how to celebrate this Christmas season, hopefully you will be able to celebrate this with your family with a heart full of love, joy, peace, and fun!
