The first step to getting into the Christmas spirit during the holidays, is to remember what Christmas is really about. Christmas of course is Jesus Christ’s birthday. Birthdays are meant to be celebrated and enjoyable.We have adopted many different customs that we like to pass on. Some like to practice gift giving and possibly getting one in return. Exchanging gifts is usually the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about Christmas. We tend to forget sometimes what Christmas is really about.
Decorate your home with Christmas lights and decorations. It is a custom to put up a Christmas tree and decorate it as well. This should be a time for the entire family to come together and help. Have everyone gather round and participate in the decorating. It is delightful to have times like these.
You can even hang up Christmas lights outside on your house . Hang the lights in a decorative fashion along your house. There are specially designed lights for outside use. They are much more durable and can withstand temperaures.
You can even decorate trees, shrubs, or lawn ornaments outside of your home in your yard. This is a great way to get into the Christmas spirit! Simply wrap the lights around the shrubs and drape them on trees. You can also get actual plastic mounts for outside.
Try having a family dinner on Christmas. This is a great time for families to gather and socialize. Since it is His birthday, it is also a good idea to say a prayer in thanks before eating dinner together.This is a good practice for all to enjoy.
