What are your plans on the coming Christmas season? I’m writing this post a month before the Christmas, so it’s few 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 a lot of people all around the globe. It’s a sacred religious holiday and it’s the most favorite holiday by a lot of 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.
Maybe it’s far different how our family and yours will celebrate this year comparing to the usual, but what’s important is that our family are together. 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 each one of us.
Here are some ideas on how to feel and spend the spirit of Christmas!
My oldest son will always tell me this, please mommy can we decorate now? Christmas season is near! This is very 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 will do and I’m sure if you have kids, they will love it too.
This is also a very jolly thing for kids! They love surprises, they thought of this as if someone invisible out there had put some coins, candies or any small presents (gifts) to the Christmas sock.
Here in Asia 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 tough times but there are things that we should always be thankful at! The give 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 meal with your loveones this once in a year Christmas celebration is such a true blessing.
Then after eating we will give our prepared Christmas gifts and play some game entertainments 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’ll celebrate this with your family with a heart full of love, joy, peace and fun!
