Celebrating With Christmas Traditions

Celebrating With Christmas Traditions

Christmas is definitely a wonderful time of the year.   Christmas for me includes so many special traditions.

I love to sing along to Christmas music as I decorate my home in celebration of that anticipated day.  I love to have lots of lights and sparkle.  My family teases me because no one can come to my house and leave without getting a bit of glitter on them.

It is also a time for family and friends to connect and celebrate at special dinners, parties, and get togethers.  The calendar seems to fill up quick with these but that is OK because it is this part that multiplies joy.

I also have the tradition of presents.  I absolutely love to give and receive presents.  It isn't about how much those presents cost or whether it is the latest greatest whatever.  It is about finding that special something that shows the receiver that you considered them.

I also thoroughly enjoy wrapping those gifts.  I like to make those gifts look really pretty under my Christmas tree.  Many people would consider wrapping gifts a drudgery but not me.   My tradition is to make a big pile of gifts to wrap on one side of me and all my Christmas wrapping materials on the other side.  I sit on my couch and pull my big round coffee table closer so that I can wrap in comfort.  Then I spend the time watching Christmas movies while wrapping the evening away.

This year, I think I will consider wrapping presents on a Sunday because Pure Flix is offering a free Christmas movie every Sunday the rest of December.  You can sign up for 1 Free movie every Sunday through December 24th and no credit card information is needed.  How great is that?  You can signup for the free movie every Sunday at the Pure Flix Signup Page. This is a great network that offers good wholesome, family-friendly movies that do not offend Christian values not to mention they also offer some great free homeschool resources in addition to their great lineup of pure clean movies.

As you go through the hustle and bustle of the holidays, remember to take a little time to savor and enjoy your traditions.
