How To Make Christmas like Christmas Again

by Danette M. Scott










In a materialistic world Christmas seems like just another holiday made especially for the me generation. Generations past fortunately celebrated Christmas more as a family or religious holiday rather than a shopping holiday. Christmas doesn't seem like Christmas any more with out an emphasis on the family or the celebration of Jesus Christ coming into this world as a man to redeem us from our sins. Here's how to make Christmas like Christmas again:




1.tell everyone that your placing a spending limit on gifts

2.gear the family toward the celebrating of being together, love and the birth of Jesus Christ

3.attend a religious service during the holidays

4.offer to make donations to charity as gifts for family and friends

5.engage family and friends in a new tradition of donating or working for charities this season

6.involve the the whole family and friends in activities for the Christmas season

7.take the emphasis of gift receiving and place it on love for each other

8.visit relatives and friends who are in-firmed or cannot get out

9.visit elderly people you know or invite them over to share a meal during the season

10.provide activities at your celebrations that are spiritually uplifting for everyone involved like caroling or baking cookies



The Christmas season should be a celebration of love and not of the me generation. Place family, God and love above the almighty dollar and you can effectively return to the old values that surround the Christmas season. It is love that puts the “magic” into Christmas.

Most terrific! Liked this one. A lot. Make certain to remember to "highlight" this one next November until the end of January. As, at that time, many will want (and may need) to read it.

Happy trails,

Ed Bradley.
