Christmas hasn't changed, it's all about what you want it to be.. We still bake for family and friends; they love our homemade gifts and the kids are delighted with their reaction. We make an advent wreath for the 1st Sunday in Advent and light it every day, with an appropriate prayer; the kids are in the Christmas pageant at church; we buy gifts for children in a shelter. We craft gifts for teachers and friends. We make ornaments of seeds, fruit, suet and peanut butter and decorate the trees for the birds and squirrels. We have a Christmas tree, lots of presents and the whole Santa thing, but the kids know there is a lot more to Christmas than Santa. Christmas is an excellent chance to reinforce the Christian lessons we teach all year.
