5 Ways to Make Christmas Memorable for Your Children
Your children, no matter how old they are or how much they pretend to be mature will always be kids to you and whatever you do is bound to leave an impression on them. They look at you, look up to you and also catch on to most of the things that you do. Since you have such a hold over them either consciously or without any plans, you can use it to create a truly memorable Christmas for your children. To make it truly memorable, remember that it has to be different and full of meaningful rather than a gift fest where there are inundated with gifts that carry no special significance. Here are some ways in which you can make Christmas truly memorable for your kids.
1. Create a Christmas calendar
You can create a special Christmas calendar for the month of December and fill it up with special Christmas tasks and chores that need to be done. Involve them in any Christmas activity that you are doing so that you create anticipation in them for Christmas.
2. Take them to church on Christmas
If you are a family that does not go to church as a family, then take them to church for the Christmas. Make it a truly family holiday by sticking to each other the whole day where each of you sacrifice your alone time and do things together as a family, be it cooking, eating, shopping or just watching TV.
3. Take them to a different country
Take them to see Christmas in a country that is completely different from yours. You can take them to Brazil for instance, where Christmas is celebrated in a much more colourful and religious way than in the states.
