Christmas Should be about Christ

Christmas Nativity
   It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  I love putting the Nativity out, more than anything else. 

   It just brings me back to remembrance to what Christmas is all about, it's about Christ.

   I am usually right in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, but, this year for the first time, I've slowed down and am enjoying just taking everything in stride. 

   What's the rush anyway?  Christmas will come and go before we know it, just like all the Christmas's past. 

   Hope you are not so hurried this year; it's nice to take time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.
   A neighbor just told my husband, he hated Christmas, and then he said, " no I don't hate Christmas, it's just the money you have to spend.  He said he spent $1200.00 yesterday. 

   Christmas shouldn't be about presents, or the money we spend;  it should be about Christ. 

   I recall reading that one Christmas, Michael Landon and his family did an all homemade Christmas.  If they didn't make, it they didn't give it.  I thought what wonderful memories that left his family with, after he was gone. 

   This year, at our daughter's request, we are planning an 'Old Fashioned Christmas,' stringing popcorn for the tree, making popcorn balls, and taffy.  Now, I haven't made taffy since she was a little girl, so that might be a hoot!  However it turns out, it will be fine.  We'll have a good time, anyway. 

Hope you have a Blessed Christmas Season, wherever you are.



  1. Sounds like a great old fashion Christmas....Blessings and enjoy the days to come.

  2. I so agree! I believe each Christmas should be a homemade Christmas with old fashioned treats and memories that will last a lifetime!

    Sounds like a good tradition to me!
