Are your kids going nuts about Christmas?

Posted on 12/25/2016 by Greg Yoder

“My kids? What about me?” If you’re anything like me, you get more excited about Christmas than the kids do. Now that my youngest is 17, that’s definitely the case. I’m ALWAYS the first one up, usually around 6. Why? I’m not sure. I think it’s a combination of nostalgia, anticipation, and the excitement about a day where we can not only provide gifts to those we love, but honor the One who loves us most. I know your kids are probably talking about presents, presents, and more presents. Help your kids think about something other than materialism. Keeping the Word opened during this time is key to that—reading the Christmas story, maybe having them act it out. Will they like it? Maybe not, but it is planting spiritual seeds.

Suggested Reading: Luke 2
