5 tips for a simple Christmas season

Before you find your self frazzled and feeling overwhelmed with the holiday, we want to give you 5 tips for a simple Christmas season.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…..  OR is it?

Are you finding yourself trying to find the “right” gift?  Or stressing over the big family gathering?  Concentrating on all the world has to offer, just to find yourself making this holiday season very complicated?

What can we do to simplify the holiday?

Start first by slowing down and reflecting on the most important things.  Remember WHO we are celebrating.  Christ our Lord!  His entrance into this world was the most simplest of beginnings.

No lights, No rushing, No big fan fare!

Focus on things like family, traditions, making memories with our kids or grand kids   It’s SO easy to get caught up in the commercialization of this season, isn’t it?  If we are all honest we have all done that from time to time.

Kids don’t need MORE things this Christmas, they need more quality time.  (TWEET THIS)

Remember we don’t need MORE stuff or the bigger and better, it’s the eternal things that matter the most!

5 Tips for a Simple Christmas Season

If you find your self frazzled and feeling overwhelmed with the holiday….

  1. Take time & slow down….reflect on what is really important
  2. Remind yourself that the season is about our Saviors birth.
  3. Steer clear of t.v. for awhile & catalogs…they will bog you down on wanting MORE.
  4. Simplify as much as you can with decorations, gifts, & trying to have it all.
  5. Spend quality time with family & friends making memories.

This season CAN be joyous if we learn to be simple and stay focused on remembering:

Jesus is the Reason for the Season

 Luke 2:11  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

    In light of recent events, the idea of a simple Christmas is even more prevelant. There is no reason for big gifts and wants. The biggest present we all can receive is life itself.

    While my family and I do not celebrate Christmas, I teach my children that it is important to celebrate Christ in all we do and that our lives should be a testimony of His greatness and wonder. It is nice to read how other people come up with creative ways to celebrate Christ.

    I couldn’t agree more! Since my son’s birthday is close to Christmas I think we sometimes get caught up in the presents. I want it to be about Christ and thanking Him for all he’s done for us.

      @Laila @OnlyLaila,

      It’s sometimes hard not to get caught up in the gift giving when it comes to my children. I want to get them things I think they’ll enjoy but I also know that overindulgence makes for spoiled ungrateful kids, so I hold myself back from buying everything I can and want for them. Do you feel like spoiling your son during the holiday season? My son has a December b-day too. 🙂

    Wonderful, simple, perfect list. I’m not a big Christmas gift person, but the people around me are. I stay calm when I’m shopping, and always, ALWAYS bring it back to Jesus.

    I love this!!! I constantly tell my kids that we are celebrating Jesus and all the gifts belong to him. They love telling people how they celebrate Christ on December 25th. The gifts are a bonus:)
