    This is so good!! My mother in law just bought my kids a jelly bean advent calendar that had NO faith in it at all!! I was trying to be thankful but I was secretly mortified!

  2. I struggled with helping my kids understand the meaning behind every holiday. It is so easy to get wrapped up in the decorations and celebrations and not understand the reason. Great post!

    I love the three gifts idea. I also try to make sure my girls are always mindful that Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas.

  4. Now that we’ve become Orthodox, Christmas has taken on so much more meaning than we’ve ever experienced before! Starting tomorrow, we begin the Nativity fast as we prepare ourselves for the Incarnation. I’m so excited!!! Merry Christmas 😀

  5. This is all so important- Its so important to me that my little girl learns the reason for the season. For whatever reason it can be so easy to forget.

  6. I absolutely love this and thank you for reminding us all about the true meaning of Christmas. I plan to use your blog to teach my son about the meaning of the Christmas tree and Christmas lights. I never knew this before reading your post. Thank so much for sharing!

  7. Haha, okay thank you. I love Thanksgiving and everything but I so agree Christmas is THE best. I love that you are talking about the true meaning of the season too. That is so important
