Family Christmas Tips

Spending your Christmas with family

Much before Christmas comes, the mood around the world changes. Perhaps you notice it in your family, too. It is the anticipation of lovely days ahead of giving joy, meeting friends and family and feeling the spirit in the air that changes the most negative person to positive moods. Chistmas makes a person different. The same man, who you never see smiling, laughs during Christmas. That is the festive spirit of Christmas and that is why it is a lovely festival.

The Story of Santa Clause

The Story of Santa Clause

Christmas is the happiest time for the whole family. When we think of Christmas, we think of family, presents, Christmas tree, and of course of Santa Clause. If you don't know the origins, let's dwell deeper into the legend of Saint Nick, the protector of children.


Giving gifts time

The most important part of Christmas is of course celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Another ritual of Christmas that makes it so special is giving. We send so many cards to friends and family that we lose the count. Similarly giving gifts is very important. Selecting the right gift for everyone, wrapping it lovingly and sending it across, all this is joyful. This joy cannot be described in words.

Carry the spirit of Christmas

As I said earlier, it is the giving that is the major reason of happiness. If we look at our moods and behavior, we find that we always derive greater joy in giving compared to receiving. Can we not celebrate this spirit of giving everyday? Can we not get this joy everyday? Can we not make someone happy everyday? We can.

With conscious effort, we can do one act a day that makes somebody genuinely happy. Why not carry the spirit of Christmas all the year and enjoy the happiness of giving. One is blessed when one gives. Let us get these blessings round the year.
