Hi, and thank you for being a fan of ours! Today is our Sunday Funday, and if you’ve been coming here religiously, you know that we usually post about one of our authors or their characters, but today I want to take the time to talk a little about the best parts of Christmas…
At least for me.
God. Family. Fun. Traditions.
Give thanks. Be thankful if you have a roof over your head and food on your table. Give thanks if you are warm this Christmas, have family around you, if you’re still breathing.
Spend time with your family, and tell them as much as you can that you love them. You never know when your time is up, and you won’t get that chance for a very long time.
Have fun. Stop and relax a bit. Christmas is a time that can get super complicated and overwhelming. Put things down, get out a board game and challenge a family member to some fun. They will remember that more than the cookies, or the uber clean house.
Do something traditional or make a new tradition up for fun. Last year, our family started a new tradition: ice skating on Christmas Eve. Years before that, we didn’t do anything until the evening. Now our whole Christmas Eve is booked with fun traditions that the kids can’t wait for each year. Hot Cocoa: Christmas Jammies, Christmas tunes by the Piano (even though we don’t sound that great), Chocolate Chip cookies, a Christmas Movie (Our new tradition – Spongebob Christmas – you should try it. It’s hilarious.) We play board games, and open the “brother-sister” gifts as well as one gift from mom & dad. We even through out food for the reindeer, and of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus…
Have fun this Christmas, be safe and if you don’t have anyone to spend Christmas with and you’re in Ohio, you’re welcome to stop by. We always have an extra plate to share.
