Wikisource has the text of the Catholic Encyclopedia article The Annunciation. Annunciation Life of Jesus : Ministry. The limit on gifts actually helps me more than it helps them. I get in Toys R Us and I too see all sorts of things that i know would bring smiles and screams when they open it but with my plan of 3 gifts I make wiser choices.
The combo of three changes every year, could be two toys and a book or one big toy and two small, whatever the combo it's 3!! Our kids also know the real story of St. That helped them understand that people aren't "bad" for doing the Santa thing; I didn't want them getting into a legalistic thing with it. One year though my son told a kid Santa WAS real but now he's dead.
That went over well. OUr kids each year participate in the shoebox gift from Samaritans Purse. You have to do it in November. But my kids LOVE it. We take the shoeboxes with us to Walmart and pack them as we shop. We watch the videos and that makes it more impactful too. Now you can even track it to see where your box goes in the world. I'm so stealing your idea of giving them money to choose to give away somewhere.
Love love love that idea. The kids pour over the World Vision catalogs of animals and gifts to give and they pick a gift to pull money together to do. Some years we've done garage sales etc. This year we are doing the traditional advent candles on Sunday night. My kids are 5, 7,7 and 10 and all four of them ask about it each week.
We also have a huge nail that was given to us and turned into an ornament. It's the first ornament you hang on the tree - you hide it deep into the tree. It's a reminder that Jesus came to die for us. We talk about it each year when we decorate the tree. Any little thing we can use that is a secular christmas thing that we can connect to Jesus we do.
That kind of thing. I am soo challenged by your post because it's just a reminder that we have so far to come. The timing of reading this was amazing because tongiht I'll be doing the budget for all our holiday spending. Love how God works His way into that. THank you Jenn!! Lynde - December 5th, at PM. I love you. Thank you so much. At Christmas I feel so isolated because we feel as if we are the only ones focusing on Jesus and not Santa. I have a 5 year old Reply. Hayley - December 5th, at PM. Love this. This is how my husband and I plan on raising our children!
A lot of people don't understand and argue that our kids will miss out on the excitement and the fun of Santa.
Not if we make celebrating Jesus just as fun and exciting. Fun and excitement need not be confused with getting things and stuff and junk. I actually have some posts on my own blog about materialism. Which I like to call Tasaj - things and stuff and junk. Love this post! Thank you for boldly sharing with us!
Rosemary Scoular - December 11th, at AM. There is a good book called "Unplug the Christmas Machine" written more to the culture but with many good ways to go about it. I loose my focus way too easily. We have minimized spending but struggle to reach my children who do not yet believe in Christ.
