Christmas is just about 2 weeks away. Have you finished with the preparations already? Christmas preparations need not be the stressful. In our family, we see it as a way to remember God’s mercy and unfailing love upon His people. We decorate the house remembering how this tradition actually started many years ago and what it really means. It is not just some meaningless tradition but we decorate to remember Christ who came to the world to die for our sins and was raised again.
There are several decorations that we usually do, the Christmas tree, the lights and the Parol. We have not yet tried the Christmas stocking as we always try to focus Christmas on giving to others rather than expecting something for ourselves during the season. But every now and then, I see some cute decorations that is nice to put up. I have seen some personalized Christmas stocking from The Warm Biscuit Bedding Company. I think it would actually make a good decoration for the room of the kids. These personalized Christmas stockings are made from fabrics that are handsewn. The designs are made with fun designs, whimsical fabrics and can be personalized with up to 10 letters. What a fun way to add character to their room and bring a personal touch to it too.
Instead of filling it up with gifts for them, we fill the stockings with gifts that the kids want to share with others. Each child chooses a toy which they like and share it with a less fortunate child. This way, they learn to share what really matters, and not just something that they don’t want. It is a wonderful way to focus on giving using Christmas stockings.
