So, last Christmas my DS was old enough to recognize & enjoy the holidays. I got so focused on Santa that about a week before, and to my embarassment, I realized that I had fallen way short of telling him about Jesus' birth! This year, DS is participating in Sunday School, and I am also making sure that I explain Advent and that we're waiting for baby Jesus to come on Christmas. His preschool participates in special service projects throughout the year, and they will be teaching the children about giving to others during this season as well.
Has anyone else gotten so involved in the holiday rush and taken the true meaning of the season for granted? How do you balance the secular and spiritual aspects of the holidays with your families?
