Magical. That is probably the best word to describe how our daughter sees Christmas. There’s a baby who was born thousands of years ago to a Virgin who ended up saving us from our sins. There is this big guy named Santa who brings toys to children all over the world. There are reindeer that fly, snowmen that talk, and angels that sing to shepherds. Could it get more magical and wonderful than all of that?
Today, escape from your adult logic and believe. Allow yourself to feel the wonder and majesty that is Christmas. Re-read the story of the birth of Christ and talk about what it must have been like to live during that time in our history. Make up a story with your child about what reindeer eat or what the elves do when Santa is away from the Pole. Find ways to see Christmas through a child’s eyes and delight in the joy of it all!
