This year as a family we chose to not exchange gifts. Instead we gave shoeboxes to Samaritan’s Purse through our church, and we gave to numerous charities that we felt would give most to children. Sure it’s nice to get gifts but Christmas is about Jesus’ birth. And as nice as it is to be gifted it’s better for young children to receive gifts.
Our immediate family is tiny so it’s not like we can trade names. We have extended families that are large. So we spend the holidays quietly going to Christmas Eve service at church ⛪️and Christmas Day is spent relaxing & remembering the story of Jesus Christ.
May each of you enjoy your holidays. Relax, breathe. Remind yourself that you want to make memories that last. If something goes wrong don’t fret. Just move on. Enjoy your family & friends. Happy Christmas!! 🎄✝️⛪️🙏🏻🎅🏼
