It’s beyond belief how we’re already on the last month of the year. In fact, it’s less than 3 weeks now before Christmas comes. Has Christmas slowly making its way to your home yet? Here in our humble abode, our first week of December started off with putting up our Christmas tree, and of course with the star on the top.
I find this lovely quote about Christmas so touching and I want to share this with you. “The best of all gifts around any Christmas Tree: the presence of a Happy Family all wrapped up in each other”. It’s so true, the best way to celebrate Christmas is to be with our loved ones. Christmas may have various meaning for different people. However, Christmas is most importantly about family togetherness as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on that special day. Christmas is also a time of love and great joy whilst we bring out the spirit of giving in each and everyone’s heart.
Last Friday afternoon 4th December, we finally put up our Christmas tree, Yay! I was so excited, I mean the kids were so excited. We normally put up our tree 12 days before Christmas. But the kids kept bugging me about it, so we decided to put out our decors slightly early. Well, there’s nothing wrong with kicking off the festive season early. As soon as the decors were down from the loft where it had been sleeping for a year, the kids got enthusiastic and so eager putting up the tree. Having said that, it was initially a mess, most of the baubles were placed near the bottom of the tree upon Ruby’s reach and some were on top of each other, so I rearranged it and spread it around the tree. Actually, I have lesser job this year compared to the last few years as I got 2 helping hands with me this time.
With the tree up and some decors in place throughout the house, the festive mood is slowly creeping in me now. Well, it’s not only me, both my kids are in the mood for it too since they got their Letters from Santa this year. They’re so chuffed and proud of how our Christmas tree looks, their little efforts had paid off. I think that was the highlight of their day.
Additionally, we started a little tradition this year, we started them with an Advent Calendar. I think they’re the perfect age for it. Since 1st December, they both looked forward to their little treat after dinner time.
Have you put up your Christmas tree yet?
Did your little ones helped out too?
