It is officially Christmas Season! How does that make you feel? Looking at my Calendar it is already booked and I am sure I am not the only one! So we are going to keep this month’s Family Challenge simple and hopefully something you are already doing.
This month’s challenge is to take a picture (or pictures) that captures how you bring the Christmas Spirit into your home and post it to your favorite social media with the tag #ChristmasFamilyChallenge. This could be a favorite family tradition (like baking cookies together), attending a Christmas concert or shopping/wrapping gifts for a family in need. Other ideas…12 Days of Christmas, evening Christmas sing alongs, visiting a live Nativity, dancing to Christmas music, visiting family, participating as a Christmas Caroler, etc. You can leave a comment below to share additional ideas.
One of my kiddos’ favorite family traditions is being a part of the “Christmas Story” by acting out the Nativity while someone reads the verses from the Bible. I think this is a great way to bring the Christmas Spirit into our home and to help recenter our focus on the true purpose of The Season. I was lucky enough to capture this shot last year with my niece and my youngest daughter when she was 1.5 months old.
